SMDS is a connectionless, high performance, public, packet switched data service which may be initially made available in the early 1990's by the Bell Operating Companies. SMDS will be able to interconnect computers, and Local Area Networks (LANs), including very high speed LANs such as FDDI networks, over wide geographical areas. This paper provides an introduction to SMDS, its features and some of its technical details.
