In this course, we trace the evolution of networks and identify the key concepts and functions that form the basis for layered architecture. We introduce examples of protocols and services that are familiar to the students, and we explain how these services are supported by networks. Further, we explain fundamental concepts in digital communication, and focus on error control techniques that include parity check, polynomial code, and Internet checksum. Students will be required to have some previous programming experience in C-programming (C++/Java), some fundamental knowledge of computer organization and IT architecture and a background in computer science is a plus.

FUNDAMENTALS OF NETWORK COMMUNICATION からの人気レビュー
This course helped me build foundation of computer communication. In the end, I feel like I had fun with interesting contents and assignments questions.
Good introductory course to network communications. Far from a semester's worth of content, however, which is supposed to be what distinguishes Coursera from other platforms.
The course was good, and the syllabus too, but the way of teaching is not so impressive, it was just like someone reading from the slides in the video lecture.
It was a very good start in Network communication.
The lectures, quizzes, and materials are designed in a very good manner to reach the end of the course with the needed fundamentals.
