Arquitectura e Protocolos de Redes de Computadores
Description of the course
This is a second course on computer networks, for advanced under-graduated or graduated students, allowing them to gain a deeper comprehension of this subject. It assumes that the student was already exposed to an introduction to networking with practice on network programming interfaces. The course also takes an hands-on approach with laboratory and project activity. During the second half of the course, students are introduced to some emergent topics like SDN and data centre networking.
