Theme Development "Internet Architecture and Addressing"
During this activity the student will learn the architecture of the Internet, the basic components that architecture, addressing the problems of the Internet and its impact on different elements.
During this activity students will learn the services provided by Internet service providers (ISPs) and aplications a brief introduction to multimedia and security. Examine network content and its role in the services provided by ISPs.
Theory: Explanation of the content of the topic "Applications and Services"
Autonomous learning: Study of Applications and Services item
Development of the "Intra-domain Routing" contents
During this activity students will learn the basic theories behind the routing protocols to link state, OSPF student as a representative of this class of protocols. Also learn the applications and their use in corporate networks and ISPs.
Theory: Development of the Intra-domain Routing issue
Autonomous learning: Study of Intra-domain Routing issue
In this activity the students will study BGPv4 as a representative of the routing between Autonomous Systems. Learn to design an ISP, relating to the external service routing. In addition, the work load balancing through multihoming techniques.
Theory: Development topic Inter-domain Routing
Autonomous learning: Study topic Inter-domain Routing
The course consists of lectures combined with exercises where students learn the theoretical foundations of the subject.
In addition, students must make an oral presentation, in teams of about 3 students, an issue will be proposed at the beginning of the course. Students should seek information on the topic and defend the chosen topic, presenting the relevant technological aspect, systems integration, adaptability and other aspects. The presentation must involve 3 the students of the group.
There will be 6 laboratories that complement the theory. These laboratories are generally solved in groups of 10/20 students depending on the practice. They will solve a modular network. Every 2 students design and program a part of the network so that in the end, all modules are to form a whole that works. Are encouraged to work on one side in teams of 2, to solve your module, and coordinate with the other modules to work on everything. Each of the 6 Labs, is an aspect of the topics covered in class. It is essential the understanding of the theory (works responsibilities) for the lab work.
At the end of the Lab, students do a mini-control 10-minute test that assesses the knowledge acquired during the Lab's. The average of teh mini controls represents 25% of the final mark of Lab
At the end of this course the student takes a final test that includes questions of all lab values and where global knowledge of a large network in all modules.
The course consists of lectures and laboratory. In the lectures it will be explained the concepts and issues. The student will have a collection of exercises to be solved in class.
The laboratory is an important part of the course. At the end of each session there will be a mini-exam or presentation.
The student must prepare a topic related to the theory and will defend it orally in public.
Grading of technical skills:
NF = 0,20 * NL + NF = 0.20 + 0.10 * C 0.10 + 0.60 * PO * EF
NF = Note the end of the course.
EF = final exam of theory.
C = Control Note in approx. week 10.
PO = oral presentation (in groups of 3 students).
NL = Final Laboratory mark. Will be calculated based on the average of the practices (25%) and grade the final exam laboratory (75%).
Grading of transversal skills:
NCT = 0.4 * PO + 0.3*Actividad_Lab + 0.3 * NL.
NCT= Transversal Skills mark
PO = oral presentation (the previous one).
Actividad_Lab= activity/participation of the student in the lab
NL = Final Lab mark.
To be normalized to A, B, C or D (where A corresponds to an excellent standard, B corresponds to a desired level, C corresponds to a sufficient level and D corresponds to a level not exceeded).
