Course description: Computer communication networks are among the most important and influential global infrastructures that humanity has created. The goal of this course is to provide a foundational view of communication networks, with a focus on networks enabling modern hyperscale cloud computing. In the first part of this course, we-ll study the principles upon which the Internet and other computer networks are built, and how those principles translate into deployed protocols. In the second part of this course, we build on those principles to learn how to build a network infrastructure that provides the agility to deploy virtual networks on a shared infrastructure, that enables both efficient transfer of big data and low latency communication, and that enables applications to be federated across countries and continents. Topics will include: switching; intradomain routing; the Internet Protocol and interdomain networking; reliability, flow control, congestion control, and their
