      The goal Introduce synchronization problems and solutions of different networking technologies.
      The outcome Students will learn to implement synchronization for different network technologies.
      Contents of lectures In this course, synchronization methods in the transport networks (SDH,SONET,OTN) will be studied. Also, loose synchronization methods of packet switching networks will be analzyed, for example NTP or PTP protocol.
      Contents of exercises Work on a project.
