CS558 Sylabus & Progress

Course Information: CS558, Computer Network

The course assumes that students have had an undergraduate course in Computer Networking, such as CS455

In the undergraduate course on Networking (CS455), we (would) have studied the operations (various protocols) of computer networks, i.e., the HOW

In this graduate offering on Networking, we will study how to improve the operations of various computer protocols (ways to improve network performance include buffer management, scheduling and flow and congestion control) and some non-traditional network protocols, such as multicasting, peer-to-peer networking.
