An Introduction to ATM Networks by Harry G. Perros

By Harry G. Perros

Asynchronous move Mode (ATM) has revolutionized telecommunications, and has turn into an essential component of the networking infrastructure.This introductory well-structured textual content on ATM networks describes their improvement, structure, congestion regulate, deployment, and signalling in an intuitive, available method. It covers huge heritage info and comprises routines that help the reasons during the book.The networking specialist Harry G. Perros explains ATM networks, together with such sizzling themes as:* ATM variation layer 2* caliber of provider* Congestion keep watch over* Tag switching and MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching)* ADSL-based entry networks* Signalling* PNNI (Private community Node Interface)An creation to ATM Networks is a textbook for graduate scholars and undergraduates in electric engineering and laptop technological know-how in addition to a reference paintings for networking engineers.An on-line ideas guide is now on hand.

Example text

An example of how two nodes communicate using circuit switching, virtual circuits, and datagrams is given in Figure 2. 1. In this example, node 1 communicates with node 4 through intermediate nodes 2 and 3. The passage of time is indicated on the vertical lines, and there is one vertical line per node. In the circuit switching case, the time it takes node 1 to transmit the call request packet and the message is indicated vertically between the two arrows on the first line associated with node 1.

At this layer, a packet is referred to as a frame. Below, we examine the window-flow control mechanism, error detection schemes, and the error control mechanism. Window-flow control This is a technique for ensuring that a transmitting station does not over-run the receiving station's buffer. The simplest scheme is stop-and-wait. The sender transmits a single frame and then waits until the receiver gets the frame and sends an acknowledgment (ACK). When the sender receives the ACK, it transmits a new frame.

Tl carries the DS-1 signal, T2 the DS-2 signal, T3 the DS-3 signal, and so on. Similarly, El carries the level-1 signal, E2 carries the level-2 signal, and so on. 1 The North American Hierarchy. 2 The international (ITU-T) hierarchy. 11 The DS-1 format. interchangeably. For instance, one does not distinguish between a Tl line and the DS-1 signal. The same applies for the international hierarchy. 11, consists of 24 8-bit slots and a 1-bit slot for frame synchronization. On the 1-bit slot channel, the frame synchronization pattern 1010101...
