    Many of the most common protocols at layers two (media access), three (network), and above expect to operate over broadcast media such as IEEE 802.3/Ethernet or IEEE 802.5/token ring. LAN emulation provides a widely applicable means for transitioning these protocols to the connection-oriented ATM environment. A combination of centralized and distributed intelligence allows a star-plus-mesh topolog... View full abstract»

    As service providers introduce asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) into their networks, they are faced with the issue of technology interworking: for a given service, can a customer who has an ATM user-network interface (UNI) communicate with a customer who does not have an ATM UNI? For switched multimegabit data service (SMDS), technology interworking is well defined. In fact, SMDS is supported by s... View full abstract»
