In this course we will discuss more advanced computer networking topics, including network management, security, multimedia and Wireless networks. The objective of this course is to expose you to topics you will need to know in real life scenarios, that were not included in CPSC 317. Given the significant advances in the area in the last few years, this course will include topics that have been developed significantly recently, such as software-defined networks (SDNs), 4G/5G networks, and advances in multimedia streaming.
The course will be divided into 4 major themes:
- Network Security, Privacy and Anonymity
- Network Management and Software-Defined Networks
- Wireless, Mobile and Satellite Networks
