n asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks, multi-plexing and switching are performed on 53-byte cells which are transported across the network on virtual channel connections (VCCs) [1]. A virtual path connection (VPC) is a labeled path which can be used to transport, process, and manage a bundle of VCCs. Two levels of cell forwarding are defined: virtual path (VP) and virtual channel (VC), which use the virtual path identifier (VPI) and virtual channel iden-tifier (VCI) fields in the cell… CONTINUE READING
