"The fact that this is an 'essentials only' book makes it unique. It's a good book as an introduction to the new ATM technology."

-Matthew Scott, Software Engineer, FORE Systems

Anyone needing an introduction to the ATM network will find this book's unique approach a valuable asset in getting up to speed on this growing technology. Intended as a quick reference to the ATM network, Essentials of ATM Networks and Services begins with an overview of the technology and then provides an explanation of the services defined for ATM. Developed from an author-taught introductory course on ATM networks and services, this book covers every aspect of ATM while focusing primarily on the services-the various ways of handling information throughout a network. Some of the services included are:

  • ATM LAN emulation
  • IP over ATM
  • Multiprotocol over ATM
  • Frame-based access services
  • Audiovisual multimedia services over ATM
  • Inverse multiplexing over ATM
  • Circuit emulation service

In addition, the author addresses the impact of IP switching and XDSL, technologies that have been developed since the introduction of ATM. You will learn how they affect ATM services and what challenges they pose to the network.

Whether you are using IP over ATM, multiprotocol over ATM, PNNI, LAN emulation, or traffic management, this book is more than an excellent ATM reference: It clearly explains ATM technology and implementation to anyone involved in the design, deployment, or support of a corporate ATM network.
