Abstract: In this paper, we present a study of the destabilizing effects of delay in
communications networks. We the apply results from a companion paper to find
the range of delays for which a Smith predictor controller guarantees the stability
of an ATM/ABR network.
Keywords: Time Delay, Stability, Smith Predictor
1. THE ATM/ABR EXAMPLE
Congestion control in the Available Bit Rate
(ABR) class of Asynchronous Transfer Mode
(ATM) networks poses interesting challenges due
to the presence of multiple-delays, magnitude and
