Information communication network, telecommunication network and the Internet, is one of the important social infrastructure. In this class, various kinds of network architecture and its elemental technology are introduced including communication protocols and network control technology. These topics give a grounding for designing and constructing new information communication network system.
Goal is understanding basic architecture of information communication network including layer structure and protocols, representative network control technology, and various kinds of practical communication network technology.
