The EPFL ATM network

Contact person: Hans Einsiedler

Our ATM network is operational since the end of August 1995. It is made of three switches, one at the Central computing service of EPFL and one each at the TCOM and LRC labs.


We made measurements between one workstation in the LRC and one workstation in the TCOM lab on both the ATM network and on the Ethernet network. It was possible with the changing of the TCP paramaters, to increase the access to the network - so called: fast tcp.

Here are the reults:

The network is being maintained by Bruno Dufresne (TCOM), Hans Einsiedler (LRC) and the SIC (Service informatique central).
