SunATM 2.0 SBus Adapter
SunATM adapters are single-wide SBus cards that conform to ATM Forum Specifications.
One implementation offers
155Mbps network bandwidth over multimode fiber and the other supports
category 5 Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) wiring.
Product Features include
SunATM adapters include an SBus implementation of the ATM SAR (Segmentation And Reassembly) function. The adapters support
the ATM SAR via a SAHI-3 (SBus to ATM Host Interface) ASIC implemented in CMOS by Sun. The adapters have an SBus
interface and accommodate modular physical interface cards. The physical interface cards are SONET multimode fiber, and category 5
The SunATM-155/MFiber adapter supports 155 Mbps operation over multimode fiber. The SunATM-155/UTP5 adapter supports
category 5 UTP wiring. These SunATM adapters will continue to be compatible with the relevant emerging standards, including
existing ATM Forum baseline specifications.
