IP Networking Protocols and Technologies

Date

9-13 November 2009

Length

5 Days

Course Overview

There has been a great advance in IP networking protocols and technologies in the recent years. This course introduces and explains in some depth the principles, protocols, technologies, services and standards used for Internet networking.

On successful completion of the module the students will have been introduced to various networking principles and technologies, will have understood principles of internetworking, addressing and routing, will have been exposed to quality of service, will have been exposed to LAN, wireless LAN, IP router and ATM technologies, will have been exposed to relatively recent developments in IP (multicast, integrated and differentiated services, MPLS, IPv6, IP network security) and finally they will have been introduced to upper layer protocols, including TCP in detail, presentation aspects and various applications (mail, WWW, directory and name services, VoIP and multimedia services).
