Reference Entry
A definition of the term "Simple and Efficient Adaptation Layer (AAL)" in networking and telecommunication is presented. It refers to a scheme used by the Asynchronous Transfer Mode AAL5 in which the Segmentation and Reassembly sublayer segments Convergence Sublayer-Protocol Data Unit without adding additional fields.
