Course Description

This two-day course is a comprehensive introduction to Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), one of the fastest growing segments in the telecommunications industry. It is intended for people who may have had some exposure to the technology and are seeking a broader understanding.

Specific objectives include:

  • Review of ATM basic concepts

  • Provide status on markets & applications

  • Provide an in-depth view of ATM networking, interworking and internetworking

  • Provide a thorough understanding across all areas of the technology

  • Describe how ATM relates to other evolving network technologies

The course introduces the challenge of data communications today and describes how ATM addresses these challenges. It provides a thorough review of the ATM protocol model and ATM network interfaces, and an opportunity to test one's own knowledge with questionnaires and quizzes.

Recommended Audience

Students who require an in-depth review of ATM ,its elements, protocols and definitions. Participants are expected to have a strong understanding of data communications, systems and communications protocols.
