Goals and requirements for networks, management Models, OSI-7 layers, shared media, direct line; resources (reservation, usage, efficiency), timing (synchronous, asynchronous).

(L1) Physical channels: Cu, LWL, Radio, PoE

(L2) Switches: Functioning and internal structure, protocols, priority queuing, parameters, network topologies (Spanning Tree)

(L3) Router: IP, DNS, ARP, static/dynamic Routing; authentification, 802.1x; masquarading: NAT, PAT

(L4) Connection-oriented / Connection-less Protocols

Network management

Application examples: SNMP, Web, Mail, VoIP, BlueTooth, RFID / NFC, KNX

Teaching methods

Groups of 3 people are formed. Each group works on a sub-topic from the topic of data networks. This is to present and to prepare a written elaboration.

After each presentation, content and presentation style and manner will be discussed.
