Gain a Comprehensive Understanding of ATM Networks with New E-Learning Course.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of E-Learning Course: ATM Networks to their offering.

"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.
- 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.
