4 © 2006, Monash University, Australia Subject Aims Introduction to the design and management of networks. 1. The critical factors involved in designing and managing a network; 2. How to undertake analysis, design, and management of computer communications networks, taking into account the Australian communications environment. Emphasis will be on: A. developing an understanding of the underlying factors which affect network behaviour and client satisfaction; B. appropriate and sensible use of design rules rather than on their derivation; and C. an appreciation of the relationships between client's desires and the realities of implementation.

7 © 2006, Monash University, Australia Performance criteria vs user requirements and expectations What is a communications link? Types of links? What is a network? Types of networks? What the network designer/network manager sees What the end user sees What the end user’s manager sees Measures of network performance Common problem issues for networks Reconciling the physical reality with user expectations

8 © 2006, Monash University, Australia Circuit vs Packet Switch Network Concepts Historical evolution of network technologies Circuit switched networks analogue vs digital Structure of circuit switched networks Topology of circuit switched networks Design issues in circuit switched networks Packet Switch networks Catenet model Structure of packet switched networks Topology of packet switched networks Design issues in packet switched networks Hybrid networks Futures issues – VoIP, fibre, wireless, ad hoc WAN, MAN, SAHN, LAN and other networks.

9 © 2006, Monash University, Australia Design Strategies What is the basic networking technology used? What is the characteristic topology? What is the cabling or wireless link technology? Limitations vs Strengths? How do I design a network? 1. Identify constraints – user needs, budgets, technology 2. What legacy infrastructure can I exploit – cables etc? 3. Top down approach – model loads vs performance to define link / switch / router capacities 4. Design for evolution – project future growth and upgrades. 5. Design for maintainability, reliability, supportability
