IT Networking and Communication

Learning Outcome 1: Identify the operation of the protocols that are used inside the Internet and use the seven-layer model to classify networking topology, protocol, and security needs.

Learning Outcome 2: Evaluate LAN technology issues, including routing and flow control. Explain the difference between switches and routers. Build and troubleshoot Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and Leased line networks. Connect networks with routers.

Learning Outcome 3: Apply the advanced knowledge gained to reflect on the security requirements of a network. Evaluate the issues that surround network applications such as quality of service (QoS) and network performance analysis. Be adaptable to changing requirements.

Case Study:
Your group is hired as a consultancy firm to set up a small private day-patient hospital network technology. The hospital has one building, 5 floors, Basement dedicated to secure car parking, Level 1 consists of a reception and a waiting room, Level 2 and 3 consistent of 2 operating theaters, 4 post-operative recovery rooms, Level 5 is the management, financial offices and the staff room.

Patients can access Wifi and there is an internal website - one page explaining how to get on to the network. Staffing is as follows: 4 Management, 3 financial officers and 5 nurses and 3 doctors.
The nurses and doctors share 4 phones per each floor on Level 2 and Level 3. Management staff and financial officers have a phone each.

In Packet Tracker:

Construct the appropriate network technologies. Separate Level 2 and 3 from other offices using VLANs. Separate VoIP phones on VLAN 0.
Setup appropriate subnet Config the wireless LAN.
Setup a WebSever for the website
Setup a DHCP server and a DNS server. Enable routers to connect to each other. Setup a STP.
Appropriate label your network diagram with annotation and background image. Generate appropriate network traffic.
Show QoS (e.g. show policy-map interface serial 0/0/0) before and after simulation.

Throughout this assessment you may find the following CISCO packet tracer sample labs useful. (File-> Open Samples) Wireless LAN, DHCP, Wireless, DNS, HTTPS, Wireless LAN Security Remember to view the configuration of a CISCO box use the following command; enable, show run

In a 5-6 minute video demonstrate your working Packet Tracer showing all features completed with appropriate traffic. Do NOT show you configuring them.

In a written report explain the following:
Explain the network subnets, super nets, etc (how did you implement and why. Broadcast address, network address, default gateway, host range)
Explain your topologies (e.g. why you uses switches/routers in the appropriate location) Explain what security measures are in place or how the security could be improved.
Explain what your design reliability, redundancy and other features that may have. Discuss in terms of OSI models, networking terminology, etc.

The word limit of the report is 1000 words.
The cover page must specify student names, ID numbers, unit details, and assignment details.
The assignment must use a 12-point font size and at least single line spacing with appropriate section headings.
The report must be submitted in a soft (electronic) copy as a Microsoft Word document on the LMS in Turnitin enabled submission link.
