DGM&S announces new ATM software package; innovative package expedites ATM product development.MT. LAUREL, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 1996--DGM&S today announced its ATM strategy and unveiled the company's first Asynchronous Transfer Mode See ATM.
(communications) Asynchronous Transfer Mode - (ATM, or "fast packet") A method for the dynamic allocation of bandwidth using a fixed-size packet (called a cell).

Indiana acronyms. (ATM) product portfolio, the ProATM(TM) Software Development Package.
The DGM&S offering is to provide a software package that expedites local area and wide area networking (LAN/WAN LAN/WAN Local Area Network/Wide Area Network ) convergence, as well as to integrate public and private subnetworks with ATM technology. DGM&S has begun forming strategic partnerships with chip manufacturers and equipment vendors to develop hardware and software products which integrate communications and information technology.
The DGM&S ATM strategy, according to Rex McWilliams, DGM&S President/CEO, is "to provide advanced networking and high value communications solutions to ATM developers, hardware manufacturers, and equipment suppliers that are complementary with their ATM activities. Doing so gives DGM&S the opportunity to offer unsurpassed user value that expedites product development efforts, lowers development costs, and time to market."
"We utilize the high quality software development expertise for which DGM&S is recognized, and leverage our strengths in signaling protocol software development and hardware design to deliver a machine independent and highly portable architecture for ATM development" added McWilliams. "Our entry into ATM is a natural migration for DGM&S, based on both our ISDN BRI and PRI PRI: see Institutional Revolutionary party.
(Primary Rate Interface) An ISDN service that provides 23 64 Kbps B (Bearer) channels and one 64 Kbps D (Data) channel (23B+D), which is equivalent to the 24 channels of a T1 line. software growth that originated in 1985 and still continues today, as well as our SS7 OMNI OMNI Omnidirectional

DGM&S has two comprehensive ATM offerings. An ATM Forum-compliant User Network Interface (UNI 3.1) package that includes a LAN emulation V1.0 module and Classical IP and ARP over ATM as defined in RFC1577. This allows DGM&S to provide device driver templates for most custom ATM hardware implementations used in customer premises and enterprise network solutions.
The second offering incorporates ITU-T See ITU.

ProATM provides a Q.HSL migration path for equipment providers geared towards the public network.
"The key to ATM adoption is in providing an affordable migration path for current LAN (Local Area Network) A communications network that serves users within a confined geographical area. The "clients" are the user's workstations typically running Windows, although Mac and Linux clients are also used. technologies, and the availability of applications which take advantage of the technology. The introduction of ProATM has effectively expanded the range of ATM-based software offerings. ProATM can be used in a range of ATM-based products including; routers, hubs, switches, set-top boxes for Video-on-Demand, network interface cards and other networking products" claimed Seamus Gilchrist, ProATM Product Manager. "Traditionally, ATM participants have had to develop their own software or port a complex third party software package to their product prior to starting solutions development. Now they can preserve their resources with a cost effective software solution available with the technical expertise required to hasten the time to market."
DGM&S is currently involved with a number of consortiums/partnerships focusing on ATM product development as well as fostering applications development. DGM&S offers technical services that help expedite ATM product development. DGM&S provides the expertise to plan, design and implement ATM solutions that incorporate the DGM&S ProATM family.
DGM&S develops, markets and supports network and customer premises applications and services. DGM&S has built on its long experience in telephony technologies and is evolving its products and services to exploit new services, network technologies and platforms. DGM&S is continuing to meet network technology needs of the carriers, vendors and end-user via hardware and software designs customized for client's specific needs and requirements.
