The objective of this course is to provide a basic understanding of the technical and management aspects of business data communications and networking. The course has two major components. In the first major component, after introducing data communications, the main course material begins by covering the technical fundamentals of how networks work (e.g., TCP/IP). Next we will examine some commonly available network technologies and their capabilities (e.g., Ethernet, ATM). Finally, we will consider a number of important network management and security issues. The second major component of the course is a group project that investigates a real network. The group project is the practical component of the course.
