This paper presents the switching control and VLSI architecture for the AAL2 switch. The ATM network with the AAL2 switch can efficiently transmit low-bit-rate data, even if the network has many endpoints. The switch is capable of not only switching AAL2 cells but also converting the header of other types of ATMs. The AAL2 switch is integrated into a single chip. The proposed ATM network is constructed by AAL2 switches attached to the ATM switches.
