AES Proposes Digital Transmission Using ATM Networking

AES Proposes Digital Transmission Using ATM Networking

The Audio Engineering Society Standards Committee is soliciting comments on a draft standard specifying the use of Asynchronous Transfer Mode to provide digital audio transmission across digital networks with high performance with regard to bandwidth, latency and other relevant factors.
Asynchronous Transfer Mode offers the capacity to carry uncompressed audio across local and wide-area networks with a small and constant latency and with a guaranteed quality of service. It uses point-to-point topology to avoid the time delays inherent in other forms of packet routing. Circuit set up, routing and switching are managed in a similar way to ISDN, but calls are not restricted in bandwidth.
