Introduction to ATM Networking
Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) network technology is hot! It has overcome the limitations of LAN and WAN technologies to solve problems that have plagued network designers from the start - from information transfer delays to error handling and congestion. Now this much-needed guide offers the first definitive treatment of ATM networking, covering everything from the fundamentals of building, using and maintaining ATM networks to advanced applications such as broadband data transfers, multimedia, and video. Written by a member of the ATM Forum, this is the ATM bible that telecommunications specialists, network designers, implementors, managers, planners, and support personnel have been waiting for.
