This course describes the nature and types of ATM end-system addressing. It explains the purpose and scope of ATM addressing and introduces the various address formats. In particular, it details the Network Service Access Point (NSAP) address structure, the foundation of ATM routing. The course continues by discussing the addressing required at the local interface level. It discusses ATM routing by explaining the use of Integrated Local Management Interface (ILMI) for local routing, and Public Network-to-Network Interface (PNNI) for network routing. It also describes various other signalling processes and protocols for network interfaces.
Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to describe PNNI and NSAP addressing in ATM networks.
This course is for network professionals and managerial staff who are interested in learning about ATM addressing and routing.
