For an introductory text, Ibe's book seems to be the best. I've looked over many others (most of which cost more), and this book is the best introduction. It gives good detail, which many books lack. Of course, at some point this book runs out as well, and you have to go to the various specs and dig, but Ibe's overview (with sufficient detail) is excellent.
An excellent book for those who are interested in the new wave of data technology. I highly recommend it to EE's, business development managers and IT managers. It is very easy to read and has become a part of my easy access library.D. Akiu Jr.,Global Business Development Manager, AT&T
This is a must-have for anyone that is working with ATM networking. It is inexpensive but gives clear and detailed explanations. A great reference guide. Makes sense of Management and control planes, OAM cells, and addressing - areas that bigger (murkier) books can't seem to explain.Note that it does not replace the need to seek out ATM formum or IEEE spec. The version I have (first printing August 1997) doesn't cover Type 2 (VBR).
I read this book and I liked it soo much .. it's explaining all the aspects of ATM in such a simple way that makes everybody understand ! I tried to read the book another time but I couldn't .. because the book started moving from one hand to another and all my ATM intrested friends like it so much
This book is for those diving in head-first to ATM. If you are looking for a general overview- go somewhere else. If you want the nuts and bolts- you've found the right guide. Needs to be updated, but still a great sourcebook.
I will just agree with a lot of the positive reviews. This is a great introduction to ATM. Quick to read, easy to understand. The only negative to it is that its dated to some degree. I needed more information on the emerging AAL2 developments and what AAL2 specifics where. This book was written before AAL2 was defined. I'm not disappointed though, with the info I gained I have been able to quickly wade through the on line info to get AAL2 info.
