CS 2520 WIDE AREA NETWORKS (TELCOM 2321)

Description

This course provides an understanding of the basic principles of broadband networks, an emerging technology that allows networks to run at much greater data rates and to carry diverse types of traffic in an integrated manner. It will introduce protocols suitable for broadband networks, with emphasis on asynchronous transfer mode (ATM). Other technologies, such as Frame Relay and Switched Multimegabit Data Services (SMDS), will be discussed. The course will also address important design issues for high speed networks, including characterizations of (a) network traffic and its implications on network design, and (b) application performance objectives, traffic policing, and congestion control algorithms that can meet those diverse objectives.
