SUMMARY This letter studies the Peak Cell Rate (PCR) policing of ATM connections that consist of multiple cell flow components. It is shown that the conventional methods proposed for policing the aggregate flow do not use the network's resources efficiently. This letter proposes a simple and efficient UPC (Usage Parameter Control) mechanism based on a tandem leaky bucket for multi-component ATM connections. The results show that network resource requirements can be minimized, with reasonable hardware complexity.
