Course Description

268-Protocols For the Professional Engineer

This course shows some of the historical factors that have given rise to the large number of protocols in existence today. The International Standards Organization (ISO) produced the Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) architecture model that was not necessarily followed, as those models developed since do not strictly adhere to its detail; but the OSI model is widely taught and nearly all involved with protocols know of the OSI model to some degree, so it is used in this course for a common reference.

History is used to show why so many protocols became necessary, when they were developed, and how they followed structures to outline the layered format of many of today's protocols. For the lowest levels of the standards, contrasting technologies in wired and wireless communications are used and two of the IEEE 802 standards were used for some level of detail to discuss how the same standard ISO level can be exploited to explain disparate standards.

Following the history leading to existing protocols, sections are included ongoing protocol developments and design and discussed high speed terrestrial and interplanetary protocols. The student should be able to understand the issues and technologies that have given rise to the many protocols in existence and contribute in the development of future protocols as needed.

Informative course, but difficult to follow the line of thought in places. The wording of several questions on the quiz was a bit confusing.
