Details of this Paper

Small Office - Ethernet LAN A+




Question;The project will consist of a 10-page project paper. The 10 pages;include only the text, with everything else extra. You are expected to;run a spell checker against the paper. More than 12 pages is not;expected. As a matter of fact, it will not help you to include more.Supporting diagrams or pictures are welcome, but they do not need to be fancy.The;project will be a subset of a network design that still requires you to;think about media, hardware, and protocols for either home use or to;support a small office.You will write the paper from the point of view of a network designer, and you will try to solve one of these two problems.;Problem 1 I am sitting in front of my Intel PC, which is;running a Windows XP (or later) operating system, and I am using my;Internet Explorer Web browser to access an ISP of your choice. I am;doing this at 56 kbs modem speeds, but I want to join the broadband;revolution.You will hook my PC up to some broadband access;method. You will describe the overall design, describe specific vendor;hardware that makes up the design, describe the transmission media, and;describe the protocols within the design (note that this includes TCP/IP;and HTTP).The three approved solutions for this problem are;cable TV, DSL, or wireless. For DSL, you should describe the solution;from my PC to the DSLAM or the first ATM switch. For cable or wireless;you should describe access from my PC to where they hook up to the ISP.Problem 2 I;want to set up an Ethernet LAN for my small office of 10 people. The;parameters are similar to those of Problem 1, except you will be;connecting to a LAN.For either problem, your design should;include the link from my PC or office workstation to the Internet;Service Point (ISP) access point within the vendor's network.You;will have to research one of these solutions and then write your paper.;For the DSL solution, you should go to one of the DSLAM vendors, such;as Lucent, select a DSLAM, and then describe it.For the cable;wireless, or LAN solutions, you will have to describe how the network;components work in general. You will need to include descriptions on the;home or office components, as well as an overview of their networks.These;terms will become clearer as the course advances. Fine-tuning of the;concept will take place when you submit your one-page outline in week 4.;The instructor is available for help and suggestions. You are;encouraged to interact with the other members of your class.Project GradingThe project paper will be graded on the following elements: ? introduction (10%)? overall design or high-level description (20%)? hardware (10%)? transmission media (10%)? protocol description (10%)? lessons learned (10%)? grammar/syntax and length (20%)? references (10%)
