The goal of this course is to give a wide spectrum view of the technologies involved in Internet, and their evolution during the last decades. The new Internet trends expected at short, medium and long term will be also discussed in the course. The program of the course tackles the following main items: The Architectures of the Next Generation Internet, Core and Access Networks, Traffic Engineering, Traffic Monitoring and Analysis, and QoS Provisioning.

The methodology of this course will follow the criteria established by the Superior European Education Space (SEES), which objective is that the students “learn to learning”. The course will rely in two main tasks, namely one consisting of preparing questions and answers based on the specific content taught in the course, and the other on the realization of a Technical Report (group activity) that will be presented to the class at the end of the course. Besides of that, the attendance to the lectures and the participation in workshops will be promoted. The students will be also requested to set up a "blog" where to daily post a summary and an assessement of what they have learned in each lecture.
The evaluation and grading of the students following this course will be done according with the following rules:
1. Attendance to the lectures, and participation in the Workshops: 20% of the grade.
2. Technical Report (elaboration and presentation): 40% of the grade.
3. Instead of a final exam, the students will be required to elaborate four sets (one set per chapter) of 2 or 3 questions (and their answers) that could be appropriate for an exam of the course (i.e., not extremely easy or too difficult questions, but fitting with the level reached in the course): 40% of the grade.
