Product Overview

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) is a form of "fast packet" switching service for high-speed networks which require flexible bandwidth, high-performance transport and switching for connectivity between and among widely distributed customer locations. ATM is a cell-based, connection-oriented, switching and multiplexing technology designed to be a fast, general-purpose transfer mode for multiple services. ATM Cell Relay Service (ATM CRS) is a public service that enables customers to construct wide area virtual private ATM networks.

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) is a standards-based technology that provides high-speed telecommunications transport of voice, data and video traffic over a single network facility. It is a fast-packet switched technology, which divides any transmission type (voice, data or video) into fixed-length, 53-byte cells and sends those cells through virtual circuits over the public fast packet switched network. Local ATM Services include: See local tariff for availability
  • Bandwidth - DS1, DS3, OC3C, OC12C
    DS1- Full bandwidth
    DS3/OC3c - Full or incremental bandwidth - select in 5Mbps increments
    OC12c - Full or incremental bandwidth - select in 15Mbps increments
  • Quality of Service (QoS)
  • Port Only or Port and Access Services
  • Incremental or Full Bandwidth Services
  • Tier mileage bands
ATM provides the end user with multiple logical connections over a single physical interface. Once the customer is connected to the network interface, the ATM service functionality inside the network ensures that the customer's circuit(s) is providing the necessary service parameters that have been established and are routed properly to their destination.

Frame Relay Service (FRS) is a "fast packet" network service that permits the transmission of data at speeds of 56/64Kbps, 128 Kbps, 256Kbps, 384 Kbps, 1.536 Mbps, 4Mbps, 6Mbps, 10Mbps, 22Mbps, and 44.736 Mbps using Frame Relay Access Lines and Permanent Virtual Circuits (PVCs). Frame Relay is a transport service that facilitates exchange of variable length information units (frames) between end user connections by way of assigned virtual connections. Each frame is passed to the Frame Relay network with an address that specifies the virtual connection. Frame Relay Service (FRS) is a fast-packet service that utilizes PVCs (permanent virtual circuits) to connect multiple locations over the public network. A PVC is a logical path between two ports that acts like a private line. With FRS, multiple Local Area Networks (LANs) can access information from distant mainframes or servers. Local Frame Relay Services include: See local tariff for availability
  • DS0 (56/64 Kbps) Port Only or Port and Access
  • Fractional DS1 (384 Kbps) Port Only or Port and Access
  • DS1 (1.536 Mbps) Port Only or Port and Access
  • Fractional DS3 (4, 6 10 and 22 Mbps) Port only or Port and Access
  • Full DS3 (45 Mbps) Port only or Port and Access
  • PVC CIR (Permanent Virtual Circuits/Committed Information Rate)
Frame Relay is connection-oriented. Once a connection is established, it remains active throughout the transmission. All data packets, or frames, follow this same path from the source to the destination. All data packets, or frames, follow this same path from the source to the destination.

Transparent LAN Service (TLS) is a fiber-based access, switching and transport service that utilizes a shared backbone to provide customers with Ethernet LAN Interconnection among multiple sites within a LATA. TLS is designed to enable interconnection of Local Area Networks (LANs) within a metro-wide network at native LAN speeds using a dedicated fiber access method. TLS is offered to customers whose sites are within the acceptable range of the nearest deployed switch. Verizon will provision a Network Interface Device (NID) at each customer site to terminate the loop fiber and provide a standard interface for connecting into the customer's Local Area Network (LAN).

Standard Ethernet Interfaces
  • 10 Mbps
  • 100 Mbps
  • 1000 Mbps (GigE)

  • TLS is a network-based service that includes: Network Interface Device (NID) at end-user location. A dedicated fiber pair, from NID to Switch central office, a shared central office-based switching platform and shared GigE backbone.
