Week 3 – Discussion 2
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
ATM and Gigabit Ethernet
Describe the differences between asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) and Gigabit Ethernet. Determine which you think is the better choice for a high-speed network. Discuss your conclusions and support your position with citations from your research. Your initial response should be a minimum of 300 words in length.
Guided response: Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts. Has the post appropriately described ATM and Gigabit Ethernet? In what way do you agree or disagree with your classmates’ conclusions? Why? Your replies should be between 100 and 150 words in length and add depth and insight to the discussion. See the About Discussions link in the left-hand navigation pane of your classroom for more information.
