This paper presents a new feedback congestion control mechanism for the flow control in ATM networks. This new mechanism operates based on a statistical feedback scheme. By limiting cell transmission accelerations, the new mechanism can guarantee that there are no switch buffer overflows . Analysis and simulation results show that the proposed mechanism is effective.
