Aims and objectives

This unit of study aims to give you an in-depth understanding of the architecture and design issues relating to modern high-speed broadband networks.

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Appraise the issues that affect IP Quality of Service (QoS), and assess standards for meeting QoS requirements (K3, K4, K6)
2. Reflect on the design and architecture of consumer access technologies with reference to Quality of Service issues (K3, K4, K6)
3. Analyse and design Overlay solutions to improve overall service quality (K3, K4, S2)
4. Appraise the impact of different classes of network traffic on network performance (K3, K4, K6)
5. Appraise the impact of various networking protocols on the network (K3, K4, K6)
6. Conduct experiments using simulation tools to analyse the performance of networked systems and subsystems, interpret results, formulate conclusions and generate written technical reports (K2, K3, S1, A2)
7. Conduct independent research in the area of network traffic and networking protocols (A4)
