This unit covers network communication. It starts with an introduction to different communication technologies and structures of computer networks, including LAN, WAN and the Internet. Description of layers of software added to an operating system to support networking, including the TCP/IP protocol suite, is discussed in detail. Techniques for unicasting and multicasting programming in different platforms are also examined.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to
1. Describe and compare different types of network hardware;
2. Analyse the rolls of different layers of the network protocols, especially, the TCP/IP protocol suite;
3. Analyse the operations of main network components like network interface control, router, and firewall; and
4. Design and implement simple software packages for network communication in different platforms.
Up to 4 hours per week, 2L + 1T + 1L.
