The advent of Information Highways has recently been heralded as the next generation of communication networks. Consensus has it that these highways will be based on ATM networks. However, despite the tremendous progress in the development of ATM technology, there are still many problems to resolve, such as bandwidth allocation, congestion control and quality of service. The emphasis of this publication is on high speed networks and it addresses many of these problems. Contributions, sourced from experts across the field, are organized around the following topics: high speed LANs and MANs, performance of ATM switch architectures, congestion control and error recovery, quality of service, protocols, protocol measurements and implementation, and ATM motivated queueing theory.
