Abstract
Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) network is one the most promising networks which are scalable in turn of bandwidth and distance. Moreover, bandwidth reservation and quality of service guarantees make ATM attractive to deliver multimedia information in real-time. Existing protocol suites fail to give access to those characteristics. therefore, applications demand an ATM application programming interface (API) forum has produced a semantics document which is independent of system platforms. This paper covers a special syntax mapping of the ATM API services on top of X/open transport interface (XTI) which is able to give applications access directly to the special quality and traffic services of an ATM network. A particular realization of the API on XTI environment is proposed and implemented on the MacOS networking platform. It provides a flexible and modular design of the ATM networking.
