Course description
Historically, landline (wireline) phone networks, mobile phone networks and IP (Internet Protocol) packet networks have developed as different networks respectively. All of them are recently integrated into IP networks with the emergence of VoIP service, all IP core network in LTE and packet mobile voice service such as VoLTE.
TCP/IP protocol stack forming IP networks was born in the 1970s as an experimental protocol of ARPANET. After that, the concept of layering that configures the functions of the protocol not to be dependent on its underlying physical networks, and the concept of KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) that makes networks scalable have succeeded.
 This course explains the design concept and enabling technologies of TCP/IP protocol stack. Further, the course explains traffic theory (Queuing theory), that is a representative theory used in line capacity design.
Purpose of class
Explanation of the design concept and enabling technologies of TCP/IP protocol stack.
Explanation of basics of traffic theory.
Goals and objectives
  1. Being able to understand the architecture of communication network protocol.
  2. Being able to understand the principle of the Internet.
  3. Being able to understand the concept of traffic theory,and being able to model a system using M/M/n queue and calculate call blocking probability, packet loss probability and queuing delay.
