The fabric-based ATM oriented local connectivity (FALCON), an ATM-based customer premises network (CPN), is described. FALCON supports access using traditional local area networks (LANs) such as Ethernet and token rings and supports a LAN emulation mode for its native ATM interface. This service allows a set of terminals, workstations, and servers to connect to the switch-based network and to interact as if they were attached to a traditional LAN. FALCON's backbone structure is based exclusively on ATM technology, all following CCITT or industry standards wherever they apply. The FALCON control structure is outlined.<>
