  Asynchronous Transfer Mode
ATM is based on the switching of 53-byte cells, in which each cell consists of a 5-byte header and a payload of 48 bytes of information.
Thus, the ATM layer is responsible for relaying cells from the AAL to the Physical layer for transmission, and in the opposite direction from the Physical layer to the AAL for use in an endpoint.
ATM Adaptation layers are distinguished from one another based on the method by which the 48-byte cell payload constructed as a data stream generated by a higher-level protocol is passed to the ATM layer.

 Asynchronous Transfer Mode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) is a cell relay network protocol which encodes data traffic into small fixed-sized (53 byte; 48 bytes of data and 5 bytes of header information) cells instead of variable sized packets (sometimes known as frames) as in packet-switched networks (such as the Internet Protocol or Ethernet).
