Zaawansowane aspekty Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)

This course enlarges basic knowledge related to ATM (e.g. gained during ATM Introduction course). The major objective of this course is to allow participants to be familiar with complex ATM issues: different adaptation layers, signalling and addressing as well as traffic management. These concepts are later discussed with the relation to specific ATM applications such as Voice Over ATM and interworking with other technologies. The final part of this course presents a short view on ATM deployment in operators’ networks in recent years.

Target Audience

Individuals that require an in-depth view of specific ATM aspects: its definitions, protocols and applications. They could hold positions of Transmission Engineers, Transmission Specialists, System and Network Engineers. However Sales Engineers and Consultants would also benefit from this course.


Prior to attending this course, participants must possess a basic knowledge of data networking including ATM and IP principles.
