This paper presents an approach for carrying Internet transport PDUs directly over AAL5, discarding IP. The main advantage is an overhead reduction that can significantly impact upstream Internet traffic performance in asymmetric access network technologies such as HFC and ADSL. The TONA model proposed in the paper considers ATM to be at network layer-3, and tries to combine the best solutions given by previous models. Removal of the IP layer and the use of TCP over native ATM were achieved in a way that maximizes comparability with current standards and existent Internet applications, and allows the use of TCP by ATM applications.
