      The 1990's has been an era of integrating telemetry systems into networks. With the networking of telemetry systems, communications between systems is increasingly important. The telemetry system is no longer an isolated subsystem and the requirement for ubiquitous, distribution of telemetry data is also increasing. With declining DoD budgets, the cost of providing, not only, range-wide data distribution, but also, inter-range distribution is a major issue. Recent developments in commercial telecommunication data services may provide an answer to the range communications problems. In this paper, the use of Asynchronous transfer Mode (ATM) technology is examined as a means for transporting telemetry and other range data.
