The class aims at giving the basic knowledge of the main networks technologies with a particular focus on Internet and wireless ones and their usage within monitoring and emergency management. The class contents are organized into four parts, addressing network basics, Internet technologies (TCP/IP), wireless technologies and finally their applications for monitoring and emergency management.
Basic concepts on modern Network and Internet technologies; introduction to the architecture and protocols for wireless communication; basic concepts on Radio Cellular Networks , WiFi, Bluetooth and sensor networks technologies. Machine to Machine standards. Laboratory practical and simulative experiences.
The main goal of the class is to provide basic knowledge of network technologies with a particular focus on the Internet architecture, wireless networks and their applications to monitoring and emergency management. No previous specific background knowledge is required for effectively following the course. More specifically, the lectures start with the networking basic definitions and concepts, including reference architectures, layering, circuit and packet switching and physical and data layer technology summary. The successive topic is Internet technologies, starting from the architecture, and going on with application layer, and ending with a summary of the main characteristics of its main protocols, i.e. IP and TCP. The third subject is wireless networks, which are introduced and characterized in general at first and successively described specifically for each relevant typology: mobile radio networks (from GSM to 4G and 5G), WiFi (IEEE 802.11), Bluetooth (IEEE 802.15) and, finally, sensor networks and specific technologies. Finally, by using some examples, the application of the described technologies to monitoring and emergency management is discussed with the support of some practical examples.
Traditional lectures with some technological demonstrations.
