It appears that the FORE ASX1000 switches and Ascend Switches do some
manipulation of the settings you give them. The Ascend switches allocate
[SCR (in cells)] * 1.35 as your CAC (Connection Admission Control) and
leaves the PCR untouched. The ASX1000 allocates it as [SCR (in cells)] *
1.75 and leaves the PCR untouched. We recalculated the SCRs to equal out
and this solved the problem.

Formula looks great (interesting). However certainly (Cisco) AIP's don't
shape sufficiently accurately for (Cisco) BPX's not to cause the
occassional discard. I figured Lightstreams might be the same.
In our case the relevant supplier changed CDVT and it fixed this.
