Let me put in a plug for some ATM signaling code that I worked on. It's
called SEAN (Signaling Entity for ATM Networks) and it's a complete
implementation of UNI 4.0 plus an API for native ATM applications. It's
available for free from the Naval Research Laboratory,
If you have a NIC, then SEAN gives you real ATM. Currently, the only NIC that
SEAN supports is the FORE Systems SBA-200e on Sun SPARC/Solaris. It would be
nice to have support for other ATM NICs and for our Favorite OS.
If you don't have a NIC, you can use SEAN to simulate ATM over TCP/IP. SEAN
runs fine this way under NetBSD.
