MPOA (Multiprotocol over ATM)
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.
MPOA is an ATM Forum specification for overlaying layer 3 network routing protocols like IP over an ATM switched network environment. It allows organizations to take advantage of the bandwidth and scalability of ATM while retaining legacy LANs, the ability to create VLANs (virtual LANs), and the ability to route between those VLANs.
