RemarksThe maximum of student who can register for the course is 16
Application procedureYou apply via OSIRIS Student
Registration using OSIRISYes
After successful completion of the course “Advanced Networking” (ANET) you will be able to:
  • Analyze, compare, and discuss various advanced inter-networking concepts, such as secure inter-domain routing and multi-path data delivery.
  • Understand and discuss important challenges and proposed experimental solutions, including non-IP-based internetworking systems.
  • Apply a domain-specific language such as P4 to implement basic data plane functionality of an open programmable router.
ANET also enhances your research skills, because you will need to independently review, analyze, summarize, and present research papers.
  • Advanced concepts of IP-based internetworking
  • Experimental non-IP inter-networking systems such as SCION, NDN, and RINA
  • How both handle functions such as security, mobility, multi-path delivery
  • Programmable networks as an enabler to deploy new network functions
  • Research challenges and new communication paradigms
More information can be found here:
ANET is a highly interactive course in which you report on research papers on advanced networking concepts and engage in technical discussions with your peers during ANET lectures (“group-based learning”). The number of seats is therefore limited to 16 and you will need to attend all lectures in person at the University of Twente (remote participation will not be available).

Limited number of seats
You can only sign up for ANET through OSIRIS and we can admit a maximum of 16 students on a first-come-first-served basis (OSIRIS timestamps your registration). We’ll put you on a waiting list if more than 16 students sign up and let you know if a seat becomes available. To get on the mailing list, send an email to
