Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:15 - 10:30 AM in SCOB 101 for the traditional classroom format. COURSE DESCRIPTION Have you ever wondered how the Internet really works? How is e-mail delivered and how are web pages downloaded? If so then this course may be for you. In this course we will take a careful look "under the hood" of the Internet. We will study the protocols and mechanisms that make the Internet work and will learn about the performance bottlenecks in the Internet. The topics covered in the course include: - Internet structure and design philosophy - Application layer protocols: HTTP, SMPT, FTP, SMTP - Transport layer mechanisms and protocols: reliable data transfer, congestion control, TCP, UDP 1
