Assignment 1 Computer Networks Pratibha Singh VI CSE A ECS-601: Computer Network Assignment 1 VI CSE A 1.

What are the key benefits of layered network/protocol? What are the seven lay ers of ISO s OSI model? Briefly write functionalities of different OSI layers? Which OSI layers handles framing and ro uting? (2009-10) Which OSI layer perform error detection and correction, routing, responsibility for delivery bet ween adjacent nodes and reliable proves to process data transportation? (2010-11) 2. Besides bandwidth and latency, what other parameter is needed to give a good characterization of the quality of service offered by a network used for digitized voice traffic? 3. A factor in the delay of a store-and-forward packet-switching system is how l ong it takes to store and forward a packet through a switch. If switching time is 10 sec, is this likely to be a majo r factor in the response of a clientserver system where the client is in New Yo rk and the server is in California? Assume the propagation speed in copper and fiber to be 2/3 the speed of light in vacuum. 4. What is the principal difference between connectionless communication and con nection-oriented communication? 5. Two networks each provide reliable connection-oriented service. One of them o ffers a reliable byte stream and the other offers a reliable message stream. Are these identical? If so, why is the d istinction made? If not, give an example of how they differ.(2008-09) 6. Which of the OSI layers handles each of the following: (a) Dividing the transmitted bit stream into frames. (b) Determining which route through the subnet to use. 7. List two ways in which the OSI reference model and the TCP/IP reference model are the same. Now list two ways in which they differ. 8. What is the main difference between TCP and UDP? 9. How long was a bit on the original 802.3 standard in meters? Use a transmissi on speed of 10 Mbps and assume the propagation speed in coax is 2/3 the speed of light in vacuum. 10. An image is 1024 x 768 pixels with 3 bytes/pixel. Assume the image is uncomp ressed. How long does it take to transmit it over a 56-kbps modem channel? Over a 1-Mbps cable modem? Over a 10-M bps Ethernet? Over 100-Mbps Ethernet? (almost same in 2008-09) 11. A noiseless 4-kHz channel is sampled every 1 msec. What is the maximum data rate? 12. Television channels are 6 MHz wide. How many bits/sec can be sent if fourlevel digital signals are used? Assume a noiseless channel. 13. If a binary signal is sent over a 3-kHz channel whose signal-to-noise ratio is 20 dB, what is the maximum achievable data rate? 14. A modem constellation has data points at the following coordinates: (1, 1), (1, -1), (-1, 1), and (-1, -1). How many bps can a modem with these parameters achieve at 1200 baud? (2007-08) Assignment 1 Computer Networks Pratibha Singh VI CSE A 15. We measure the performance of a telephone line (4 KHz of bandwidth). When th e signal is 10 V, the noise is 5 mV. What is the maximum data rate supported by this telephone line? 16. What is the importance of Local Access Network design in telecommunications?

Explain its architecture. Discuss the Local Access Network Design problem. 17. What are the five criteria used for explaining the Backbone Network Design? What is the difference between Collapsed and distributed backbone network? 18. What is BRA and PRA in ISDN? Discuss three types of ISDN Services. Differen tiate B-ISDN and NISDN(2007-08). 19. Give a comparison of message switched, circuit-switched and packet-switched networks. (2009-10) 20. A system is designed to sample analog signals, convert them to digital form with 4-bit converter. And transmit them. What bit rate is required if the analog signal consists of frequencies between 4 00 Hz and 3400 Hz?(2007-08) 21. What are relative merits and demerits of a single mode fiber in comparison t o multi-mode fiber? (2007-08) 22. For n devices in a network, what is the number of cable links required for a mesh, ring, bus, and star topology?(200809) (2009-10) 23. What is total delay (latency) for a frame size of 10 million bits that is be ing set up on a link with 15 routers each having a queuing time of 2 micro sec and a processing time of 1 micro sec? The l ength of link is3000. The link has bandwidth of 6 Mbps. (2008-09) 24. What is the baud rate of the standard 10-Mbps Ethernet? 25. What is the baud rate of a 5 Mbps IEEE 802.3 CSMA/CD LAN? (2010-11). Submission Deadlines: 1-15 questions on 27/02/2012 before 3:00 PM 16-25 questions on 29/02/2012 before 5:00 PM
