The course Advanced Network Technologies extends practical knowledge in the field of data networks design. The course is practically orientated and focused on advanced configuration of switches and routers. The students will master advanced topics like IPv6, MPLS, TCP and BGP.


Prerequisities for this course is the basic knowledge of networking technologies.The students will be evaluated as 50% exam, 30% project and 20% of laboratory exercises.

Syllabus of lectures:

1.Introduction to the subject. Repetition of basic concepts

2.Protocol IPv6, addressing, routing, IPv6

3.Cooperation between IPv4 and IPv6

4.Detailed description of the transport protocols TCP and UDP

5.Adaptation of TCP protocol to different network environments

6.Function of border routing protocols like BGPv4

7.Influencing the distribution of data flows through BGPv4 - attributes, scales, AS path, local preferences

8.MPLS backbone network

9.Implementation of MPLS virtual private network

10.IP multicast. Resource-oriented multicast distribution tree, shared tree multicast

11.Dense multicast protocol, PIM - DM, PIM-SM

12.Data network nodes (routers and switches), search algorithms, TCAM table

13. Traffic classification, traffic shaping, multilayer switching, the method of sorting the output queues

14. Network managemen model, SNMP, ASN language for describing data in the MIB database

Syllabus of tutorials:
