  • NetSoft : This course will cover the principle of Network Softwerization by introducing and detailing the concepts of SDN, NFV and Cloud Computing (focusing on the IaaS model and Edge Computing). Besides covering the theoretical aspects, the course will provide an overview of the enabling technologies, and how combining these concepts will allow building flexible and dynamic virtual networks tailored to services, e.g. Anything as a Service (AaaS) and Network Slicing.
  • APPIOT : This course covers the application-level protocols dedicated to IOT. Knowing the limited capacity, in terms of battery and CPU, of the things, the classical application protocols used in the Internet like HTTP are not adequate. This course presents the recent application protocols specially developed for IOT. These protocols are organized into two categories: (i) Client/server (like COAP) and (ii) Publish/Subscribe (like MQTT, XMPP).
