This report develops a practical method for connection admission control in ATM networks. The method is based on a virtual cell loss probability criterion, is designed to handle heterogeneous traffic types and allows each traffic source to be described by an individual finite-state model with as many states as are needed to describe the source traffic. To make connection admission decisions with respect to individual links, an aggregate finite state model is computed from the individual models and used to estimate the virtual cell loss probabilities. To reduce the computational requirements for maintaining the aggregate traffic model, the aggregate model uses quantized data rates and is maintained incrementally using direct numerical convolution. The approximations required by the quantization process can be done in a strictly conservative way.
