Summary
The course Communication Networks II is focused on IP-based communication networks which are currently the most widespread. Attention is paid to IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, routing protocols, VLANs, NAT, packet filters, and security and redundancy in computer networks. The emphasis is also placed on the practical aspects of building these communication networks.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
To understand the concept and principle of communication networks, including methods of data transmission.

Learning outcomes are set so that the students are able to identify, apply and solve tasks in the field of communication networks.
