Telecommunication is an integral part of today's life. People are used to communicate with any person they would like to by phone, e-mail, chat, or skype at any time at any place. Students in this lecture will learn the basic characteristics of different communication networks. In a bottom-up approach, starting from the physical medium going up to the application, they are introduced into the functionality of different communication layers and protocols and understand how these cooperate to achieve a communication service. Hence, they know different aspects of quality of service the users can expect from different protocols, and are able to specify protocols on their own based on the according protocol mechanisms. As the lecture deals with different networks (telephone network, Internet, mobile communication networks, broadband access networks), the students can characterize these networks and explain the differences.
