Assignment Description

The School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at University of Leeds, Leeds UK had gone through a partial renovation. The school has five floors. The first three floors were recently renovated. Now, according to new layout, the ground floor has a reception room with five desks, foyer for students, and a lecture hall. The first floor has a computer cluster with fifty PCs, a Basic Electronics Laboratory with 20 workstations with computer facility, a lecture hall, and five staff offices. The second Floor has two research laboratories for PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. The Research Laboratory-1 has twelve desks and the research Laboratory-2 has fifteen desks. This floor also has six staff offices and a meeting room. All desks (at reception, laboratories, offices), lecture halls need two data points each to connect to the internet. Every floor needs a wireless connectivity to enable the students and staff to connect to the Internet. 

The school now requires a new LAN architecture for these floors. Further, the new LAN has also to connect with the LAN setup of other floors. Imagine you are the network manager of the school and you are required to write a report with the following sections:

A.    An introduction section

B.     To address the interoperability issue for seamless connectivity to each floor you must discuss the OSI layered architecture, its history, the functioning of each layer 

C.     Comparison of the OSI protocol suite with the TCP/IP protocol suite

D.    Explain the protocols working at OSI layers, their functionalities, and their standardising bodies

E.     This LAN network requires both wired and wireless connectivity. Provide a comparative analysis of appropriateness of different media types which may be used to enable network connectivity.

F.      A summary section

G.    References must follow IEEE Transaction on networking style. 


Marking Criteria for the Assignment 1:

Marks are allocated as described in the following table.
