Learning objectives:
  The aim is to understand the basic concepts and principles of computer communications and computer networks; to be aware of communication functions and their implementations in common computer networks.
Description:
  Internet concept and model of the Internet. Model ISO/OSI. TCP, UDP, IP protocols. Addressing in computer networks (local and Internet). Routing on the Internet. Multicasting on the Internet. Switching and switches. Principles of reliable data transfer. Network interconnections. Multiple access. Error control. Communication services and protocols. Wireless and mobile networks and protocols. Network security. Programming network applications.
Knowledge and skills required for the course:
  Ability to write a computer program and working knowledge C/C++ programming language. Knowledge of operating systems.
Learning outcomes and competencies:
  Student acquaints basic concepts and principles of computer communications and computer networks and will be aware of communication functions and their implementations in common computer networks. The student will learn how to deal with documents which describe the specification of communication protocols. The student will learn how to implement networking applications.
Why is the course taught:
  We use the Internet for a variety of activities in everyday life. Life without it is hard to imagine for many people. In this course, you will learn on what technical principles the Internet is built on and what key technologies are necessary for its functioning.
