Paper Abstract

Metropolitan area networks are intended to serve organizational sites scattered around a metropolitan area, interconnecting local area networks, large computers, and PBX's. Standards work under IEEE Project 802 is now nearly complete for the basic standard, which will be used in the Bell operating companies' SMDS service offering. Recent coordination with other standards bodies have provided a level of compatibility that will enable "seamless" integration with Broadband ISDN.
