Network Architecture and Services
CB1 - Students have demonstrated to possess and to understand knowledge in an area of study that starts from the base of the general secondary education, and is usually found to a level that, although it relies on advanced textbooks, also includes some aspects which involve knowledge from the vanguard of their field of study
CB3 - Students have the ability to gather and interpret relevant data (usually within their area of study) to make judgments that include a reflection on relevant social, scientific or ethical issues
CB5 - Students have developed the learning skills necessary to undertake further studies
with a high degree of autonomy

This course describes network technologies from the point of view of a complete communications system. This will describe the basic architectures, the fundamental metrics of operation as well as the concept of switching and the role that protocols play in order to guarantee end-to-end communications. LAN will be described as a basic element for the construction of networks, both wired and wireless. The problem of medium access and collisions is studied, analyzing the alternatives to be able to solve them. The need for routing in networks is identified and describes the basic techniques to carry it out, ending with the topic of reliable transport of information in such networks.
Topic 1: Introduction
Topic 2: Switching architectures and protocols
Topic 3: LANs
Topic 4: Medium Access Control
Topic 5: Network Level and Routing
Topic 6: Reliable transportation
Lab practice will be delivered in the TLM lab
