Introducing ATM
Networking
As a technology, ATM represents a sharp departure from LAN
alternatives such as traditional Ethernets that typically rely on
shared transmission media. That is, with Ethernet, several nodes
often contend for the right to transmit over shared cable segments
that support only one transmission at a time. When a node
successfully captures the media, it transmits its message at the
maximum allowed speed, completely consuming the media.
However, even in the best of circumstances, it is not unusual for two
or more nodes to begin transmitting at the same time and interfere
with each others transmission. Ethernet’s design anticipates and
compensates for unpredictable transmission collisions that occur.
How ATM Works
In contrast to other methods, ATM isolates network nodes by forcing
them to attach to ATM switches using dedicated connections. ATM
switches then interconnect and cooperate with each other to form a
network and provide communication connections. While an ATM
node has full use of its switch attachment link, nodes share the
capacity of the links connecting the switches. Unlike Ethernet
networks, this sharing is largely invisible to the nodes. Because of
this and other considerations, ATM provides numerous advantages
and capabilities that are difficult or impossible to obtain with legacy
LAN approaches. Perhaps the most important ATM benefits are its

Wide Area Connectivity
International telephone companies have standardized ATM to
support their domestic telephone voice traffic. As nations deploy
their individual ATM networks, ATM’s standard definition makes it
easy to interconnect these various ATM networks into a cooperative
integrated global network.

Introducing ATM Networking
Scaleable bandwidth
ATM defines how ATM end-stations, such as your PC or
workstation, connect to ATM switches and how ATM switches
interconnect with each other. Because these various connections
consist of dedicated links, their construction (metal wire or fiber
optic) and the transmission speed they support may vary from link
to link. When connections require higher speed, it is usually easy to
upgrade the connection without disrupting other network nodes
and switches, upgrading transmission bandwidth only where
necessary.
Bandwidth guarantees
Whenever one ATM node communicates with another, it uses a
virtual connection that disguises the fact that connections actually
traverse shared media. In this way, ATM networks make it appear
that connections are dedicated. Only if the necessary bandwidth is
available along the entire route does the connection setup complete
successfully. ATM’s guaranteed bandwidth allows connections to
transport audio, video, and image data that is sensitive to time
delays that occur when bandwidth is unpredictable as it is with
Ethernet.

ANA-5910/5930/5940 User’s Guide
To communicate with another node, an initiating node must initiate
a signaling request to the signaling Virtual Channel Connection (VCC)
residing within the local switch.
Virtual Channel Connections (VCCs)
Virtual Channel Connections (VCCs) are either constructed manually
or constructed by both nodes and all intervening switches.
Manually constructed connections are called Permanent Virtual
Circuits (PVCs) and must be manually deconstructed. With Switched
Virtual Connections (SVCs), one node initiates the VCC setup process
which proceeds switch-by-switch until the desired node is reached.
ATM networks that provide SVCs are considered signaling
environments. Finally VCCs can be point-to-point, allowing one
transmitter and receiver for any cell, or multicast VCCs that allow
one node to transmit a cell that many nodes receive.
An initiating node sends a connection setup request to its switch via
a special signaling VCC. The signaling VCC is an example of a
control VCC - a VCC that remains constantly active. The switch then
cooperates with other nodes to construct a virtual connection that
provides the appropriate Quality of Service (QoS). Link by link, the
procedure reserves the bandwidth required by the connection. If the
connection setup is successful, the nodes communicate using the
VCC which is represented by a Virtual Channel Identifier (VCI) and a
Virtual Path Identifier (VPI). Together, the VCI and VPI identify the
VCC for its duration, and communicating nodes reference the VPI/
VCI pair within each transmitted cell, permitting subsequent cell
switching activity. When the communication process is complete,
one of the communicating nodes initiates the SVC tear-down.
ATM SONET/SDH Support
SONET is an acronym for Synchronous Optical Network - the
contemporary technology many North American telephone
companies use to bundle and transport domestic voice data within
Synchronous Transport Signal (STS) data frames SDH is an acronym
for Synchronous Digital Hierarchy - the contemporary technology
many European telephone companies use to bundle and transport
domestic voice data Synchronous Transport Module (STM) data
frames. Through international standardization efforts, SONET and
SDH are essentially identical except that the smallest STM frame
(STM-1) is three times larger than the smallest STS frame (STS-1).

Introducing ATM Networking
ATM uses SONET and SHD technology to reduce costs while
achieving high transmission rates. Essentially, ATM combines
multiple STS-1 frames into STS superframes (STS-Nc, where N
stands for some integer value) and likewise for STM-1 frames.
Transmitting 8,000 single STS-1 frames at telephone company in a
second, referred to as STS-1 transmission, produces a 51.84 Mbit/sec
transmission rate.
An STS-3C transmission transmits 8,000 STS-3c superframes in a
second, each composed of three concatenated (combined) STS-1
frames. This produces a 155.52 Mbit/sec transmission rate which is
conventionally rounded to 155 Mbits/sec. The STS-3c transmission
rate is identical to the STM-1 transmission rate. ATM supports, or
will eventually support the following:
■
STS-1:
51.84 Mbits/sec
■
STS-3c:
155.52 Mbits/sec
■
STS-12c:
622.08 Mbits/sec
■
STS-24c:
1244.16 Mbits/sec
■
STS-48c:
2488.32 Mbits/sec
■
STS-192c:
9953.28 Mbits/sec
Adaptec ATM products currently support the STS-3C/STM-1
transmission rate of 155.51 Mbits/sec.
25.6 Mbit/sec ATM
ATM also supports 25.6 Mbit transmission speeds. Adaptec
products providing this transmission speed attach to switches which
can subsequently transport the data at any ATM transmission speed
necessary to reach another switch or node.
Classical TCP/IP
A data communication protocol is a set of conventions that
communicating entities observe to achieve unambiguous data
exchange and the TCP/IP suite of protocols is the most commonly
used data communication protocol suite. TCP/IP has prevailed
because it is an extensible, effective data communication protocol
suite designed from the ground up to integrate disparate networks
with heterogeneous computers. Because of its interconnectivity
origins, TCP/IP is essential to the Internet, which itself consists of

Classical IP Operational Summary
Within workstations, a TCP/IP communication protocol stack
receives application data streams and fragments the flows into
datagrams. These datagrams can be up to 64 Kbytes long, though
they are usually much smaller to accommodate physical media
constraints. Within the stack, IP components prepend datagram
headers and deliver the datagram to MAC components, such as
Ethernet components, for transmission. Intermediate routers route
the IP datagrams to destinations, further fragmenting the datagrams
into smaller datagrams if necessary. When datagrams arrive,
perhaps out of order, receiving host IP components reassemble the
datagrams and corresponding TCP components reconstruct the
original data stream before delivering the data to an application. IP
provides a connectionless, datagram transmission and routing
conduit while TCP superimposes necessary guaranteed data
delivery considerations between applications using mechanisms
such as exponential back off and slow start up transmission rate
flow controls as well as message receipt acknowledgments.
Within popular implementations, IP receives and delivers data from
and to two widely available higher level layers, TCP and UDP. UDP

Introducing ATM Networking
stands for User Datagram Protocol. Both TCP and UDP have
associated processes and applications that produce the messages
and streams TCP and UDP receive and deliver. While TCP provides
a reliable data transport mechanism to host applications including
checksums, UDP provides applications-specific IP addresses but
only provides its applications access only to IP’s connectionless,
unreliable delivery.
Classical IP over ATM
Within contemporary networks, host IP software and IP routers get
datagrams from network sources to network destinations. Within an
ATM network, the ATM adaptation layer intercepts and converts IP
datagrams to and from cells. This spans the message transmission
differences inherent within each communication design. However,
it does not address the behavorial differences between components
above this layer. For instance, unlike ATM, the legacy delivery
process does not itself guarantee reliable, in-order delivery.
Because TCP/IP applications were designed in LAN environments
that naturally provided broadcast services that are unavailable with
native ATM, other differences also require consideration before ATM

IP addresses to ATM network addresses and provide TCP/IP’s

LAN Emulation
Clearly, ATM’s connection-oriented approach for communication is
distinctly different from the broadcast-oriented approach traditional
LANs use. ATM LAN Emulation, an industry-standard facility all
Adaptec ATM adapters support, provides necessary mechanisms to
address this requirement.
LAN emulation allows ATM networks to provide all services
available within legacy LAN environments. With LAN emulation,
ATM networks use their facilities to mimic communication
establishment procedures occurring within broadcast-oriented
legacy LANs. Once communication is established, ATM uses
normal ATM connections to exchange messages, usually many times
faster than with legacy LANs. Emulated LANs may consist entirely
of ATM end stations, include transparent bridges that connect exiting
LANs to ATM networks, or both.
ATM LAN Emulation facilities consist of
■
LAN Emulation Clients (LECs)
■
LAN Emulation Configuration Server (LECS)
■
LAN Emulation Server (LES)
■
Broadcast and Unknown Server (BUS)
The following sections describe these components.
LAN Emulation Clients (LECs)
A LEC is an internal control VCC within end stations. LECs
communicate with other LAN emulation components and LECs to
establish and provide LAN Emulation services. A LEC wholly
comprises the interface between legacy applications and ATM
networks. Therefore it must support various interfaces such as
NDIS and ODI.
When communicating with another LEC, Data Direct VCCs transport
the data. For outbound data frames, LECs convert the LAN MAC
addresses that legacy LAN applications use into ATM network
addresses and pass the typically large application data frames to the
correct ATM layer (AAL5) for conversion into cells for transmission.
For inbound cells, LECs reverse the process.

Introducing ATM Networking
LAN Emulation Configuration Server (LECS)
A LECS usually resides within an ATM switch. When queried by a
LEC over a Control Direct VCC, a LECS indicates what LAN(s) a LEC
can participate in based on input from a network administrator.
LECs use the LECS to obtain the network address of the LES. A
temporary VCC, that transports this information, is the Configuration
Direct VCC.
LAN Emulation Server (LES)
The LES maintains a table of all ATM nodes participating within a
LAN and can return appropriate values to querying nodes. The LES
usually resides within a node’s local switch and helps determine
node addresses.
To determine appropriate ATM addresses, a LEC maintains a table
of recently determined conversion values. When a value is not
within the table, a LEC contacts the LES using the LAN Emulation
Address Resolution Protocol (LEARP).
If a target node is an ATM end-station, the LES returns its address
and the process is complete. Otherwise the node is connected to a
legacy LAN which attaches to the ATM network using a transparent
bridge. If the LES does not have the appropriate MAC conversion
information to resolve addresses, the LES transmits associated
LEARP messages to the LES in any known transparent bridge using
Control Distribute VCCs. If a transparent bridge LEC recognizes the
specified MAC address, it provides the address to the original
requesting LEC and provides necessary message-passing facilities.
Broadcast and Unknown Server (BUS)
Occasionally, applications send LECs messages intended to be
broadcast to all LAN members. In this instance, the LEC passes the
message to the BUS using a multicast VCC. The BUS then transmits
the message to each participating LAN node using a multicast using
ATM multicast facilities. Receiving LECs filter these messages using
the node address and pass surviving messages to intended
recipients.

aatmcnfg.exe
The aatmcnfg.exe utility is used for configuring the atmo.sys driver.
The following is the syntax for using this utility:
aatmcnfg [-f ConfigFile] -[x n] -[s | d | p | q | a]
Options:
-s
shutdown
-d
debug
-p
print status
-q
no signalling
-a
no address registration
-x n
delete PVC channel n
Use the -q option only if you do not want to use SVCs and if you do
not want to register with a switch, as in back-to-back connections or
when running diagnostics. Use the -a option if your switch does not
support address registration. Use the -f ConfigFile option to start the
atmo.sys driver with a database file other than the default base.db,
for example, trial.db.
Note: When you run the utility aatmcnfg without options,
the driver registers with the switch. If the driver fails to
register with the switch, enter aatmcnfg -s to stop the driver
then try starting it again.

The ATM ARP server address consists of the following:
■
The first 13 bytes are from the ATM switch. (Refer to the
switch documentation.)
■
The next 6 bytes are the MAC address (ESI address) of the
adapter installed in the ATM ARP server.
The MAC address also appears when you use the

Installing ATM Version 2.0x Drivers for Windows NT
Determining the CIP ARP Server Address
Note: Commands such as aatmcnfg should be entered from
the MS-DOS command prompt, which you can access by
selecting the MS-DOS Command Prompt icon in Program
Manager’s Main group window.
To obtain the 20-byte, ATM ARP server address
Note: The ATM driver should be started and registered to
the switch.
1
On the ARP server, enter the following command from the
directory (\etc\opt\adptaatm\bin) where the ATM CIP software
was installed:
aatmcnfg -p
The ATM address for the ARP server appears, for example,
39.11.22.11.22.11.22.00.00.11.22.11.22.00.00.d1.00.04.45.00
2
Write this address down. Then replace the 20th byte (the final
byte, which is 00) with 03. Use this altered address as the ATM
ARP server address when you install the CIP client software
on all client workstations in the LIS.
The ATM ARP server address consists of the following:
■
The first 13 bytes are from the ATM switch. (Refer to the
switch documentation.)
■
The next 6 bytes are the MAC address (ESI address) of the
adapter installed in the ATM ARP server.
The MAC address also appears when you use the
aatmcnfg -p command.
■
The 20th byte (the ATM ARP selector) must be different than
the CIP client selector and the ATM selector. Adaptec ATM
drivers use the following default selectors:
– ARP selector (aarp.sys): 03
– CIP client selector (acip): 02
– ATM selector (aatm): 00

Features
ANA-5910/5930/5940 Hardware
The ANA-5910/5930/5940 adapter is an ATM network interface
card (NIC) designed to be easily installed in the PCI slots. The
adapter is specifically designed to enhance your computer’s
performance by providing easy access to ATM networks. The
adapter models use the following cables and connectors:

The adapter delivers high performance in terms of low latency, high
throughput, and fast response time. The adapter supports
simultaneous inbound and outbound transfers at their maximum
line speed of either 25 Mbits/sec for the ANA-5910 or 155 Mbits/sec
for the ANA-5930/5940.
One of the adapter’s most important functions is to perform the
segmentation and reassembly of data for communication with the
ATM network. The adapter segments outgoing PDUs into ATM cells
and transmits them to an ATM switch for forwarding to their
destination. The adapter uses AAL 5 protocol to map PDUs into the
information field of the ATM cell. The adapter also reassembles
incoming cells into a larger frame and uses a buffer management
scheme for the efficient transfer of PDUs between the adapter and
the host computer.
At the physical layer, the ANA-5930/5940 supports the SONET/
SDH and STS-3c/STM-1 155-Mbit/sec physical transport standards.
The ANA-5910 conforms to the ATM Forum’s 25.6-Mbit/sec
standard transmission method.

Product Features and Specifications
ANA-5910/5930/5940 Software
The adapter is shipped with the following software:
■
An ATM driver (atmo.sys) provides driver layer access to
higher layer ATM drivers and resides in the host computer
where the adapter is installed. This driver allows Classical IP
operation over ATM using RFC 1577.
■
An ATM Address Resolution Protocol (ATMARP) server
driver (aarp.sys) allows Classical IP management and creation
of SVCs from an ATMARP server. This driver software is an
additional package; only one is needed per logical IP subnet
(LIS).
■
Command-line utilities allow driver configuration at the
MS-DOS command line.
■
A command-line diagnostic utility (aatmdiag.exe) allows
testing of the adapter and the ATM connection.
■
A Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) agent
interfaces with networking management software such as HP
OpenView or SunNet Manager. The SNMP agent files include
aatmsnmpd.dll, ilmi.snm.mib, and ilmi.hpov.mib.

Diagnostics
The hardware diagnostic utility aatmdiag.exe is a command-line
interface that can be used to validate that the adapter is functioning
properly. Only three commands are needed to completely test the
adapter. These are the selftest, extended SAR memory tests, and the
external ATM tests (using an external loopback cable).

Note: The selftest and SAR memory tests check most of the
functionality on the adapter. To test all functions on the
adapter, use a loopback cable and run the external ATM test.
To verify that the adapter is functioning properly, do the following:
1
Make sure you have installed the adapter and the drivers. See
Chapter 3, Installing the Adapter.
2
Select the MS-DOS Command Prompt icon in the Main
program group.
3
Change to the directory where ATM software is installed. The
default is \etc\opt\adptaatm\bin.
4
Stop all the drivers that are running. See Database File
Parameters on page B-14.
5
Start the diagnostic utility by entering the following command:
aatmdiag
For help, enter aatmdiag -h from the MS-DOS command prompt,
or type help when you are in the diagnostic command utility (at
the ADM:0> prompt).
When using the loop mode of testing, type loop. At the
LoopMode> prompt, enter the desired test. At the next
LoopMode> prompt, enter the next desired test. When you
have finished, enter end. If you wish to display the
intermediate pass results of your tests, be sure to enter
log_level 1 before you enter loop mode. For example
ADM:0> log_level 1
ADM:0> loop
LoopMode> selftest
LoopMode> sar_mem_e
LoopMode> atm_ext
LoopMode> end
6
Execute the adapter selftest by entering the following
command from the ADM:0> prompt:
ADM:0> selftest

SNMP Agent
This is for network managers and system administrators who will
use Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to manage their
ATM networks. The ATM Management Information Base (MIB) was
created from the ATM Forum UNI 3.1 ILMI MIB specifications. It
does not support RFC 1695. The ILMI MIB uses the ASN.1 format
which allows you to compile ATM driver modules into your
required network management station.
If you are using HP OpenView or SunNet Manager to manage your
network, install the MIBs on the computer that will operate as the
management station for the ATM network, see HP OpenView or IBM
NetView 6000 and SunNet Manager on page B-17. Once this station is
set up, other Windows NT computers communicate with it through
the Windows NT SNMP Service.
This Windows SNMP Service must be configured on each Windows
NT computer in the ATM network; see Windows NT documentation
for setting up Windows NT SNMP Service. If you have SNMP
Service set up before you install ATM drivers, the SNMP agent is
configured during ATM driver installation. If you set up SNMP
Service after installing ATM drivers, reconfigure the computer by
following these steps:
1
2
3
Select the Control Panel icon in the Main program group.
Select the Network icon.
Select the Adaptec ATM Adapter under Installed Adapter
Cards. Then select Configure.

Select Add.
The ILMI MIB is now compiled. For further instructions on using
HP OpenView to monitor network traffic, see the HP OpenView
documentation.
SunNet Manager
To compile and load the MIB into SunNet Manager 2.2.2 or later,
follow these instructions. For instructions for other versions, see the
documentation that came with SunNet Manager.
1
Copy the file ilmi.snm.mib from the \etc\opt\adptaatm\bin
directory (or the directory where your ATM software is
installed) into your SunNet Manager agents directory. This
may require copying this file to a different computer or
workstation.
2
Change to the directory agents in your SunNet Manager
software directory.
3
Use the utility mib2schema to generate the schema and oid files
for the MIB:
# mib2schema ilmi.snm.mib
# build-oid
4
Enter SunNet Manager to see if the MIB was compiled and
loaded.

A
API
AAL
ATM Adaptation Layer. One of
the three layers of the ATM
protocol reference model. It
translates incoming data into
ATM cell payloads and
translates outgoing cells into a
format readable by the higher
layers. Five AALs have been
defined: AAL1 and 2 handle
traffic like voice and video
which is sensitive to
transmission delays, while AAL
3, 4, and 5 pertain to data
communications through the
segmentation and reassembly of
packets.
Analog
A representation of an object
that resembles the original.
Analog devices monitor
conditions, such as movement,
temperature, and sound, and
convert them into analogous
electronic or mechanical
patterns. For example,
telephones turn voice vibrations
into electrical vibrations of the
same shape. Analog implies
continuous operation.
ANSI
American National Standards
Institute. The coordinating body
for voluntary standards groups
within the United States. ANSI
is a member of the International
Applications Programming
Interface. A method of allowing
an application to interact
directly with certain functions of
an operating system or with
another application.
ARP (ATM)
Address Resolution Protocol. A
protocol that dynamically maps
between various types of
addresses (IP addresses to Token
Ring addresses for instance) on a
local area network.
ASIC
Application Specific Integrated
Circuit. An integrated circuit
designed solely for a specific
function.
ATM
Asynchronous Transfer Mode. A
form of data transmission based
on fixed-length packets, called
cells, that can carry data, voice,
and video at high speeds. This
technology is designed to
combine the benefits of
switching technology (constant
transmission delay, guaranteed
capacity) with those of packet
switching (flexibility, efficiency
for intermittent traffic). ATM is
defined by ITU-T specifications.
ATM Layer

ATM Switches
Broadband
ATM switches are the heart of
ATM technology. ATM switches
initially set up the virtual circuit
for the end nodes to
communicate. Then they route
the incoming ATM cells using
the VPI/VCI numbers to the
appropriate outgoing VPI/VCI
and on to the respective node.
ATM switches are currently
designed with one of two
hardware standards: the ATM
backplane and the ATM matrix.
A method of using the
transmission medium’s capacity
to provide multiple
communication channels (as
opposed to baseband, where the
entire capacity of the medium is
used for a single channel).
