    Abstract

    This paper presents the results of a case study performed for SURFnet bv. to determine if the time is ripe to introduce ATM SVCs into the Dutch ATM research network. The current state of the art in ATM SVCs is that vendors have been shipping SVC capable equipment for some time now. SVCs seem attractive, in the sense that they can be created on demand and instantaneously by the user, and that they are guaranteed to provide the QoS level that the user requested. In case of overload, however, ATM will no longer be able to accept new connections and users will experience denial of service. The question being addressed in this paper is whether such denial of service situations can be managed using current equipment and standardized solutions. Three strategies are being examined: is it possible to introduce different access policies for different users; is it possible to intervene in existing connections and is it possible to reduce network load by calling users to account? The outcome of the case study is that denial of service problems can not yet be managed properly. For this reason, and despite the availability of SVC capable ATM products, SURFnet decided to call off the introduction of ATM SVCs.
