CN8819: Multimedia Networks

NOTES | LABS | SOLUTIONS | FINAL GRADES

 Course Description:

This course covers the concepts and designs of multimedia networks. First it introduces Voice over IP (VoIP) network architecture, voice coding, and the configurations of voice interfaces and voice dial peers. Next it investigates the Quality of Service (QoS) techniques in VoIP. These techniques include admission control, traffic policing, traffic shaping, and various queuing disciplines. Then it focuses on VoIP technology and related protocols, such as RSVP, Differentiated Service, and Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP). Finally, the course will concentrate on various multimedia signaling protocols, including H.323, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), and Media Gateway control Protocol (MGCP).
