Course Overview

In this course we will illustrate communication concepts, terminology and technologies. Learn about Wired, Wireless, Power line and other methods of communications. Find out what telecommunication technologies exist for network connectivity. Discover voice over IP (VOIP), and why it is important. You’ll also learn about remote management and set up a remote support to manage a computer system across the Internet. Other topics include:
• telecommunications services available for networking
• difference between Wireless, Wired and Power line
• number systems
• communication interfaces
• Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB
• internet connections through serial, ADSL and Cable modems

One goal is to give some insight into the rationale of why networks are structured the way they are today and to understand the issues facing the designers of next-generation data networks. Much of the course focuses on network algorithms and their performance. Students are expected to have a strong mathematical background and an understanding of probability theory. Topics discussed include: layered network architecture, Link Layer protocols, high-speed packet switching, queueing theory, Local Area Networks, and Wide Area Networking issues, including routing and flow control.
