ATM Transport and Network Integrity
Theodore Wu, Noriaki Yoshikai
This book will help network engineers take better advantage of ATM technology for their transport network planning. ATM Transport and Network Integrity offers useful information for network planners to design and evolve cost-effective networks. The book focuses on methods of network design to ensure proper network function under stress, such as congestion or failure. ATM Transport and Network Integrity discusses the most efficient methods of support for broadband service and control transport in high-speed transport networks, network services, and transport architectures and control and management. It covers in detail the differences between ATM and STM transport and how these differences affect transportnetwork planning and engineering.
