"Simulation Experiments with Guaranteed Frame Rate for TCP/IP Traffic," ATM Forum/97-0607, July 1997

We study the effects of tagging, per-VC buffer allocation, and per-VC scheduling on providing GFR to TCP/IP traffic. We conclude that per-VC scheduling is necessary to provide GFR guarantees to TCP traffic. Per-VC scheduling alone is sufficient to provide minimum rate guarantees to the CLP0+1 stream. If the source end systems perform tagging (but not the network), then per-VC scheduling and per-VC buffer allocation are both required to provide GFR guarantees to the CLP0 stream.
