Objectives Imparting basic network-concepts on the basis of the ISO-7 layer model, TCP/IP and Ethernet. Getting to know the important tasks in distributed systems.

Based on the understanding of the interrelationships and the cooperation of protocols in the protocol stack, students can estimate communication requirements and thus better employ and select protocols. The lecture also provides an understanding of the general basic concepts of protocols, This is important for the design of communication applications and the adaptation / conception of network protocols.

Subject General principles of protocols, TCP/IP- and ISO/OSI-7-layer model, structured cabling, data link layer incl. Ethernet and switching, network layer (routing, IPv4 and IPv6), TCP / MPTCP, NA(P)T and selected application layer protocols
Criteria for evaluation written exam (knowledge & understanding)
