In your humble opinion, which transmission method is more efficient, packet or cell?  Granted a cell is a fixed length 
packet and an IP packet is variable length....would this necessarily only relate to a specific protocol,  namely, cell 
in ATM, and IP in Ethernet or other  types of domains....feedback highly welcomed.  Trying to make a decision on the 
transport mode for cost, delay, jitter, ROI, etcetera.
