1997 IEEE Communications Magazine  
There is increasing interest in deploying ATM technology in local or campus networks. ATM is an ideal technology to overcome many of the limitations of today's LAN technologies. This article focuses on the application of ATM in the LAN environment t o interconnect high-end host computers and on the interworking of ATM-based LANs with legacy LANs. In this article, the authors introduce ATM LAN requirements, followed by a discussion of possible ATM LAN architectures to support these requirements.
