∗ 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.
