A Modified Fuzzy policer for Asynchronous Transfer Mode is introduced. In a preceding fuzzy policer model the time window (time interval where ATM cells are accepted in the policer) is not synchronized with the source activity. In the proposed one, the time windows are not consecutive but are triggered by the first arriving cell. The modified policer gives good improvement to the selectivity, and minimizes the congestion over the path. This improvement can be significant for multiple channels.
