BLG 508E - High Capacity Comput. Networks

Course Objectives

To provide an integrated view of the first three layers of computer networks.
• To teach the importance and the principles of (Virtual) Circuit Switching
• To show the effect of reliable data transfer on the performance of computer networks
• To teach basic medium access control protocols and techniques.
• To teach the principles of local area network protocols.
• To introduce protocols and techniques supporting quality of service.

Course Description

Widespread use of optical fiber to transmit data, new techniques employed in wireless networks have made
tremendous increase in network bandwidth possible. Moreover, increase in CPU power allowed us to
deploy faster devices (routers, switches,..) in networks. As a result, services containing digital audio and
video can be supported. All this transformation has caused new communication protocols to be developed.
This course focuses on these new communication protocols and techniques. Special attention will be paid to
the issues related to QoS. Classification of traffic, traffic management and shaping will be studied. Queue
management techniques, especially active queue management, will be examined. Switching, MPLS,
multicasting, WiMax and necessary protocols will be covered also. Last two-three weeks (depending on the
number of students taking the course) are reserved for the papers presented by the students.
