Synopsis

Students will gain an in depth knowledge and understanding of computer networks. The following networking 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) are covered. Students will investigate and solve a series of example problems of network analysis and design of increasing complexity.
