Learn basic concepts of computer networking and acquire practical notions of protocol implementations.

The purpose of this lecture is to give you a sound understanding of computer networking, with a strong emphasis on TCP/IP and the Internet model. Both theoretical and practical knowledge should be acquired. Training classes parallel to the course will give you an opportunity of learning implementation details and you will acquire practical knowledge through networking labs.




This lecture will focus on the TCP/IP protocol stack. After an introductory presentation of the main concepts, we will study:

  • physical layer: data transmission;
  • data link layer: local area networks, error protection ;
  • network layer: IP and routing protocols;
  • transport layer: TCP, the socket API;
  • traffic control: flow control, congestion control.

Network lab:

  • Setting up a network;
  • LAN, VLAN, ARP, IPv6 ND ;
  • Interconnection, routing, RIP ;
  • TCP/UDP ;
  • NAT, firewall ;
  • Sockets programming.


Introduction to Networking


Regular session:

  • A 1h15 practical exam (TP) on the networking labs, one A4 sheet of personal notes allowed.
  • A 2h final exam (E) on the course, no documents allowed.

Catch-up session:

  • A 2h final exam (E) on the course, no documents allowed.

P1 pas de note, les examens se font uniquement en fin de P2 en fin de cours
P2=2/3E1+1/3TP (la note de TP ne se rattrape pas)
