The lecture focuses on current developments in the field of Internet-based network technologies. At first, architectural principles of today's Internet are presented and discussed, followed by a motivation of which challenges exist today and in the future and which alternative newer architectural approaches exist. Methods to support multimedia applications, quality of service, and group communication support are discussed. The use of the presented technologies in IP-based networks will be discussed. Advanced approaches such as virtualized, software-based networks and advanced routing are the subject of this lecture as well as newer developments in the field of transport protocols and peer-to-peer networks.
