Course ID: 103B-CTxxx-ISA-ECONE, winter 2021/2022

Assessment rules

The end mark comes from the scores:
* from 0 to 20 points – for 1st test,
* from 0 to 20 points – for 2nd test,
* from 0 to 60 points – for the activity during 10 laboratory exercises (max. 6 points for every exercise).

There are 100 points to reach.

Attendance at laboratory meetings is compulsory! It is not possible to do a laboratory exercise another day than the scheduled. If you miss one, you lose points.

There will be an exam.
Everybody who reaches more than 90 points can classify ECONE without writing the exam.
One can reach from 0 to 50 points on the exam.
The final score is: exam_points + 0.5 * semester_points.
To classify ECONE: a student has to reach more than 50 points as the final score and at least 37 points from laboratory exercises.

Lecture

The lectures are on Tuesdays from 12:15 – 14:00 in room 168.

Summary:

The course aim is to make the student familiar with the usage and administration of computer networks.

The course aim is to make the student familiar with the usage and administration of computer networks. The lecture is an introduction to a domain that is very wide, and that quickly progresses. It discusses the 7-layer OSI ISO and TCP/IP network models. Students can learn the most important protocols belonging to TCP/IP, routing mechanisms. The lecture presents Ethernet networks. Students can learn the network configuration of hosts, switches and routers. They can also learn the basics of virtual local networks and virtual private networks.

There has been a change of dates.
