Before choosing courseFEP3323 Advanced Course in Network Management 8.0 creditsAdministrate About course

The course provides a modern introduction into network and systems management. Topics traditionally taught in network management courses, e.g., standards for management protocols, data models, and architectures, will be given less space. Emphasis is put on new approaches, such as, decentralized management, policy-based management and the management of new and emerging technologies. The course is an extension of EP2300 and includes an additional project part, focussing either on more complex functionality or more in-depth evaluation. This part can be related to the student’s PhD research.
