NETWORK ENGINEERING FUNDAMENTALS

CSE5NEF

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject we introduce the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. We also look at OSI and TCP/IP layer models to examine the nature and roles of protocols and services at the application, network, data link, and physical layers. The fundamentals of IP addressing and basic concepts of Ethernet will also be studied.
