The student must obtain the following competences and skills:
- Ability to design and dimension transport, diffusion and distribution networks for multimedia contents (Specific Competence 4).
- Ability to model, design, deploy, manage, operate, administrate and maintain networks, services and contents (Specific Competence 6).
- Capacity for planning, decision making and packaging of networks, services and applications considering the quality of service, direct and operation costs, deploying plan, monitoring, safety procedures, scaling and maintenance, as well as manage and ensure quality in the development process (Specific Competence 7).
- Ability to understand and apply the working principles and organization of the Internet, the technologies and protocols related with next generation Internet, component models, intermediate software and services (Specific Competence 8).
- Ability to solve the convergence, interoperability and design of heterogeneous networks with local networks, access and trunk, as well as the integration of telephony, data, television and interactive services (Specific Competence 9).
- Ability to manage telecommunication projects and facilities, complying with current legislation, ensuring the quality of service
The learning outcomes that students achieve in this subject are the following:
- Ability to design configurations for connecting networks, using the BGP protocol, according to the business model of the Internet
- Evaluate the main risks faced by communication protocols and its solutions
- Known the relevance of network management and describe its main functions
The course Design and Operation of Communication Networks (DORC) is coordinated with the subject of Advanced Multimedia Services as follows: DORC addresses the provision and servicing of multimedia content primarily at link and network layers, from the perspective of the organization deploying the networks. On the other hand, in the course of Advanced Multimedia Services aspects of transport level and application-related multimedia service, with an emphasis on end-to-end communication, are covered from the perspective of the user and the developer of multimedia software.
