Paper Abstract

This paper discusses and compares specific aspects of models such as Classical IP, MARS, NHRP, LANE and MPOA. We will refer to these models as being the conventional models in the following text. They mainly allow to emulate an IP or MAC service over ATM, and are characterized by the fact that they are defined in a non-intrusive way with ATM. Other model types are possible, such as MPLS, which is intrusive with ATM. In this paper, we are focusing on models which consider the underlying layer as a Non Broadcast Multiple Access (NBMA) black box, providing a connection oriented service. We propose a complete re-engineering of conventional models, into a single, unique generic mode, called MPON or MultiProtocol Over NBMA.
