CS702: Advanced Network Management (Fall 2007)


Network management entails monitoring and controlling various network devices on today's networks in order to provide a more reliable, secure and efficient network environment. This course focuses on recent advances in network management. The course will briefly review the concepts and techniques used in network management. We will then examine the latest research approaches and results in network management.

Mon. & Wed. 1:15-2:30 pm (PIRL-421)
The language used in lectures and presentations is English!


A course on network managment (e.g., CS607) is required. If a student did not take a network management course but wishes to take this course, the student may be admitted under the discretion of the instructor.

Required Texts:

There will not be a required text for this course. Research papers will be selected from journals and conferences and distributed to students to read.

Related Conferences:


  • Evaluation on each student will be done based on the following:
    1. Assignments - 40%
    2. Term Project - 60%
  • Note: the above evaluation scheme may change slightly during the course.


There will be a few assignments (worth 40% of the final mark).

Late assignments may be handed in, but there will be a penalty of 20% of the mark for assignments turned in less than one day late, and an additional penalty of 10% for each day thereafter.

Term Project:

There will be a term project (worth 60% of the final mark) in this course. It can be a system development project or a research project. The project topic must be proposed and approved. For a system development project, the following schedule is a tentative one. For a research project, a similar schedule will be used.
