MCI [ATM overhead]

Jeff, would you or anyone give an example or two of when you get
PARTIALLY filled ATM cells? I've interviewed dave sincoskie, steve
tabaska, and Stephen von rump so far. they all rather like ATM. Don't
believe I heard about this problem from them. You aren't talking about
the switch not being able to tell whether a cell is mangled before it
transmits by any chance are you???

Since TCP/IP packets are of variable length, the last ATM cell
for the packet will not be full. The remaining bytes in the cell
are wasted bandwidth.
