ATM UNI Signaling

ATM UNI Signaling

The figure-1 depicts UNI signaling messages exchanged between user and ATM network.

Following messages are exchanged between source host, network and destination host:
• Setup
• Call Proceeding
• Connect
• Connect ACK
• Release
• Release Complete

ATM PNNI Signaling

ATM PNNI Signaling

The figure-2 depicts PNNI signaling messages. This signaling type lies between private network node interface and between private network to network interface. Here routing protocol specifies selection of routes as per QoS need. PNNI is a signaling protocol for the exchange of messages between switches and private networks.

Following messages are exchanged between source machine, switches (source and transit) and destination machine.
• Setup
• Call proceeding
• Connect
• Connect ACK
• Release
• Release Complete
