Overview

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) is the high-speed networking technology that promises to speed up bogged down networks with mixed LAN and WAN environments. This book offers a "how to" approach to ATM implementation from the perspective of network specialists responsible for the design, deployment, and day-to-day operation of the ATM-based network. Covers fault management, performance management, configuration management, accounting management, security management, LAN emulation and virtual LANs. For corporate network planners and managers interested in bringing ATM to the organization.
