INTERNETWORKING

CSE3INW

2016

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students will build on foundation studies in Computer Networks to examine "real world" issues in large-scale networking. Students will understand issues of scalability in the global Internet and multi-protocol contexts. Students will gain experience in configuring typical internetworking equipment. The content includes Internetwork model, layered protocols, TCP/IP architecture, interior and exterior routing protocols, and other advanced and emerging networking technologies.
