CS 118 – Computer Network Fundamentals Purpose and content of the course: In this course we study the way a Computer Communications Network such as the Internet works. Namely, we investigate the building blocks required to make the Network work correctly and efficiently and the applications that users can run on it. We study, evaluate and compare different “protocols” that are used to implement the building blocks and to support the applications. The course presents and reviews, in a “top- down” approach, the functions and protocols of the top four layers of the Internet protocol stack (i.e., application, transport, network, and MAC layers). Basic principles of multimedia protocol design and network security are also discussed.
