About this Unit
With the advent of the era of Internet of Things, the Internet has become a huge infrastructure in which various kinds of systems are running to deliver a plethora of network services. To ensure the efficient utilization of network resources (e.g., bandwidth) and the convenient access to network services, systems and networks must be managed in a proper way. Facing this demand, this unit covers the standards, protocols and skills pertinent to the management of systems and networks. Moreover, this unit introduces Software Defined Networking (SDN), a new paradigm for conducting network management with programmability, flexibility and scalability.
