Topics 1 Network Topology Cables and connectors Network Devices
Network Topologies 2 LANs and WANs - Geographical coverage LANs 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.
Network Topologies 3 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
Bus topology 4 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.
Bus Topology 5 AdvantagesDisadvantages Cheap and easy to implementNetwork disruption when computers are added or removed Require less cableA break in the cable will prevent all systems from accessing the network. Does not use any specialized network equipment. Difficult to troubleshoot.
Ring Topology 6 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.
Ring Topology 7 AdvantagesDisadvantages 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.
Star Topology 8 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
Star Topology 9 AdvantagesDisadvantages 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
Mesh Topology 10 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.
Mesh Topology 11 AdvantagesDisadvantages 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
Wireless networking 12 Do not require physical cabling Particularly useful for remote access for laptop users Eliminate cable faults and cable breaks. Signal interference and security issue.
Wireless networking 13 AdvantagesDisadvantages Allows for wireless remote accessPotential security issues associated with wireless transmissions Network can be expanded without disruption to current users Limited speed in comparison to other network topologies
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
Cabling and Connectors 15 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 todays application-intensive networks, Old 10Mbps is not enough, 100Mbps is very common and 1000Mbps is used too.
Network Media Cable-based media Coaxial 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
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)
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

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.
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
Fiber-optic cable Single mode 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.
Fiber-optic connectors MIC, Standard FDDI connector FC LC There are a variety of connectors and several ways of Connecting these connectors, such bayonet, snap-lock, and push-pull connectors. A couple here: SC duplex ST SC
Wireless media Three types: Radio wave Infrared Microwave Speeds of wireless solutions dont 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.

Hubs 32 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
Bridges 33 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
Bridges 34 Source Route 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..
Switches 35 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.
Switches 36 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.
Switch routing method 38 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
Switch Routing Method 39 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
Switch physical design 40 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
Switch and Transparent Bridging 41 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
Hub and switch cabling 44 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
Routers 46 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.
Routers and Layer 3 Switch 48 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
Gateways 50 Any device that translate one data format to another is called a gateway. Router Bridge Software Gateway and default gateway
CSU/DSU 51 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
Wireless access points 52 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.
Modems 53 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
Network cards 54 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
ISDN adapters 55 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.
System area network cards 56 Connecting computer systems in a cluster High-performance unit.
57 DeviceFunction/PurposeKey Points HubConnects devices on a twisted-pair network. A hub does not perform any tasks besides signal regeneration. SwitchConnects devices on a twisted-pair network. A switch forwards data to its destination by using the MAC address embedded in each packet. BridgeDivides networks to reduce overall network traffic. A bridge allows or prevents data from passing through it by reading the MAC address. RouterConnects networks together.A router uses the software-configured network address to make forwarding decisions. GatewayTranslates from one data format to another. Gateways can be hardware or software based. Any device that translates data formats is called a gateway. CSU/DSUTranslates 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 cardEnables 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. WAPProvides 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. ModemProvides 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.
MAC addresses 58 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
