Isochronous Ethernet—An ATM Bridge for Multimedia Networking
January-March 1997 (vol. 4 no. 1)
pp. 58-67

There are various technical challenges associated with the transmission of integrated audio, video, and data for multimedia applications offering guaranteed Quality of Service. The transmission of the integrated multimedia data will span the local and wide areas domains, both public and private. Isochronous services along with Ethernet in the form of IEEE 802.9a ISLAN16-T (isoEthernetTM) will provide the integrated data transport needs in the local area. Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) has the provisioning which will meet the high speed large bandwidth wide area transmission need. Thus, a bridge between ISLAN16-T and ATM networks whereby all the multimedia networking technical requirements are addressed will allow multimedia applications to run between users residing across local area and wide area connections. This paper will discuss a bridging method for allowing the transmission of integrated audio, video, and data for multimedia applications spanning ISLAN16-T in the local area network and ATM in the wide area network.
