Abstract

In this letter we study the problem of the optimal design of buffer management policies within the class of pushout and expelling policies for a shared memory asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switch or demultiplexer fed by traffic containing two different space priorities. A numerical study of the optimal policies for small buffer sizes is used to help design heuristics applicable to large buffer sizes. Simulation studies for large buffer systems are then presented.
