Aims
After following this course students should be able to:
  1. understand basic principles in communication systems, networks, and networked applications
  2. describe and understand key protocols underlying the operation of the Internet
  3. make simple quantitative models of network systems, and use them to evaluate these systems
  4. analyze the behavior of common networking systems using network monitoring tools
  5. design and implement basic networking protocols and applications
  6. work with systems of linear equations, vectors, matrices, linear transformations and explain the connections between these concepts
  7. work with subspaces of Rn and determinants and connect them with the previous concepts
  8. write a solid line of argument, based on a clear question and understand the basic principles of effective presentations.
Content
The module Network Systems focuses on computer networking for open infrastructures, such as the Internet and GSM/UMTS, as well as embedded networks, such as sensor, in-car and home-automation networks. Such networks are typically designed using a layered architecture of protocols. This course covers all layers of this architecture: physical layer (e.g., Shannon limit, error correction, propagation), link layer (e.g., medium access control, retransmission schemes, switching), network layer (e.g., routing, addressing, router architecture), transport (e.g., congestion control, flow control), and application layer (email, web, peer2peer). It covers both basic principles of communication systems, networks, and networked applications, as well as the operation of key protocols underlying the operation of the Internet (e.g. Ethernet, IP, TCP, DNS). Furthermore, the course treats security aspects, some basic performance models, and network monitoring tools.

For information about the mathematics part of the module (including instruction forms, grading, course material, etc., please see the relevant Canvas page (you have to be logged in and enrolled).

Assessment:
Average of math and the 3 written tests must  be at least 5.5; each of math and the 3 written tests must be at least 5.0; only one of math and the 3 written tests is allowed to be below 5.5.
