IP over ATM

   A set of proposals that define general methods of integrating Internet Protocol over an Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) network, while preserving the best features of the connectionless IP and connection-oriented ATM.
   These proposals have a variety of names, including layer 3 switching, high-speed routing, short-cut routing, and multilayer switching, and come from a variety of sources, including the ATM Forum, the Internet Engineering Task Force, and a vendor collective known as Layer 3 Switching/Routing Advocates.
   See also IP switching.
