synchronous transfer A mode (ATM) offers much greater capacity than existing shared-medium local area networks (LANs). It is a flexible transport technology that can integrate all types of media such as voice, video, and data. Many of the key features of ATM have been standardized by the ATM Forum for the purpose of local area desktop computing. Various LAN vendors are actively developing and implementing ATM moducts in the market. MEMORY SPEED REQUIREMENT Since memory access time is
