Abstract
Not Available Multimedia applications will be a major part of the rework traffic in the next generation of high speed networks. The cornerstone for multimedia is Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATE, foreseen as the technology of the future Broadband Integrated Services Digital Network (13-ISDN). Real-time multimedia, unlike traditional data transfer applications, have stringent simultaneous requirements in terms of loss and delay jitter. Traditional protocol layers do not have appropriate mechanisms to provide the required network quality of service for such VBR multimedia applications. This lack of functionality calls for the design of protocol layers to handle the stringent requirements of multimedia applications. Also, one of the major drawbacks of ATM technology today is its inability to support security. ATM will likely be used in the future for mission-critical information transfer, like financial transactions and military communications. Carrying such sensitive information will make ATM networks very lucrative to break into. To exploit its full potential, there is an urgent need to incorporate security features into ATM protocol layers. In this proposal, we analyze the requirements for transporting real-time multimedia traffic over ATM. ATM protocol layer functionality is designed based on these requirements. Also, threats to ATM are identified and different options to counter them are presented. BENEFITS: ATM is the leading networking technology of the future. Compressed voice
