Supervisor:
Department of Telecommunications Engineering
Synopsis:

The course introduces students with the fundamentals of data communication networks. The course objective is to provide broader understanding of various communication protocols used in specific types of data networks based on the layered OSI model. The course also provides students with fundamental understanding of TCP/IP protocol family as it is used in the Internet era of networking, including practical experience with the data networks in laboratory.

Requirements:

no special knowledge requirement is necessary

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Introduction. Basic concepts, historical overview.

2. Methods of communication, layered models, networks topologies.

3. Application protocols - socket, web, telnet

4. Transport layer protocols (TCP and UDP).

5. Domain Name System - DNS.

6. E-mail - basic principles and protocols.

7. Structure of IP datagram and its functions, auxiliary protocols (ARP, RARP and ICMP).

8. Network addresses and their division into classes, address translation.

9. Routing protocols in data networks (RIP, OSPF and BGPv4).

10. Local data networks, virtual LANs (VLAN and STP).

11. Technology of Ethernet, version, access methods.

12. How to access to the Internet (xDSL, CATV, mobile, PPP).

13. Convergence of LAN and WAN (MPLS, VPN, PPP). Trends in data networks.

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Technocal introduction to the lab, health and safety, conditions for granting credits

2. The basics of configuration and control of Cisco routers

3. Lab: Wireshark, TCP UDP analysis

4. Lab: Domain Name System
