Previous papers have described theEarly Packet Discard tecnique for maintaining packet integrity during overloadin ATM switches and evaluated the performance without properlydiscussing the role of End-of-Message cells in transmittedpackets. In this paper the performance, in terms of fraction ofthe link's capacity used to carry complete packets, are evaluated consideringdifferent ways to manage last cells ofAAL5 packets. This will be shown to be important for the end receiverand to require one extra control bit both to be able to cope withthe problem of merged packets and to have good performance.
