This paper describes the design and configuration of a metropolitan ATM network consisting of two superimposed virtual networks. Virtual paths and virtual switches were created to construct the two Virtual Path Networks (VPNs). Creative ideas and novel techniques were employed for network partitioning, bandwidth sharing and QoS guarantees. These techniques did allow most of the design objectives to be met.
