As the field of computer networking has evolved, so too has the use of these networks. Modern networks must be capable of performing more than simple data transfer. To be of value, a network must be able to handle the convergence of different types of traffic: voice, video, and data; and the Quality of Service requirements associated with each type. This thesis performs a detailed analysis of the different types of traffic, the two primary transmission media, fiber optical and copper based connections, and the connection-orientation technology to route the traffic. Presented in this thesis is a fiber-based hybrid network consisting of Asynchronous Transfer Mode at the backbone layer and Frame Relay and Passive Optical Networking at the local access layer. The proposed Universal Traffic Network, based on present-day technology, is a viable solution to the challenge imposed by the convergence of different traffic types.
