UNIX-based ATM multimedia architecture

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This paper describes the design and implementation of a multimedia architecture for UNIX in an ATM environment. An ATM card has been designed for the EISA bus and provides host connectivity to an ATM network. Applications that use standard protocols such as TCP/IP are supported as well as other applications that require a raw AAL5 service. To support continuous media applications such as digital video/audio, a kernel module has been designed and incorporated into the UNIX operating system. The kernel module provides an in-kernel data path which allows digital video/audio streaming directly between an ATM network adapter and a display device.
