networks Internet protocols link protocols addressing routing flow control software defined network multimedia networks Learning Objectives Students will learn fundamentals of computer networks main protocols and applications of the Internet design and analysis of networks and use of software tools for understanding workings of the Internet Writing socket programming to learn about protocols and applications and use simulation and emulation for performance evaluation Registration Restriction Open only to junior standing and above Crosslisted as CSCI 450 Technological Proficiency and Hardware Software Required Students are required to have basic familiarity of programming and elementary probability theory Required Readings and Supplementary Materials Required textbook Computer Networking A Top Down Approach by James Kurose and Keith Ross 7th Ed Pearson Publishers Supplementary materials are tutorial notes on Unix C C and Mininet user guides Description and Assessment of Assignments This course is based on established materials from a widely used textbook There will be weekly homeworks with problems on materials covered in class programming projects see below for examples network simulations on simulation platforms like OPNET and NS 3 and lab exercises in the discussion period Sample programming projects include Programming Assignment 1 Error Detection Algorithm In this Programming assignment students are required to implement an error detection mechanism discussed in class This scheme is used in the DLC MAC layers to detect any possible errors in the received frame Recommended language C C or Python Programming Assignment 2 The Dijkstra Least cost Path Algorithm In this assignment students are asked to write a Program that computes the shortest spanning tree between a given node the root and every other node in the network Recommended language C C or Python Term Programming Project Network Socket Programming The objective of this assignment is to familiarize students with UNIX socket programming The Project consists of 3 parts The first part involves creating a server in C C or Python The second part requires the creation of a UDP client communicating with a server using Datagram sockets and a TCP client communicating with a server using Stream sockets and the third part will be to create a multi threaded proxy web server capable of supporting multiple requests at the same time Grading Breakdown Assignment Submission Policy Assignments are assigned weekly and due in class the following week Programming projects and mininet
