High Speed Networking

Course #EC4710

Est.imated Completion Time: 3 months


The course systematically develops the traffic characteristics of DoD and commercial broadband services (video, voice, text, and other multimedia information) and determines the need for high-speed networks with emphasis on quality of service. Queuing theory is used in the design and analysis of the various modules of a high-speed network: traffic modeling, switches, admission control, scheduling, traffic monitoring, and congestion control. Emerging trends and technologies that enable deployment of high-speed global networks for tactical, commercial, and residential use are discussed. Topics include queuing theory, traffic models, traffic management, and broadband technologies, such as ATM, Gigabit Ethernet, DSL, and cable access. Laboratory is concerned with the use of OPNET for simulation studies of various network topologies.
