Title: Method for measuring ATM cell rates

Abstract: In the transmission of ATM cells, there is often the requirement to: This measurement is usually implemented within a fixed time interval but this can be problematical insofar as this type of measurement leaves the type of connection out of consideration. The invention alleviates this situation in that the traffic characteristic of the ATM cells functions as the criterion for when a measurement is to be implemented.
