This paper proposes efficient strategies for address resolution and QoS (Quality of Service) guarantees between a huge network contained ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Model) and Ethernet. To fulfill these purposes, first, we have to solve the `addressing problem'. The classical IP (Internet Protocol) over ATM, LAN (Local Area Network) Emulation, Peer Model, Next Hop Resolution Protocol (NHRP) and Multiprotocol Over ATM (MPOA) have been proposed, but there are some limitations to these methods. The Peer Leader Address Resolution Protocol (PLARP) will be introduced to reduce these limitations. To attain the QoS guarantees between an ATM and traditional network (such as Ethernet), a new connection admission control engine named the `Edge-device Connection Admission Control (ECAC) Server' is proposed for multimedia data transmissions. The ECAC server takes the responsibility of auditing connection requests and flow control. The performance evaluation results show the advantages of the strategies proposed in this paper.
