Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)

Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) is a telecommunication network standard that supports voice, video, and data transfer between networks. ATM uses hardware switches instead of software to establish a connection that flows data from source to destination. ATM has lost traction as Next-Generation Networks, which support wireless and mobile transfers, gain popularity.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)

ATM is beneficial for businesses because both voice and data services can be hosted on the same network with high speeds and low latency.
