Jan 2021's paper is not appearing for some reason: here it is (the CM50123 paper content is identical).


Not much on Moodle CM30078 CM50123


A long list of acronyms, taken from "The Art of Computer Networking".

Not all of these are used in this Unit!


Note that these slides are reminders to me as to what topics I should cover: like all units, you are expected to read around the subject and refer to your lecture notes. Don't treat the slides as the entirety of your study.

I have skipped some material in lectures (e.g., Presentation and Applications): why not improve your general education and read the extra too! The exam will only be set on material covered in lectures and your lecture notes will tell you what was covered in lectures.
