However, the use and exact values of the GFC field have not been standardized, and the field is always set to If 0, user data cell and the following apply: Used by AAL5 to indicate packet boundaries. If the most significant bit MSB of the PT field is 0, this is a user data cell, and the other two bits are used to indicate network congestion and as a general purpose header bit available for ATM adaptation layers.
Archive[ edit ] I have archived the pre discussion to Talk: Not to be confused with Automated Teller Machine. Since ATM no longer redirects here, is this hatnote still useful, or is it a distraction?
W Nowicki talk Next issue, many things are defined in standards, whether they were commercialized and ever used is a different story, so what are the most common ways to the move an ATM stream other than a DSL modem and multiplexing into SONET?
Two, talk pages are for discussing ways to improve the article, not a general forum for conversation about the topic. As you can see at the ITU link, asynchronous transfer mode is also used on p.
Carefully edited reference works and publications such as Britannica also use lowercase when explaining acronyms like ATM. Some organizations including Wikipedia do not capitalise common nouns in titles, but they never lowercase proper nouns in titles or in text.
Please do not revert again while the issue is being discussed here. Page i, 1 and 11 the body of the text has it capiltalized everywhere. It is a proper noun and it why it was moved on 24 December from Asynchronous transfer mode to Asynchronous Transfer Mode.
The same is true of Integrated Services Digital Network, Broadband Integrated Services Digital Network, and Public Switched Telephone Network and many other topic areas in the field of communications, a handful of which from your recent edits you appear to wish to somehow make common nouns.
For example, your move of Broadband Integrated Services Digital Network, to Broadband integrated services digital network is quite inappropriate: You might find it useful to think whether ATM or any of these are properly preceded by any or some.
Where it is obvious that we can say any telephone network, or some transport protocol, naturally. Common nouns refer to a class.
ATM is not a class. As a counter-example, consider cyclic redundancy code. CRC is not a proper noun. It is a class of algorithms. CRCc is a proper noun. Stream Control Transmission Protocol is a proper noun. You will see that in the articles and in I.
Asynchronous time-division switching is a common noun referring to the class of protocols of which ATM is a standardized, specific and particular instance.
You appear upset that I reverted your changes. Once ever so often an editor goes stomping though these pages changing all of the proper nouns to lower case, causing an effort to change them all back.
To avoid bother, it is common to simply revert these without much comment. Please consider all such changes as controversial and discuss your intended changes before making them to avoid causing unnecessary work for the regular contributors to these articles.
Please also consider reducing that work load by reverting your own recent changes to these articles. Bad because it makes people believe these nouns are proper nouns. Many if not most ITU webpages use lowercase. The very fact that carefully edited publications like Britannica use lowercase proves that ATM is a common noun.
Believe me, professional editors of encyclopedias know a lot more about grammar and spelling than engineers, and professional editors of reference works have extensive databases of citations at their disposal, on which they base their decisions. Any attempts to use tests like "any" or "some" to decide whether something is a common noun amount to OR and are hopelessly amateurish.
This has to be interpreted as an attack on the editors that revert your versions. If these use both uppercase and lowercase, MOS clearly states we should use lowercase, especially when general reference works like Britannica also use lowercase not to mention most ITU and IEC webpages.
Your aggressive removal of information is an attack, not my pointing out that we are not even supposed to try to be professional editors and definitely not try to be above them.
I am a professional editor BTW, but that is not why we should follow what I feel is clearly correct.Asynchronous Transfer Mode “Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) is a new method of switching and transporting data across LANs and wide area networks (WANs).
ATM is capable of moving voice, data, graphics and video images at speeds of up to 2 gigabits per second.” (InfoWorld) ATM is designed to provide fast packet switching over various . Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) is a switching technique used by telecommunication networks that uses asynchronous time-division multiplexing to encode data into small, fixed-sized cells.
This is different from Ethernet or internet, which use variable packet sizes for data or frames.
The contents of the Virtual channel identifier page were merged into Asynchronous transfer mode. For the contribution history and old versions of the redirected page, please see ; for the discussion at that location, see its talk page.
() See, Talk:Asynchronous_Transfer_Mode#lowercase_correct, above, for previous full discussion. Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) The physical infrastructure supporting data communications has improved its ability to transmit data quickly with advances such as optical fibers.
As this physical capacity increases, there is a need to utilize effectively the bandwidth to carry a variety of traffic (voice, video, data) in an efficient manner..
. Asynchronous transfer mode was designed with cells in mind. This is because voice data is converted to packets and is forced to share a network with burst data (large packet data) passing through the .
