About the content

This course is a hands-on introduction to internet measurements. You will learn about measuring the structure of the internet and the routes through that structure, about delays, losses and connectivity, about bandwidth, and about traffic.

You will see how to make these measurements, and you will understand what you can and cannot learn from them. We teach you how to run measurements from any computer. This course provides you with the ability to launch measurements on PlanetLab Europe, a platform consisting of internet connected servers at over 150 locations around the continent.

This course is structured in 5 weeks. Each week, around 6 course sequences will be available with video lectures, supplementary ressources, associated quiz and applicative exercises.

Prerequisite

You will be ready for this course if you have the level of understanding of internet technology that comes from an advanced undergraduate course or a first Masters course in networking, or equivalent professional experience.

Students' work in the course is assessed through weekly online quizzes based on the content of the videos. In addition, students are asked to perform measurements on the PlanetLab Europe platform through an interface provided by the course, and are quizzed on the results of these experiments. Students are also invited to conduct measurements from their own computers as additional exercises, which are not assessed. A certificate will be issued by FUN, confirming successful completion of the Mooc.

The French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (French: Institut national de recherche en informatique et en automatique) is a French national research institution focusing on computer science and applied mathematics. It was created under the name Institut de recherche en informatique et en automatique (IRIA) in 1967 at Rocquencourt near Paris, part of Plan Calcul. Its first site was the historical premises of SHAPE (central command of NATO military forces). In 1979 IRIA became INRIA. Since 2011, it has been styled inria.

INRIA is a Public Scientific and Technical Research Establishment (EPST) under the double supervision of the French Ministry of National Education, Advanced Instruction and Research and the Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry.

Voici un MOOC focalisé sur un aspect des réseaux : il nécessite d’avoir déjà des connaissances avancées ainsi que de bonnes notions en langue anglaise. Les notions de routage, pertes, latence, géolocalisation, bande passante et mesures de trafic sont étudiés. Sans surprise il faut y passer du temps, notamment pour les TP sur PlanetLab. A la délivrance des 156 attestations de ma session (13/07/16) le MOOC totalisait 1824 inscrits. En conclusion: MOOC pour les passionnés et/ou les professionnels du réseau
