"...provides a history of ATM networks...describes...ATM architecture...deployment, and signaling" (SciTech Book News, Vol. 26, No. 2, June 2002)

From the Back Cover

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) has revolutionized telecommunications, and has become an integral part of the networking infrastructure.

This introductory well-structured text on ATM networks describes their development, architecture, congestion control, deployment, and signalling in an intuitive, accessible way. It covers extensive background information and includes exercises that support the explanations throughout the book.

The networking expert Harry G. Perros explains ATM networks, including such hot topics as:
* ATM adaptation layer 2

* Quality of Service

* Congestion control

* Tag switching and MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching)

* ADSL-based access networks

* Signalling

* PNNI (Private Network Node Interface)
An Introduction to ATM Networks is a textbook for graduate and undergraduate students in electrical engineering and computer science as well as a reference work for networking engineers.
