Course description

The course Communication Networks II covers the principles and practice of computer networking and telecommunications with emphasis on the Internet. Starting with the history, the course discusses past, current and future aspects of communication networks. In addition to the basics including well known protocols and technologies, recent developments in the area of multimedia communication (e.g., Video Streaming, P2P, IP-Telephony, Cloud Computing and Service-oriented Architectures) will be examined thoroughly. The course is designed as follow-up to Communication Networks I.
