asynchronous transfer mode - Investment & Finance Definition
A network that divides messages into small cells, or fixed-size units, that establish a switched connection between two computers. By separating the transmission into small pieces, different types of signals (such as data, voice, and audio) can be sent over a single line without any one type dominating the transmission. It provides fast transmission speeds.
