The former development has provided us with huge amount of transmission bandwidth. While the latter has made the transmission of all information including voice and video through a packet switched network possible.

With continuously work sharing over large distances, including international communication, the systems must be interconnected via wide area networks with increasing demands for higher bit rates.
For the first time, a single communications technology meets LAN and WAN requirements and handles a wide variety of current and emerging applications. ATM is the first technology to provide a common format for bursts of high speed data and the ebb and flow of the typical voice phone call. Seamless ATM networks provide desktop-to-desktop multimedia networking over single technology, high bandwidth, low latency network, removing the boundary between LAN WAN.

ATM is simply a Data Link Layer protocol. It is asynchronous in the sense that the recurrence of the cells containing information from an individual user is not necessarily periodic. It is the technology of choice for evolving B-ISDN (Board Integrated Services Digital Network), for next generation LANs and WANs. ATM supports transmission speeds of 155Mbits / sec. In the future, Photonic approaches have made the advent of ATM switches feasible, and an evolution towards an all packetized, unified, broadband telecommunications and data communication world based on ATM is taking place.

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)

ATM

Definition

Acronym for automated teller machine, a machine at a bank branch or other location which enables a customer to perform basic banking activities (checking one's balance, withdrawing or transferring funds) even when the bank is closed.

ATM Introduction
Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) is the CCITT standard for broadband ISDN. It supports integrated voice, data, and video communications both for services available and for future services not yet defined [12] [6]. In ATM the information to be transmitted in divided into short 53 byte packets or cells, which have a 5 byte header. The reason for such a short cell length is that ATM must deliver real time service at low bit rates and thus it minimizes packetization delay. ATM networks are connection oriented with virtual channels and virtual paths. The virtual channel carries one connection while a virtual path may carry a group of virtual channels. This ensures that cell sequence is maintained throughout the network. The virtual channel is identified by the Virtual Channel Identifier, (VCI), and the virtual path is identified by the Virtual Path Identifier, (VPI). Both the VCI and VPI may change within the network and they are stored in the header of the cell. There is a Payload Type, (PT), field in the header which indicated whether the cell is user data or connection management information and also to indicate congestion in the network. There is also a Cell Loss Priority, (CLP), bit which is set high to indicate that the cell is low priority and set low to indicate high priority. There is a Generic Flow Control, (GFC), field which is for further study, but is essentially used for controlling the source to network connection. The whole header is protected an eight bit CRC contained in the Header Error Control, (HEC), field. The typical header therefore looks like that shown in Figure 2 for the user to network interface as specified by the ATM Forum [1].

As ATM will be a broadband service the network will be a high speed one. To lessen the effect of the relatively slow processors within the network only a subset of functions will be carried out in the network. Error detection, correction, and flow control are done at the network edge rather than within the network. At the start of a call to set up a connection in terms of a virtual channel, there is negotiation between the user and the network on the parameters. Once admission is achieved the call is then monitored to ensure that it is compliant with the call setup paprameters. The network may drop low priority cells if congestion is about to or has occured. High priority cells may only be dropped when there are no lower priority cells left to drop. Services not sensitive to cell loss may have some low priority cells and these cells may be dropped. Because of this it is possible to get much higher utilisation than with previous networks

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)
An Overview of ATM

• ATM is Asynchronous Transfer Mode.
• ATM is originally the transfer mode for implementing Broadband ISDN (B-ISDN).
• In 1988, CCITT (from ITU) issued the first two recommendations relating to B-ISDN:
– I.113 Vocabulary of Terms for Broadband Aspects of ISDN
– I.121 Broadband Aspects of ISDN
• In 1911, the ATM Forum was created with the goal of accelerating the development of ATM standards.
• Connection-oriented packet-switched network
• Used in both WAN and LAN settings
• Signaling (connection setup) Protocol:
– Q.2931
• Packets are called cells (53 bytes)
– 5-byte header + 48-byte payload
• Commonly transmitted over SONET
– other physical layers possible
• Connections can be switched (SVC), or permanent (PVC).
Variable vs. Fixed-Length Packets
• No Optimal Length
– if small: high header-to-data overhead
– if large: low utilization for small messages
• Fixed-Length Easier to Switch in Hardware
– simpler
– enables parallelism
Big vs. Small Packets
• Small Improves Queue behavior
– finer-grained pre-emption point for scheduling link
• maximum packet = 4KB
• link speed = 100Mbps
• transmission time = 4096 x 8/100 = 327.68us
• high priority packet may sit in the queue 327.68us
• in contrast, 53 x 8/100 = 4.24us for ATM
– near cut-through behavior
• two 4KB packets arrive at same time
• link idle for 327.68us while both arrive
• at end of 327.68us, still have 8KB to transmit
• in contrast, can transmit first cell after 4.24us
• at end of 327.68us, just over 4KB left in queue
• Small Improves Latency (for voice)
– voice digitally encoded at 64KBps (8-bit samples at 8KHz)
– need full cell’s worth of samples before sending cell
– example: 1000-byte cells implies 125ms per cell (too long)
– smaller latency implies no need for echo cancellors
• ATM Compromise: 48 bytes = (32+64)/2
• ATM operates on a best effort basis.
• ATM guarantees that cells will not be disordered.
• Two types of connections:
– Point-to-point
– Multipoint (Multicast)
• Four Types of Services:
– CBR (Constant Bit Rate)
– VBR (Variable Bit Rate)
– ABR (Available Bit Rate) Flow Control, Rate-based, Credit- based
– UBR (Unspecific Bit Rate) No Flow control.
• Aggregate Bandwidth vs. Shared Medium (FDDI, Fast Ethernet).
ATM Characteristics
• No error protection or flow control on a link-by-link basis.
• ATM operates in a connection-oriented mode.
• The header functionality is reduced.
The information field length is relatively small and fixed
ATM Layer Service
• Transparent transfer of 48-octet data unit
• Deliver data in sequence on a connection
• Two levels of multiplexing
• Three types of connections
– Point-to-point
– Point-to-Multipoint
– Multipoint-to-Multipoint
• Transport is best-effort
• Network QoS negotiation
• Traffic control and congestion control

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)



.ppt   ch 1 Introduction.ppt (Size: 107.5 KB / Downloads: 23)

Introduction

ATM-Asynchronous Transfer Mode
A transfer mode in which the information is organized into cells.
It is asynchronous in the sense that the recurrence of cells containing information from a particular user is not necessarily periodic .

Asynchronous transfer mode (= Statistical multiplexing)


Basics


Voice, data and video are currently transported by different networks.
Voice is transported by the public telephone network .
Data by a variety of packet-switched networks
Video is transported by networks based on coaxial cables, satellites, and radio waves, and to a limited extent, by packet-switched networks


History


Distributed systems became more common place, so did the desire to move files over the network at a higher rate.
Also, there was a growing demand for other
applications such as video conferencing, multi-media, medical imaging, remote processing and remote printing of a newspaper.
At the same time, optical fiber technology evolved very rapidly and by the end of the 80s there was a lot of optical fiber installed. Optical fiber permitted high bandwidth and very low bit-error rate.


Application


ATM is a mature networking technology and it is still the only networking technology that provides quality of service.
ATM networks are used in a variety of environments. For instance, it is widely used in the backbone of Internet service providers (ISP) and in campus networks to carry Internet traffic.


ATM Cells


Why 53 Bytes?
A 48 byte payload was the result of a compromise between a 32 byte payload and a 64 byte payload
Advantages
– Low packetization delay for continuous bit rate applications (video, audio)
– Processing at switches is easier
Disadvantages
– High overhead (5 Bytes per 48)
– Poor utilization at lower line rates links


ATM Characteristics


No error protection or flow control on a link-by-link basis.
The header functionality is reduced.
The information field length is relatively small and fixed.

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)


.doc   atm.doc (Size: 230 KB / Downloads: 23)

Introduction

ATM does not stand for automatic teller machine. In the telecommunication, it stands for Asynchronous Transfer Mode, in which data sends asynchronously. This mode is another fast packet switching mode.
ATM is regarded as the technology of the 21st century and its impact is expected to be similar to PCM (pulse code modulation) which is used widely around the world in telecommunication.
Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) is a technology that has his its history in the development of broadband ISDN in the 1970s and 980s. Technically, it can be viewed as an evolution of pocket switching. Like packet switching for data , ATM integrates the multiplexing and switching functions, is well suited for burst traffic and allows communications between devices that operate at different speeds . Unlike packet switching, ATM is designed for high-performance multimedia networking.




What is ATM ?

Asynchronous transfer mode is a high speed; packet based multiplexing technique in which information flow is organized in short fixed length cells.

The cells are generated when there is new data to send, which allows an element of data compression (e.g there is no need to send the pauses that occurs in speech). It also means that cells with different bandwidth in each direction are possible- a fax connection, for example uses little bandwidth in return direction. This allows more efficient use of the network resourses.

ATM provides a way of multiplexing many sources of data onto a common cells stream. Regardless of speed of the inputs. This greatly improves flexibility, enabling provision of bandwidth on demand.


Asynchronous Transfer Mode Switching

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) an International Telecommunication Union-Telecommunications Standards Section (ITU-T) standard for cell relay wherein information for multiple service types, such as voice, video, or data, is conveyed in small, fixed-size cells. ATM networks are connection-oriented. This chapter provides summaries of ATM protocols, services, and operation. Figure illustrates a private ATM network and a public ATM network carrying voice, video, and data traffic.



ATM Devices and the Network Environment

ATM is a cell-switching and multiplexing technology that combines the benefits of circuit switching (guaranteed capacity and constant transmission delay) with those of packet switching (flexibility and efficiency for intermittent traffic). It provides scalable bandwidth from a few megabits per second (Mbps) to many gigabits per second (Gbps). Because of its asynchronous nature, ATM is more efficient than synchronous technologies, such as time-division multiplexing (TDM).
With TDM, each user is assigned to a time slot, and no other station send in that time slot. If a station has much data to send, it can send only when its time slot comes up, even if all other time slots are empty. However, if a station has nothing to transmit when its time slot comes up, the time slot is sent empty and is wasted. Because ATM is asynchronous, time slots are available on demand with information identifying the source of the transmission contained in the header of each ATM cell.

ATM Cell Basic Format

ATM transfers information in fixed-size units called cells. Each cell consists of 53 octets, or bytes. The first 5 bytes contain cell-header information, and the remaining 48 contain the payload (user information). Small, fixed-length cells are well suited to transferring voice and video traffic because such traffic is intolerant of delays that result from having to wait for a large data packet to download, among other things. Figure illustrates the basic format of an ATM cell.
