Subject Advanced Network Technologies extends student knowledge in an area of modern network technologies. The course strives to deepen student's knowledge in more advanced technical features of contemporary networking protocols in data networks. Students will get hands-on experience with topics like Internet unicast routing, multicast routing, IPv6 and design of MPLS networks using various network simulation tools.


The subject expects students already acquired essential basic knowledge in the area of computer science and particularly networks. If students do not have this knowledge, they are required to fill this gap on their own. The final score will be a composite of two subscores as follows. First subscore will be from the individual project, where students can reach max 40 points. Second subscore will be from a final on-line exam, where students can reach max 60 points.

Syllabus of lectures:

1.Introduction and review of basic networking concepts.

2.Review of basic routing principles, OSPF routing protocol.

3.OSPF routing protocol implementation and configuration. Redistribution of routing information

4.Software defined networks (SDN) data networking. Network Function Virtualization (NFV).

5.Application space, transport protocols and their usage, sockets.

6.TCP and its functions, principles of congestion control in the network, AIMD, TCP congestion avoidance

7.Internet as inter-ISP network . Interconnection ISPs - transit, peering, IXP. Understanding the function of the border routing protocol (BGPv4).

8.Affecting distribution of ISP input/output data streams using BGPv4 - attributes, weight, AS path, local preference.

9.IP multicast. Source-oriented multicast distribution tree. Shared multicast tree.

10.Protocol Independent Multicast, sparse and dense mode (PIM-SM, DM)

11.MPLS network and its comparison with conventional IP routed ones.

12.MPLS label distribution protocol and its deployment in MPLS networks.

13.MPLS services. Architecture of MPLS VPN network.

14.IPv6 addressing, IPv6 routing. Cooperation between IPv4 and IPv6.

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Multiple-Area OSPF with Stub Areas and Authentication

2. Implementing OSPF Virtual Links and Area Summarization

3. Implemeting Redistribution Between RIP and OSPF

4. Implementing BGP with Default Routing

5. Using the AS_PATH Attribute

6. Imlementing IBGP and EBGP Sessions, Local Preference and MED

7. Implementing BGP Route Reflectors and Route Filters

8. Implementing IGMP and IGMP Snooping

9. Routing IP Multicast with PIM Dense Mode

10.Routing IP Multicast with PIM Sparse Mode

11.Routing IP Multicast with PIM Sparse-Dense Mode

12.Implementing manual IPv6 Tunnels

13.Imlementing 6to4 Tunnels

14.Implementing Frame Mode MPLS

Study Objective:

The objective of the study is to familiarize students with additional issues in the field of data networks that go beyond the basic knowledge already acquired in other network-oriented subjects. The course composition provides students with a much larger hands-on time/space for detailed individual exploration of focused problems in data networks.
