Normal clearpath services (esp. international) do not offer substantially redundant routing, whereas this is often available on ATM. Also use of one physical i/fs for multiple logical links with aggregation (i.e. w/o time slicing) - i.e. the advantages of FR. I find it odd that telcos are happy-ish to offer ATM internationally but not FR at >2Mb/s though FR has less overhead than ATM - anything to do with the fact telcos would encapsulate this in ATM anyway and take the hit themselves? But basically, yes its a bps (IP) per buck argument for PtP links. Alex Bligh Xara Networks - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
