Shiv Kalyanaraman, Raj Jain, Sonia Fahmy, Rohit Goyal and Seong-Cheol Kim, ''Performance and Buffering Requirements of Internet Protocols over ATM ABR and UBR Services,'' IEEE Communications Magazine, June 1998, pp. 152-157.


The Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) networks are quickly being adopted as backbones over various parts of the Internet. This paper analyzes the performance of TCP/IP protocols over ATM network's Available Bit Rate (ABR) and Unspecified Bit Rate (UBR) services. It is shown that ABR pushes congestion to the edges of the ATM network while UBR leaves it inside the ATM portion.
