CSE 514 Computer Networks (3)
This course discusses the characteristics and low-level protocols of computer networks. It provides basic background, design, and evaluation skills in telecommunication and communication networks.
The course will cover International Standards Organization Open System Interconnection (ISO-OSI) reference model, design issues and protocols in the data link layer, network layer and transport layer; architectures and control algorithms of local-area networks, and point-to-point networks; standards in network access protocols; models of network interconnection; and overview of networking and communication software.
The course will emphasize on Internet standards such as TCP/IP and many advanced topics in networking. Students should already have some network background before taking this course. Students should also have necessary analytical and programming skills to do networking projects.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
