Enterprise Serving with Client-Server as the underlying computing paradigm has become the computing model for organizations. In enterprise serving, an interconnected set of specialized and heterogeneous servers provide the computational and storage needs of client workstations-all in a transparent fashion. Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) has the promise of capturing the total network upon which enterprise serving operates. That is, ATM can be deployed from the workstation all the way to the server. Current servers are not designed for handling high bandwidth multimedia traffic and effectively delivering the high bandwidth of the ATM network to the processor boards where applications reside. It is feasible that extending ATM into the server as the interconnect fabric and communication architecture will be a solution. This solution is further analyzed and simulation results is reported.
