Coursework Specification
This coursework is an individual assessment. The word limit is 1500.
The objective of this coursework is to independently conduct research in computer networks performance, to simulate a real IP network and to investigate its performance under different network conditions and various mechanisms and protocols used to route packets through networks.
Use the NetSim simulator for this project.
Detailed Specification
When designing a network, network architects need to consider a lot of parameters. From the network performance, the network usability, the network reliability and the network redundancy to security and disaster recovery. Predicting network performance is an open research area. The performance of a network can be measured, modelled or simulated. In this assignment you are invited to investigate the effect that routing protocols have on the performance of a wired network.
You will need to conduct a
ief literature review on the main routing protocols for wired networks, their functionality and operation. You should mainly concentrate on interior gateway protocols. You are then asked to simulate a network and implement 3 different routing protocols and critically compare them under normal operation and in the case of network failures. You are asked to write a
ief scientific paper (in the form of IEEE publication), following the template provided at the end of this document.
Please ensure you utilise high-quality references from journals to support your literature review and critical analysis and present them using Harvard Referencing. Some good sources for references are Google Scholar and IEEE Xplore, and specifically reputable publishers would be IEEE, ACM, Elsevier and Springer.
Tasks:
Part 1: Literature review on network routing protocols
A network requires many protocols collaborating together for delivering information in an efficient, reliable and secure way. Some of the most important protocols in networks are the ones used to select routes between any two nodes of a network, based on different criteria and by enabling communication between the routers of the network. Depending on the topology of the network, routers can communicate via interior gateway protocols or exterior gateway protocols.
Before building the network models described below, produce a literature review section on the main routing protocols for wired backbone networks, their functionality and operation. You should mainly concentrate on the most important interior gateway protocols. Ensure you utilise high-quality references from journals to support your literature review, using Harvard Referencing. Some good sources for references are Google Scholar and IEEE Xplore.
Part 2: Built a Network model
Use NetSim to create your model:
· Create a simplified version of the SWITCHlan network, which directly links all the Swiss universities to each other, shown in https:
www.switch.ch/network/infrastructure
ackbone/.
· Please
iefly describe and justify all the design aspects (links, link bandwidth, routers, applications running, traffic generated, performance metrics measured, failures generated etc.) and any assumptions you may decide to make.
· Implement the following routing protocols: RIP, OSPF with all link costs the same, OSPF with different link costs (e.g., smaller costs for higher bandwidth links).
· Run two scenarios for each routing protocol you have chosen: Scenario 1 should be under “normal conditions”, where there are no network failures, while scenario 2 should be under “failure conditions” that has at least one significant link/node failure occu
ing in the network affecting all routing protocols.
· Generate graphs to evaluate the performance of the network (e.g., using metrics such as Traffic Sent, Traffic Received (bits/Sec), delay (ms), packet loss, jitter (if using VoIP), etc.).
· Critically evaluate and compare each routing protocol based on your findings.
A well-structured report needs to include:
· A well written abstract (around XXXXXXXXXXwords) providing a concise summary of the major aspects and findings covered in your pape
· A short introduction describing the motivation and rationale behind the specific topic
· A
ief literature review on the different categories of interior gateway routing protocols and the operation of the most significant ones.
· A critical evaluation of the performance of the protocols described previously based on your simulation results and on the literature. E.g., their advantages/disadvantages in different networks and network conditions, how your finding compare to published experimental work, when and where different protocols should be used, etc.
· A conclusion, which is evaluative and reflective. You can also provide examples of how and when some specific mechanisms/protocols are actually used in real networks.
· References in Harvard Referencing style.
· You must present your work in a professional manner, based on the provided template. Always check your work for grammatical e
ors and typos.
· Tip: What we don’t want to see is endless Rive
ed Modeler graphs without appropriate discussions or analysis and poor presentation. Always explain the graphs or pictures you put in your report.
The final output is a double-column paper according to the template (loosely based on the IEEE paper format), which can be seen on the end of this document. There is a 10% penalty if the report does not follow precisely the template.

Abstract— This report provides an overview of OSPF and EIGRP, two popular wired network routing protocols. OSPF and EIGRP both use a hierarchical network design and support variable length subnet masking (VLSM), which enables faster convergence time, load balancing, and improved bandwidth efficiency. A wired network's routing protocol should be chosen with factors such as the size of the network, topology, as well as traffic criteria in mind. Through a literature review and critical evaluation, this report compares and contrasts OSPF and EIGRP, discussing their respective strengths and weaknesses. Overall, the report finds that both protocols have advantages and drawbacks, and the choice between them depends on specific network needs and priorities.
Keywords: Routing protocols, OSPF, EIGRP, Wired networks, Hierarchical network design
I. Introduction
Routing protocols are critical to the smooth operation of wired networks. They determine the best path for data transmission between devices, ensuring that data a
ives at its destination in a reliable and timely manner. For wired networks, there are several routing protocols available, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages.
Network administrators and engineers use network simulation tools such as NetSim to evaluate and optimise the performance of routing protocols. NetSim provides a virtual environment for simulating and analysing wired network routing protocols.
In this report, we will look at the two most common wired network routing protocols, OSPF and EIGRP. We will look at the advantages and disadvantages of these protocols, as well as how to configure and implement them in a wired network environment using NetSim. We can gain insights into how routing protocols function under different network conditions and identify strategies for improving network performance and reliability by simulating and analysing them with NetSim.
II. Two most commonly used routing protocols for wired networks.
A. OSPF(Open Shortest Path First)
The acronym OSPF stands for Open Shortest Path First. OSPF is an Interior Gateway Protocol that allows routing data to be distributed within a single autonomous system. To find the shortest path between a source and a destination, OSPF employs a link state routing algorithm. Whichever OS you use, one thing is certain: it will be more efficient than the other.
OSPF works by using a hierarchical network design, where different routers are a
anged in different areas. Each region has a unique identity and is associated with a spinal area. OSPF routers within an area share information about their affiliated networks with other routers in the same area. OSPF then uses this information to create a topology map of the network. The topology map is utilized to evaluate the shortest distance between source and destination.
OSPF provides a variety of advantages over other routing protocols. One advantage is its low convergence time, i.e. the time it takes for a network to adapt to changes in network topology. OSPF supports load balancing as well, allowing distributed traffic across multiple routes. It prevents network congestion and facilitates reliable data transfer.
B. EIGRP( Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol)
EIGRP is another IGP used to share routing information inside of a single AS. The routing method used by EIGRP is a hy
id one that incorporates aspects of link-state routing protocols with remote routing protocols. VLSM and IPv6 support are features of EIGRP.
Similar to OSPF, EIGRP employs a hierarchical network...
