Semestr: Winter

Range: 14+4c


Credits: 4

Programme type: Undefined

Study form: Parttime

Course language:


The subject is primarily aimed to advanced technologies used in current Internet (IPv6, support for QoS), on protocols that respect real-time requirements and are able to support multimedia and VoIP communication, assuring effectiveness and scalability at the same time. Students will additionally get some basic knowledge and experience in computer network management.


Course syllabus:

1. Computer network management. ISO CMIS-CMIT and IETF SNMP systems
2. SNMP architecture - MIB (Management Information Base), protocols
3. Remote monitoring - RMON, traffic measures
4. Routing in the current Internet - RIP, OSPF and BGP protocols
5. IP routing in ATM networks: LANE, IP Switching, NHRP, MPOA
6. Addressing and routing in IPv6 networks
7. Encryption and authentication in IPv4 and IPv6 networks
8. Voice and multimedia data transfer - VoIP
9. Quality of service (QoS) parameters, RTP protocol
10. Flow control - hop-by-hop and end-to-end techniques
11. Traffic management - service classes
12. Multicasting - IGMP, DVMRP, MOSPF and PIM protocols
13. Data flow reservation - RSVP protocol, Integrated services
14. Data flow aggregation - Differentiated services, MPLS (Multi-Protocols Label Switching)
