The fact that network traffic is increasing in intensity and diversity forces designers to solve not only current, but also anticipated future problems. Network traffic, also know as multimedia traffic, is mainly composed of Audio, video, and data. Network traffic is increasing at rates that call for improvement of network switching techniques to handle future traffic. Most of the proposed solutions will satisfy the demand. The objective of this research is to produce an ATM switching mechanism that handles traffic better than Zhang’s scheme, one of the leading mechanisms. Data obtained from simulation of Zhang’s algorithm is used as benchmark. The proposed algorithm and Zhang’s are simulated and tested using the best multimedia traffic modeling technique, the On/OFF SST. A comparison between results from simulation of both algorithms is presented to demonstrate the superiority of the former. Furthermore, this paper also demonstrates that the advantages of the new technique over Zhang’s include cost and time.
