No traffic equals no scaling problems. Right? Did you see Tim's NANOG presentation? Seems they are having enough trouble getting ATM to work in a point to point configuration on a real network (with delay). Matches our NAP test findings as well. Not that ATM is hopeless, just the equipment may not be quite ready for 1994 deployment in a critical Internet exchange point carrying lots of TCP wide area traffic. I think that is still an open question (deploy first, figure out if it will work later?). Curtis - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
