Internet connection acts like boon in our daily life. Through internet, people can get everything like information, booking tickets, taking appointment of doctors and many others in the grasp of their hand. Few networks like LAN (Local Area Network), MAN (Metropolitan Area Network) and WAN (Wide Area Network) help to provide the internet connection in the appropriate way. Among the networks, LAN provides connection to the group of computers, which are linked with a server device. LAN serves the internet connection in small geographic area whereas WAN provides worldwide connection. In the LAN network, the server is the main device, which is connected with the group of computers. If somehow the server does not work, the complete area of the server will face problem. The study will focus on the configuration of LAN in the effective way. It will provide the idea of designing the LAN network in the lab of Victoria University. It will emphasise the topic of network devices and cables in the effective way. In order to analyse the LAN in the efficient wan, it will focus on the LAN theory.
The LAN is the network, through which, the internet connection is provided into the local area. As mentioned by Bassey, Ogbulezie & Effiom (2016), the server is the main device in order to provide the internet connection using LAN. In the Victorian University, 20 computers and 1 printer is connected with the server. The router, Cisco 2950/2960 series switches, has been used for preparing the diagram of LAN network. The diagram are followed by-
Computer network library: It is comprised of 29 equipments and symbols. The designer needs to use different shapes of WAN, LAN, MAN for developing the network service in the labs of Victoria University. The diagrams are needed to design in the logical and physical levels. The systems like topology, layout system, wiring and many others are used for designing LAN network.
Library of computer peripheral device: There are 20 symbols for drawing the LAN, MAN WAN network in the effective way using peripheral devices.
Network isomeric library and computers: As per the viewpoint of Simmons (2014), using this library, the telecommunication system has been developed through internet. 56 3D symbols are there for preparing the diagram in the proper way.
Library of external digital devices: The 15 icons are there for drawing the diagram of LAN in the effective way.
Internet symbols library: The 11 icons of web shapes help to complete the diagram in the effective way. In case of Victoria University, the authority follows the equipments in time of designing the LAN network.
Logical symbols library: 38 logical icons are used in time of preparing the diagram.
Library of logical network diagram: 16 symbols are used for developing the diagram.
Network hardware library: 27 symbols are used for preparing the network in the proper way.
In Victoria University, the server is connected with 20 computers and internet connection is provided through router named Cisco 2950/2960 series switches.
In order to track the connection in the effective way, the sitemap is necessary. As suggested by Venkatraman (2016), the local host is able to know the deployment of the network. Hence, in order to expand the network, local host use free router in the effective way. In Victoria University, the router, Cisco 2950/2960 series switches, is used for deploying the area in the effective way.
In order to expand the area, the Victoria University can use more than one server. Dart et al. (2014) suggested that, one router is able to connect small group of computers. If the authority of Victoria University is able to set more than one server, it will help to expand the area of network. The IP (Internet Protocol) address helps to find out the service of LAN network. In order to know that whether the work is done in the effective way or not in the lab of Victoria University, the authority of the University can track the IP address. It provides the effective outcome.
In the opinion of Badri, Bashiri & Hejazi (2013), the network inventories help to keep data related to the information technology (IT) in the effective way.
The network devices help to provide the internet connection in the effective way. The network devices are network switch, router, network hub, modem, bridge, repeaters and many others. In order to develop the LAN network in the lab of Victoria University, the router, Cisco 2950/2960 series switches, has been used. 10.109.140.0/23 sub network has been used for developing the LAN network.
In order to access the data and file through internet, the network cable is the important part. Network cables incorporate the idea of speeds, caveats of technology and Ethernet copper cabling specifications. In the computer lab of Victoria University, fibre optic cable has been used as it helps to provide high speed in time of transferring the data. 4 meters cables are needed for developing the network in the appropriate way.
Other tools and accessories
The other accessories that are needed for designing the LAN network in the effective way are fibre inspection, crimp tools and compression, insertion-Extraction tools, loopback testers, network testers, punch down tools, strippers, tool sets and many others. The router,
The IP addressing plan helps to draw the path of distributing the network in the appropriate way. It helps to identify different devices in the effective way through tracking IP address of the devices. The IP address of system of lab of Victoria University is 10.109.140.0/23. As per the viewpoint of Kiravuo, Sarela & Manner (2013), Variable length Subnet Masks (VLSMs) help to allow the various masks for different sub net. The VLSM is used for developing the larger subnet in time of preparing the LAN network. The subnet needs to be long. It can access more than 255 host addresses. The example of VLSM is Net A of 330 hosts.
The Victoria University needs to develop the LAN network in the effective way as the experts can access the IP address in the appropriate manner. In time of addressing, subnetting is the effective part. As suggested by Parikh, Sidhu & Shami (2013), it provides permission to run multiple logical networks in one single class.
The subnet needs to connect with the router, as every device is able to receive internet connection. In the lab of Victoria University, the router, Cisco 2950/2960 series switches, has been used for getting the positive outcome. As only 20 computers are accessed through the server, it will provide speed to the users. As many computers are not connected with one server, it assists to give good speed in time of working.
The unused space is also seen in time of preparing the design of LAN network. As fibre optic link has been used for developing the network, it would be helpful to pass the data in the effective way. The strong router helps to complete the job in the effective way providing quick internet service. Therefore, Victoria University registers each system in time of designing the LAN network. The IT experts can track the computer using IP address at any time.
