Protocols and Networks architectures

Denis LUBINEAU ( )

Objectives

The need for communication between subsystems is a key issue in modern large-scale plants. This topic starts with the fundamental of networks topology, architecture design and communication. The students then become familiar with the network layers and IP technology, and, at the user level, implement interconnected networks, dynamic routing and programmable sockets.
