AIM:
To understand the internals of a router and get an experience of designing such systems.

OBJECTIVES:
·    To learn the functions of a router, and its architecture.
·        To  learn  about  Network  processors   their  architecture,  programming issues, and design issues.

UNIT I             ROUTING IN IP NETWORKS                                                                    9
Static  Routes   Dynamic  Routes   RIP  v1,  RIP  v2   IGRP   EIGRP   SPF  Integrated IS-IS IP Traffic engineering Traffic, Stochasticity, Delay and Utilization Application view Architecture Framework EGP, BGP routing.

UNIT II            ROUTER ARCHITECTURE                                                                       9
Function  of  Router   Types   Elements   Packet  flow   Packet  Processing  - Algorithms  And  Data  Structures  (packet  buffer  allocation,  etc) - Packet  processing functions  (Bridge  Algorithm,  Table  Lookup  And  Hashing,  etc)-  Protocol  Software (threads Interrupts etc - Hardwar Architecture Fo Protoco Processing   - Classification And Forwarding Switching Fabrics.

UNIT III           NETWORK PROCESSORS                                                                       9
Scalability  With  Parallelism  And  Pipelining      -  Complexity  Of  Network  Processor Design (packet processing, ingress & egress  processing, Macroscopic Data Pipelining And Heterogeneity      etc) - Network  Processor  Architectures  : architectural  variety, Primary architectural characteristics, Packet Flow, Clock Rates, software architecture, Assigning Functionality To The Processor Hierarchy.

UNIT IV           NP ARCHITECTURES                                                                              9
Issues In Scaling A Network Processor (processing hierarchy and scaling) examples of commercial Network Processors : Multi-Chip Pipeline, Augmented RISC Processor, Embedded Processor Plus Coprocessors,  etc. - Design Tradeoffs and consequences (Programmability Vs. Processing Speed , speed vs functionality. etc).

UNIT V            CASE STUDY NP ARCHITECTURE AND PROGRAMMING             9
Intel  NP  - Multithreaded  Architecture  Overview  –  Basic  Features,  External Connections Internal  components   Embedded  RISC  processor  (instruction  set, internal   periphera unit User  And   Kerne Mod Operation -Packet   Processor Hardware (microsequencing, instruction set, etc) – memory interfaces system and control  interface  components   Bus  interface  -Software  Developmen Kit   IXP instruction  set   MicroEngine  Programming  - thread  synchronization   developing sample applications.
