This is the third course in a five part series that students will learn the history and overview of Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), the relationship between ATM and B-ISDN, ATM adaptation layer, and ATM cells. Students will also learn about virtual paths and channels, physical layer, ATM traffic control, LAN emulation, traffic management, real-time ATM management, ATM v 10 Gbps Ethernet, and Switched Multimegabit Data Service (SMDS).
