We are organizing a pair of educational tutorials on Networking Technology as part of the Workshop on Performance of Real-time Applications on the Internet. The tutorials will be on Nov. 5th, 1996, from 9 am to 5 pm, with 2 speakers presenting complementary tutorials on the two primary networking technologies that are being worked on today: The Internet Protocol Suite and Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) Networks.
Tutorial 1: 9 am - 12:30 am.
The tutorial provides background information on selected protocols and issues from the Internet protocol suite. In particular, it covers the Internet architecture, addressing and routing, the Internet protocol (both versions 4 and 6), the TCP and UDP transport protocols and TCP congestion control issues as well as the mechanisms and protocols needed to transport real-time audio and video in the Internet.
The tutorial assumes familiarity with basic notions of packet-switched networks.
Tutorial 2: 1:30 - 5 pm.
The objective of this tutorial is to provide a self-contained introduction to ATM technology. We will start with a brief history of the evolution of ATM and proceed to discuss the key protocols and control mechanisms associated with ATM networks. We will conclude with a summary of the challenges that lie ahead in realizing the potential of ATM.
