Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
This course lays the foundation for networking principles and protocols applicable for cloud engineers. Starting with an introduction to layered architecture of data networks and introduces the concept of protocols and services of TCP/IP networks. It then progresses to provide details of operation of each layer of the protocol stack. These include detailed discussion on error detection, reliable data transfer, Local Area Networks (LANs), multiple access protocols, routing algorithms, flow control and congestion control mechanisms. Students will also learn 5G wireless data networks and protocols as it pertains to cloud access, including Internet of Things (IoT) protocols, Software Defined Networking, Network Function Virtualization concepts, IP Multicast and Mobile IP. As part of the course work, the students will learn how to capture and analyze real world network traffic.
