ATM Technology Adoption in U.S. Campus Networking.
Yao, Engui; Perry, John F.; Anderson, Larry S.; Brook, R. Dan; Hare, R. Dwight; Moore, Arnold J.; Xu, Xiaohe
This study examined the relationships between ATM (asynchronous transfer mode) adoption in universities and four organizational variables: university size, type, finances, and information processing maturity. Another purpose of the study was to identify the current status of ATM adoption in campus networking. Subjects were university domain LAN (local area network) administrators in the United States. A questionnaire was posted on the World Wide Web, and Internet e-mail was used to distribute the cover letter. A total of 199 usable responses were received. Logistic regression was used to study the relationship between the variables and ATM adoption, and nested models and an enrollment size model were designed for analyzing data. Results indicated that ATM adoption in campus networking is significantly related to the selected organizational variables. Tables present data on: frequencies for ATM adoption status; descriptive statistics for the predictor variables and categorical variables; and logistic regression coefficients and goodness-of-fit for the nested models and for the enrollment size model.
