FEKT-MPC-PKTAcad. year: 2021/2022
The course is focused on these topics: Widening of the understanding of well-known network models, TCP/IP in particular. Network and transport layer, address translation. IPv6. Redundancy protocols. Autonomous systems, BGP protocol, peering, multihoming. Introduction the design of communication protocols.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students who have completed this course are able to:- demonstrate the differences between ISO/OSI and TCP/IP network models, explain the essence of these models,- analyze the task of network layer with IP protocol,- identify and interpret several levels of address translation used in IP networks,- explain the principle of protocols used for redundancy of access to default gateway,- explain the essence of multicast data transfer,- explain every aspect of IPv6 protocol and related issues,- assess the suitability of transport layer protocols for particular applications, - explain issues of autonomous systems existence,- apply multi-level routing with BGP protocol,- design and analyze own communication protocol.
