ATM - Asynchronous Transfer Mode
Asynchronous Transfer Mode is a high-speed networking standard designed to support both voice and data communications. It uses fixed-sized cells of 53 bytes in length, that includes 48 bytes of data and 5 bytes of header. Unlike TCP/IP, in which, packet takes different route from source to destination, ATM creates a fixed channel, or route, between two points.
