General entry requirements, first cycle
will cover data communications (or network communications) concepts, network
installation, network configuration, network media, network topologies, network
management, network communicationsand related network security.
course the student will be able to:
This course covers
the basic concepts, standards, purpose and implementation of network
This course will include
an in-depth focus on network communications.
From a practical standpoint, the current state of the art is covered,
which will assist the students to analyze and design current network
scenarios will be covered and a methodology will be presented to help students perform
trends, from an academic and theoretical standpoint are covered, which will
help the students understand what new network communications functionality will
be coming out, in the future.
There is also
a short introduction, covering how to perform research, in order to find the
current state of the art network communications solutions and future
covered are the OSI model, TCP/IP model, IP addressing, IP routing, layer 2
switching, QoS, network tools: traceroute, arp, netstat, nslookup; firewall
design and firewall configuration, Kerberos, threats, security vulnerabilities,
vulnerability scanners such as NMAP; WAN, MPLS, SNMP, virtual networking, network
installation, network configuration, common protocols such as NAT, VLAN, DNS,

and associated properties.
course, students will work on individual tasks and group tasks.
For group work, students will collaborate with
each other using a variety of collaboration tools.
Course material will cover thefundamental concepts, standards,
importance, function and scope of network communications.
In order for students to design an appropriate
network communications solution, students will first need to perform some
research, in order to find the available security solutions.
Teaching on Internet for distance students or at campus for the students
living on campus. IT support: Learning management system (Fronter), e-mail and
Management System Fronter is used for delivering course material, information
and submissions. Knowledge is shared and created within the course through
virtual meetings with teachers and other students for discussions, supervision,
teamwork and seminars. For student on campus there will be meetings on campus.
