The Frame Relay and ATM Networks is a four-day instructor-led training. In this course, trainees will be presented with basic knowledge concepts on Frame Relay and ATM networks. After describing the typical traffic sources for these networks, the training will analyze protocols, network architectures, operating modalities, QoS policies and functions in terms of management and maintenance.
The difference between frame relay and ATM lies in the speed of transmission, efficiency, accurate delivery of the packets, etcetera. The frame relay provides 1.544 Mbps or 44.736 Mbps. On the other hand, ATM provides 51 Mbps or 155 Mbps. The frame relay is controlled through the software while ATM is implemented for hardware which makes it more costly and fast. ATM can achieve higher processing and switching speed by providing flow and error control.
