ATM Networks

Major objective of this lecture is to explain on ATM Networks. ATM networks are packet-switched, but still create a (virtual) circuit through the network. Before transfer can occur, the network must create a path (called a virtual circuit) between the two machines. Here also focus on ATM Protocol Architecture, ATM Switches, ATM Messaging etc. Finally discuss on Virtual Circuits, ATM Service Model, TCP/IP Tunneling and IP Switching.
