PRESENTAZIONE

The course is aimed at providing the know-how to design and manage advanced interworking technology and investigate technological challenges, still object of research both industrial and academic, as well as QoS over Heterogeneous Networks, Software Defined Networking (SDN), and Delay Tolerant Networking (DTN).

OBIETTIVI E CONTENUTI

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI

• Definition of QoS, SLA (Service Level Agreement) and SLS (Service Level Specification). • Definition of heterogeneity. • QoS-oriented technologies: ATM, MPLS, IPv4, IPv6, user flow and traffic class identification • Integrated Services, Differentiated Services and DSCP Assignation, advantages and drawbacks, • Network control issues versus time: Traffic Identification, Traffic Shaping, introduction to Scheduling, CAC (Feasibility Region, Equivalent Bandwidth, Bandwidth Reservation), QoS Routing. • QoS over Heterogeneous Networks: concepts and problems, Horizontal and Vertical QoS Mapping, QoS Architectures, QoS Gateway, Relay Node and Relay Layer. • Software Defined Networking (SDN): introduction and aim, architecture, OpenFlow and Flow Table, conclusions and research activities • Delay Tolerant Networking (DTN): introduction and aim, architecture, Bundle Layer, CLA, conclusions and research activities

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI (DETTAGLIO) E RISULTATI DI APPRENDIMENTO

The lectures are aimed at providing theoretical and practical knowledge about modern architectures for telecommunications networks and about their control. The aim is to show different technological solutions and algorithms to control and design interworking elements within a network.

The lectures provide the necessary know-how to design and manage advanced interworking technology and investigate technological challenges, still object of research both industrial and academic, as well as quality of service provision over heterogeneous networks, satellite, space, and interplanetary networks.

Modalità didattiche

Lectures integrated by laboratory trials.
