Put your data on the right route in your organization! The high bandwidth of Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) technology lets it transmit data,video,and sound without damaging data,making it attractive to corporations whose data must remain secure and reliable. But ATM data transport is complicated. Here's the first book to offer solutions to the entire range of problems encountered during ATM integration into large corporate systems. Two top networking experts describe the ATM protocol and architecture as they relate to carrying existing computer network protocols,and help you integrate ATM in a multiprotocol internetwork. Emphasis on corporate implementation helps you fully exploit ATM in real-life corporate settings. Detailed sections cover: Internetworking working models,shared media LANs,leading routing protocols,and switched LANs; ATM traffic management and ATM signaling; Problems and solutions in ATM transport of legacy protocols. Everything you need to know about ATM integration into TCP/IP,SNA,APPN,Novell,Net BIOS,and other networks is at your fingertips herein your best guide to ATM success!
