"You're caught up in the Internet
You think it's such a great asset
But you're wrong, wrong, wrong.
All that fiber-optic gear
Still cannot take away the fear
Like an Island song."

Course Info

This course deals with the principles and issues underlying the provision of wide area connectivity through the interconnection of autonomous networks. Emphasis will be placed on Internet architecture and protocols as they are today and as they are likely to evolve in the future.

While we will cover some basic "textbook" topics, the course will be primarily based on paper readings.

This course is an advanced graduate course and you will be expected to do a significant amount of readings on your own.


We will not follow any particular text but these should give you some good background material.
