This course gives an overview of data communication. The course covers the ISO/OSI seven layer protocol model. Emphasis is placed on the role and function of communication protocols, particularly at the physical and data-link layers. Students gain an understanding of the various communication protocols that have been defined to create communication environments in which computers can exchange information in an open way. Course topics include protocol operation error detection and control, encoding, modulation techniques and data compression. Hands on data communication programming and hardware labs are incorporated into the course so that students can master the material.
