Purpose of the assignment:
The purpose of this assignment is to exercise and develop skills required to analyse and design networks to address the need of clients. In this assessment, students will be able to  Understand the basic concepts and principles of technology relating to electronic data communications and computer networking  Demonstrate a basic understanding of terminology of network communications technology, network operating systems and network applications  Articulate the difference between different types of network configurations and indicate the situations in which various options are best/most appropriate  Understand and explain different role of networking and network operating systems for information systems  Appreciate the need for different types of networks
Assignment requirements:
All three scenarios should be addressed. Use the instructions within each scenario to prepare a report.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Scenario 1:
You must install a network with 20 computers for a new business that wants to run TCP/IP and have access to the Internet. The ISP in town will assign you only two public IP addresses, so you decide to assign the computers addresses in the range of XXXXXXXXXX/16 to XXXXXXXXXX/16. You also need to install a network monitoring tool to the central server to monitor network activities which shows status of each computer in the network. You need to report the following to your supervising boss before you are assigned with the project.
Part I:
 Identify a freeware tool that can monitor the entire network and show status of each computer in the network. Install and explore this freeware.  Produce a report which details the identified tool and its features. You should use a number of screenshots of the tool and its features that will help you to monitor network activities.
Scenario 2:
You are hired as a consultant to place a WiFi network (for 50-60 customers) for which you need to carry out WiFi scanning, to notify you of all the nearest and closest Access points (APs), as well as identify if the networks are 802.11/a, 802.11/b or 802.11/g. Also, its main features should include AP information (SSID, MAC Address) and signal quality chart. Your wireless network should be supported by 2 servers (Web and email servers) that are connected to LAB of 20 users. You need to report the following to your supervising boss before you are assigned with the project.
Part I:
 Identify a freeware tool for wifi scanning that can report all the required activities mentioned in the case details of scenario 2. Install and explore this freeware.  Produce a report which details the identified tool and its features. You should use a number of screenshots of the tool and its features that will help you to monitor network activities.
Scenario 3:
You have been called in to consult on a new network design for CNT Books. The requirements of this design are summarized as follows:
 The building has three floors.  There are 300 user workstations and 10 servers.  Users must be grouped according to the projects they're working on, but the users for each project are located on all three floors.  There must be fault tolerance for communicating between the floors.  Performance analyzing tool to evaluate performance and QoS of the network.
Part I:
 Identify a freeware tool for performance and QoS evaluation tool. Install and explore this freeware.  Produce a report which details the identified tool and its features. You should use a number of screenshots of the tool and its features that will help you to monitor network activities.
The report outline should be:
 Introduction  Justification of the tool choice (how does this tool fit with the requirements in all three scenarios?)  Tools’ features that are important for the scenarios o Use screenshots in this section and describe each features  Conclusion

1. Scenario 1
The installation of 20 computers will requires some consideration for hardware as well as software. The requirements of hardware and software are listed below:
1. Hardware requirements:
· Desktop computers with inbuilt Ethernet card,
· A server for LAN (Local area network),
· Category 5 based twisted pair cables,
· Connector: RJ45,
· Switch with 32 ports, and
· A router from Cisco.
2. Software requirements:
· OS for server 2003,
· OS for computers,
· Suite of TCP/IP, and
· A web

The PRTG freeware tool of monitoring the network is being best suited for the given scenario. The complete network of any new business with individual computers can easily be monitored by this tool on easy bases. The trial version of PRTG is freely available. This monitoring tool is powerful and can be used for all small, large or medium size networks. The monitoring of VPN, WLAN, WAN, or LAN can be easily completed by using PRTG tool. The network availability and use of memory bandwidth can be monitored by it. The administrator of this application can make live reading of network efficiency, routers, used network lines, firewalls, routers and servers. The packet sniffing with SNMP provides easy setup interface for PRTG tool. The information of deployed network is also stored by PRTG for future analysis work. The PRTG can be used to monitor 20 computers on simultaneous bases. Any license for trial version is not being required by PRTG tool. The monitoring technology provided by Paessler’s is being used in this tool. The points showing key feature of this PRTG tool are listed below:
· The PRTG tool provides alerts for down time of network server.
· The complete bandwidth as well as used bandwidth is being monitored by PRTG tool.
· The processor usages of individual system are being monitored.
· The content and source/destination are being classified by this PRTG tool.
· The malicious activities can easily be monitored and found by this tool.
· The SLA agreement is being controlled by it.
The screen shot of home page to install the PRTG is shown below:
The screen shot to configure the account of user on PRTG is shown below:
The screen shot to show the log information is as shown below:
The screen shot to show the sensor health is as given below:
