Title: Performance of TCP/IP Over ATM Networks Author: Mahbub Hassan and Mohammed Atiquzzaman
 

Summary: Title: Performance of TCP/IP Over ATM Networks
Author: Mahbub Hassan and Mohammed Atiquzzaman
Publisher: Artech House
Year: 2000
Foreword
The four key features introduced by ATM to the networking world are:
traffic management, quality of service, signaling, and service integration.
ATM has sophisticated traffic management designed specially for the high-
speed networks. ATM has feedback and negotiation mechanisms that allow
throttling traffic sources without loss. All other competing technologies
either have no traffic management or at best have loss-based mechanisms.
For very high-speed networks, loss based techniques can lead to long delays
and huge losses. ATM also has several service classes designed specifically
for various quality of service (QoS) requirements. Delay sensitive and delay
insensitive traffic is queued and serviced separately. Providing QoS requires
mechanisms for the users to specify to the network their traffic pattern and
QoS requirements. This is known as signaling. Finally, ATM was designed
primarily to allow data, voice, and video integration so that
telecommunications providers (voice networks) could move easily into the
data market.
