EC4785 Internet Engineering

This course examines the optimal design and analysis of interconnected, heterogeneous computer networks, specifically those employed by the US Navy (e.g., IT-21). A common theme throughout will be the confluence of connection-oriented and connectionless data communications and their overarching networking methodologies. The course will focus primarily on the TCT/IP suite. Techniques for segmentation and reassembly, routing, transfer agent placement, error control, throughput analysis, broadcasting, and multicasting will be examined in detail. Performance of common distributed applications will be analyzed.
