Protocol Architecture Similarities between ATM and packet switching Transfer of data in discrete chunks Multiple logical connections over single physical  interface In ATM flow on each logical connection is in  fixed sized packets called cells Minimal error and flow control Reduced overhead Data rates (physical layer) 25.6Mbps to  622.08Mbps

Simplified Network Architecture transport functions can be separated into those  related to  individual logical connections or  groups of connections

increased network performance and reliability Network deal with fewer entities Connection time reduction new virtual channels can be set up by executing  simple control functions without processing by  intermediate nodes
