This is an advanced course in computer communication networks. The goal of the course is to provide a basic knowledge of the field of network management, understand the challenges of efficient network management, and the modern techniques On completion of the course, students will be able to: Understand the fundamentals of next generation computer networks; Design solutions for ad-hoc, mobile and pervasive computing ; Understand the principles of operation of network security monitoring; Understand the issues involved in deployment of Wireless LAN and 3G systems. The course will not use a single textbook but rather a set of research papers, and it will be a combination of lecture and discussion.
