This paper describes a solution to connect the RS and do routing on the
currently planned ATM-NAP technology (i.e. RFC1490/AAL5) based on the
availability of the products. If we want to connect to the planned ATM-NAP
now, that is the approach.
The paper does not address the issue of selecting protocol stacks for the
ATM-NAPs. It is beyond the scope of the paper. We have a revised version
which clarifies this point.
