Forouzan: MCQ in Virtual-Circuit Networks: Frame Relay and ATM

(Last Updated On: April 20, 2018)
MCQs for Virtual-Circuit Networks: Frame Relay and ATM
This is the MCQ in Virtual-Circuit Networks: Frame Relay and ATM from book the Data Communications and Networking 4th Edition by Behrouz A. Forouzan. If you are looking for a reviewer in datacom, topic in Electronics Systems and Technologies (Communications Engineering) this will definitely help you before taking the Board Exam.

The topic discuss the two switched WANs: Frame Relay and ATM. Frame Relay is a virtual-circuit wide-area network that was designed in response to demands for a new type of WAN in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) is a cell relay protocol that, in combination with SONET, allows high-speed connections. If you skip the summary and important terminology visit Virtual-Circuit Networks: Frame Relay and ATM .
