Gain a Comprehensive Understanding of ATM Networks with New E-Learning Course.
"ATM Networks" describes the components and operation of ATM networks. The interworking of ATM with other services such as Frame Relay is discussed as is the transport of IP traffic over an ATM network and the provision of a telephony over ATM service. The Private Network Network Interface (PNNI) protocols are also described in detail.
Course aim: This course describes the structure, operation and features of data networks employing the Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM). It is recommended that the "Principles of ATM" course in the TransNet suite is studied before attempting this course.
Pre-requisites: Understanding of the basic principles of the Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM). It is recommended that TransNet course D - Principles of ATM - is studied before attempting this course.
"ATM Networks" forms part of the TransNet series of courses.
TransNet - is a suite of interactive, multimedia e-learning courses designed to run under Windows(TM) 98, 2000 Professional or XP. - provides training in the technical aspects of Wide Area Networks and data services. - consists of eight separate but integrated courses: A Principles of Wide Area Networks B X25 data services C Frame Relay data services D Principles of ATM E ATM networks F IP networks G Advanced IP networks inc. voice over IP H DSL services Target audience: TransNet is designed for: - Those studying for a career in telecommunications and who require a detailed knowledge of modern Wide Area Networks and data services. - Technical staff involved in the operation, design or maintenance of Wide Area Networks. Virtual networks and interworking: Interconnecting LANS using ATM Permanent Virtual Connections (PVCs) interworking between Frame Relay and ATM use of a Data Exchange Interface (DXI) to connect existing equipment such as routers to an ATM network. ATM networks: Functional description of ATM switches and cross- connects components of an end-users network and an ATM public network comparison of B-ICI, DXI, FUNI, UNI, NNI and PNNI interfaces ATM signalling inc. DSS2 and B-ISUP. ATM addressing schemes: Hierarchical global addressing the different ATM private and public address structures choice of public network address scheme. Private Network Node Interface (PNNI): Signalling, addressing and route discovery aspects of the PNNI significance of peer groups the role of a Peer Group Leader (PGL) the building of a topological database the role of a Logical Group Node (LGN) description of source routing in a PNNI network requesting a quality of service using PNNI signaling operation of connection admission control structure of a PNNI address. Voice over ATM: Reducing the effects of cell fill delay interworking with a circuit-switched network with particular reference to signalling and synchronisation issues operation and features of unstructured and structured AAL 1 Circuit Emulation Services benefits and operation of an AAL 2 VBR voice trunking. IP over ATM networks: Comparison of IP and ATM networks the use and limitations of "Classical IP over ATM" benefits of the use of "cut through" ATM virtual channel connections compared with the use of IP routing using the Next Hop Resolution Protocol (NHRP) to provide "cut through" connections integrating the quality of service techniques of IP networks with those of ATM networks.
