Course DescriptionIn this course, we will learn about computer networks, in general, and the Internet in particular. We will present the architecture and design principles. Today's computer networks are organized in “layers”, each with well-defined functionality and interface with other layers. We will discuss protocols used at the application (Ch.2), transport (Ch.3), network (Ch.4), link and MAC (Ch.5) layers. In some cases, we will also describe simple models used to analyze the performance. Time permitting, we may also cover selected topics on multimedia networking, mobile networks and network security (Ch. 6-9).
