Synopsis:

Students learn technologies of the modern Internet. links of the IP technology to the modern communication networks, mechanisms for multicasting and real-time communication, more efficient mechanisms of virtual channels, and the new IPv6 architecture. They will understand the issues of monitoring and management of large computer networks. They are introduced to the technologies of interconnection networks for HPC systems.

Study Objective:

The aim is to familiarize students with the principles, architectures, and technologies of modern communication and interconnection networks, computer network administration, and usage of important Internet applications. The module focusses on the issues of network design, optimal selection or setting of parameters for achieving maximum performance with respect to quantitative and qualitative requirements on data transfers. Attention is paid to the problems of real-time data transfers (multimedia communication, VoIP).
