ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) still remains the strongest choice for public and private network interconnectivity despite the rise of IP (Internet Protocol) according to a new report from New Jersey-based telecommunications analysts Insight Research. The report claims that ATM has evolved to become the best approach for merging many different types of traffic onto a single network while still maintaining high performance. According to ATM: Services and Technology at a Crossroads 1998-2003, traditional carriers will be more comfortable with ATM solutions as the next evolutionary step in upgrading their voice networks, while newer carriers will be more willing to consider other alternatives such as IP. Insight also predicts that global retail service revenue to business and home users will jump from just $168 million this year to $7.3 billion by 2003. ®
