CSCI 690 2 Major sources of the slides for this lecture Some of the Slides used in this lecture are from Tanenbaum’s and William Stallings’ websites K. Kazi Optical Networking Standards: A Comprehensive Guide for Professionals Larry L. Peterson & Bruce S. Davie, Computer Networks: A Systems Approach
CSCI 690 3 Course Outline This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals and the applications of data communications networks. Network architectures, topology, protocols, network services and models will be discussed. Some of the protocols the course will cover are: Protocols based on Internet Protocol (IP) (Layer 3 and above) Routing fundamentals and protocols within IP Network (Layer 3 and above) Ethernet (10/100 Mb/s, 1/10/100(??) Gb/s Ethernet) (LAN, Metro and Wide Area Networks) Synchronous Optical Networks (SONET) (Wide Area Network) Optical Transport Hierarchy (OTH) (Wide Area Network) MultiProtocol Label Switching (MPLS) (Layer 2.5) Switching and routing architectures will be presented (Hardware/Software implementation architectures) Time permitting we will cover some aspects of Cellular Networking and Next Generation Network Architecture (NGN) (Time permitting) Services provided by various networks (Time permitting) Network Security (Time permitting) OPNET (a premier network simulator) maybe be used in simulating various aspects of networking concepts.
CSCI 690 4 Grading Policy Assignments & short quizzes 30% 1 Midterm Test 30% Final Project 40% Final Projects will be in any topic of interest within the Data Networking field There will be an Oral presentation of the project along with a written report Class participation can sway the grade (so highly encouraged, don’t be shy to ASK questions) NYIT’s Academic Integrity policy will be strictly enforced. Any student found to be cheating (in the assignments, quizzes, Midterm etc.) will get a straight “F”
CSCI 690 5 Do’s and Don’ts for the Final Project DO NOT use any report / design from the net. I will know if you did!! Properly referenced work that is not plagiarized is acceptable Most of it should be your work!! Select the topic that interests you. Be creative in it ! Designing some aspect in software or hardware will be highly encouraged as opposed to doing an overview/report on some networking technology By mid semester have a good idea of your project Team of 2 students working on the same project is allowed. Each team member’s task within the project should be explicitly defined.
CSCI 690 6 Intended Results at the Culmination of the Course You should have a good understanding of networking technologies Ability to implement (in software) varied networking protocols Should be able to architecturally design various components of the diverse networks Design of a router/switching Network Element Protocol Handling/protocol stacks Line Cards Switch Fabrics Have a good understanding of various WAN/MAN/LAN Technologies Ability to figure out which aspect is implemented in hardware and what is designed in the software

CSCI 690 10 Standards Organizations: 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. The IETF Mission Statement is documented in RFC3935.
CSCI 690 11 Standards Organizations: IEEE 802 Standards The 802 working groups. The important ones are marked with *. The ones marked with are hibernating. The one marked with † gave up.
CSCI 690 12 Implication of the Designs we work on; keep few things in mind! During the design process we always make trade-offs Trade-offs can be based on time to market, cost implications, complexity, environmental considerations etc. Ethics: Keep in mind the implications of what you are designing, how it impacts the society!! Privacy vs. Security is a big issue in networking Network designs inherently deal with Implementing of standardized solutions based on regional or global standards developed by industry forums or international standards organizations Power consumption considerations: Making the Designs Green; Environmental friendly!! Especially true for Data Centers, cell sites and cellular networking infrastructure etc. IEEE 802.3AZ working group has defined Energy Efficient Ethernet PHY specification Cost/performance trade-offs

CSCI 690 21 Methods to Save Energy Reduce Link Rate Can (and does) save energy Some NICs drop link rate when a laptop is battery powered – Or, when a PC goes into sleep state Turns-off PHY if no signal on link Match the link rate to utilization High utilization = high link rate Low utilization = low link rate Currently implemented using auto-negotiation Set the Technology ability bits/message codes and then reset the link Takes about 1000 milliseconds (a loooooooong time)
CSCI 690 22 Methods to Save Energy Need for fast transitions Need for fast transitions Can extend the benefits of link data rate reduction By making the data rate transition faster Need a faster way than auto-negotiation When I need high data rate, I need it now Can’t advertise the desire to change to a higher speed Need a mechanism that is transparent to upper layers Need a standard mechanism to rapidly transition: From low to high data rate From high to low data rate Within the capabilities established by Auto Negotiation IEEE Working Group 802.3AZ has developed the Energy Efficient Ethernet PHY specification
