Abstract—This paper presents the basic features of a modern Telecommunication switching Technique; The Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM). It further discusses Genetic Algorithm, it’s sequence of operations, and application areas. With reference to an ATM Quality of Service parameter; Cell Transfer Delay (CTD), three GA selection mechanisms are in turn applied in the control of the Alternate Bit Rate (ABR) and Variable Bit Rate (VBR), ATM classes, finally, test results and subsequently, the best selection Mechanism for the network are elucidated.
—Alternate Bit rate, Asynchronous Transfer mode, Genetic Algorithm, Variable bit rate.
