  • Easy to add extra computers . If computer goes down it doesn’t affect rest of network
  • If central host goes doewn affects rest of network
  • LAN local area network
  • Contention occurs on star and bus networks.
  • Devives that connect local area networks If a BUS or ring then a Gateway needs to be used

  • Graham BettsMore Informationmust be a Sender and ReceiverA protocol is a set of rules which governs the transfer ofdata between computers. Protocols allow communicationbetween computers and networks.Handshaking is used to establish which protocols to use.Handshaking controls the flow of data between computersprotocols will determine the speed of transmission, errorchecking method, size of bytes, and whether synchronousor asynchronousExamples of protocols are: token ring, CSMA/CD, X.25,TCP/IPCharacteristics ofCommunicationSystems
  • Graham Betts5 Basic ComponentsEvery communication system has 5 basic requirements•Data Source (where the data originates)•Transmitter (device used to transmit data)•Transmission Medium (cables or non cable)•Receiver (device used to receive data)•Destination (where the data will be placed)
  • Graham Betts5 Basic Components
  • Graham Betts•Bandwidth:The amount of data which can betransmitted on a medium over a fixed amount of time(second). It is measured on Bits per Second or Baud•Bits per Second (bps): A measure oftransmission speed. The number of bits (0 0r 1) whichcan be transmitted in a second (more)•Baud Rate: Is a measure of how fast a change ofstate occurs (i.e. a change from 0 to 1) (more)Transmission Media Speed
  • Graham BettsThis file has now been broken into four packetsPACKETPacketsTransmissions are broken up intosmaller units or data transmissionscalled packetsPACKET PACKET PACKETExampleA data file is divided into packets.It does not matter what the transmission is. It could be Worddocument, a PowerPoint or an MP3. Imagine this Green boxis a file for transfer
  • Graham BettsPackets and OSIAfter the file is divided into packetsextra information is required to makesure it all goes back together correctly.The OSI model helps to look after this.The OSI model also provides muchmore information which is included witheach package.
  • Graham BettsMore Information on OSIOSI 7 Layer Model•OSI “Open System Interconnection”•OSI is not a protocol but a list of protocolsdivided between 7 layers with each layer havinga different set of functions.•Each packet is layered/packaged withprotocols from each of the layers as it isprocessed.•The process of layering the protocols aroundeach package is called encapsulation. The finalencapsulated data packet is called a frame.Originally Created by Bob BakerModified 2006Graham Betts

  • Graham BettsHSC Topic 3.3Examples ofCommunication Systems
  • Graham BettsExamples of Communication Systems- E-mail- Voice Mail - Fax- Smart Phone - Instant Messaging- Telecommuting - Video-conferencing- Groupware - Telephony- E-Commerce - The Internet- Bulletin board system - The Web- Global positioning system
  • Graham BettsHSC Topic 3.4Transmitting andReceiving inCommunication SystemsCommunication concepts(transmission of data, protocols and handshaking, networks, LANs andWANs,Topologies, Network Access Methods)Network Hardware(NICs, Servers, Routers and Switches, Bridges and gateways, Hubs,Transmission mediaNetwork SoftwareNOSs, Network Operating System Tasks, Logon and Logoff Procedures,Intranets and Extranets
  • Graham BettsAny transmission May be:•analog or digital•Serial or parallelCommunicationConcepts
  • Graham BettsSender transmittedData is transmitted, on a single channel, one bit at atime one after another- Much faster than parallel because of way bitsprocessed (e.g. USB and SATA drives)Receiver receivedSerial Transmission101 0 0 1 1 0
  • Graham Betts Receiverreceived-each bit has it’s own piece of wire along which it travels- often used to send data to a printerParallel TransmissionSendertransmittedAll bits are sent simultaneously10011001
  • Graham BettsWhy Not use ParallelInstead of serial?Due to inconsistencies on channels dataarrives at different timesBecause of the way it is transmitted packetswitching cannot be usedThe above two points makes parallel slowerthan serial and requires higher bandwidth.Parallel transmissions are rarely usedanymore
  • Graham BettsSynchronous Transmissionall data sent at once and no packet switchingAsynchronous Transmission•Uses stop/ start bits•most common type of serial data transfer•Allows packet switching•Allows sharing of bandwidth (i.e. talk on phonewhile another person is using internet)Synchronous VsAsynchronousTransmissions
  • Graham Betts- simplex: One direction onlyTransmission Direction
  • Graham BettsHalf DuplexTransmissionhalf duplex: Bothdirections butonly onedirection at atime
  • Graham BettsFull DuplexTransmissionfull duplex:send andreceive bothdirections atonce
  • Graham Betts•Ethernet (Ethernet Network)-Carrier Sense Multiple Access/Collision Detection(CSMA/CD)-TCP/IP3 Common Protocols
  • Graham BettsEthernetDeveloped at Xerox in 1976.First protocol approved as an industrystandard protocol 1983LAN protocol used on bus and starMost popular LAN protocolInexpensive
  • Graham BettsCarrier Sense MultipleAccess/CollisionDetection (CSMA/CD)- Used on bus networks to avoid datacollisions.
  • Graham Betts• Developed in 1973 for use on theARPANET which was a defense forceresearch network.-Adopted in 1983 as the Internet standard.all hosts on the Internet are required to useTCP/IP.- Allows transfer of data using packetswitchingTCP/IP
  • Graham BettsLANs Vs WANsLAN is “local Area network” which is anetwork confined to a small geographicarea which is a building or a group ofbuildings.WAN is “wide area network” which is anetwork spread over a large geographicarea. The largest WAN is the internet.
  • Graham BettsExamples of LANS3 different types of LANS are:RingBusStar
  • Graham BettsUses an empty datapacket called a tokenand a special protocolcalled “token ring”.Packets travel aroundthe ring in a clockwisedirection. Clientsrequire an empty tokento transmit data.Advantages- no collisionsbecause all data travelsin same direction.Disadvantages- fails if an individualnode in the networkfailsRing
  • Graham BettsA bus is a form of Ethernet. Nodes linked by a cable known as thebus. Bus transmits in both directions and uses CSMA/CD protocolBUS TOPOLOGYAdvantages- Easy to set up and maintainfailure of one node does not affectnetworkDisadvantages-Higher rate of data collision thanwith a bus network-fails if there is any damage to thebus
  • Graham BettsAll data is sent fromone client to anotherthrough the server.Advantages- If one client fails noother clients areaffected.Disadvantages- If central file serverfails the network fails.Star
  • Graham BettsNetwork Hardware
  • Graham BettsA network is a number of computers andperipheral devices connected together so asto be able to communicate (i.e. transferdata)Each device in a network is called anode.Terminals are data entry points whichcan also display.What is a Network?
  • Graham BettsLAN – a network that connects computers in a limitedgeographical area.MAN – a backbone that connects LANs in a metropolitanarea such as a city and handles the bulk of communicationsactivity across that region.WAN – covers a large geographical area such as a city orcountry. Communication channels include telephone lines,Microwave, satellites, etc.NETWORKS: categorizedby size
  • Graham BettsNETWORK TOPOLOGIES(categorizing by shape)
  • Graham BettsLarge networks can be separated into two or more smallernetworks using a bridge. This is done to increase speed andefficiency. This type of network is called a segmented LAN andhas largely been superseded by the use of switches which cantransfer data straight to a computer and thus avoid bottleneck jamswhich bridges were designed to fix.BridgeBridge
  • Graham BettsOften used to connect a LAN with a WAN. Gateways join two orMore different networks together.GatewayGateway
  • Graham BettsInternetpublic/international network which is used to accessinformation, e-shopping, e-banking, emailIntranetprivate network (LAN or WAN) used to share resources in secureenvironmentuses web pages (HTML to view) and TCP/IP protocols (to makeconnection)Extranetintranet that has been extended to include access to or from selectedexternal organizations such as customers, but not general public.Note: Connections via leased lines, or network interconnections.Internet, Intranet, Extranet
  • Graham BettsTransmission Mediatwisted pair – telephone cablecoaxial cable –Thick black cable used forhigher bandwidth communications thantwisted pair (i.e. Optus cable)fibre optic – data transferred throughpulses of light. Extremely fast.Non cable methods such as satelite,microwave, wireless and bluetoothMore on internet
  • Graham BettsSERVERS: Help to manage the network and the resourcesof that network. On larger networks servers commonly havespecialised tasks such as: File Servers: stores and managesfiles, Print Servers: manages printers and print jobs, MailServer: Manages email, Web Server: manages web access.Routers: connects multiple networks and are protocolindependent. can be used in place of a switch or bridge.Switches: smart hubs which transmit packets to thedestination port onlyHubs: like double adapters /power boards in the homeexcept instead of plugging in extension cords we are pluggingin computers to allow them to communicate.Network HardwareMore on Internet
