Faster's past highlights with ATM

Past work with ATM networks includes implementations of various protocols for the Linux operating system.


ATM LAN Emulation (LANE) was implemented in 1996 by MSc Marko Kiiskilš as a part of his MSc thesis. The implementation includes both the LANE server and client and is currently distributed as a part of the ATM on Linux distribution. Marko's MSc thesis describes the implementation and is available both in PDF and A4-sized gzip compressed PostScript formats.


Multi-Protocol Over ATM (MPOA) was implemented during 1998 and 1999 by Sampo Saaristo and Heikki Vatiainen. The MPOA implementation includes only the client part and is also distributed in the ATM on Linux distribution. The MPOA client implementation and performance and interoperability test results are described in Heikki's MSc thesis which is also available for both downloading and online viewing. For a short introduction to MPOA and our experiences from testing various clients, please see a paper describing the performance. The paper compares the performance of MPOA when compared to router based packet forwarding.
