Executive Summary

Demand for quick access to Web-based applications and real-time delivery of multimedia transmissions via an integrated network infrastructure drives implementation of ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) broadband solutions. ATM is a high-performance technology that provides bandwidth on-demand for seamless transport of full-motion video, audio, data, animations, and still images in local and wider area environments. Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) is a cell-oriented switching and multiplexing technology that utilizes fixed-length packets to carry different types of traffic and also ATM will enable carriers to capitalize on a number of revenue opportunities through multiple ATM classes of services; high-speed Local-Area Network (LAN) interconnection; voice, video, and future multimedia applications in business markets in the short term; and in community and residential markets in the longer term.
