Unformatted text preview: CNT 6107 Advanced Computer Networks, Spring 2012 Prerequisites: Basic probability theory, general networking knowledge (i.e., CNT 4007 and CNT 5106) and operating systems (COP 4600). Goals: This course is designed to cover several design issues in the emerging networks. The types of emerging networks that we intend to cover include: Wireless Networks, Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), Fibre Channel, Gigabit Ethernet, and future optical networks. New ap- plications which can primarily benefit from these emerging networks will also be covered. Then we will focus the discussions on protocol design, routing, flow and congestion control in MAC-, Network- and Transport-layer for these emerging networks. Textbook: (i) Computer Networks by A. Tanenbaum, Latest Edition, Prentice Hall. (ii) A collection of manuscripts and research papers will be also made available to students. Regular lecture attendance is required: . We will randomly choose 10 lectures to check your attendance. Each attendance check accounts for 1% of your final grade.your attendance....
