NETWORK ENGINEERING FUNDAMENTALS

CSE2NFX

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, we introduce the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. The subject also covers OSI and TCP/IP layer models to examine the nature and roles of protocols and services at the application, network, data link, and physical layers. The fundamentals of IP addressing and basic concepts of Ethernet will also be studied.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Describe the overall Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model and how layers interact with adjacent layers in the model.

Activities:
Webinar presentation and open discussions about the various layers of interconnection of the OSI model. Self-checking open-ended questions to support the activities.

02. Identify functions of each OSI layer and apply this knowledge to build a Network.

Activities:
Practical activity to build a network using Cisco packet tracer (virtual environment).

03. Describe the evolution of Local Area Network (LAN) technology with focus on Ethernet.

Activities:
Webinar with open discussion forums. Knowledge assessed via online quizzes and self-paced online problems.

04. Apply appropriate network physical standards for different network scenarios.

Activities:
Practical activity using Cisco packet tracer (virtual environment).

05. Describe TCP/IP based network protocol suite and compare with OSI model.

Activities:
Webinars and discussion forums with self-paced online problems.
