this memo is unlimited.

1. Abstract

This document represents an initial list of requirements submitted to

the ATM Forum's Multiprotocol BOF for the operation of IP over ATM

networks as determined by the IETF IP over ATM Working Group and

other working groups. This RFC is issued for the benefit of community

members. The information contained in this document is accurate as

of the date of publication, but is subject to change. Subsequent

RFCs will reflect such changes.

The content of this memo was submitted by the IETF Liaison to the ATM

Forum as contribution number 94-0954 in the ATM Forum's documentation

process on 14 September 1994.

2. Notice

This contribution has been prepared to assist the ATM Forum. This

document is offered to the Forum as a basis for discussion between

the ATM Forum Multiprotocol BOF and the IETF. The statements are

subject to change in form and content after further study and

discussion. Specifically, the IETF reserves reserves the right to

add to, amend or modify the statements contained herein.

3. Introduction

The following is the charter statement from the Internet Engineering

Task Force's (IETF) IP over ATM Working Group (IPATM WG). It is

being reproduced here for the benefit of those in the ATM Forum who

may not be familiar with it:

"The IP over ATM Working Group will focus on the issues involved in

running internetworking protocols over Asynchronous Transfer Mode

(ATM) networks. The final goal for the Working Group is to produce

standards for the TCP/IP protocol suite and recommendations which

could be used by other internetworking protocol standards (e.g., ISO

CLNP and IEEE 802.2 Bridging).

The Working Group will initially develop experimental protocols for

encapsulation, multicasting, addressing, address resolution, call set

up, and network management to allow the operation of internetwork

protocols over an ATM network. The Working Group may later submit

these protocols for IETF standardization.

The Working Group will not develop physical layer standards for ATM.

These are well covered in other standards groups and do not need to

be addressed in this Group.

The Working Group will develop models of ATM internetworking

architectures. This will be used to guide the development of

specific IP over ATM protocols.

The Working Group will also develop and maintain a list of technical

unknowns that relate to internetwo...
