Do you know any happy customers? No traffic equals no scaling
Did you see Tim's NANOG presentation? Seems they are having enough
trouble getting ATM to work in a point to point configuration on a
real network (with delay). Matches our NAP test findings as well.
Not that ATM is hopeless, just the equipment may not be quite ready
for 1994 deployment in a critical Internet exchange point carrying
lots of TCP wide area traffic. I think that is still an open question
(deploy first, figure out if it will work later?).
