Abstract

The performance evaluation of ATM switches is of paramount importance in designing an ATM network. In this paper, we focus on the evaluation of the cell loss rate (CLR) in nonblocking ATM switches using computer simulations. In particular, we investigate the potential of using importance sampling techniques as an 'superfast' alternative to conventional Monte Carlo simulation in finding the CLR in nonblocking ATM switches. We propose a 'split switch' method to decouple the input and output queue behaviors, along with the notion of regenerative cycles to achieve fast and accurate results. Numerical results will demonstrate that considerable computation cost can be saves using these proposed importance sampling techniques while maintaining a high degree of accuracy.
