The LAN EmulationConfigurationServer (LECS) is a feature set implemented in the ATM network
that informs LAN end devices about the other LAN emulation services. The LAN Emulation Configuration Server (LECS) manages the LAN Emulation Client (LEC) affiliations to the different LAN emulations. For this purpose, the configuration information of the defined LAN emulations is entered into a configuration database, which can be used to assign a LEC to the desired emulated LAN. A LEC can thus easily belong to several emulated local networks at the same time.
