GSMP (General Switch Management Protocol)
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
GSMP (General Switch Management Protocol) is an Ipsilon protocol specification that is designed to control an ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) switch. With GSMP, a controller can establish and release connections across the ATM switch, add and delete nodes on a point-to-multipoint connection, manage switch ports, request configuration information, and request statistics.
