Information för forskarstuderande om när kursen ges

Foskarstuderande ska anmäla sig till EP3210 Advanced Performance Analysis of Communication Networks 9.0 credits, som delvis ges tilsammans med EP2210.


By the end of the course students will be able to construct tractable models of complex networking problems and attack performance problems with analytical methods or simulation. These abilities are necessary for everyone working on technical fields - to understand the capabilities of specific technologies and the success or failure of new trends.

Kursens huvudsakliga innehåll

The course consists of 24 hours of lectures, home assignments requiring roughly 20 and project work requiring 30 hours of work by each students.

The course addresses performance issues in current and future Internet architectures:

  • Multi-access communication: CSMA/CD - reservation techniques (token and polling) - packet radio networks (WLANs)
  • Routing in data networks: shortest path routing - optimal routing and topology design
  • Flow control (TCP)
  • Quality of service (QoS) in IP networks: requirements for multimedia transmission - network support: scheduling, shaping, forward error correction
  • Current research topics on network performance


För fristående kursstuderande: 120hp  samt engelska B eller motsvarande
