The course provides an understanding of the basic principles of broadband networks. It will introduce protocols suitable for broadband networks, with emphasis on atm. Other technologies, such as frame relay and smds, will be discussed. The course will also address important design issues for high speed networks including characterizations of (a) network traffic and its implications on network design, and (b) application performance objectives, traffic policing, and congestion control algorithms that can meet those diverse objectives.
