Internet Measurement (Lecture, SoSe 2018)

How does Internet traffic look like? Are there certain characteristics? How and where can the Internet be improved, and how can these improvements be tested? How can the previous questions be answered and which technical challenges are to be dealt with while monitoring? How can privacy guidelines be implemented? When interpreting these measurements, what needs to be considered from a statistics point of view? Is it possible to mimic realistic traffic based on statistics?

These and more questions will be answered in this lecture! The goal is to get to know the characteristics of network traffic and to be able to conduct own measurements.


The exams will take place in the MAR building. Please be there a few minutes earlier and register yourself in Room 4.022.
