Digital transmission and communication networks

The most important learning outcomes are: - knowledge of the general concepts of communication networks: network topologies, switching techniques (circuit and packet), multiplexing and multiple access techniques, service models (client-server, peer-to-peer), layered protocol architectures, traffic characterization, QoS, error recovery - knowledge of Ethernet and Wi-Fi protocols - knowledge of network and transport protocols in the Internet: IP, TCP/UDP - knowledge of the routing in IP networks and of related services: NAT, DHCP. - knowledge of the support of multimedia networking - ability in evaluating the behavior and the performance of the adopted protocols - ability to design and plan an IP network - ability to configure an IP network in terms of addressing and routing

Modalità di esame: prova scritta;

Digital transmission and communication networks

The exam for the module Communication Network is written and "closed-book"; it lasts 70 minutes. It is based on three questions with open answers, covering all the topics covered in the class. One question will be devoted to evaluate the different abilities detailed above in the design and evaluation of communication networks, and two other questions to evaluate the expected knowledge detailed above on the network protocols adopted in the Internet. The grade for the written exam referred to the module Communication Network will be in the range [18-33]. The final grade will be the average of the two modules, i.e.: round(0.5*(grade(Communication network)+grade(Digital transmission))
