For future Broad band ISDN, Asynchronous Transfer
Mode (ATM) is designed not only to support a wide range of traffic
classes with diverse flow characteristics, but also to guarantee the
different quality of service QOS requirements. The QOS may be
measured in terms of cell loss probability and maximum cell delay.
In this paper, ATM networks in which the virtual path (VP)
concept is implemented are considered. By applying the Markov
Deterministic process method, an efficient algorithm to compute the
minimum capacity required to satisfy the QOS requirements when
multiple classes of on-off are multiplexed on to a single VP. Using
the result, we then proposed a simple algorithm to determine different
combinations of VP to achieve the optimum of the total capacity
required for satisfying the individual QOS requirements (loss- delay).
