This paper describes network resource management techniques which are the key to exploiting the benefits of VP-based ATM networks. In ATM networks, the Virtual Path (VP) concept has been established which enables separation of the logical path capability from the physical interface structure. This is an inherent benefit of VPs and will greatly enhance network flexibility and performance. However, the benefits of ATM can only be utilized through a new network resource management technique and a Usage Parameter Control technique, which are described in this paper.
