NETWORK ARCHITECTURES AND PERFORMANCE ENGINEERING
EE-384S / MS&E-334 - Spring 2014
This is a MS/PhD level course on high-performance engineering of computer network architectures. The course introduces important core methodologies for modeling and optimization of modern computer networks, and applies them to key design problems related to high-performance network engineering.
The introduced network performance modeling, analysis, evaluation methodologies include:
Sample applications of the above methodologies to network engineering design include:
We study selected key network design issues from the previous list, applying the aforementioned methodologies, stressing engineering intuition and developing modeling skills.
Reading material includes lecture notes and slides, book
chapters, and research papers from major networking conference proceedings and
archival research journals.
The homework and class project aim to develop the network modeling intuition of the student and apply it on important network design problems in a systematic way.
