    The introduction of ATM is being propelled by the need for fast data communications in public and private networks. What is needed is a clear picture of protocol architectures and traffic characteristics of the various applications to be supported both now and in the future. The authors discuss ATM network architectures with special focus on the support of connectionless LAN interconnection and sh... View full abstract»

    The interconnection of connectionless LANs and MANs over a connection-oriented B-ISDN presents a dilemma with regard to efficient interoperability. In order to provide solutions to this dilemma, there have been many techniques proposed. We describe and evaluate the architectural and conceptual alternatives available for the implementation of a connectionless service for public ATM networks. We als... View full abstract»

    Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) is the first switching technology to be capable of supporting circuit switching and packet switching within a single integrated switching mechanism. This was one of the research goals that led to the development of ATM. Considerable progress has already been made in implementing constant bit-rate services, similar to conventional circuit switching, over ATM. The au... View full abstract»

    ATM offers increased bandwidth and greater flexibility and manageability. However, ATM's success as a LAN technology depends on its ability to provide LAN-like services compatible with existing protocols and applications. The authors address the various issues in the design and implementation of the Internet Protocol (IP) in the evolving ATM LANs.<> View full abstract»

    The VuNet is a "desk-area" network where small switches are distributed throughout the work area, and multimedia devices usually found in the workstation are put on the network. This architecture has several advantages including distributed switching and the ability to share multimedia devices across a workgroup.<> View full abstract»

    Interest in wireless indoor communications has been spectacular. As we tend to need relatively broad bandwidths for such communication, the choice of carrier frequency would seem to be between the millimeter-wave/upper microwave bands and infra-red. The authors consider those systems which operate with one cell or multiple cells within a room. Such systems in the longer term must offer speeds comp... View full abstract»
