Your response should include answers to the following;? On which layers of the OSI model do WAN protocols operate?;? What are some of these protocols?;? On which OSI layers do switches and routers operate?;? If routers reside at more than one layer, what is the difference between the OSI layers?;Discussion Question 1;Write a 250- to 300-word short-answer response to the following;? Conduct an Internet search to locate an example of a private network and a public network. How is each network used? What are the pros and cons of each?;Discussion Question 2;Write a 250- to 300-word short-answer response to the following;? Explain sub-netting in a way a nontechnical client would understand. Add clarification to other student explanations.;Discussion Question 3;Find a web site, an article on a web site or a peer reviewed article that is related to this weeks material. Write a 250-300 word synopsis what you have found and explain why you think it is relevant. Make sure you include the references and links to the article or web site.;Learning Team Instructions;Network Design for Acme Manufacturing Address Draft;Draft the IP address scheme, including the range of IP addresses, broadcast addresses, and subnets.;Draft a VLAN to appropriately address Acme?s concerns that departments that are not grouped together are logically connected.;Monday;Individual;Short Answers;Provide answers to each of the following questions;Identify the functions of a CSU/DSU. How are they used in a corporate environment? Integrated services digital networks (ISDN) are sometimes used in locations that do not support DSL or cable modem connections. Your choices may be analog modems or an ISDN connection in those remote locations. Describe three benefits ISDNs have over regular dial-up modem connections. Compare and contrast packet and circuit switching. Which is more commonly used? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? Describe the three main types of firewalls. Explain how each type protects the network. Determine which firewall is the most efficient and why.;Your answers should be 3-4 pages long in total (400 words per page).;Discussion Question 1;Write a 250- to 300-word short-answer response to the following;? What are some of the greatest security risks to a WAN? Provide an example of one risk and discuss the potential consequences and possible precautions.;Discussion Question 2;Write a 250- to 300-word short-answer response to the following;? Network attacks come in many forms. Broadley, et al. (2009) point out a new method where the attacker creates a covert communication channel by changing the timing of part of a real signal and sneaking in. Analyze and discuss whether your system at work could be attacked by this methodology and if you think so what are you going to do about it?;Discussion Question 3;Find a web site, an article on a web site or a peer reviewed article that is related to this weeks material. Write a 250-300 word synopsis what you have found and explain why you think it is relevant. Make sure you include the references and links to the article or web site.;Learning Team Instructions;Network Design for Acme Manufacturing Equipment Draft;Draft recommendations on network equipment that should be placed at each location. Also consider equipment based on the teleconferencing needs.;Draft a recommendation on how to secure the network. Make appropriate recommendations for wireless at Acme.;Monday;Individual;VLAN Paper;Consider the following scenario;Your Company moves into a new building. Marketing is on the first floor, engineering is on the second floor, operations are on the third floor, and the call center is on the fourth floor. The LAN is organized neatly, with each floor having its own switch. Some of the groups on the floor are connected through hubs and the network is planned for orderly growth. The company grows faster and much differently than was planned, however, and the call center must be expanded. Some of the engineering department employees on the second floor and operations employees on the fourth floor move offsite, and the call center expands. Space is compressed and users move to other parts of the building, but their communities of interest do not change. The same users still need to communicate with the same services.;Write a 3-4 page plan (400 words per page) explaining how a VLAN could be implemented so that bandwidth is not consumed. Your plan must ensure that the network is not flooded with packets, and that members of the same VLAN can be located in different buildings or cities. Include the following;? The benefit of creating a VLAN.;? A plan to segment the network into different broadcast domains to avoid bandwidth consumption.;? A plan to improve security.;? The type of VLAN membership and the value of that choice over other options.;? The type of switch to be used, layer 2 or layer 3, and why you would choose it over the other.;? The types of trunking configured on the switch.;? The purpose and benefit of using the VLAN trunk protocol (VTP).;? A definition of the VTP mode used to configure the switches.;? Backup plan.;Your answers should be 4-5 pages long (400 words per page).;Discussion Question 1;Write a 250- to 300-word short-answer response to the following;? How can wireless interface with a WAN?
