Differentiate ATM and OSI model?

OSI reference model as defined in ITU-T recommendation x.200(ITU-T as 1994d) is a logical architecture which defines a set of principles including protocol layering, layer service definition ,service primitives and independence. these principles are suitable for the definition of the B-ISDN /atm.However, not all of these principle have been fully applied in the B-ISDN PRM.
