IT 531 - Advanced Computer Networks

This course assumes an exposure to basic knowledge of networking concepts and background, such as basics of Internet protocols, various link-layer and framing concepts etc. However, an in-depth review of undergraduate level networks material will be done in this course.

This course will emphasize the concepts and issues underlying the design and implementation of the Internet. We will also spend time learning to quantitatively analyze the performance of network protocols. A combination of reference books and a set of research papers will be used to cover the fundamentals, seminal findings and new directions in networking research.
