This paper gives the motivation behind the specification of MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 standards, and describes their system layers' syntactical structure, without considering the audio or video specific coding features. As only the MPEG-2 Transport Stream (TS) is provided with functionalities similar to those of ATM, a comparative analysis of MPEG-2 TS with respect to ATM is carried out, on the basis of significant performance parameters like jitter and multiplexing efficiency. The paper puts emphasis on the potential of MPEG-2 and ATM to implement the transmission convergence sublayer of large capacity access systems. Signalling, network management, service discrimination, routing and addressing capabilities are investigated.
