Desktop Interface to Asynchronous Transfer Mode NetworksSameer Khanzode (supervisor: Dr. David E. Dodds)
MSc Thesis, University of Saskatchewan, Department of Electrical Engineering, April 1996
Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) is a new communication technology proposed for the implementation of Broadband ISDN, a network which integrates various services such as voice, video and data. To access an ATM network, the voice, video and data signals must be converted to ATM cells. These cells are then multiplexed and transmitted over the transmission facility. This thesis presents the design of an ATM network access system which supports one telephone voice service and one PC data service. Three designs are described in the thesis: the first is an ATM adapter, the second is a cell multiplexer circuit and the third is for serial transmission of ATM cells at a rate of 1.544 Mb/s over twisted pair cable. These three designs have been implemented and tested in the laboratory using the DA1 port of a Northern Telecom ATM switch.
