ATM Passive optical network (ATM-PON) is a kind of low-cost access network for resident and small-business users while Usage Parameter Control (UPC) is an important traffic control function in such networks. The basic traffic control function in an ATM network is the combination of UPC, network parameter control (NPC) and connection access control (CAC). As the entrance of an ATM network, an ATM- PON must have the function of UPC to check it the cell streams entering the network comply with the traffic contract negotiated between the user and the network during the connection setup. In this paper the UPC parameters negotiation methods in ATM-PONs are introduced, and the control algorithms and their realization are also discussed with the necessary simulation results.
