The goal Students will learn about theory fundamentals, techniques and design principles of the high availability communication networks. Practical training that will teach students to configure network devices for the fast recovery from the faults in the network.
The outcome Students will gain theory fundamentals knowledge, as well as the practical knowledge of high availability techniques used in communication networks. Students will learn to solve high availability network design problems. Students will be trained to configure network devices for the fast recovery from the faults in the network.
Contents
Contents of lectures Definition and survey of the availability aspects in the communication networks. High availability and system reliability concepts and theory. Techniques for increasing availability of network devices and communication networks. High availability network design. Survey and analysis of the high availability network design problems. High availability protocols and techniques. Geolocation redundancy.
Contents of exercises Practical exercises where students will learn to solve the high availability network design problems. Lab exercises where students will learn to configure network devices for the fast recovery from the faults in the network.
