Trasmissione di Informazioni
Transmission of Informations Franco Moglie
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The student will be able to know, understand and analyze the transmission media, the types of signals, networks, protocols the security of the information transmission.CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
This optional course will give to the student the basic concepts related to the transmission of information. It will also allow the student to learn the basics elements to choose a transmission system based on transmission media, protocols, bandwidth and security. The evaluation of the student is based on an oral examination that will give the degree of preparation of the student through the answers to standard questions. The evaluation of the student is based on an oral examination which will assess his skill through his answers to standard questions.TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
This course, which emphasizes the transmission of information in its multidisciplinary aspects, will help the student to improve its autonomy from both judgement and learning capacity point of views. It will improve also its capacity of synthesis and its clarity of exposition.
Class lectures (20 hours).
Introduction to the signals, to the networks and to the A/D conversion. Hints of modulation and of time-frequency duality. Transmission media: the choice parameters, the line pair, the coaxial cable, the optical fibers. Computer network: protocols, ISO/OSI and TCP/IP. UDP and TCP packets, ports, TCP connections; networks devices. Wireless LAN. NAT networks.
Classroom practice (4 hours).
During the exercises, some common network software will be used.
Development of the examination
LEARNING EVALUATION METHODS
An oral exam will evaluate the student skill. During the exam, two or more topics developed during the course will be discussed.
LEARNING EVALUATION CRITERIA
To obtain a positive evaluation, the student must demonstrate that has understood the concepts presented in the course, and must demonstrate that has completely understood the dimensioning and the operating of a communication network, including the physical medium, the switching and the protocols.
LEARNING MEASUREMENT CRITERIA
The vote is an average of the each response weighted according to the complexity of the question.
FINAL MARK ALLOCATION CRITERIA
The evaluation is positive when the student obtains the sufficiency, i.e. 18/30 points. The highest rating is achieved by demonstrating a very good understanding of the course content. Praise is given to students who have demonstrated an excellent understanding of all the discussed topics.
