Outline and Purpose of the Course Lectures describing fundamental concepts related to communications networks such as circuit and packet switching, transmission control, network control, and communication protocols, as well as examples of a variety of communication networks ranging from access systems such as the Internet, wireless LAN, and FTTH.
Course Goals Cultivate an understanding of the basics of communication network technologies to apply to current trends.
Schedule and Contents Foundations of the exchange method and traffic theory, 3 sessions
These sessions will focus on trends in switching technology and the basic theory of traffic analysis.

Wide area network technology and its applications, 3 sessions
These sessions will focus on discussion of the structure of communication networks as an infrastructural component and various technical elements (exchanges, relay, wireless technologies, etc.) constituting the network.

Internet communication, 3 sessions
These sessions will aim to develop proficiency in the basic knowledge required for packet data communication and typical communication protocols.

LAN and protocols, 2 sessions
These sessions will discuss various access protocols and a local area network (LAN) using them.

Case study and development exercises, 3 sessions
These sessions will introduce the current trends in information communication services and systems, with examples of the application of IP nets, wireless LANs, and mobile IT systems, as well as analyze a number of case studies.

Confirmation of learning achievement, 1 session
Confirm (evaluate) achievement of the learning objectives of the course.
Evaluation Methods and Policy Students will be comprehensively evaluated regarding their basic understanding of communication network technology based on regular examinations, reports, and exercises.

Specifically, regular examinations will be evaluated on a 100-point scale, and a maximum of 5 points will be added for each report and exercise assignment submission, for a total overall course score of up to 100 points.
Course Requirements Having previously studied basic communication theory is desirable.
Study outside of Class (preparation and review) It is desirable that students have mastered the basic concepts of communications technologies.
