Local Area Networks pdf

Local Area Networks slides


Prof. Shie-Yuan Wang 

Course description:
Study the design, implementation, function, and performance of local area networks. Topics include: Internet protocol, medium access control, spanning-tree protocol, switching, scheduling, 802.11 wireless LAN, gigabit Ethernet, virtual LAN, HTTP and web servers, networking services and applications. 
“Introduction to computer networks” is preferred but not required. Because this course is aimed to be self-contained, we will spend a few weeks at the beginning of the semester on the basics of computer networks.
