Network Protocols and Architectures (Lecture, WS 2010/11)

The lecture 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 Prof. Wolisz).


  • This lecture is over!
  • First lecture: 20 October (de) / 21 October (en) 2010 with an introduction into the research group Intelligent Networks.

Further Information:



If you are interested in attending, please make sure you are subscribed to the corresponding ISIS website to receive information and announcements.


We will offer this lecture twice:
On wednesdays at 10:00 the lecture will be held in German, on thursdays at 14:00 the same lecture will be held again but this time in English.


If you are enrolled for a bachelor's or master's course at TU Berlin, you are required to take the module "Netzwerkarchitekturen – Grundlagen" ("Network architectures – Basics"; MINF-KT-NA/Glg.W10) which includes the tutorials. Therefore, you are required to pass the tutorials.
Diplom students can either take this course with the tutorials (4 SWS/6 LP) or without (2 SWS/3 LP).

Please see the tutorial's website for details.

You need 50% of the possible points to pass the tutorials. Again, not passing the tutorials means that you will only get 2 SWS/3 LP for this course. This does not satisfy the requirement of the module "Netzwerkarchitekturen – Grundlagen"


The details for registering for the exam are to be announced and will be given in the lecture and the tutorials as well.

Grading Bonus

There will be a grading bonus for those who achieve sufficient points for their homework solutions (tutorials):

  • A bonus of 0.3 if at least 60% of the possible points are achieved.
  • A bonus of 0.7 if at least 75% of the possible points are achieved.

The requirement for granting the bonus is to pass the exam without the bonus! (Those who do not pass will not pass due to the bonus.)
