The course Fundamentals of Network Technologies is focused on principles of data networks. It describes functionality of the three bottom layers of the ISO/OSI network layer model. Students will learn the basics of the configuration of network devices with regards to routing, dynamic routing protocols and addressing in IPv4 including VLSM.


Requirement for the study of this course is the knowledge of the topics discussed in the course „Data Networks - AE0B32DAT“, which further extends. Course evaluation: 50% exam, 30% individual project, 20% laboratory exercises.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Introduction. Review of basic terms. RM-OSI model.

2. Media access methods (random and deterministic), wireless networks.

3. Ethernet local area network, basic functions of switches in LAN networks.

4. Virtual LANs, double marking principle.

5. Redundancy on link layer in LANs (Spanning Tree Protocol - STP).

6. Link layer protocols in WANs (PPP, PPPoE).

7. Routing in IP networks, IPv4 addressing, functions of a router.

8. Bellman-Ford algorithm - RIP routing protocol.

9. Dijkstra algorithm - OSPF routing protocol.

10. Address translation and traffic filtering on network and transport layers.

11. Securing the access to the network equipment.

12. Technologies for geographically large data networks

13. Introduction to multicast routing

14. Introduction to inter-ISP routing
