From the Back Cover:

If you are an engineer in the computer, telecommunications or cable industries, this is the first ATM book that shows exactly how ATM can support your most promising applications. Authored by Timothy Kwok, Microsoft's Chief ATM Architect, this is a complete guide to three critical classes of Internet and intranet applications development:

  • Real-time streaming applications such as Internet telephony and multicasting live video
  • Real-time block transfer applications such as Web browsing
  • Non-real-time applications such as E-mail

Kwok describes the unique bandwidth, traffic and quality of service (QoS) requirements associated with each class of application, and offers new insight into engineering these applications for maximum performance and efficiency. The book also focuses on timely topics such as:

ATM-to-the-Home Architectures based on xDSL and HFC networks Broadband Internet service architectures using ATM ATM Forum UNI 4.0 and TM 4.0 specifications including ATM service categories and ABR service.

You will get an in-depth understanding of the technical rationale behind the ADSL service interoperability model published by Microsoft and industry-leading companies.
