Recent advancements in network technology allow integration of different services on the same networking infrastructure. Thus, voice, data and video or multimedia traffic share the same transmission, switching and storage resources over a single network. This integration offers the user a single access facility to all communication services through a unified interface. Since Asynchronous Transmission Mode (ATM) networks support diverse services such as voice, data, video, etc., therefore, ATM has been chosen for the use in the Broadband Integrated Service Digital Networks (B-ISDN). In this paper, the authors have developed a queuing model for the ATM networks in which three types of traffic e.g. voice, data, and video are considered.
