ATM (asynchronous transfer mode) transport system
A transport system composed of a carrier system terminated by an ATM multiplexer at each end. The relationship between input and output, i.e., virtual circuits, cannot change on a per call basis, i.e., permanent virtual circuits only are supported. This device does not allow blocking or signal compression. [T1.Rpt46-1996]
