LO1 Examine networking principles and their protocols.
LO2 Explain networking devices and operations
University Grants Commission (UGC) of Bangladesh, On behalf of the Ministry of Education (MoE), is currently implementing the Bangladesh Research and Education Network (BdREN) under HEQEP with assistance from World Bank. It will be a high performance data Communications network providing connectivity among education and research institutions in both public and private sectors.
BdREN with its multi-gigabit capability aims to connect all universities, research institutions, libraries, laboratories, healthcare and agricultural institutions across the country and to support geographically dispersed academics, scientists and researchers with reliable access to high-end computing, simulation tools and datasets. With a view to implementing the BdREN backbone, recently UGC has made an IRU contract with Power Grid Company of Bangladesh (PGCB) Ltd. for its country-wide OPGW network. Backbone network of BdREN will be designed based on this optical fiber.
BdREN will also be connected with other regional and trans-continental Research and Education Networks (RENs) (e.g., TEIN3). It will link the faculties and students of Bangladesh to the global academic community and learning resources. It will also facilitate international collaborative research and will catalyze innovation in the country. BdREN will eventually be operated by a Non-profit Trust organization with a board of trustees consisting of representatives from the universities/user communities, UGC, MoE and other members co-opted for their expertise and position in relevant organizations.
South Korean Company Samsung got the contract this project to implement. For this purpose Samsung recruited a cluster of networking and telecommunication engineers. You have joined as a junior network engineer. Samsung expects that you have adequate knowledge about networking principles and their protocols, networking devices and operations. Moreover, you are capable to solve some networking problem and simulate some applications.

Tasks (Covering LO1 and LO2; Grading Criteria: P1, P2, P3, M1, M2 and D1)
There are a lots of networking types and standards using for networking solution mentioned above. Discuss the benefits and constraints of different types of network and standards [P1].
You have to rearrange the networking devices to meet the requirements. Now explain the impact of networking topology, communication and bandwidth requirements for the networking problem [P2].
Compare common networking principles and how protocols enable the effectiveness of networking systems [M1].
a) You are going to use different networking devices like Switches, Routers, Servers and Firewalls having different networking operating systems. Discuss the operating principles and networking devices and server types [P3].
b) Networks connect to the workstation's memory bus, which provides a low-latency, high-bandwidth interface. The importance of hardware synchronization is magnified by longer network latencies. This is because software synchronization requires many (slower) messages, causing synchronization time to low. Discuss the interdependence of workstation hardware with relevant networking software’s [P4].
c) Samsung wants to setup a secure networking for file sharing, printer server, as well as the mail server for its internal employees. Explore a range of server types and justify the selection of server regarding the cost and performance optimisation [M2].
d) For the above scenario, identify the topology protocol selected for effective utilisation of the networking system [D1].
You have to produce a report answering the above questions.
a) Check for Plagiarism of your written document, your document should not have more than 15% Plagiarism. Attach the Plagiarism report with the submitted document.
b) The suggested software for checking the plagiarism is “duplichecker”; if you have any other software that can check the plagiarism of the document then you may use so.
c) Proper referencing (Harvard Style) is expected in the assignment.
d) Document should have Table of Contents, Header, Footer, Page No., page border etc.
e) Soft copy emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with RQFUNIT2 as subject line and your name/id in the body of the email. (File format must be .pdf and file name should be student_id_NETWOKING.pdf. For example: 2017341114_NETWORKING.pdf)
f) Copied documents are strictly prohibited. If you are planning to do so, please no need to submit. There is no chance for re-submission. So, think twice before you submit your assignment.
