Previous papers have described and evaluated theperformance of the Early Packet Discard techniquefor maintaining packet integrity during overload inATM switches.In this paper a packet discard scheme is proposedwith the goal to provide both good performance interms of throughput and fairness in terms of band-width exploitation of the output link among all vir-tual circuits. In the scenarios here considered, theproposed discard scheme is shown to provide verygood results and to represent therefore a remarkableimprovement of the classical Early Packet Discard.Numerical results are reported and discussed forcomparing these two discarding schemes under dif-ferent operating conditions.
