Over recent years, a considerable amount of effort has been devoted, b oth in industry and academia, towards the performance modelling, evalu ation and prediction of Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) networks. Thi s book describes recent advances in ATM networks reflecting the state- of-the-art technology and research achievements worldwide. In addition , it provides a fundamental source of reference in the ATM field.
