Management of Communication Networks

The lecture provides an overview of the fundamentals and current trends in the management of communication networks. Various use cases and examples illustrate how network management is applied in different contexts. The monitoring of communication networks is examined, and specific protocols and methods are introduced. In the area of network configuration, the transition from traditional methods, such as command-line configuration, to modern automation frameworks is discussed. Finally, the current state of programmable networks is explored, a field that is gaining increasing importance and opening up new possibilities in network technology. Practical exercises are provided for all topics, allowing participants to apply the concepts and technologies introduced in a hands-on manner.
