ATM Training Advanced | Asynchronous Transfer Mode Advanced Training


ATM Advanced Training | Asynchronous Transfer Mode Advanced Training Course Description

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), a key component of Broadband ISDN (B-ISDN), is a widely deployed technology that is recognized for its multimedia capabilities and flexibility. However, it’s not an easy technology to master. This in-depth two-day ATM Advanced Training | Asynchronous Transfer Mode Advanced Training course is the second of our two courses on ATM. This ATM Advanced Training | Asynchronous Transfer Mode Advanced Training course picks up where its predecessor leaves off, helping you greatly advance and expand your knowledge of ATM.

Customize It:

● If you are familiar with some aspects of this course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
● We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
● If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
