Paper Abstract

The first part of the paper, after an overview of frame relay, SMDS/CBDS, and ATM experiments in U.S.A., Europe, and Japan, describes the high-speed network field trial carried out in Torino, Italy focusing on performance measurement aspects, application benchmarking, and users' feed-back. Then, the paper deals with the initiative concerning the deployment of a pilot ATM virtual path infrastructure across Europe in 1994, which aims at interconnecting the national ATM pilot network. Furthermore, the results of a feasibility study concerning the implementation of a Pilot ATM Network are pointed out. At the end, the focus is on evaluation and testing problems and on the advantages of the ATM solution versus user requirements.
