Acquiring the basic skills in theory of communication systems, communication protocols for computer networks, remote and distributed processes.
Starting from the fundamentals of Information Theory, set by C. Shannon, which, in a communication context,allow to assess the limits of possibility in terms of source coding and channel capacity. In particular, the concepts of mutual information and source encoding and channel is introduced. Finally, we are interested in defining the ability of a discrete communication channel and continuous.
We continue with the non-exhaustive presentation of TCP / IP protocols. After the presentation of the concepts of socket programming the remote plant control and distributed methods are used together. Also we learned the basics of network diagnostic communications.
