1 Topics Network Topology Cables and connectors Network Devices

2 Network Topologies LANs and WANs - Geographical coverage LANs WANs
A single geographical location, such as office building, school, etc Typically High speed and cheaper. WANs Spans more than one geographical location often connecting separated LANs Slower Costly hardware, routers, dedicated leased lines and complicated implementation procedures.

3 Network Topologies Topology - Physical and logical network layout
Physical – actual layout of the computer cables and other network devices Logical – the way in which the network appears to the devices that use it. Common topologies: Bus, ring, star, mesh and wireless

4 Bus topology Uses a trunk or backbone to which all of the computers on the network connect. Systems connect to this backbone using T connectors or taps. Coaxial cablings ( 10Base-2, 10Base5) were popular options years ago.

5 Bus Topology Advantages Disadvantages Cheap and easy to implement
Network disruption when computers are added or removed Require less cable A break in the cable will prevent all systems from accessing the network. Does not use any specialized network equipment. Difficult to troubleshoot.

6 Ring Topology Logical ring
Meaning that data travels in circular fashion from one computer to another on the network. Typically FDDI, SONET or Token Ring technology are used to implement a ring network Ring networks are most commonly wired in a star configuration Token Ring has multi-station access unit (MSAU),equivalent to hub or switch. MSAU performs the token circulation internally. To create the complete ring, the Ring In (RI) port on each MASU is connected to the Ring Out (RO) port an another MSAU. The last MASU in the ring is then connected to the first, to complete the ring. FDDI: Fiber Distributed Data Interface

7 Ring Topology Advantages Disadvantages
Cable faults are easily located, making troubleshooting easier Expansion to the network can cause network disruption Ring networks are moderately easy to install A single break in the cable can disrupt the entire network.

8 Star Topology All computers/devices connect to a central device called hub or switch. Each device requires a single cable point-to-point connection between the device and hub. Most widely implemented Hub is the single point of failure

9 Star Topology Advantages Disadvantages
Easily expanded without disruption to the network Requires more cable Cable failure affects only a single user A central connecting device allows for a single point of failure Easy to troubleshoot and isolate problems More difficult to implement

10 Mesh Topology Each computer connects to every other.
High level of redundancy. Rarely used. Wiring is very complicated Cabling cost is high Troubleshooting a failed cable is tricky A variation hybrid mesh – create point to point connection between specific network devices, often seen in WAN implementation.

11 Mesh Topology Advantages Disadvantages
Provides redundant paths between devices Requires more cable than the other LAN topologies The network can be expanded without disruption to current uses Complicated implementation

12 Wireless networking Do not require physical cabling
Particularly useful for remote access for laptop users Eliminate cable faults and cable breaks. Signal interference and security issue.

13 Wireless networking Advantages Disadvantages
Allows for wireless remote access Potential security issues associated with wireless transmissions Network can be expanded without disruption to current users Limited speed in comparison to other network topologies

14 Cabling and Connectors
General media considerations Broadband versus baseband Baseband transmissions use digital signaling and Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) Broadband transmissions use analog and Frequency Division Multiplexing(FDM) Dialog modes: Simplex, half duplex and full duplex EMI: is a problem when cables are installed near electrical devices, such as air conditions or fluorescent light fixtures. Crosstalk: refers to how the data signals on two separate media interfere with each other.

15 Cabling and Connectors
Media interference Electromagnetic interference (EMI) and cross talk Network media vary in their resistance to the effect of EMC. UTP is susceptible and fiber is resistant Attenuation Resistance :Coaxial cable > UTP, STP > UTP, Fiber > all Maximum distance Repeaters Attenuation-related problems require a network analyzer to detect Bandwidth Transmission capacity of a media Data throughput is measured in bits per second(bps), Mbps, and Gbps For today’s application-intensive networks, Old 10Mbps is not enough, 100Mbps is very common and 1000Mbps is used too.

16 Network Media Cable-based media Coaxial Twisted pair Fiber-optic
Copper wire to conduct the signals electronically Was the choice for LAN for many years. Retiring Twisted pair Copper wire to conduct too Most widely used Fiber-optic transmits the signals as light Uses glass or plastic conductor and High Cost. Restricted to where segment length and higher speeds are needed. Server room, backbone Carry signals between computers: Cable-based media and wireless networking.

17 Twisted-pair cabling Has been around for a long time
Created for voice transmissions Most widely used media for networking Lighter More flexible Easier to install Cheaper Greater speeds Two types: Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) Shielded twisted pair (STP)

18 Twisted-pair cabling UTP is more commonplace STP
provides the extra shielding by using an insulating material wrapped around the wire Greater resistance to EMI and attenuation More cost

19 Five main categories Category Cable Types Application 1 UTP
Analog voice 2 Digital voice, 1Mbps data 3 UTP, STP 16Mbps data 4 20Mbps data 5, 5e Data, 100Mbps, 1G 6, 6e Data, 1G, 10G

20 RJ-45 connectors RJ-45 are used with twisted-pair cabling.
Resemble ordinary phone jacks (RJ-11) Eight wires instead of four Larger. Check out this page for how to make cat5 cable. Cat6

21 Fiber-optic cable Use light transmissions
EMI, crosstalk and attenuation become no issue. Well suited for data, video and voice transmissions Most secure of all cable media Installation and maintenance procedures require skills Cost of cable Cost of retrofitting of existing network equipment because incompatible with most electronic network equipment

22 Fiber-optic cable Single mode fiber: Multimode fiber:
A single direct bean of light, allowing for greater distances and increased transfer speeds. Multimode fiber: Many beams of light travel through the cable This strategy weakens the signal, reducing the length and speed the data signal can travel.

23 Fiber-optic connectors
There are a variety of connectors and several ways of Connecting these connectors, such bayonet, snap-lock, and push-pull connectors. A couple here: FC MIC, Standard FDDI connector ST LC SC duplex SC

24 Wireless media Three types:
Radio wave Infrared Microwave Speeds of wireless solutions don’t keep pace with cable solutions Installation and maintenance are far more complicated and costly. Some solutions require line-of-sight, such as infrared and microwave.

25 IEEE standards IEEE standards defines a range of networking systems that are bases on the original Ethernet standard.

Color codes In the world of structured cabling systems the cryptic number 568 refers to the order in which the individual wires inside a CAT 5 cable are terminated. The termination could come at either the user’s end socket, the patch panel or termination frame or even the individual leads that connect a computer to the wall socket. There are currently two different specifications with respect to the order these cables should be terminated contained in the international standards document (ISO/IEC 11801:1995) as previously mentioned there is no indication as to which of these standards is preferred.

29 Pin Number Designations There are pin number designations for each color in T568B The pin designations are as follows: Color Codes for T568B Pin color pair name wh/or 2 TxData + 2 or 2 TxData – 3 wh/grn 3 RecvData+ 4 blu 1 5 wh/blu 1 6 grn 3 RecvData- 7 wh/brn 4 8 brn 4

31 Networking Devices repeaters Hubs Switches Bridges Routes Gateways
Network Interface Cards (NICs) Wireless access points Modems Punch_down panels Slelecting devices:

32 Hubs The bottom of the networking food chain
Connect device and create larger networks Small hubs 5-8 ports (workgroup hubs) Some hubs have more ports, up to 32 normally Direct data packets to all devices connected to the hub - shared bandwidth animation Scalability, Collision, inefficient

33 Bridges Divide larger networks into smaller sections
Check MAC address, forward or block the data Learning bridge builds list of MAC address by watching the traffic on the network. Two issues to consider: Placement 80/20 rule Bridging loops IEEE 802.1d Spanning tree protocol Types of bridges Transparent bridge Source route bridge Translational bridge Transparent bridge: forward or block based on MAC Source route bridge: Used in Token ring network. The entire path is embedded within the packet. Translational bridge: convert one networking data format to another.

34 Bridges Source Route Bridge . Translational bridge
Used in Token Ring networks. The entire path (ring number and bridge number) is embedded within Packet Search frame Route discovery frame Translational bridge Used to convert one networking data format to another. For example, from Token Ring to Ethernet and vice versa. .

35 Switches Like hub, connectivity points of Ethernet network
Forward only to the port that connects to the destination device knows MAC address Match the MAC address in the data it receives. Fully switched network, a dedicated segment for each device is connected to switch. Expensive.

36 Switches Allow full duplex Ethernet
Nodes only communicate with switch, never directly to each other Use twisted pair or fiber optic cabling, using separate conductors for sending and receiving data. collision pair is used to transmit data It was half duplex before – one device can transmit at one given time, double the capacity, 100Mbps become 200Mbps Most LAN are mixed with hubs and switches.


38 Switch routing method Packet-based switches use one of the following method to route packet. Cut-through Forward as soon as it received the destination MAC – first 14 bytes Can cause propagation of error Store-and-forward Error checked before being forwarded Errors are not propagated through network Bad frames are discarded Error checking takes time. Considerably slower

39 Switch Routing Method FragmentFree Take the advantage of both.
Check errors by reading the first 64byte of packets where collision most likely happens Offer near cut-through switching performance

40 Switch physical design
LAN switches vary in their physical design Shared-memory Common buffer for all ports Matrix Internal grid with input port and output crossing each other First check MAC, then switch makes a connection where two ports (input/output) intersect Bus-architecture Common-bus Dedicated buffer for each port and a circuit to control the bus access CASE: buffer overflow Our switch has a 2G buffer, it connected to all servers, including backup servers. Every night, about 2TB data being backed up. Network was too busy.

41 Switch and Transparent Bridging
Most LAN switches use transparent bridging to create address lookup tables Transparent bridging is a technology that allows a switch to learn everything it needs to know about the location of nodes on the network within the network administrator having to do anything. Has five parts: Learning Flooding Filtering Forwarding Aging



44 Hub and switch cabling To create larger networks, connect hubs and switches using Standard port with special cable Special ports with a standard cable Standard port - Medium Dependent Interface-Crossed (MDI-X) Two wires are crossed internally Medium Dependent Interface (MDI) To see each other as an extension, no signal to be crossed Using crossover cable between two MDI-X ports To uncross the internal crossing

46 Routers Create larger networks by joining two networks segments.
Dedicated hardware device or computer systems with more than one network interface and routing software. Routing table Static routing Dynamic routing Use special routing protocols to pass info to other routers. Distance Vector Routing (RIP) Link state routing (OSPF)

47 Switch and Router Different with router
Typically switch works on lower level (Data link Layer) while Router works in higher level (Network Layer) Algorithms for router and switch about how to forward packers are different For example, switch will forward broadcast, so does hub, not router- the address has to be specific.

48 Routers and Layer 3 Switch
While most switches operate at the Data link layer(layer2), some incorporate features of a router and operate at the network layer (layer3). Layer 3 switches are faster because they are build on “switching” hardware a router is needed for VLANS communication Why not build a router in the switch itself and do the forwarding in hardware EX: IP forwarding – all in hardware Route lookup Decrement the Time to Live (TTL) Recalculation the checksum Forward the frame the frame to correct output port Can layer 3 switch replace router? No. Layer 3 is good for workgroup and the backbone within an enterprise. But most likely will not replace the router at the edge of the WAN. Routers perform numerous other functions like filtering with access lists, BGP, and so on.


50 Gateways Any device that translate one data format to another is called a gateway. Router Bridge Software Gateway and default gateway

51 CSU/DSU Channel Server Unit/Digital Service Unit ( CSU/DSU) or Data Service Unit Convert digital format on LAN into signal used on WAN Sit between LAN and access point provided by telecom company Many routers have CSU/DSU functionality

52 Wireless access points
Devices that provide connectivity between wireless LAN devices and in most cases a wired network. Antennae Convert signal from radio wave or other to that used on the LANs. Small wlan can function without access point in so-called “ad hoc” or peer to peer mode,. Access points support “infrastructure” mode, which bridges with a wired Ethernet land and also scales the network to support more clients.

53 Modems Modulator/Demodulator, convert digital signal generated by computer into analog signals that can travel over conventional phone line. Connect to ISP Dialing up to a LAN Internal add-in expansion cards or external devices connect to serial or USB port PCMCIA cards for laptop Speed Modem itself Speed of the Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter (UART) chip, UART has the speed of 921,600kbp

54 Network cards Called Network Interface Cards (NIC)
Attached to external port PC card Internal Network card System bus compatibility Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) Industry Standard Architecture (ISA) System Resources – device conflict Media compatibility Twisted pair, coaxial or fiber-optic connection? Driver

55 ISDN adapters Integrated Services Digital Networking (ISDN) is a remote access and WAN technology that can be used in place of a Plain old telephone systems dial-up link Greater speeds than modem, pick up and drop the line considerable faster. Require ISDN terminal adapter Although digital signal, different format with the those used on LAN. Create multiple communication channels on a single line.

56 System area network cards
Connecting computer systems in a cluster High-performance unit.

57 Device Function/Purpose Key Points Hub Connects devices on a twisted-pair network. A hub does not perform any tasks besides signal regeneration. Switch A switch forwards data to its destination by using the MAC address embedded in each packet. Bridge Divides networks to reduce overall network traffic. A bridge allows or prevents data from passing through it by reading the MAC address. Router Connects networks together. A router uses the software-configured network address to make forwarding decisions. Gateway Translates from one data format to another. Gateways can be hardware or software based. Any device that translates data formats is called a gateway. CSU/DSU Translates digital signals used on a LAN to those used on a WAN. CSU/DSU functionality is sometimes incorporated into other devices, such as a router with a WAN connection. Network card Enables systems to connect to the network. Network interfaces can be add-in expansion cards, PCMCIA cards, or built-in interfaces. ISDN terminal adapter Connects devices to ISDN lines. ISDN is a digital WAN technology often used in place of slower modem links. ISDN terminal adapters are required to reformat the data format for transmission on ISDN links. System area network card Used in server clusters to provide connectivity between nodes. System area network cards are high-performance devices capable of coping with the demands of clustering applications. WAP Provides network capabilities to wireless network devices. A WAP is often used to connect to a wired network, thereby acting as a link between wired and wireless portions of the network. Modem Provides serial communication capabilities across phone lines. Modems modulate the digital signal into analog at the sending end and perform the reverse function at the receiving end.

58 MAC addresses Unique 6-byte address burned info network interface, expressed in hexadecimal No matter which protocol is used, MAC address is the means by which the network interface is identified on the network. IEEE managing MAC address assignment IEEE has a system Identifying the manufacturer by looking at the MAC address Discover MAC address, depend on the OS Ifconfig /all on WINDOWs NT/2000 Ifconfig –a on Linux/UNIX
