DD2494 Routing on the Internet and Other Packet Switched Networks 9.0 credits
Routing på Internet och andra paketväxlade nät
This course is dormant.
Educational levelSecond cycle
Academic level (A-D)
Subject areaComputer Science and Engineering
Grade scaleA, B, C, D, E, FX, F
At present this course is not scheduled to be offered.
After the course, the student should be able to:
- describe how the global Internet works from a routing perspective
- describe routing algorithms, including Dijkstra and Bellman-Ford
- configure networks using a multitude of routing protocols, including RIP, OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, MPLS and PIM
- program low-level packet lookup and switching
- in detail explain how link-state and distance-vector routing protocols work and be able to assess their differences
- explain in detail how the BGP inter-domain routing protocol works, and in particular how it selects routes
- setup and configure several kinds of networks, including enterprise and operator networks
- explain how intra-domain and inter-domain routing interact, as well as how redistribution and aggregation of addresses works
- explain the network architecture for IP multicast and how IP multicast is distributed within a network
- describe and configure label-switching and traffic engineering (such as MPLS/RSVP) within a routing domain
- explain how the individual routing domains exchange traffic and how traffic is controlled between domains
- describe security issues with the current Internet architecture.
