|Kurzbeschreibung||This course will discuss recent advances in networking, with a focus on the Internet, with topics ranging from the algorithmic design of applications like video streaming to the likely near-future of satellite-based networking.|
|Lernziel||The goals of the course are to build on basic undergraduate-level networking, and provide an understanding of the tradeoffs and existing technology in the design of large, complex networked systems, together with concrete experience of the challenges through a series of lab exercises.|
|Inhalt||The focus of the course is on principles, architectures, protocols, and applications used in modern networked systems. Example topics include:|
- How video streaming services like Netflix work, and research on improving their performance.
- How Web browsing could be made faster
- How the Internet's protocols are improving
- Exciting developments in satellite-based networking (ala SpaceX)
- The role of data centers in powering Internet services
A series of programming assignments will form a substantial part of the course grade.
|Skript||Lecture slides will be made available at the course Web site: https://ndal.ethz.ch/courses/fi.html|
|Literatur||No textbook is required, but there will be regularly assigned readings from research literature, liked to the course Web site: https://ndal.ethz.ch/courses/fi.html.|
