1 Chapter 4 Internet Architecture

2 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 2 OVERVIEW What is a Network? IP Addresses Networks Information Transfer Cable Types Key Components of a Network Factors in Designing a Network Network Management System Internet Architecture

3 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 3 WHAT IS A NETWORK? A connection between at least two computers for the purpose of sharing resources Types: –Local Area Networks (LANs) –Wide Area Networks (WANs) –Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs) Internet Architecture: What is a Network?

4 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 4 PEER-TO-PEER NETWORK Computers linked together as equals No centralized control Share resources on the same network in any way & at any time Promotes institutionalized chaos < 10 computers Internet Architecture: What is a Network?

5 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 5 PEER-TO-PEER NETWORK (CONT.) Benefits –Easy to install/configure –Inexpensive –Users able to control their own resources –Independent from a dedicated server –No need for a network administrator Drawbacks –Security problems –Performance suffers when a computer is accessed –Difficult to have backup –Decentralized logon passwords –No centralized data management Internet Architecture: What is a Network?

6 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 6 CLIENT/SERVER NETWORK Server – designed to address a clients request Client – any computer connected to the server within a network Allow authorized user to access any programs/application residing on the server Internet Architecture: What is a Network?

7 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 7 CLIENT/SERVER NETWORK (Contd) Benefits –Centralized security control –Simpler network administration than peer-to- peer network –Centralized password –More scalable –Ideal for computers that are apart Drawbacks –Network failure = clients are helpless –Specialized staff are needed –Higher costs Internet Architecture: What is a Network?

8 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 8 IP ADDRESSES A host number to identify itself to other hosts Consists of strings of 32 bits E.g = Host Name –Human-friendly Internet addresses –E.g. ema3z.mcintire.virginia.edu Internet Architecture: IP Addresses

9 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 9 NETWORKS Network vs. Local Networks are classified by three sizes: Internet Architecture: Networks ClassBeginning Bit Bits in remainder of network part # of bits in local part Max. # of networks Max. # of hosts in network A million B ,00065,000 C million254

10 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 10 NETWORKS (Contd) Zones –Three-letter kind (com, gov, edu) –Two-letter kind (ca, uk, jp) –New general-purpose zones (firm, store) Internet Architecture: Networks

11 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 11 INFORMATION TRANSFER Packet –Grouping of data for transmission on a network –Large messages are split into a series of packets for transmission Protocol –A rule governing how communication should be conducted –Internet Protocol Set of rules used to pass packets Internet Architecture: Information Transfer

12 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 12 INFORMATION TRANSFER (Contd) Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) –A layered approach to networking –Each layer handles a different portion of the communication process Internet Architecture: Information Transfer

13 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 13 OSI REFERENCE MODEL Internet Architecture: Information Transfer LayerInfo TransactedTCP/IP Protocols ApplicationApplication messagesHTTP, FTP, SNMP PresentationCompressed data SessionSession messages TransportMultiple packetsTCP NetworkPacketsIP Data LinkFramesEthernet, PPP PhysicalBitsWiring, cables

14 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 14 OSI REFERENCE MODEL (Contd) Application Layer –Defines requests & response formats –Standard: HTTP Governs requests & response between browser & web server application program Other standards: SMTP, POP HTML-compatible –File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), Domain Name Service (DNS) Internet Architecture: Information Transfer

15 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 15 OSI REFERENCE MODEL (Contd) Presentation Layer –Converts data into a format the receiving application can understand Session Layer –Exchanges data for the duration of session –Keeps track of the status of exchange –Ensures only designated parties are allowed to participate in the session –Enforces security protocols for controlling access Internet Architecture: Information Transfer

16 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 16 OSI REFERENCE MODEL (Contd) Transport Layer –Manages the transmission of data across a network –Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) Specifies how two host computers will work together Flow control Sequence assurance Reliability & integrity Internet Architecture: Information Transfer

17 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 17 OSI REFERENCE MODEL (Contd) Internet Layer –Routes messages across multiple nodes for delivery –Handles network congestion to minimize performance problems –Internet Protocol (IP) Standard for routing packets Internet Architecture: Information Transfer

18 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 18 OSI REFERENCE MODEL (Contd) Data Link Layer –Packages data into frames for delivery –Point-to-point (PPP) Framing – mark boundary between packets Error detection –Ethernet Physical Layer –Converts bits into signals for outgoing messages & signals into bits for incoming messages Internet Architecture: Information Transfer

19 Awad –Electronic Commerce 1/e © 2002 Prentice Hall 19 CABLE TYPES Twisted-Pair Cable Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) Shielded Twisted Pair (STP) Optical Fiber Coaxial Cable Wireless Technology Internet Architecture: Cable Types
