1st Year: Basic Knowledge in Networks
Networks – telephone networks, Internet, cellular networks or simply private networks – have today taken a prominent place in the lives of individuals and businesses alike. The success, then the convergence of mobile networks and Internet, has enabled standards, methods and tools to evolve and adapt.
Because of the current importance of IP (Internet Protocol) technologies, a large part of the teaching will be articulated around the architecture and mechanisms of the Internet and local networks.
The RES101 course is an introduction to networking with the aim to give students a current vision of the services, technologies, methods and tools that every engineer must master today.
2nd Year – RIO Track: Wireless Networks and IoT
Track’s advisor: Anaïs Vergne
The RIO track offers in-depth training in mobile networks and the Internet of Things (IoT).
While cellular networks have profoundly changed our communication usages, the Internet of Things (IoT) is envisioned to revolutionise health, industry, transportation, cities or entertainment. Mobile networks and IoT, are therefore the two major components of the fifth generation to come.
With this track, students will become engineers, who are very familiar with existing technologies, but also able to design these networks of the future. The track offers a balanced training between the generic principles of wireless networks, technological aspects (standards, protocols, architectures, including for mobile cloud computing), platform experiments, theoretical aspects (stochastic modeling for performance evaluation and optimization), and openings on current challenges.

2nd Year – GIN Track: Large Digital Infrastructure
Track’s advisor: Jean-Louis Rougier
The GIN track aims at providing an overview of different stakeholders of large digital infrastructures, their relationship and the various technologies deployed by them: Content Distribution Providers (video and Web in particular), Cloud Service Providers,
Internet Service Providers/Operators, Campus and Enterprise Networks, Access Networks (Mobile, Internet of Things (IOT)) and end users.
The approach is both technical, looking at architectures and protocols but also techno-economical (relation between the different actors, potential tensions and challenges). Security issues are also covered (thanks to courses mutualized with the SR2I track). The goal is not only to understand the current or forthcoming technologies involved, but to understand the reasons explaining these evolutions.
The GIN track provides a comprehensive view of the different stakeholders, architectures and technologies of large digital infrastructures. It integrates in a coherent unit serveral components (cloud, fixed and mobile networks, security) which may also be covered in other specific tracks.
