Networking and Communication
The Internet is not a single network, it is a huge collection of many different and heterogeneous networks that are interconnected. A good understanding of these different technologies is crucial for Internet related research and application development.The key topic "Communications and Networking" covers a broad range of network related issues from aspects of different transmission media (such as optical and wireless) to protocol and application specific problems of multimedia services in communication systems (such as compression and synchronization). Advanced aspects and new topics of computer networks are taught, which includes the latest network technology, as well as its management and simulation aspects. Mobility and security issues are discussed for different wireless systems (such as UMTS, WiMAX, Bluetooth). The following shows a sample study plan for the "Networking and Communication" research focus. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Theoretical Foundations Efficient Algorithms Data and Information Internet Technologies Physical and Data Link Layers in Networks Optical networks Business & Law Multimedia and Telecommunication Law Information and Coding Data and Information Intelligent Internet Algorithms Networking and Communication Mobile Communication Real-Time Networks
