The COMPUTER NETWORKING Thread
1
0
When I apped, I was very worried that I could never apply for a CS major in networks thinking that would be like a domain shift ; and I was from an ECE background. Having come here and having been on edulix for so long now I know its not..Smile

Well I need to give credit to zodiac’s embedded thread for inspiration and zodiac himself. I do not have extensive knowledge on networks the way he does in the embedded domain, but having decided to pursue a major in computer networking myself, I decided to create this thread as a starting point to all those fellow networking appers.

Needless to say I would want seniors and fellow appers alike to give inputs and reply to queries if they are knowledgeable about the same. Constructive criticism would definitely be appreciated. If you have any more/specific details reply to the thread or PM me about the same so that I can update the page.


The way I see networking has many divisions which branch into several other domains. I have attempted to classify this based on what I perceive it to be , based on research areas which universities define(in general) and concentrate on, based on what industry seems to be divided on and based on how profs categorize their research. Research might be a collusion of several of these(and it is in most of the cases) and never isolated to one field.
The below, I believe will help juniors in the sense of knowing what to search for. Again a detailed description of each is not possible. I have tried briefing up to provide an essence of what each field revolves around.

RESEARCH AREAS

1) Algorithm development at various layers for effective deployment and implementation of networks
-> Developing new algorithms and bettering existing algorithms at the MAC layer and effective implementation of MAC protocols.
-> Transport, Network layer.
TCP/IP are not the only protocols on earth..Smile Do search for ATM,MPLS etc to get to know where the world is moving into. New ideas around MPLS are being brought into the picture to improve QoS and Traffic engineering.
-> Multimedia over IP (VoIP etc)
->Graph theory approaches to solve network problems.

2) Wireless networks and communication/Telecommunication
This a vast area by itself .
->Basic idea of the communication side of things is essential even for a networks guy as they generally go hand in hand - involves RF signal-Antenna properties, Modulation, Digital communication etc
-> Mobile and Telecommunication involves base stations, call handling in a wireless system, sector sizes and partitioning, speech and audio codecs (vocoders) ,spread spectrum techniques etc
->The networking side of this includes working on various wireless MAC protocols, signaling,implementing fault tolerance in wireless, improving signal reception etc.

3) Wireless sensor networks
Recently took a course on this and found that this is a very potential field for research.
-> Industries are mainly concentrated on building boards for sensors and the VLSI side of getting chips up. They look out for RF, analog designers for the same.
-> Academia works on both that as well as trying to improve performance, communication and security.
-> Research also revolves around power management and sensor deployment .TinyOS developed by Berkeley is the OS on which most of the sensors (popularly called motes) run.
(ping me if you want more info on these)

4) Performance and QoS analysis of networks
Most of the protocols which have been designed need to satisfy certain performance requirements and quality tests before actual deployment. Academia performs a lot of theoretical and experimental analysis in order to verify the same and propose extensions to existing schemes to improve them. This area involves a lot of probability, experimental and theoretical (mathematical) analysis.

5) Networking, OS and distributed systems
This is where your ‘network’ interfaces with the system. For any communication to happen between the ‘internet’ and the system (in other words for you to run an application) there has to be a program which talks to the OS ( - Socket programming). Now complicate this by adding the seven layers of OSI and a bunch of applications to run. And then let one of these computers communicate with other such systems running similar applications and there my friend you just saw networking, socket programming along with distributed systems.

6) Cryptography and Security (Also called Information Assurance here)
->Security at application layer is of so much concern that many profs have this as their research area. Blame some of the browsers for all the security leaks, but with so many types of plugins and applets this field definitely has a need for coders.
-> Research in Security at the TCP/IP layer has been going on for ages and the field itself has diversified to include issues presented by the discovery of new hacking tools. Anonymous browsing (checkout TOR) to packet sniffers to botnets, the variety of tools used by hackers have increased over the years, and therein lies the importance of security.

I have mentioned below some of the universities I have researched into along with links to specific groups/labs and profs I felt were into networking. Please note that this is just meant to be a starting point in your quest for apping to universities. There is a lot of research you will have to do before deciding whether you want to apply to a particular place or not. In particular look through the professor’s web page , their research, the labs they work in, industry affiliations, grants etc.

hey guys, u posted a very useful one...i m interested in NETWORKING but i dont know much about that .. i have done only one project on NETWORKING (PERFORAMANCE and EVALUATION of SELFISH ROUTING ) ... other than that i dont know much about other things.. but the thing is i m interested in only that field ( had only slight knowledge about it) ..... I m interested to work hard but scared that whether i can perform or not if i go there as i dont know much about that field ... What can edulix seniors suggest me ...Plz help me i want to go for this spring

i want to pursue MS in computer information and security or either in computer networks field. I have completed my graduation in electrical and electronics field with aggregate of 53 Percentage only. Even if i score around 1300 in gre are there any chances of me getting into any of the top 100 universities in US. Of course i do have the knowledge of sops and lor's still on the basis of academics i may be ruled out. Please let me know what are my chances.

@kiran
buddy relax and rephrase your question.
Not many of us have prior experience in networks before doing a Masters. You have done a project on networking which would definitely help your profile. A basic undergrad course is sufficient to get started with..so relax and get started!!!
(Would you mind editing the part where you have quoted the whole post....decreases the readability of the thread..!!)

@xalin
Academics is one of the most important part of an application. I think you should definitely make it to universities within top 100 provided you backup your profile with good projects or research ,SOP,LoRs.

@b.harish85
Thanks...As far as books are concerned I have to say I read less of those.I mostly refer to online resources/papers. All the courses I have taken here-I hardly used many books. Let me see if I can get some info on that..

@kiranchitturi - Some of the best resources for learning about Networking are

1) Internetworking Technology Handbook - http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/internet...ernet.html

2)The TCP/IP Guide by Charles Kozeirok - you can check for torrents online - the pdf version is a massive 27 MB!

You can also start with Wikipedia - for basic terms, protocols. Wiki has articles explaining protocols in very simple terms

Is anyone here actually working on a Research Proposal?

I would like to join in. I have 2+ yrs work ex in Networking domain. Mainly I have worked on WAN protocols and Quality of Service features. I also have an idea about MPLS and other Layer 2/Layer 3 protocols.

MPLS - QoS is such a hot topic.. Also some other things I thought about are QoS in IPv6, QoS in wireless devices, Network processors and how high perf computing could be used, Virtual routers, etc..

If anyone is also looking a same things we could explore together and come up with some research problem..

I am glad i stumbled upon this thread as it is extremely helpful for aspirants like me. I am a cs student currently in my final year and writing GRE on oct 13th.

The thread gives a very good insight regarding the depts, however it would be great if someone could throw more light regarding the placements in these univ for N/w branch.

Of course placements are based on performance of the student, so assuming that an average student, with a pretty decent record in univ how would you rate the placements in the following colleges?

1.UCI
2.Cornell Univ
3.UCSD
4.CMU
5.NCSU
6.Gatech
7.Vtech
8.ISU
9.Univ of Florida
10.UIUC

1) Internetworking Technology Handbook - http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/internet...ernet.html

2)The TCP/IP Guide by Charles Kozeirok - you can check for torrents online - the pdf version is a massive 27 MB!

You can also start with Wikipedia - for basic terms, protocols. Wiki has articles explaining protocols in very simple terms
