Architecture of Communication Networks (bilingual)

This is the unofficial home page of the English part of the lecture "Architecture of Communication Networks (bilingual)". I will provide material for this course on this web page in addition to Aula Global for some time.

Slides for the Theoretical Sessions

You can download the PDFs (2x2 per page) from the lecture slides using the links below.

Slides without the Background Graphics

To create these slides, I only deleted the background images from the master template to reduce the size of the PDF files. These slides are the latest version of the above slides including all changes.

The topics for the presentations in January.
The schedule is now as follows:
