Because of the large statistical complexity of the traffic in communication networks, connection admission controls (CAC) often use only crude initial estimates of the required bandwidth for variable bit-rate (VBR) connections. This is one reason why on-line measurements of the existing network traffic have been proposed. The well-known effective bandwidth formulation or recent worst case bounds could be used by CAC. On-line methods of estimating the received quality-of-service of connections from `feasible statistics' could be used to modify the bandwidth allotment of such connections. Such bandwidth modifications occur at a time-scale between those of the packet level and connection (i.e., CAC) level.
