This book explains how you can use ATM right now as a remarkably powerful backbone for TCP/IP-based WANs and the Internet.
The book begins with practical descriptions of TCP/IP, SONET, ATM, and how they relate. Learn how ATM works, and about resources for managing ATM networks, including SNMP, ILMI and ATM routing. Take a close look at Classical IP over ATM, the TCP/IP transport solution proposed by the Internet Engineering Task Force; then consider the ATM Forum's recommendation, LAN Emulation. Learn how to manage ATM traffic - and how to tune and optimize your TCP/IP network running on an ATM backbone. From a member of the technical staff at XEROX PARC.
