COURSE OBJECTIVE
The main objective of this course is to answer the basic question \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"how do computer networks and internets operate?\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" in the broadest sense. The course will provide a comprehensive, self-contained tour through all of networking from the lowest levels of data transmission and wiring to the highest levels of application software. At each level, we will see how the facilities and services provided by lower levels are used and extended in the next level. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will have an understanding of:
