ATM is discussed in the context of market drivers, virtual networks, and impact of network congestion. ATM markets are growing as companies seek to upgrade their backbone communications infrastructure. ATM promises to be very competitive in price with other technologies. As this happens, significant growth will occur. ATM markets: WAN, enterprise, LAN, and PC are forecast in units and dollars. Market share information is detailed. Growth is anticipated for all networks segments. LAN environments will have significant growth as workers at every level share more data with each other and access more information electronically. In LAN environments, quality of service and reliability represent market drivers. Explosive growth opportunities for ATM at the client level are described. Decreasing price points in the desktop Atm-25 market segment represent a unique market growth factor. Enterprise systems markets will be driven by new Intranet implementations. Carriers promise to purchase ATM switches to compete more effective and efficiently with private networks and to implement new services including desktop video conferencing.

ATM broadband communications growth is evolving as networks become congested with the increase in data used for distributed processing. Competition with private networks, efficient delivery of enterprise data, virtual networks, video conferencing, and other data transactions represent significant market growth drivers.

- Replace private networks with broadband carrier ones
- Implement video conferencing
- Implement groupware
- Relieve overloaded frame relay and Ethernet LAN networks as a result of increases in computing speed and power
- Simplify access to the backbone
- Provide new open system technologies

Interconnect desktop computing power so it can be harnessed for enterprise use during time when employees not using computers
Support strategic partnering
Support suppliers, distributors, and sales force from the enterprise

ATM will simplify access to the backbone as other network systems become overloaded. ATM promises to be very competitive in price with other technologies. As this happens, significant growth will occur. ATM market growth is anticipated for all networks segments. LAN environments will have significant growth as workers at every level share more data with each other and access more information electronically.

Decreasing price points in the desktop Atm-25 market segment represent a unique market growth factor. Quality of service and reliability represent market drivers. Enterprise systems markets will be driven by new Intranet implementations. Carriers promise to purchase ATM switches to compete more effectively and efficiently with private networks and to implement new services.
