This is the third course in a sequence of four that covers the field of telecommunications. Students will study the architecture, implementation and related protocols of the following technologies:
- Broadband Technologies: Current and Future IP networks, Backbones and Broadband Access, VoIP and Video Architectures and Transmission Technologies including Cable’s DOCSIS, FTTN, FTTP and Wireless.
- TCP/IP: IP protocols, TCP protocols, IP addressing and routing, supporting protocols and Network Security
- TCP/IP Applications: FTP, TELNET, SMTP, SNMP and the WWW
- Video: Digital Video and transmission including scanning, synchronizing, video compression, color, digital television, IPTV and Video on Demand are covered.
Goals and Objectives
· To evaluate design options for wide area networks as they pertain to modern broadband, triple-play access, transport and applications.
· To compare and contrast current communications protocols and methodologies.
· To develop skills necessary for further study (of a technical nature) in networking technologies such as voice over IP, Internet, and digital television.
· To develop a solid understanding of the TCP/IP protocol suite.
· To understand the principles of video transmission and digital television technology.
