A practical guide to planning and managing ATM backbone networks for TCP/IP based WANs and the Internet, this title covers IP-over-ATM, LAN emulation, multicast, traffic management, and more. Extensive coverage is given of performance and scalability issues.

TCP/IP Over ATM Summary

TCP/IP Over ATM: A No-Nonsense Internetworking Guide by Berry Kercheval

Provides practical guidance for planning and managing ATM backbone networks for TCP/IP-based WANs and the Internet. After an overview of TCP/IP and ATM fundamentals, material compares pros and cons of two leading options for carrying TCP/IP options on ATM networks: the IETF's Classical IP-Over-ATM,
