MPOA

(MultiProtocol Over ATM) An ATM Forum standard that provides routing of legacy protocols (IP, IPX, etc.) over ATM networks. MPOA separates the routing processing from the actual forwarding. A route server performs the routing calculations and sends its results to the ATM switches and edge devices which perform high-speed forwarding of the packets. Before MPOA, LAN emulation (LANE) required a router to communicate between subnets. See virtual routing, I-PNNI and LANE.

They are likely to include MPLS (mulit-protocol label switching) protocol and, later, the MPOA (multiprotocol over ATM) protcol, which seems likely to be the chief conduit for mapping LDAP definitions over ATM.
The IETF is working on protocols relevant to Layer 2 switching, and it is moving closer to publishing RFCs for Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), Multiprotocol over ATM (MPOA), the Next Hop Resolution Protocol (NHRP), and related protocols.

In the ATM Forum, answers to this question fall under the rubric "multiprotocol over ATM" or MPOA. Where LAN emulation describes how LAN frames are bridged over ATM and ignores network-layer protocols, MPOA will specify how traffic should be routed over ATM and must take network-layer protocols into account.
