Future Internet Design and Service Quality
Today, the Internet underpins almost every aspect of our daily lives and it needs to provide efficient support for an increasing number of diverse applications. At Karlstad University, we now offer advanced level academic courses that introduce you to the current trends in the evolution of the Internet and its protocols, and the relation to service quality.
For students and researchers in the area of computer networking as well as network designers, application developers, engineers or telecommunication specialists that work with internet applications or networks that carry internet traffic.
About the course
We begin the course by examining how latency today is the dominating factor that influences performance of many Internet services and what techniques can be used to reduce it. We next explore how web services are designed, how they have evolved over time and what demands they put on the network. We take a look at the QUIC protocol that has emerged as the key protocol for carrying web traffic in the future. We further examine how multi-access communication can be realized and in what situations it can bring benefits to application performance. Finally we explore how the concept of transport services can help evolve the Internet and improve application performance.
