1 Internet Infrastructure © N. Ganesan, Ph.D.

2 Chapter Objectives Bring together in perspective various components of the Internet –Network Infrastructure –Communication Infrastructure –Organizations and groups that set standards

3 Module Network Infrastructure: Hardware and Access Infrastructure

4 Evolution Started as ARPANET Grew with the introduction of PCs, LANs and WANs CCITT (now ITU) was the initial standard setting organization Lower level protocols was X.25 Higher level protocol was TCP/IP that followed the initial introduction of the Network Control Protocol (NCP)

5 Current Trend Global network based on high speed fiber lines IPV4 is being replaced by IPv6 X.25, Frame Relay etc. are being replaced with ATM

6 Hardware Infrastructure The hardware infrastructure now is essentially a hierarchy of interconnected networks –Local –Departmental –Campus or Enterprise –Wide Area

7 Networking and Internetworking Devices Hubs –Layer 1 devices Switches –Mostly Layer 2 devices Routers –Layer 3 devices

8 Connection to the Internet Example

9 LA Fiber Connection Hierarchy Source:

10 Internet National Connection Example (Cogent Communications)

11 Internet Global Connection Example (MCI)

12 Major Digital Line Types Lower speed access point –DSL –ISDN High network connections –T1, T3 etc. –OC3, OC12 etc.

13 Digital Lines and Speeds LineSpeed DS064Kpbs ISDN128 Kbps (BRI)2 DSO (B channels) T11.544 Mbps24 DSO T343.232 Mbps28 T1 OC3155 Mbps100 T1 OC12622 Mbps4 OC3 OC482.5 Gbps4 OC12 OC1929.6 Gbps4 OC48 Source:

14 Speed Faster backbones are providing faster access to the Internet Internet2 is a joint venture project between many universities to develop a high-speed InternetInternet2 –This development, however, is very likely to be spearheaded by the industry given the commercial attractiveness of providing fast Internet access

15 High-Speed Internet (Abeline)

18 Internet Traffic Status in Asia Source:

19 Asia Traffic Index

20 Response Time to Asia

21 Packet Loss in Asia

22 Connection Hierarchy

23 Definition of Terms POP (Point of Presence) NAP (National Access Points) High-speed backbone network service

24 End of Module

25 Module Communication Infrastructure: The Protocols

26 Protocol of the Internet TCP/IP

27 IP Addressing 32-bit numbering system –Divided into network ID and host ID Grouped into Classes A, B, C, D and E –Classes A, B and C are the ones relevant to commercial use Several IP addresses have been reserved for private and other uses –Addresses used in Network Address Translation (NAT) –Addresses used of IP multicasting

28 TCP/IP Model

29 ISO/OSI Model

30 Mapping of the Models

31 Meeting the Demand for IP Addresses DHCP Network Address Translation (NAT) IPv6 Classless Inter Domain Routing (CIDR)

32 Some Application Layer Protocol HTTP, HTTPS FTP Telnet POP3 IMAP SMTP DNS DHCP SNMP X.500 LDAP For more info:

33 Transport Layer Protocols TCP UDP ICMP OSPF SPX NetBEUI SMB For more information access: –

34 Internet Layer Protocols IPv4, IPv6 ARP NWLink NetBEIU

35 Network Interface Layer Protocols Ethernet Token Ring IEEE 802.11x PPP X.25 FDDI Frame Relay ISDN ATM T and E carriers OC carriers xDSL Cable Modem

36 Some Popular Ports and Protocols 80 – HTTP –Web services 20/21 – FTP

37 Additional Port Information Extensive list of port numbers at IANA rt-numbers rt-numbers

38 Some Useful TCP/IP Commands ping ipconfig finger hostname nslookup tracert nbtstat netstat telnet ftp

39 Further Information on TCP/IP Commands In Windows XP help, search for “TCP/IP Utilities and Services” Access Garry Kessler’s manual at: – 51.pdf 51.pdf

40 End of Module

41 Module Domains and DNS Infrastructure

42 Top Level Domain (TLD) Extensions “There are two types of top-level domains, generic and country code, plus a special top-level domain (.arpa) for Internet infrastructure. Generic domains were created for use by the Internet public, while country code domains were created to be used by individual countries as they deemed necessary.” Source:

43 The Three Top-Level Domains Country Code Domains (.uk,.de,.jp,.us, etc.)Country Code Domains Generic Domains (.aero,.biz,.com,.coop,.edu,.gov,.info,.int,.mil,.museum,.name,.net,.org, Domains Infrastructure Domain (.arpa)Infrastructure Domain

44 Country Extensions whois.htm whois.htm

45 Domain Extensions Some prominent domain names –.com,.edu,.org, Some interesting newer domain names –.net,.pro

46 More Information on Domain Extensions Some useful information on qualifications, contact etc. can be obtained by navigating through the following IANA web link –

52 Module Internet Agencies

53 Important Internet Groups Internet Architecture Board (IAB) The Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG) The Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG) Internet Society (ISOC) Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA)

54 Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) “The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is a large open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet. It is open to any interested individual.” - IETF(IETF)

55 IETF Working Groups The actual technical work of the IETF is done in its working groups, which are organized by topic into several areas (e.g., routing, transport, security, etc.). The IETF holds meetings three times per year.” – IETF The IETF working groups are grouped into areas, and managed by Area Directors, or ADs. The ADs are members of the Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG). Providing architectural oversight is the Internet Architecture Board, (IAB). The IAB also adjudicates appeals when someone complains that the IESG has failed. The IAB and IESG are chartered by the Internet Society (ISOC) for these purposes. “IESGIAB(ISOC)

56 Functional Overview of IETF

57 Internet Society “The I nternet SOC iety (ISOC) is a professional membership society with more than 150 organization and 16,000 individual members in over 180 countries. It provides leadership in addressing issues that confront the future of the Internet, and is the organization home for the groups responsible for Internet infrastructure standards, including the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the Internet Architecture Board (IAB). “ - ISOC

58 Internet Architecture Board (IAB) “The IAB is chartered both as a committee of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and as an advisory body of the Internet Society (ISOC). Its responsibilities include architectural oversight of IETF activities, Internet Standards Process oversight and appeal, and the appointment of the RFC Editor. The IAB is also responsible for the management of the IETF protocol parameter registries.” – IAB

60 Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) (IANA) “The central coordinator for the assignment of unique parameter values for Internet protocols.” - IETF “It is chartered by the Internet Society (ISOC) to act as the clearinghouse to assign and coordinate the use of numerous Internet protocol parameters.” - IETF

61 Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) “The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is an internationally organized, non-profit corporation that has responsibility for Internet Protocol (IP) address space allocation, protocol identifier assignment, generic (gTLD) and country code (ccTLD) Top-Level Domain name system management, and root server system management functions. These services were originally performed under U.S. Government contract by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) and other entities. ICANN now performs the IANA function.” - ICANN
