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.

What’s Included?

  • 2 days of ATM Advanced Training with an expert instructor
