1 Computer and Data Communications Semester Mohd Nazri Mahmud

2  Course overview  Teaching  Lecturers  Assessment  Resources  Software Tools  Syllabus  Lesson Plan  Background Survey  Grouping

3  Pre-requisite for this course:  Knowledge of undergraduate level course on Computer Networks  Those who have not acquired the fundamentals are advised to read the recommended books  Objectives of the course:  To learn the theoretical and practical issues relating to the-state-of-the-art on computer and data communication network  Learning Methods:  In-class Problem Based Discussion (PBD) sessions  In-lab Group Experiential Learning (GEL) sessions

4  Lecturers:  En. Mohd Nazri Mahmud,  Room : 2.14  Dr Kamal Zamli,  Room : 3.22

5  Theoretical and Problem-based discussion (PBD)  Students are advised on topics to be covered and preparatory readings and questions are assigned prior to lecture session  Lecturer and students discuss topics interactively based on the preparatory questions  Students take their own notes during discussion  Group Experiential Learning (GEL)  Students carry out modeling, simulation and performance analysis of protocols in groups of 3-5 students  Groups share their findings in class  Group project

6  60% Final Exam  40 % Coursework; 20% from each lecturer  20% Coursework from En. Nazri’s part consists of 5% Test - Individual 5% Assignment – Individual and In group 10% Project - Group Group work Group Experiential Learning(GEL) and Project (10%) Group Paper presentation (2.5%) Individual work Individual Test – 5 % Individual Written Assignment and Paper review assignment - 2.5%

7  Reference books  Main textbook: Data Communications and Networking 4 th Edition by Behrouz A. Forouzan, McGraw Hill  Journal Papers  Survey papers for group presentation  Research papers for individual paper review assignment  A list of papers will be provided for selection  Supporting resources  Can be downloaded from my academic webpage:  Supporting Slides  Reading handouts  Preparatory questions  Lab sheets

8  OPNET IT Guru Academic Edition  Extensively use throughout the first 7 weeks for modelling, simulation and performance analysis of protocols  Must be individually downloaded  Free from OPNET’s website ademic_edition/  Try out the tutorial for quick familirisation before the first lab session

9  Data Link Layer of the TCP/IP networks  Contention-based Medium Access Control for wired and wireless networks  Performance Analysis of the Wired and Wireless Ethernet  Medium Access Control for Emerging Wireless Networks (based on group paper presentation and individual paper review)  Network Layer of the TCP/IP networks  Internetworking: Addressing, Forwarding  Routing Protocols: RIP, OSPF and BGP  Multicasting

10 Week 1Lesson Plan 20/2 Session 1a 21/2 Session 1b Course Introduction and briefing Survey of students background Grouping Distribute list of papers for group and individual selection Distribute preparatory readings and questions: TCP/IP, MACs and LANs. Review the TCP/IP layered architecture via an open book group quiz Data Link Layer discussions focusing on Medium Access Control based on preparatory questions, LANs and the Ethernet based on preparatory questions

11 Week 2Lesson Plan 27/2 Session 2a Group Experiential Learning 1: OPNET basic tutorial Modelling, Simulation and Performance Analysis of IEEE Ethernet and MAC. 28/2 Session 2b Group Experiential Learning 1-– continue work from Lab session 1

12 Week 3Lesson Plan 5/3 Session 3a Reflection for Lab work from Session 2a and b via selected group results presentation Discussion on CSMA/CA and IEEE MAC protocol based on preparatory readings and questions 6/3 Session 3b Session 3b: Group Experiental Learning 2: Modelling, simulation and performance analysis of IEEE MAC protocol

13 Week 4Lesson Plan 12/3 Session 4a Reflection for Lab work from Session 3b via results presentation by selected groups Group Presentation on Survey paper for MACs for other wireless networks 13/3 Session 4b Continue Group Presentation on Survey paper for MACs for other wireless networks.

14 Week 5Lesson Plan 19/3 Session 5a Discussion on the Network Layer, Internetworking based on Group Quiz Addressing, Forwarding, Unicast Routing based on preparatory readings and questions 20/3 Session 5b Session 4b: Lab work and assignment on Unicast Routing Protocols

15 Week 6,7Plan 26/3 Session 6a 27/3 Session 6b Session 5a: Reflection for Lab work from Session 5b Multicasting Labwork on Network Designs and Group Project 7 2/4 Session 7a 3/4 Session 7b Overall review Individual Test on theories and practice 8Continue with the TCP and Application Layer with Dr. Kamal

16  No of students who have taken related UG courses  Examples of UG courses  Detail survey via questionaires

17

18  Preparatory readings for Session 1b – First part  Read textbook 1, Chapter 2:  Students with no background are advised to read the whole of Ch 2  Prepare for group open book quiz  Quiz will focus on Section 2.3 Layers and 2.4 The TCP/IP protocol suite and prepare for group quiz  Preparatory reading for Session 1b – Second part  Read textbook Chapter 12: 12.1 Random Access, Chapter 13: Ethernet focus on 13.1 MAC Frames  Read Preparatory notes for Interconnecting LANs  Attempt preparatory questions  Prepare for participation in class
