ALSO CALLED: Asynchronous Transfer Mode Networks, ATM Services, ATM Carrier Services, ATM
DEFINITION: ATM (asynchronous transfer mode) is a dedicated-connection switching technology that organizes digital data into 53-byte cell units and transmits them over a physical medium using digital signal technology. Individually, a cell is processed asynchronously relative to other related cells and is queued before being multiplexed over the transmission path.Because ATM is designed to be easily implemented  …

VPLS: The Switched Ethernet
sponsored by AT&T Corp
WHITE PAPER: Virtual Private LAN Service is evolving into the next "in" technology. AT&T defines it as any-to-any Ethernet that can be either metro or long haul. VPLS allows enterprises to scale bandwidth and is a good fit for customers who require meshed connectivity and want to control and manage routing.

ATM NETWORKS DEFINITION (continued): … ATM (asynchronous transfer mode) is a dedicated-connection switching technology that organizes digital data into 53-byte cell units and transmits them over a physical medium using digital signal technology. Individually, a cell is processed asynchronously relative to other related cells and is queued before being multiplexed over the transmission path.Because ATM is designed to be easily implemented by hardware (rather than software), faster processing and switch speeds are possible. The prespecified bit rates are either 155.520 Mbps or 622.080 Mbps. Speeds on ATM networks can reach 10 Gbps. Along with Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) and several other technologies, ATM is a key component of broadband ISDN (BISDN).ATM also stands for automated teller machine, a machine that bank customers use to make transactions without a human teller.
