The purpose of this course is to provide a broad
overview of the current state, key technical issues, and likely future
directions of network and distributed computing technologies. Participants
won’t learn how to code TCP/IP, but will gain a good understanding of what
networks are about, knowledge of the nature of the key technologies, and
appreciation of the issues that are likely to shape networks in the future.
We’ll cover important topics on network management, optical networks,
international network and networking experiments, open grid service
architecture, P2P technologies and applications, data grid applications, access
gird technology and applications, and security.
