Advanced Networking and Future Internet

The course gives an overview of advanced networking technologies and concepts, which are nowadays used in addition to and/or on top of the Internet Protocol (IP). The course covers mechanisms to support and enhance IP routing, such as as queue management within routers, traffic engineering to avoid overload and to balance traffic within networks as well as advanced forwarding mechanisms for routers. The Future Internet is expected to carry cloud computing and (real-time) audio/video streaming applications to a large extent. Networking concepts such as Software-Defined Networking and Overlay/Peer-to-Peer Networks are emerging to support those applications. The lecture will also address disruptive networking paradigms such as Information-Centric Networking aiming to replace the current IP-based Internet.

Topics addressed by the lecture include

  • Overview + Introduction
  • Queue Management
  • Peer-to-Peer Networks
  • Traffic Engineering
  • Software Defined Networking
  • Data Center Networking
  • Multicast
  • Information-Centric Networking
  • Audio/Video Compression
  • Audio/Video Transport
  • Audio/Video Conferencing and Streaming
     
Learning Outcomes: 

On successful completion of the course you will be able to

  • understand, compare and evaluate advanced networking mechanisms in today's IP networks
  • identify requirements from emerging Internet applications such ss cloud computing and multimedia streaming on novel networking concepts and mechanisms
  • discuss and evaluate disruptive paradigms for the Future Internet
  • understand requirements for the Future Internet as well as approaches to address those.
