DARPA Workshop on Wide-Area ATM Performance

Telecommunications and Information Sciences Laboratory
Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Nichols Hall
University of Kansas

June 19-20, 1996


Over the past several years, groups within the networking community have gained experience with ATM WAN performance. The purposes of this day-and-a-half by-invitation workshop are to exchange ideas on ATM WAN measurement tools and techniques, to discuss ATM WAN experiments to establish today's performance limits, to identify the factors that affect performance, and to identify first-order opportunities for improving network performance. The focus will be on solid engineering techniques for measurements, concise analysis of measurements that have been taken, improvements made, and proposals for what should be done in the near future to further enhance performance.
