Abstract| An important parameter in ATM-based network design and management is the cell loss ratio (CLR) in ATM multiplexers. It is a key parameter to many vital functions in the network such as call admission control, bandwidth allocation, etc. However, the CLR depends usually on many unknown and unpredictable tra c parameters such a s input tra c correlations. In this paper, we propose a simple and robust fuzzy-based algorithm to predict the CLR in large-sized systems based on both a small

Unlike the model-based approaches, our approximation avoids the problem of assuming any tra c parameters or arrival process. This algorithm is used with real-time tra c measurement to propose an e ective measurement-based call admission control framework for ATM networks.
