KurzbeschreibungAt the end of this course, you will understand the fundamental concepts behind communication networks and the Internet. Specifically, you will be able to:

- understand how the Internet works;
- build and operate Internet-like infrastructures;
- identify the right set of metrics to evaluate the performance of a network and propose ways to improve it.
LernzielAt the end of the course, the students will understand the fundamental concepts of communication networks and Internet-based communications. Specifically, students will be able to:

- understand how the Internet works;
- build and operate Internet-like network infrastructures;
- identify the right set of metrics to evaluate the performance or the adequacy of a network and propose ways to improve it (if any).

The course will introduce the relevant mechanisms used in today's networks both from an abstract perspective but also from a practical one by presenting many real-world examples and through multiple hands-on projects.

LiteraturMost of course follows the textbook "Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach (6th Edition)" by Kurose and Ross.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesNo prior networking background is needed. The course will include some programming assignments (in Python) for which the material covered in Technische Informatik 1 (227-0013-00L) will be useful.

RepetitionDie Leistungskontrolle wird in jeder Session angeboten. Die Repetition ist ohne erneute Belegung der Lerneinheit möglich.
Prüfungsmodusschriftlich 150 Minuten
Zusatzinformation zum Prüfungsmodus70% of the final grade will be based on the final (written) exam, while the remaining 30% will be based on continuous performance assessments. The continuous performance assessments will consist in two graded group projects. The first one (centered on 'Internet routing') will take place around the middle of the semester. The second one (centered on 'reliable transport') will take place towards the end of the semester. The first project will count for 20% of the final grade, while the second will count for 10% of the final grade. If a student does not submit a project or does not contribute to the group work, he/she will receive a grade of 1.0 for the corresponding project. Students repeating the course can decide at the beginning of the semester if they want to keep the previous grades of their continuous performance assessments.
Hilfsmittel schriftlichAll written material (books, notes, lab exercises etc.) is allowed; all electronic devices are prohibited, except for (non-connected) calculators.
