Course Description:

Objectives of the Course:

• demonstrate and analyze the basic computer networking technologies and the required infrastructure which comprises the key steps involved in the communication process
• establish a solid knowledge of the layered approach that makes design, implementation and operation of extensive networks possible. Discuss and explain thoroughly the 7-layer OSI network model (each layer and its responsibilities) and identify as well as realize the definitions explored in the TCP/IP suite of protocols and the networked applications supported by it
• thoroughly discuss and acquire the knowledge of the basic protocols involved in wired/wireless communication process. These include the characteristics of the
required infrastructure for Local Area Networks (MAC-CSMA-CD/Ethernet, Token Ring, FDDI, and others), and for Wide Area Networks using the TCP/IP, UDP/IP
• determine, apply and demonstrate as well as compare different illustrated network performance concepts and traffic aspects for Quality of Service (QoS) in broadband communication
• demonstrate and analyze as well as critically compare and evaluate the basic design principles of wired and wireless communication networks. Moreover to demonstrate and critically compare the way to model and the way to compare the structural performance for some commonly used network architectures

Learning Outcomes:

• provide a good realization and clear identification of the physical and logical as well as the electrical characteristics of digital signals and the basic methods of data transmission
• acknowledge the importance of the ISO 7-layer reference model
• critically assess the concepts and requirements hosted in communication protocols and provide an overview of Data Communication Standards
• figure the area of computer networks in terms of connectivity, mobility and the role of metrics, with emphasis on the range of communication protocols utilized
• acquire the knowledge of the basic protocols involved in wired/wireless communication process. Local Area Networks (MAC-CSMA-CD/Ethernet, Token Ring, FDDI, and others), and for Wide Area Networks using the TCP/IP, UDP/IP
• conceptual development of the basic design principles in wired and wireless communication networks.
• analyze the structural performance for some commonly used network architectures/ identify the functions and architectures of LAN and WAN/ analyze and design LAN architecture and the design and deploymentrequirements
• demonstrate and analyze the electrical interface and the basics of digital data transmission
• demonstrate and critically assess the need for data communication standards and the underlying technology used in wired and wireless communicationmodels
• analyze as well as critically compare a broad knowledge of the protocols used in various types of computer networks
• critically compare and evaluate and identify the principles of Open Systems and the Transport/Application protocols, which facilitate them
• identify the utilized fundamentals and technologies of physical, data-link and network layers.
• to link different network performance concepts and traffic issues for Quality of Service (QoS) in broadband communication
• research in state-of-the art areas in data and network communication systems
