Summary form only given. The tutorial presents a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of high-speed networking, based on the book by J.P.G. Sterbenz and J.D. Touch ("High-Speed Networking: A Systematic Approach to High-Bandwidth Low-Latency Communication", John Wiley, 2001). The target audience includes computer scientists and engineers who may have expertise in a narrow aspect of high-speed networking, but want to gain a broader understanding of all aspects of high-speed networking and the impact that their designs have on overall network performance. The tutorial is not about any particular protocols and standards, but is rather a systemic and systematic approach to the principles that guide the research and design of high-speed networks, protocols, and applications. The tutorial presents a set of fundamental axioms, some major topics and a set of design principles that are defined and applied to each of the topics. A set of design techniques are introduced and applied as appropriate.
