24 hours (Schedule see http://www.ida.liu.se/cugs/CourseSchedule).
Graduate students in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or computer science
The course was last given
The course focuses on techniques and issues associated with contemporary
networks, that is, advanced network architectures, mobile and wireless
networks, and multimedia information and networking. Important keywords:
traffic analysis, simulation, routing, quality of service.
The course goal is to provide the course participants with sufficient knowledge of theory and tools in order to do a project involving the analysis, simulation and reporting of a research-relevant networking issue.
The participants will be provided with the opportunity to develop skills necessary to conduct academic research in the field of computer networks.
Basic course in computer networks, such as TDTS41 Computer Networks.
Wireless networks (implying mobility)
- ad hoc networking techniques
- MAC protocols: CSMA, MACAW
- cellular/radio: GSM/GPRS, UMTS/WCDMA, WAP, mobile IP
- home networks: infrared, Bluetooth
Location management and context awareness
Traffic and load analysis; network performance and simulation
Routing protocols: BGP, IGP, RIP, etc.
Mobile IP and IPv6x
Multimedia networking, QoSx
Reserve (backup) topics: - Network management: SNMP, MIB, etc.
Security: firewalls, IPsecx, access methods, evaluation methods
Network architectures: internet exchange points, DMZ nets (de-militarized zone networks and relation to political routing)
The course is given in an intensive format ("crash course") at a conference
The course consists of lectures, seminar presentations, reading assignments and laborations.

Research papers about Wireless Media
The course is a "crash course," with obligatory attendance at both meetings at
a conference site.
In addition to attendance, the course participants will do an project assignment and write a short paper.
The course is an intensive course consisting of 2-3 day sessions (usually 2-3 sessions) at the study centre/university. The course has no admission fee, but course participants (or the groups they belong to) pay for travel and any food and accomodation. (For students registered with CUGS, the research school will pay for food and accomodation.) More information about this is available at <http://www.ida.liu.se/cugs/>
