Task
ack to top
This assessment aims to develop and gauge student understanding of the key topics covered so far by answering the following questions. Answering these questions will help you build some understanding for the next assessment item as well as for the entire subject. It is expected that answers to the assignment questions be succinct (i.e. precise and concise) with all sources of information fully referenced as per APA referencing style. You have to reference the text book and any additional material you have used in your answers.
Note that the guide for APA referencing is provided in the resources section of Interact site of this subject.
Answers MUST be written in your own words. No marks will be awarded for any answer that contains more than 10% direct quote (referenced or unreferenced). One or two sentence answers will be too short and only receive low marks. Answers longer than 1.5 pages (12 point font, single line spacing) may incur a penalty if too much non-relevant information is stated. For mathematical questions it is expected that you show intermediate steps of your working. Just stating the co
ect solution will result in low marks, on the other hand if the working is co
ect and you only made minor mistakes, you will still be awarded marks, even though the final answer is wrong.

 Temora Office - 215 workstations
  Culcairn Office - 150 workstations
TASK - Write a 800 words (+/- 10%) (Max) report explaining:
a.The detailed design of a simple addressing solution (with diagram(s) and step by step workout of the calculations) that leaves room for growth, is easy to administer and has the minimum wastage of available IP address space. [ 3.5 Marks]
.Explain what happens to your design if the number of hosts per network jumps to over 1,024 per building. [ 1.5 Marks]

    Question 1
Briefly describe the OSI reference model and the TCP/IP networking model, use diagrams to show the relation between both these models.
Networks are complex set of devices performing different tasks. It is impossible to coordinate all the devices to work together unless they all follow same set of rules to communicate with each other. These set of rules are called protocols. Originally there was TCP/IP protocol suite for devices to communicate with each other comprising of 4 layered architecture. Each layer had defined task and format of data packet to pass from one layer to another. As network technology progressed, the OSI model was drafted which comprised of 7 Layered architecture.
The mapping of layers between two models can be understood from diagram here.
(Ibe)Page 14
Both the models have an Application layer to interface with the Client side. The data to and from the client is handled by this layer. OSI model defines the same with more granularity by dividing it into three layers. Data from Application layer is then packaged for network transmission by rest of the layers in both the models. Addressing and formatting of payload is done in the lower layers. OSI model has divided the physical layer into two layers again for more clarity in implementation which is handled by single Network access layer in TCP/IP model.
Functionally both the models achieve the same task with different implementations. However TCP/IP model is widely used in the internet because its infrastructure was built much before OSI came out as a standard. All of internet today works on this model.
