Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) technology has received an unprecedented level of worldwide acceptance as the emerging standard for information communication. Transitioning to new information technologies routinely exposes organizations to new difficulties. Well-considered migration strategies will facilitate the implementation of ATM technology. This study performs an architectural analysis of using frame switched enterprise networking as a strategic step in migrating from conventional networks to ATM networks. Application of the strategy to a multi-vendor, multi-protocol internet, the U.S. Department of Transportation Intermodal Data Network, is considered.
