This paper presents some of the analysis carried out as part of a
wide-ranging study of the performance of end-to-end communications
protocols over ATM networks. The aspect of the study presented here
analyses the performance of typical sliding-window protocols when
ATM virtual circuits (VC) are opened and closed dynamically as bursts
arrive for transmission. The focus of this study is to assess the
loss of throughput
due to the extra delay caused by each VC setup.
Both analytical and simulation evaluations
are presented. Our analysis shows that throughput loss can be quite
for short distance connections; the effect of VC setup delay may be
negligible for long distance
