In this course, we discuss peer-to-peer protocols and local area networks. Part one in this course is to answer the question of how does a peer-to-peer protocol deliver reliable data transfer service across unreliable transmission lines or networks. We focus on several medium access control protocols and their performance analysis. In the second part, we discuss how medium access control protocols coordinate the access to the communication channel so that information gets through from a source to a destination in the same broadcast local area network. We further discuss local area network and wireless LAN.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PEER-TO-PEER PROTOCOLS AND LOCAL AREA NETWORKS
This course is really awesome! I highly recommend to all undergraduate students. this is something students really need to understand, especially for those who pursue their profession in this domain.
Awesome course. Learning materials are good. Assignments and final project is sufficiently challenging. Learned a lot.
helped me to learn how communication takes place in LAN and Peer to Peer network, it was good course, i enjoyed.
Very good for understanding the topic of Peer-to-Peer Protocols and Local Area Networks
About the Computer Communications Specialization
This specialization is developed for seniors and fresh graduate students to understand fundamental network architecture concepts and their impacts on cyber security, to develop skills and techniques required for network protocol design, and prepare for a future of constant change through exposure to network design alternatives. Students will require a prior knowledge of C programming, an understanding of math probability and a computer science background is a plus.
