Learning outcomes

This course is the basic introductory course on the concepts of networking and data transfer, management processes. This course aims to introduce students to the basic concepts of networking, connecting data transfer concept with their respective targets in service quality, an environment and an understanding of the whole picture and the requirements for the effective management. It also refers to introductory concepts in data transfer management methodologies and internet impact , so that the student has an overall understanding of processes and methodologies in data transfer . In this sense, the lesson is the basis on which specific methodologies and management techniques for end-to-end data transfer are developed into individual specific courses of direction. Finally, the aim of the course is to understand from the students the importance of data promotion in the modern technological evolution and the evolution of networking , administration and management in a distinct scientific field / occupation

Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
It has understanding of the key and critical aspects of data transfer and networking, to connect them with general technological and operational objectives.
• Is aware of the tools and techniques of data transfer and how they are used to ensure the successful completion of services in time and within quality of service goals
• Can distinguish key roles in a real or networking study and assess the role of the levels involved in the implementation.
• Uses networking and data transfer methodologies to identify key elements such as critical route, losses, security and dependencies, and a realistic environment .
• Collaborate with its fellow students to create and present comprehensive laboratory exercises that include study, analysis, and implementation elements.
