After completion of this course, students:
- Understand the basic principles of layered network architectures, with application to the Internet.
- Understand the principles of application-level protocols (e.g., for the world-wide-web, mail, and multi-media streaming).
- Understand the basic principles of widely used Internet protocols, such as TCP, UDP and IP.
- Understand the basic principles of media access control and addressing at the data-link layer, for both wired and wireless networks.
- Understand basic techniques used in and challenges of the Internet-of-Things.
- Are aware of security and privacy considerations on the Internet.
Modern communication systems are centered around concepts developed over the last 50 years, primarily in the context of the internet. We address the basic principles of modern networks systems, thereby addressing specifically their concrete application on the internet. The course follows a top-down approach, in that, starting from the overall network architecture, principles of the well-known (and widely used) application protocols are discussed, before diving deeper into the network technology. Subsequently, the notion of end-to-end transport protocols, host-to-host network protocols and link-layer access protocols (both for wired and wireless networks) are addressed. Special attention will be given to recent developments in internet-of-things.|
