This course will give both practical and general knowledge concerning Voice over IP. The emphasis will be on the underlying protocols. After this course you should have some knowledge of these protocols: what they are, how they can be used, and how they can be extended. You should be able to read the current literature at the level of conference papers in this area
As with the Internetworking course you may not be able to understand all of the papers in journals, magazines, and conferences in this area - you should be able to read 90% or more of them and have good comprehension. In this area it is especially important that develop a habit of reading the journals, trade papers, etc. In addition, you should also be aware of both standardization activities, new products/services, and public policy in the area.
You should be able to write papers suitable for submission to Globecomm or other conferences and journals in the area. This course should prepare you for starting an exjobb in this area (for undergraduate students) or beginning a thesis or dissertation (for graduate students).
This course will focus on the protocols associated with Voice over IP. The course should give both practical and more general knowledge concerning these protocols. One of the major aims of the course is that student should be able to build upon these protocols to enable new services.
The course consists of 10 hours of lectures, and an assigned paper requiring roughly 50h of work by each student.
To get an "A" you need to write an outstanding or excellent paper.
To get a "B" you need to write a very good paper, i.e., it should be either a very good review or present a new idea.
To get a "C" you need to write a paper which shows that you understand the basic ideas underlying mobile and wireless networks and that you understand one (or more) particular aspects at the level of an average master's student in the subject area.
To get a "D" you need to demonstrate that you understand the basic ideas underlying mobile and wireless networks, however, your depth of knowledge is shallow in the topic of your paper.
If your paper has some errors (including incomplete references) the grade will be an "E".
If your paper has serious errors the grade will be an "F".
If your paper is close to passing, but not at the passing level, then you will be offered the opportunity for "komplettering", i.e., students whose written paper does not pass can submit a revised version of their paper (or a completely new paper) - which will be evaluated; similarly students whose oral presentation is unacceptable may be offered a second opportunity to give their oral presentation. If a student fails the second oral presentation, they must submit a new paper on a new topic in order to give an oral presentation on this new topic.
