Lärandemål

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, project work requiring 30, and student presentation requiring 20 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
