ATM Layer


The protocol on the Edge Switch (ES) will remove ATM cells from the AHDLC frames and switch them to the proper port. It will also pack ATM cells into an Adaptive HDLC frame to send to the radio. The ATM Device Driver API and Adaptive Driver are detailed in [10]. Note that standard ATM call setup signaling is used and no AAL is precluded from use.
