Atm Networks for Factory Communication

  title={Atm Networks for Factory Communication},
In this paper the authors discuss the suitability of the Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) as a data transfer technology for factory communications. The paper will focus on the special requirements of the sensor/actuator level to transmit real-time control data via an ATM network. A performance analysis of a potential ATM system on fieldbus level is presented by providing simulation results. The simulations study the influence of different network topologies, ATM cell scheduling strategies and… CONTINUE READING
