CSC3413 Network Design and Analysis (FOSCI)
Units 1.0 (Networks and Communications) Band 2
Recommended Pre-requisite: CSC3407 or equivalent.
This course will provide the student with the following subjects: queueing theory; performance of communication networks including measurement, modelling and analysis of network performance including reliability, packet loss, throughput and delay, and security; network architecture including layering of networks; network design including dimensioning (deciding how fast/many of the links switches, routers and servers there should be), routing design (where traffic should go), topological design (where to put new links) and security (authentication, VLAN's, firewalls). In addition, students will tackle a series of example problems of network analysis and design of increasing complexity.
