The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Internetworking Over ATM : An Introduction':
Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
The preface states that readers of this book should already be
familiar with ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Model). Quite true. This
work is by no means an introduction; it is a highly technical
reference for those wanting to use multiple protocols over ATM, or
wanting to use ATM in a multi-protocol environment. There is a heavy
emphasis on the use of ATM with TCP/IP.
Chapters one, two, and three deal with concepts and benefits of ATM,
itself, LAN emulation, and multi-protocol over ATM. Other topics
covered include APPN (Advanced Peer-to-Peer Network) support, Internet
Protocol, PNNI (Private Network-to-Network Interface), switched
virtual networking, and the future of the Internet Protocol and IPv6.
Occasional IBM works in the past have concentrated heavily on IBM
products. That is not the case here, as it provides a solid, and
generic, technical base.
