Office hours

Tuesday at 12:00; DIET department 1° floor, office n°109, Eudessonia street (by appointment)

Prerequisite

Basic understanding of TCP/IP networking;

Concepts of data communications and transmissions;

Course Object

It presents the basic concepts, protocols & architectures of the current network infrastructures. Specific attention is given to the broadband access, the optical backbone and the wireless networking. Furthermore, main technologies leading to the QoS support in a network infrastructure are described. The technologies and network infrastructures presented in the course are: xDSL, PON, LTE, ATM, SDH, OTN, SDN. Practical lessons will be dedicated to the configuration of a IP based network infrastructure by using the Netkit tool.

Final Exam

There are two ways to do the exam.

CASE A: two steps; 1) The preparation of a written document describing the results of a project (done during the semester in a group and individually presented to the class); 2) Written open questions on the whole program.

CASE B: two steps; 1) An exam done by collecting 3 written homeworks (done during the semester) on Netkit; 2) Written open questions on the whole program;

In both cases part 1) is done during the semester and part 2) in the sessions of January/February.

In all the other exam sessions the student should 1) do the Netkit as a written exam; 2) answer to two written open questions on the whole program.
