Asynchronous Transfer Mode
  • (ATM) A data-transfer mode in which a multiplexing technique for fast packet switching in CCITT broadband ISDN is used. This technique inserts information in small, fixed-size cells (32-120 octets) that are multiplexed and switched in a slotted operation, based upon header content, over a virtual circuit established immediately upon a request for service.
