Network Architectures: Internet Measurement (Seminar, SoSe 2014)

The Internet influences our life more and more: Many of us use electronic mail instead of writing with pen and paper; homebanking and ordering books over the web are in everyday life; and elections via Internet are in field tests. Furthermore, the interconnectedness gets denser and the day is near that every coffee maker is programmable through the internet and every car connects to its manufacturer for diagnosis.

This seminar 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, RTT's) of Internet traffic. The seminar will likely take place in the 2nd or 3rd week after the end of the term as a one- or two-day block.


Thursday 17.04.2014, 2:00 - 4:00p.m., room MAR 4.033.
