Read, synthesise and present scientific papers within the area
Describe, reason about, and suggest designs for networks
Use modelling and simulation to analyse networks
The course contains of a theoretical and a practical part.
Theoretical part of the course centres around a set of scientific articles within the area of computer networking. Topics might change slightly from one year to another to meet the ongoing trends within the area. The following topics are, however, always included; protocol design, network programming, network simulation and analysis, Internet history and future architectures, and wireless networking Other topics might include, but is not limited to traffic modelling, delay-tolerant networks, anonymity in the Internet, quality of Service, and distributed testbeds Practical part consists of labs covering network programming as well as network analysis, simulation or modelling
The theoretical part of the course consists of lectures and discussion seminars. The practical part of the course consists of a number of hand-in assignments.
For the theoretical part, comprising 8.5 credits, the examination consists of:
written reviews of scientific texts or other material included in the course
active participation in group work and seminars.
The actual design will be presented at the start of the course.
For the practical part, comprising 1.5 credits, the examination consists of one or more written reports, possibly augmented with demonstrations.
The course can not be part of graduation together with Wireless communication and networked embedded systems (1DT077)
