Network Requirements

Networking with video raises problems that go beyond bandwidth. Video requires predictable delivery and so unless the LAN is hardly being used, it is almost impossible to conduct a real time video conference. Solutions such as Ethernet and Fibre Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) provide more bandwidth, but the delivery is still unpredictable. Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) will probably provide the solution and hence ATM based switching systems are now being marketed.
