The MOOC “Internet Measurements: a Hands-on Introduction” is taught by Timur Friedman from UPMC and Renata Teixeira from Inria.
This course is taught in English and will cover internet measurement basics, including network topology and routes; connectivity, losses, latency, and geolocation; bandwidth; and traffic measurements; with hands-on exercises on PlanetLab Europe.
This course is of interest to a wide range of people: system or network operators, designers of applications or services running over the internet or just curious end-users who would like to better diagnose problems.
The prerequisite for this course is a level of understanding of internet technology that comes from an advanced undergraduate course or a first Masters course in networking, or equivalent professional experience.
