In an ATM network, there are quality impairments particular to the ATM network such as cell loss and delay variation. During ATM network planning, therefore, various causes of quality impairments should be clarified. This paper overviews ATM network performance issues, and discusses performance requirements for the SDH network which will be applied as a physical layer of the ATM network. It also presents ATM network performance planning methods on cell loss and cell delay.
