Benefits of ATM

ATM provides a flexible and scalable solution to the increasing need for quality of service in networks where multiple information types (such as data, voice, and real-time video and audio) are supported. With ATM, each of these information types can pass through a single network connection.

ATM can provide the following benefits:

  • High-speed communication

  • Connection-oriented service, similar to traditional telephony

  • Fast, hardware-based switching

  • A single, universal, interoperable network transport

  • A single network connection that can reliably mix voice, video, and data

  • Flexible and efficient allocation of network bandwidth
