Synopsis:

Subject is devoted to principles and technologies of Computer Networks. Physical layer media, analog and digital modulations, network topologies, MAC methods, ARQ algorithms, data communication models, coding and cryptography basics are introduced. Widely used LAN technologies are then presented together with their features. Internet protocols are explained and internetworking approaches are presented.
