      Condition Passed exams: Telecommunications 1 (OT2T1), Telecommunications 2 (OT3T2), Telecommunications 3 (OT3T3) and Telecommunication Networks (OT3TM).
      The goal Introduce students to protocol reference models and mechanisms, as well as principles of protocols specification, verification, implementation and testing.
      The outcome After passing the course students should gain knowledge of layered protocol architectures, protocol design (functional and formal specification, verification, implementation, testing) and protocol performance analysis.
      Contents of lectures (1) Basic concepts and layered reference models. (2) Data link layer. (3) Network layer – IP and routing protocols. (4) Transport layer. (5) Protocol specification, verification, implementation and testing. (6) Simulation of the TCP/IP stack protocols. (7) Application protocols. (8) Management protocols. (9) Signaling protocols.(10) Resource reservation and QoS signaling.
      Contents of exercises Exercises and term paper about the selected protocol, protocol family or protocol mechanisms with presentation of results (theoretical analysis, simulation or implementation).
