VU Course CS206 Notes Introduction To Network Design and Analysis

VU Course CS206 Notes/handouts pdf book – Introduction To Network Design and Analysis. These are my course notes for VU Course CS206. This course introduces concepts and techniques in network design and analysis, with an emphasis on Internet protocols and packet-switched networks.

Topics include performance evaluation, simulations, queueing theory, routing algorithms, finite state model analysis, random early detection (RED), class-based flow control, distributed coordination functions (DCF), resource reservation protocol (RSVP), link-layer protocols, and network security. These notes are my personal compilation of the course material; they do not substitute formal class notes or other course materials provided by the VU instructor or department.

Why do we need to study it? What is networking? History of networking. Why do we study networking in a university course? What are our ultimate goals by understanding networking? Before you learn how to build computer networks. You need to understand a few basic terms like node, link, and network topology. Similarly’ This lecture will give you a good overview of what network is all about. We will briefly discuss the history of computer networks to understand why we need to study computer networks in a university course. Here is a table of content and topic-wise lectures which are explained in these notes. For DBMS notes click here.
