IMA Advantages

  1. Transport of a single ATM cell stream at rates between T1/E1 and T3/E3, taking advantage
    of cost-effective bandwidth at sub-T3/E3 rates.
  2. Provisioning of bandwidth in T1/E1 increments, which lets network planners
    increase or decrease bandwidth based on need.
  3. Bandwidth consolidation across T1/E1 link groups, leading to more efficient use of
    circuits.
  4. Automatic and transparent adjustment to accommodate added/restored and
    deleted/failed T1/E1 links, minimizing provisioning and maintenance.
  5. Transparent transport of the ATM layer and higher layers, which preserves cell order and
    ATM traffic management techniques and makes IMA compatible with the existing ATM
    architecture
