Course Objectives and Outline Using the Internet as a vehicle, this course introduces the underlying concepts and principles of modern computer networks, with emphasis on protocols, architectures, and implementation issues. Students will first learn how to implement network applications (e.g., e-mail, ftp) using the existing network protocols and architectures. Students then study how/why these protocols and architectures work by using the layered organization of the Internet in a top-down fashion: Application, Transport, Network, Data Link and Physical layers. The course will also cover advance topics including quality-of-service (QoS), wireless networking. Grading Midterm: 20% (TBD, but before Drop Date Tuesday, March 25th) Quizzes&Att 10% (the lowest quiz grade will be dropped) Final Exam: 30% Tue, May 06, 07:30 am - 10:00 am Assignments: 40% (Programming prj. and problem solving !
