Packet switching...D4 Framing...SONET frame structure...VPI/VCI Translation/Compression...ILMI Services...The seemingly endless list of ATM technologies and their elements can be mind-boggling even for the most experienced engineer. Finally there's a single authoritative guide that provides a comprehensive picture of how all the parts of this complex technology work, individually and together. The book is designed to help communication hardware and software engineers better understand the role their work, or 'piece of the puzzle,' plays in this fast-moving, cutting-edge technology. Without delving heavily into technical detail, the book provides a thorough overview of the ATM process. Starting with a review of ATM standards, the book goes on to explain nearly 300 relevant topics, ranging from ATM Network Architecture, to Byte-Synchronous Mapping, to Multicasting, to ATM Gateway. With more than 200 illustrations clarifying important concepts, the book is the perfect desktop reference whenever a quick explanation or review is needed during the design process. Completing the book is a time-saving, comprehensive list of references, including ATM Forum, Bellcore, ANSI, ITU, and IETF documents.
