Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the subject is extend students' knowledge of computer network basics, so that they will be able to design switched LANs and optimize routing in WANs. Students will understand methods how to implement multicast support and QoS mechanisms int computer networks.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs
Project work


The subject explains design principles and protocols of routed and switched networks. Students will be able to implement unicast and multicast routing protocols in WANs, optimize paths and choose mechanisms for QoS and traffic shaping. They will extend their knowledge of switched and virtual networks and will be able to design rapid-convergence switched networks. Students will also understand basic mechanisms of IP-networks attacks and methods for their detection and avoidance. Laboratory seminars will provide hands-on experience on discussed topics.
