Lecture: Network Protocols and Architectures
lecture "Network Protocols and Architectures"
explains the architecture of the Internet and the basics of
every communication within it. Beginning with the application
layer services like Web (HTTP), Mail (SMTP, POP, IMAP)
or name service (DNS) are examined. Afterwards we work through
the transport layer (TCP, UDP) and the network layer (IP).
Finally, we discuss the interactions of the different
protocols. The lower layers (medium access control, data link
and physical) are covered by the lecture TechGI 4 (offered by
The lecture is offered each winter semester in both languages, English and German. It consists of 2 h lecture plus 2 h tutorial. (Diplom students can soleley take the lecture without the tutorial, which equals 2 h/week.)
Lecture: Internet Security
The lecture "Internet
Security" specializes on security aspects on the
It is offered every (to every second) summer term, together with Prof. Seifert (FG SECT ), 2 h/week, in English.
Lecture: Internet Measurement
The lecture "Internet
Measurement" specializes on traffic measurement
It is offered every to every second summer term as an "integrated course", 2 h/week, in English.
Lecture: Internet Routing
The lecture "Internet Routing"
specializes on different routing protocols for both, wired and
It is offered every to every second summer term, 2 h/week, in English.
Integrated Course: Network Optimization by Randomization
The course "Network Optimization by
Randomization" mixes basic elements from probability
directly applicable to practical problems in network protocol
design and analysis.
It is offered each summer term, 4 h/week as an integrated course (lecture with tutorial). It takes place in English.
Integrated Course: Stochastic Network Calculus
The stochastic network calculus is a relatively new theory for the performance analysis of queueing based systems such as communication networks. The goal of this course is to expose students to this branch of fundamental mathematical research and its practical relevance to the pervasive field of communication networks.
This lecture is offered as part of the Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) .
Integrated course: Foundations of Distributed Systems – Complexity and Computability
This course deals with the design of distributed
algorithms, their correctness, and complexity bounds for distributed
computing problems. The notion of a system implementation is treated
here in the algorithmic sense.
This course is offered each summer term, 4 h/week, as an integrated course (lecture with tutorial).
Integrated Course: Theory of Distributed Computing 1: Algorithms and Lower Bounds
This course will be offered by FG
MTV  from now on.
The course focuses on fundamental
algorithms for distributed systems (both for the shared memory
and message passing models), studies lower bounds and discusses
impossibility results. The attendants will get a broad overview of
techniques and will develop basic skills to formally reason about
static and dynamics distributed systems and networks.
This course is offered each summer term, 2 h/week, as an integrated course (lecture with tutorial).
It takes place in English. In winter term the sequel "Theory of Distributed Computing 2: Formal Models and Semantics" is offered by FG MTV .
Seminar: Network Architectures: Internet Routing
The seminar "Internet
Routing" specializes on routing in different (wired
and wireless). Students have to deal with current research
papers. Topics range from improvement of routing algorithms,
such as for the Internet, wireles mesh networks, or overlay
networks, over topology detection and emulation to traffic
engineering or secure routing.
The seminar is offered each winter term. After several preparatory meetings throughout the term the actual seminar takes place en bloc in the semester break.
Seminar: Network Architectures: Internet Measurement
"Internet Measurement" deals with recent findings
and scientific research papers concerning Internet
measurement. In general these topics are measuring and
analysing special characteristics (e.g. throughput, delay,
jitter, RTTs, topology) of Internet traffic.
The seminar is offered each summer term. After several preparatory meetings throughout the term the actual seminar takes place en bloc in the semester break.
Lab Course: Routerlab
Topics of the lab course
"Routerlab" are routing protocols, IP
multicast, packet forwarding, configuration of packet filters,
traffic shaping (QoS), VPNs, PPP, AAA and monitoring and
management of the network components. By configuring selected
protocols, mechanisms and management functions on real router
hardware, students are supposed to gain a better understanding
of the Internet in general.
The course is offered each summer term, 6 h/week, in English.
Lab Course: Wireless Lab
In the lab course "Wireless
Lab" students set up a wireless network and implement
protocols for it.
The course is offered each winter term, 6 h/week, in English.
Project: Network Architectures
Projects are offered all
the time in all sizes. Topics include implemenations and
evaluations. A list of topics can be found on our theses
Theses for Bachelor, Master, or Diplom are also
offered all the time. Possible thesis topics are also listed
on the theses website.
At the students' talk series
("students' PGT", further information ) students who
write a study project or thesis at FG INET give (initial and) final
talks about their work. These talks take place irregularly (when
needed) but each term, see list of talks  (together with the
Project group meeting (Projektgruppentreffen, PGT)
PGT  is the doctoral seminar of the group. Here, PhD
students and guests give talks about their work. Everyone who is
interested in the topic is invited to the talk.
The PGT takes place each term but in varying times. A list of upcoming talks  is available online.
