ATM is one of the key technologies used to support high–quality multimedia services. However, high–quality features, such as scaleability, high bandwidth and quality of service have resulted in a high level of complexity. The ATM signalling standards are driven by two organisations: the ITU–T and the ATM Forum and can be difficult to understand, especially for people without experience in standardisation work. Highly practical in its approach, ATM Signalling will explain all you need to know about how things really work, how to interpret the behaviour of systems, what problems may arise and how to find the solutions to such problems.

∗ Describes the key ATM protocols used in private networks

∗ Examines how the protocols work by tracing existing systems and applications under normal and erroneous conditions

∗ Presents the basic call functions as well as those that are built on top of call control such as Classical IP over ATM (CLIP), LAN Emulation over ATM (LANE) and Integrated Local Management Interface (ILMI)

By offering such practical advice in the crucial aspects of ATM signalling, this volume will have immediate appeal to network engineers, designers, managers and system adminstrators and will also become essential reading for hardware/software developers and postgraduate students.
