Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The course consists of a small project requiring ca. 20 hours of work. By the end of the course the student has to provide a demonstration tool designed to explain one given phenomena in the area of communication networks.

 The addressed topic has to be selected from the following fields:

  • 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

Intended learning outcomes *

The course gives the opportunity for the student to deepen his/her understanding in one specific area of communication network protocol design. By the end of the course the student will learn how to demonstrate with simple tools the results and limitations of a given mathematical model.
