In this paper we study the performance of ATM multiplexing of homogeneous MPEG video sources. A source scheduling method is developed to improve the performance of ATM multiplexer for MPEG video sources. Simulation results show that the level of burstiness for the aggregated MPEG traffic is reduced and the network performance is enhanced. Based on the rationale of the source scheduling method, a simple but efficient bandwidth allocation algorithm is also derived for connection admission of MPEG video in an ATM multiplexer.
