Networking Technologies 1 ILV

Lector: Ing. Stefan Schmitzhofer, BSc, Bernhard Taufner, BSc, MSc, Joyce Flynt Visne, B.Mus., BSc, MSc

2SWS
5ECTS

Lecture contents

Networks are important foundations for communication and for computer science. Whether one is working at a hardware level with embedded systems, on a user interface with web applications, or at a level in between with middleware, the network is an integral part of the work, the system, and the product, and a good understanding of how a network works and of its protocols is important. In this course, students will explore the lowest layers of networks and learn how they work.
The course covers the following topics:
- Network protocols, models and layers (TCP/IP, OSI)
- Overview of L1
- Detailed insight into L2 tasks and functions
- Ethernet
- L2 switching, Spanning Tree Protocol, VLANs
- Physical and logical addressing
- ARP, IP, ICMP
- Configuration of switches, VLANs
- Observation of STP
- Protocol analysis at L2 and L3

Assessment methods

Final exam
Work done in teams; final exam

Teaching methods

Hands-on exercises with network devices, a protocol analyzer, simulations; Cisco Networking Academy online learning platform; lectures.

2SWS
5ECTS

Lecture contents

The main focus of this course is on internetworking. Building on the introduction to the lower network layers in "Networking Technologies 1," the emphasis here is on the middle layers (OSI L3-L4).
The course includes the following content:
- Continuation of IPv4; IPv6
- Connectivity without routing; routing fundamentals
- Static routing
- Distance-vector dynamic routing; RIP
- Link-state dynamic routing; OSPF
- OSI L4 (Transport Layer); TCP, UDP
- DHCP
- NAT
