    • Explain Standards Organizations
  • 3. Computer Network
    • Interconnection of two or more computers and peripherals
    • Allows user to share and transfer information
  • 4. Need of Computer Networks
    • Sharing Resources
    • Reduced Cost
    • Reduced time
    • Scalability
    • Reliability
    • Security
  • 5. History of Computer Networks (ARPANET)
    • ARPA designed for Department of Defense (DOD), US
    • Small computers were connected to large mainframe computers
    • IMPs were connected to each other through modem
    • Supported different operating systems
    • Telenet and ftp services was provided by ARPANET
  • 6. Types of Computer Networks
    • Networks are classified depending on the geographical area covered by the network
    Computer Networks Local Area Network (LAN) Campus Area Network (CAN) Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) Wide Area Network (WAN)
  • 7. Local Area Network (LAN) - I
    • Covers a small area
    • Connects computers and workstations covering a local area like, office or home
  • 8. Local Area Network (LAN) - II
    • Advantages of LAN:
      • Improves productivity due to faster work
      • Provides easy maintenance
      • New systems can be installed and configured easily
    • Disadvantages of LAN:
      • Limited number of systems can only be connected
      • Cannot cover large area
      • Network performance degrades as number of users exceeds
  • 9. Types of LAN
    • LANs are classified depending on the techniques used for data sharing
    LAN Types Ethernet Token Ring Token Bus FDDI
  • 10. Campus Area Network (CAN)
    • Made up of multiple LANs within limited area
    • Connects different LANs in a campus
  • 11. Metropolitan Area Network
    • Interconnects networks within a city
    • Supports data and voice transmission
  • 12. Wide Area Network
    • Covers a wide geographical area which includes multiple computers or LANs e.g. Internet
  • 13. Case Study - I MoneyMaker is a bank having its registered office at Delhi. It has branches at Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bangalore. The operating departments in the bank are Finance, Insurance, Loan, IT, Marketing, Customer Service and HR. MoneyMaker bank uses LAN as their computer network for each department. All the branches of the bank from different cities are connected through WAN. The bank is expanding and decided to open its branches at different locations in the city.
  • 14. Problem Determine which type of network to be used within a city
  • 15. Suggested Solution Use LAN computer network for each department in the new branch. MAN can be used for connecting the different branches of the bank within the city
  • 16. Client/Server Configuration
    • Consists of two elements, Client and Server
    • Server:
      • A centralized element which provides resources to client
      • Manages data, printers or network traffic
    • Client:
      • Manages local resources used by users such as monitor, keyboard, CPU and peripherals
  • 17. OSI Model
    • Run it through CBT
  • 18. Open System Interconnection (OSI) Model - I
    • Also known as ISO-OSI Reference Model
    • Developed by International Organization for Standardization (ISO)
    • Describes flow of information from one computer to another
    • Consists of seven layers
  • 19. Open System Interconnection (OSI) Model - II
  • 20. Network Selection Criteria
    • Helps to improve network functionality
    Network Criteria Performance Reliability Security
  • 21. Case Study - II The Customer Service department of MoneyMaker bank provides online services to the customers. At Hyderabad branch, the Customer Service department network is not functioning properly. So the bank has decided to build an alternative network for that department .
  • 22. Problem
    • Selecting the network criteria
  • 23. Suggested Solution Decide network type and configuration, number of users, speed of the network, hardware to be used, operating system to be installed and anti-virus software
  • 24. Network Applications
    • Financial Institution (Banking Sector)
    • Communication Services (Telecom Industry)
    • Internet Service (WWW, ISP)
  • 25. Standards Organizations
    • Also known as Standards Development Organization (SDO)
    • Develop, maintain, improve and revise standards
    • Classified as:
      • International organozations – International Organization for Standardization (ISO)
      • National organozations – American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
      • Regional organozations – Euro-Asian Council for Standardization (EASC)
  • 26. Summary - I
    • Computer network enables the user to share data and network resources
    • Network allows remote users to communicate with each other
    • Computer networks are divided into LAN, CAN, MAN and WAN depending on the coverage area
    • LAN is a small network and easy to create
    • Client/Server configuration also called as two-tier architecture, consist of two nodes, client and server
  • 27. Summary – II
    • OSI model consists of seven layers and provides standards for computer communication
    • Physical layer is responsible for actual transmission of bits over the medium
    • Data Link layer is responsible for node to node delivery of frames
    • Network layer is responsible for end to end delivery of packets, and routing
  • 28. Summary - III
    • Transport layer is responsible for end to end delivery of the entire message
    • Session layer is responsible for establishing, managing and terminating sessions
    • Presentation layer is responsible for translation, encryption and data compression
    • Application layer is responsible for providing access to the network
  • 29. Summary - IV
    • Performance, reliability and security are the network selection criterion which enables to choose efficient network
    • Standards organizations like ISO and ANSI develop technical and non- technical standards
    • International standards organizations are International Standard Organization (ISO), International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)
