Advanced Networking

Description

This course covers advanced topics in computer networks, with a blend of theoretical and practical topics. On the theoretical side, the syllabus will cover mathematical foundations of networking, including discussions of queuing theory, control theory, information theory, and optimization. On the practical side, the syllabus will cover concepts and designs related to modern network architectures and technologies (e.g., data-center networks, software-defined networks), protocols (e.g., SPDY, HTTP/2, IPSec), and services (e.g., Zookeeper, DHTs). Students will gain hands-on experience with topics discussed in class through a series of exercises using network simulators and emulators.
