The course Fundamentals of Network Technologies is focused on principles of data networks. It describes functionality of the three bottom layers of the ISO/OSI network layer model. Students will learn the basics of the configuration of network devices with regards to routing, dynamic routing protocols and addressing in IPv4 including VLSM.

Study targets:

In this course students acquire basic knowledge of the principles of operation of LANs and WANs.

Course outlines:

1. Introduction. Review of basic terms. RM-OSI model.
2. Media access methods (random and deterministic), wireless networks.
3. Ethernet local area network, basic functions of switches in LAN networks.
4. Virtual LANs, double marking principle.
5. Redundancy on link layer in LANs (Spanning Tree Protocol - STP).
6. Link layer protocols in WANs (PPP, PPPoE).
7. Routing in IP networks, IPv4 addressing, functions of a router.
8. Bellman-Ford algorithm - RIP routing protocol.
9. Dijkstra algorithm - OSPF routing protocol.
10. Address translation and traffic filtering on network and transport layers.
11. Securing the access to the network equipment.
12. Technologies for geographically large data networks
13. Introduction to multicast routing
14. Introduction to inter-ISP routing

Exercises outline:

1. Introduction
2. Omnet++
3. Configuration a verification of the switched network with VLANs
4. Individual project
5. Implementation and verification of the SPT protocolu on the switch
6. Individual project
7. Implementation and verification of the static routing
8. Individual project
9. Implementation and verification of the dynamic routing - RIP, OSPF
10. Individual project
11. Configuration of the routed network with NAT/PAT
12. Test
13. Project presentation, assesment
