    The performance of a particular two-connected mesh network, the Manhattan street network, is compared with that of the distributed queue dual bus (DQDB) network, which has been standardized by the IEEE 802.6 Committee for MANs. Both of these networks have the same number of links, and the nodes have the same number of transmitters and receivers. A description of the topology and the access protoco... View full abstract»

    The use and deployment of asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) in a target of operating environments and administrative domains are discussed. The operating environments include wide area ATM, regional area ATM, local area ATM, desk area ATM, and local wireless ATM. The challenges of interdomain ATM are reviewed.<> View full abstract»

    The adaptor cards and driver software for workstations and local asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switches and switch control software used in an ATM local area network (LAN) system are discussed. It is shown that the ATM hardware and software components together provide services that are essential for ATM to be considered a realistic alternative to current shared-media LANs. These services includ... View full abstract»

    The concept behind Zeus, an asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) network implemented on the campus of Washington University, is discussed. The first phase of the project, which demonstrated the feasibility of the core technology, provided a basis for a more complete design, and served as a testbed for application development, is reviewed. The switch architecture, network control software, application ... View full abstract»

    The evolution of public telecommunication networks toward broadband integrated services digital networks (B-ISDNs) is presented. The asynchronous transfer mode (ATM), which supports B-ISDNs, and the B-ISDN protocol reference model are discussed. It is shown that the service offered by the ATM layer in the B-ISDN protocol reference model is equivalent to the service offered by the OSI physical laye... View full abstract»
