Advance Network Technologies
To write a report, not more than 3,000 words, discussing
the comparison of HDLC, Frame Relay, PPP and ATM in
terms of functionality. The report should include
discussions on comparison of these Datalink layer WAN
protocols in terms of performance and functional
differences.
Task1:
Students are required to do the following tasks for various
aspects of comparison of various Layer 2 WAN protocols.
(Total marks of task 1.a & 2.b 13 marks) as the following:
Task 1.a: Comparison of various layer 2 Wide area
network protocols in terms functionality. This refers to how
various WAN protocols are operating and what are
functional and significant difference them. (5 marks)
Task 1.b: Read the following white paper of layer 2 Wide
area network protocols which is on the following link:
http://oldsite.mcoecn.org/WhitePapers/CISCO-FRAME-
RELAY-ATM-TECHNOLOGY.PDF
and summarize it in terms of (e.g. security, performance,
reliability, ease of implementation etc.). in one page. The
summary must cover all parts of the paper and should
include the main ideas presented in the paper.
(8 marks)
I will vote as excellent answer if you write as expected
thanks a lot ^_^

Solution
In 1991 a new ISP, ANS CO+RE (commercial plus
research), was created as a for-profit subsidiary of the
non-profit Advanced Network and Services. ANS CO+RE
was created specifically to allow commercial traffic on
ANSNet without jeopardizing its parent\'s non-profit status
or violating any tax laws.
The NSFNET Backbone Service and ANS CO+RE both
used and shared the common ANSNet infrastructure. NSF
agreed to allow ANS CO+RE to carry commercial traffic
subject to several conditions:
The NSFNET initiated operations in 1986 using TCP/IP. Its
six backbone sites were interconnected with leased 56-
kb/s links, built by a group including the University of
Illinois National Center for Supercomputing Applications
(NCSA), Cornell University Theory Center,University of
Delaware, and Merit Network. PDP-11/73 minicomputers
with routing and management software, called Fuzzballs,
served as the network routers since they already
implemented the TCP/IP standard.
This original 56 kbit/s backbone was overseen by the
