CLP - Lingo

Cell loss priority. Field in the ATM cell header that determines the probability of a cell being dropped if the network becomes congested.

Cells with CLP = 1 are best-effort traffic, which might be dropped in congested conditions in order to free up resources to handle insured traffic.
