Where academic tradition
meets the exciting future

Protocol Processing (2018 Spring)

Organisation: UTU / Dept. of Future Technologies

Credit Points: 5

Responsible Person: Seppo Virtanen

Course code: DTEK8060

Learning outcomes:
After the course the participants will have developed an understanding of characteristic protocol processing functionality needed in protocols designed for environments with intermediate stations between source and destination devices. The participants will understand the critical importance of protocol processing system imple-mentations in data transportation intensive networks. Participants will have the protocol engineering understanding necessary in specifying protocols for given target applications. Case studies and project work focus on the internet core routing system.

Covered topics include protocol engineering and design, protocol processing system design and implementation for a given application, interdomain routing in the Internet and protocol processing in routers. In terms of protocols, the course focuses on IP and IPv6 and their affiliated interdomain routing protocols.
