This question can't be answered based on what you provided here.  ATM is a technology and not a service that can be purchased.  Different service providers have different "flavors" of ATM and different equipment will be necessary.  I'd suggest contacting your service vendor of choice and getting their recommendation on equipment.  You might also want to consider letting them provide and install the equipment since you seem to be new to this.

jhance, I don't know much about ATM but I would like you to tell me about the H/w used in establishing a Lan that will be using ATM protocol. Is there anything special which is required by the Lan in this case? If yes, for which purpose will it be used.

The HW used for an ATM hookup is the same as that for a "regular" network hookup.  All that might be different is ensuring that you use a router that supports ATM. So normally you might have three different pieces of equipment installed.  First, a CSU/DSU that handles the interface from the incoming telco service (say a fractional T1 or whatever) and converts the data to digital for the router.  Then it goes to the router (CISCO, Bay Networks, etc.).  Out of the router comes your Ethernet and this usually goes to a hub or switch/hub.
