Nowadays, communication networks have become the essential infrastructure for our daily life.
The communication networks, such as the internet are realized by various component technologies.
This course focuses on the overview of the component technologies and background mathematical theories related to the networking.
1. General understanding of the communication networking, which is the essential knowledge for managing the local area network in the future carrier.
2. The understanding of the mathematical theories such as the queueing theory and the source coding theorem
Internet protocol, Networking theory, Communication theory, Source coding theorem, Cryptographic theory
