4.1 What is ATM protocol architecture?

The asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) protocol architecture is designed to support the transfer of data with a range of guarantees for quality of service. The user data is divided into small, fixed-length packets, called cells, and transported over virtual connections. ATM operates over high data rate physical circuits, and the simple structure of ATM cells allows switching to be performed in hardware, which improves the speed and efficiency of ATM switches.
