Frame Relay Characteristics Designed to eliminate excessive X.25 overhead Control signaling takes place on a separate logical connection (nodes don’t need state tables for each call) Multiplexing/switching take place at layer 2, eliminating a layer of processing No hop-by-hop flow/error control

Unformatted text preview: fixed-size packets, called cells. ✘ No link-by-link error control or flow control. Virtual Channels & Virtual Paths ✘ Logical connections in ATM are virtual channels ✘ analogous to a virtual circuit in X.25 or a frame relay logical connection ✘ used for connections between two end users, user-network exchange (control signaling), and network-network exchange (network management and routing) ✘ A virtual path is a bundle of virtual channels Advantages of Virtual Paths ✘ Simplified network architecture ✘ Increased network performance and reliability ✘ Reduced processing and short connection setup time ✘ Enhanced network services Virtual-Path/Virtual-Channel Characteristics ✘ Quality of service ✘ Switched and semi-permanent virtual-channel connections ✘ Cell sequence integrity ✘ Traffic parameter negotiation and usage monitoring ATM Cell Format ATM Bit Rate Services...
