This is a graduate level course on emerging networking technologies. The course involves various components, including reading/lecture/presentation/discussion, paper review, and a project. It will provide an in-depth study on a number of focused areas: dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) optical networks, ELASTIC optical networks, optical burst/packet switching networks, peer-to-peer networks, Internet of Things, Cloud Networking, Enterprise Networking and wireless mobile networks (including Ad-hoc wireless networks, cognitive radio networks). Various technical and research issues involved will be studied. These areas of emerging networking technologies will play central roles in future communication networks.
