Archive[ edit ] I have archived the pre discussion to Talk: Not to be confused with Automated Teller Machine. Since ATM no longer redirects here, is this hatnote still useful, or is it a distraction?
W Nowicki talk Next issue, many things are defined in standards, whether they were commercialized and ever used is a different story, so what are the most common ways to the move an ATM stream other than a DSL modem and multiplexing into SONET?
Two, talk pages are for discussing ways to improve the article, not a general forum for conversation about the topic. As you can see at the ITU link, asynchronous transfer mode is also used on p. Carefully edited reference works and publications such as Britannica also use lowercase when explaining acronyms like ATM.
Some organizations including Wikipedia do not capitalise common nouns in titles, but they never lowercase proper nouns in titles or in text. Please do not revert again while the issue is being discussed here.
Page i, 1 and 11 the body of the text has it capiltalized everywhere. It is a proper noun and it why it was moved on 24 December from Asynchronous transfer mode to Asynchronous Transfer Mode. The same is true of Integrated Services Digital Network, Broadband Integrated Services Digital Network, and Public Switched Telephone Network and many other topic areas in the field of communications, a handful of which from your recent edits you appear to wish to somehow make common nouns.
For example, your move of Broadband Integrated Services Digital Network, to Broadband integrated services digital network is quite inappropriate: You might find it useful to think whether ATM or any of these are properly preceded by any or some. Where it is obvious that we can say any telephone network, or some transport protocol, naturally.
Common nouns refer to a class. ATM is not a class. As a counter-example, consider cyclic redundancy code. CRC is not a proper noun. It is a class of algorithms. CRCc is a proper noun. Stream Control Transmission Protocol is a proper noun.
You will see that in the articles and in I. Asynchronous time-division switching is a common noun referring to the class of protocols of which ATM is a standardized, specific and particular instance. You appear upset that I reverted your changes. Once ever so often an editor goes stomping though these pages changing all of the proper nouns to lower case, causing an effort to change them all back.
To avoid bother, it is common to simply revert these without much comment. Please consider all such changes as controversial and discuss your intended changes before making them to avoid causing unnecessary work for the regular contributors to these articles.
Please also consider reducing that work load by reverting your own recent changes to these articles. Bad because it makes people believe these nouns are proper nouns.
Many if not most ITU webpages use lowercase. The very fact that carefully edited publications like Britannica use lowercase proves that ATM is a common noun. Believe me, professional editors of encyclopedias know a lot more about grammar and spelling than engineers, and professional editors of reference works have extensive databases of citations at their disposal, on which they base their decisions.
Any attempts to use tests like "any" or "some" to decide whether something is a common noun amount to OR and are hopelessly amateurish. This has to be interpreted as an attack on the editors that revert your versions.
If these use both uppercase and lowercase, MOS clearly states we should use lowercase, especially when general reference works like Britannica also use lowercase not to mention most ITU and IEC webpages. Your aggressive removal of information is an attack, not my pointing out that we are not even supposed to try to be professional editors and definitely not try to be above them.
I am a professional editor BTW, but that is not why we should follow what I feel is clearly correct. One of the reasons WP is so good is because people who spend a lot of time reading and writing about a topic may be blind to major problems, including general English spelling "rules" habits and to usage in general reference works and even on specialist websites like IEC and ITU.
Infrequent visitors, especially when they provide reliable sources, should definitely not be simply shrugged off, reverted, and driven out. Dgtsyb is not confused about these issues, as the editor just laid out explicitly and correctly the very good reasons that are used to establish proper and common noun usage not only in telecommunications, but the English language.
Not following these criteria is absurd and would be controversial no matter what some reference text might use.
Your comments are simply absurd for other reasons too. Some organizations including ITU and Wikipedia do not capitalise common nouns in titles, but they never lowercase proper nouns in titles or in text.Thirteen recommendations outlining the fundamental principles and initial specifications for B-ISDN were approved in , with Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) being the transfer mode .

The HealthNet Manager subsystem consists of a group of objects that will be distributed in the Asynchronous Transfer Mode Network that will support the second medical opinion service among the Reference Centers.

Before using this information and the product it supports, be sure to read the general information under • Asynchronous.
The telecommunication infrastructure is provided by two methods: The first is a private asynchronous transfer mode network established and operated by program personnel. The second is dial-up access via the public switched telephone network. Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) Fundamentals Definition Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) is a high-performance, cell-oriented switching and multiplexing technology that utilizes fixed-length packets to carry different types of traffic.
