CSCI 280 - Computer Networks


Provides an introduction to the theory and practice of the design of computer and communications networks. The TCP/IP Model will be used as the framework with the course progressing through the physical, data link, network and transport layers. Analysis of network topologies and protocols, including performance analysis, is treated. Current network types including local-area and wide-area networks are introduced, as are evolving network topologies. Laboratory exercises include the design and implementation of projects such as simulation of the network/transport layer functions, routing, congestion control, an Ethernet controller, applications using TCP/IP or remote procedure calls. There may be extensive network programming assignments.
