Is there an Ideal Protocol over ATM?

Xpress Transport Protocol Experiments

More Info


In part one of this report we focus on the question of what protocol layer is necessary between ATM and the application. Several ATM adaptation layers and transport protocols are compared. In part two, experiments have been done with XTP, a general promising protocol able to offer several services towards the application and able to run on top of IP or directly on the ATM Adaptation Layer.
