This course is intended to
provide an in-depth and practical understanding of modern
computer networks that constitute the Internet.
The scope includes network architecture,
component technologies (both hardware and protocols) and
specific systems. Emphasis will be on
network protocols and related software implementation. The
course includes a hands-on "clean-slate" network
prototyping project involving specification,
standardization and software implementation.
