The Lab provides the fundamental networking concepts and technologies focusing on both the conceptual and practical skills needed to understand basic networking, focusing on the fast emerging field of multimedia authoring and application development. It covers multimedia representation, storage, and communication. It provides the students with the basics of integrating audio, video, and textual sources into multimedia objects. Students will gain an understanding of the “layered” approach to networks and examine the OSI and TCP/IP layers in detail to understand their functions and services. It provides the underlying concepts and processes of the common Layer 2 switching protocols and technologies. It provides a comprehensive study of inter-networking as well as routing concepts and protocols to develop an understanding of how networks are linked together.

The second track, Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with Computer Networks Concentration, is for students who plan to have in-depth knowledge of today’s rapidly growing field of Computer Networks. Once they graduate, students pursuing this track will be ready to apply for leading industry certificates such as the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certificate which improves their competitiveness in today’s challenging job market where networking is an essential ingredient of almost every business.

The mission of our networking paradigm is to explore, design, develop, and study reliable, scalable, self-managing networks and systems. We have two goals: to engage in fundamental research that improves the state-of-the-art in networked systems design; and to help IT professionals build and deploy compelling networking concepts. Research spans mobile and wireless networks; wide area internet systems and protocols; datacenter, enterprise and home networks, network monitoring, inference, diagnosis, and network performance improvements and analysis. Research can investigate new connectivity paradigms emphasizing scenario-based research with rapid prototyping so that researchers can experiment with actual systems.
