Principles of data networks

 This MOOC, which will begin on 12th March 2015, offers students the opportunity to learn about the network technology that enables us to surf the web, communicate on social networks, watch films online, play games remotely, or simply to make phone calls.

Course objectives:

  • To understand the vocabulary, concepts and mechanisms that are common to all IT networks as well as the organization of a global network, the functioning of its components and the importance of standards and protocols.

By the end of the course students will be able to define and implement a routing plan, read frames received on a network and read network protocol norms and standards. For the second session of this course, the workload for students has been reduced through a restructuring of the tutorial classes and practical tasks.
