Course description
     Object of the lectures will be the methods and the instrumentation for monitoring and testing o computer networks. The instrumentation for the characterization of today's computer networks and network devices (routers, switches) will be analyzed and used in practical cases. An overview about protocol testing methodologies and instruments will be given and the interoperability testing will be introduced. Finally protocols for network management will be discussed.

Objectives of the course
     The lectures and the laboratory experiments will give to the students methodologies and ability to work on the diagnostics and the metrological characterization of the computer network devices. The course is highly oriented to laboratory activities.
