9780070603622: ATM: Theory and Application (Mcgraw-Hill Series on Computer Communications)

This is a working manual of the theory and practical use of asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) technology and ATM-based services. Providing a real-life approach to the technology, this guide offers a high-level summary of all ATM protocols and services. It explains why ATM will provide standard protocol for voice, video and data integration in the 21st century. Also covered are the nuts-and-bolts of ATM network planning, congestion control and traffic engineering, as well as the source of each standard, and information on where to find additional details within the standards.

From the Back Cover:

The most current, most complete, and most "real world" guide ever on ATM.

This landmark reference is the ultimate "in print" database of ATM technology, services, and applications. Emphasizing practice over theory in an engaging, fun-to-read style, the authors present high-level summaries followed up with detailed treatment of all key areas of ATM technology. It is the only book that provides in-depth treatment of such "hot" new protocols as:

  • IP and Tag Switching.
  • Private Network Network Interface (PNNI).

  • LAN Emulation (LANE).

  • Understandable View of ATM Signaling.

  • Multiprotocol Over ATM (MPOA).

  • Available Bit Rate (ABR) flow control.

  • Internet ReSerVation Protocol (RSVP).

In addition, ATM Theory and Applications explores the remarkable range of ATM applications, objectively compares ATM with competing technologies, and even offers some provocative predictions about how ATM technology might evolve.

"This update to our best selling book not only provides a working tool for someone wanting to learn ATM, but also provides a reference for the practicing professional applying real-world solutions to business and technology problems."
