Description Multimedia traffic can tolerate some loss but has rigid delay constraints. A natural QoS requirement for a multimedia connection is a prescribed bound on the the fraction of traffic that exceeds an end--to--end delay limit. We propose and analyze a traffic management schemes which guarantees QoS to multimedia traffic while simultaneously allowing for a large connectioncarrying capacity. We study our traffic management scheme in the context of a single node. In order for the node to guarantee QoS, each connection's traffic is regulated. In order to support many connections, the link statistically multiplexes the connections' traffic. The scheme consists of (i) cascaded leaky-buckets for traffic regulation, (ii) smoothers at the ingresses, and (iii) bufferless statistical multiplexing within the node. For this scheme we show that loss probabilities are minimized with simple one--buffer smoothers which operate at specific minimum rates. We also show that the worst--case input traffic is e...
