ATM NETWORKS: Concepts and Protocols, Second Edition

by: Sumit Kasera


Abstract: Networking technologies are playing a pivotal role in networking our world. Among the networking technologies that are relevant today, ATM is one of the most popular and pervasive as it seamlessly integrates local area networks and wide area networks. Further, as it provides a single platform for voice, video and data, it facilitates convergence. ATM Networks: Concepts and Protocols is a single-stop reference on this technology. The revised edition of this book covers the relevant concepts, the three layers of ATM protocol reference model, core concepts of ATM networks (including signaling, routing and traffic management), interworking aspects and the application of ATM networks. Other notable changes in the second edition include: 1. Four new chapters on the application areas of ATM-ATM in MPLS Networks, Voice over ATM, ATM in DSL Networks and ATM in 3G Networks. 2. Three chapters on the core concepts of ATM-AAL2 Signaling, ATM Security and ATM Network Architecture and Interfaces. 3. Glossary and Review Questions. Profusely illustrated, this book provides fresh perspectives and makes comprehension of a rather difficult subject very easy. With this coverage, it will serve the needs of networking professionals and students.
