Abstract

Many systems use pre-pended headers to help route frames and cells through the system. Disclosed is a method used to place the Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) Cells in a fixed buffer location regardless of the length of the pre-pended header. This fixed location makes it easy for the system software to locate the Cell.
