This course explores the techniques for packet data communication using Internet technologies. It starts by understanding Ethernet local network standards and how this developed from a cable bus to a switched high-speed network. It then proceeds to describe the operation of the network and transport layers, using examples from Internet Engineering to explain how a packet switched network can provide services that can be used by applications. The course is accessible to students of computer science and electronic engineering.
