CSCI /16/97 1 CSCI 3003 Issam Amin JW1.28 Department of Computer Science De Montfort University CSCI 3003 NETWORK ANALYSIS & DESIGN
CSCI /16/97 2 General Introduction Introduction –Aims, –Objectives and –Required Prior Knowledge Syllabus Assessment –Exam –Assignment(s) Reading list and –Extended Reading list Projects
CSCI /16/97 3 Module Aims To provide: an understanding of the design parameters which affect network performance and digital communications systems, an understanding of the problems of computer network design, the techniques which can be applied, the merits & limitation of these techniques.
CSCI /16/97 4 Module Objectives On completion students should be able to: discuss the trade-off implicit in network design and criteria by which its performance can be measured, analyse a proposed design against given criteria, specify a network configuration to meet a given requirement, explain the various parameters that effect performance, critically appraise various algorithms and techniques for measuring performance understand the basic principles of modelling and simulation.
CSCI /16/97 5 Important Prior Knowledge Students are assumed to be: familiar with basic concept in data communications and with the operation of the protocols at the communications subnet layer (year1 and 2 topics), competent in the symbol manipulation skills to operate on the models.
CSCI /16/97 6 Syllabus –Performance analysis of encoding & modulation techniques –Block and convolutional codes, TCM, Hamming codes, Compression and expansion techniques, Huffman codes –Coding for security, encryption algorithms e.g. DES –Performance analysis of stop-and-wait ARQ and sliding window ARQ – Link utilisation – Performance analysis of MAC layer protocols e.g. ALOHA, – CSMA/CD, TOKEN BUS & RING, FDDI, and DQDB. – Priority mechanisms of IEEE802.4, IEEE802.5 and IEEE802.6 – Performance analysis of high speed LANs and MANs – Routing and congestion control, routing algorithms and maximum flow algorithms for WANs
CSCI /16/97 7 Assessment Assessment is by: Exam –2 hours exam which represents 70% of the total assessment 4 or 5 questions, questions carry equal marks, you will be asked to answer 3 questions only. each question will be divided into 3-5 short questions. Coursework –written assignment which represents the other 30% of the total assessment (topics to be decided later). However, possible topics as follows: –simulation of priority mechanism (protocols) implementation of TCM (combined coding and modulation) simulation of maximum flow algorithm (routing)
