Abstract: - The Broadband Integrated Services Digital Network (B-ISDN) supports transmission of different types of data such text, audio, images, video and combination of these types of data at higher transmission rates. The Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) has been widely accepted as transfer mode for B-ISDN. Traffic management and congestion control are main issues in ATM networks. In this paper, we describe existing multi-agent system architecture for management of ATM networks. We developed a software module using java to automate the activities of agents in multi-agent system architecture for monitoring the traffic and controlling congestion in ATM networks. We described the steps followed in developed software module for controlling congestion and compared the advantages of usage of multi-agent system architecture over conventional approach for controlling congestion in ATM networks
