Abstract
Congestion control in the Available Bit Rate (ABR) class of Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)
networks poses interesting challenges due to the presence of multiple­delays, magnitude and rate
constraints on the inputs, amplitude limitation on the state, and additive disturbances. In this paper,
we consider a fixed­structure controller for an ATM/ABR network, and solve a robust tracking control
problem in which the target is a threshold on the queue level.
Keywords: Congestion control, data networks, magnitude and rate amplitude bounds, multiple
delays, tracking problem, ATM, ABR, QoS.
1 Introduction
The transmission of multimedia tra#c on the broadband integrated service digital networks (B­ISDN)
has created the need for new transport technologies such as Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM). Briefly,
