congestion indicator (CI)

The Congestion Indicator (CI) is a data field in the RM cell that causes the data source to lower its Allowed Cell Rate ( ACR). When an RM cell is sent, the data source sets the Congestion Indicator (CI) to 0. Setting the CI to 1 indicates that the Explicit Forward Congestion Indication ( EFCI) was received on an earlier cell.
