CCN Module : V: Packet Switching Networks ( 25 Marks ) By Kamal Rochlani N.B: Questions printed in different color were asked in Mumbai University exams. Network Services & internal network Operation(Q: 1) What is packet Switching? 5(Q:2) What do you mean by Network Service? Explain in detail. 6(Q:3) Explain the following Network Services: A. Connectionless Network Service ( CLNS) B. Connection Oriented Service (CONS) OR Compare: CLNS & CONS. 5 / 10(Q:4) Why does the internet use a connectionless network service? 5(Q:5) What is the difference between Network layer delivery & transport layer delivery? 5 Packet Network Topology(Q:6) Write short note on: Packet Network Topology. 5 Connectionless Packet switching ( Datagram)(Q:7) Write short note on : Connectionless Packet Switching (Datagram). 08 Virtual Circuit Packet Switching(Q:8) Write short note on : Virtual Circuit Packet Switching . 08(Q:9) Consider a multistage switch that consists of N inputs grouped into N/n groups of n input lines. Each of first stage switch consists of n X k array of crosspoints. i. For N= 32, compare the number of crosspoints required by a non blocking sitch ith n=16 & repeat for n=8. ii. For N=16, n=4, k=2 find the maximum number of connections that can be supported at any time. 10(Q:10) Define the following parameters for a switching network: N= number of hops between two given end systems L= message length in bits B= data rate, in bits per second (bps), on all link P = fixed packet size, in bits H= Overhead ( header) in bits per packet S= call setup time ( circuit switching or virtual circuit) in seconds D= Propagation Delay per hop in seconds For N=4,L=3200,B=9600,P=1024,H=16,S=0.2,D=0.001, Compute the end to end delay for circuit switching, virtual circuit packet switching & datagram packet switching. Assume that there are no acknowledgements. Ignore processing delay at the nodes. 10(Q:11) Using the example network given in fig. give the virtual circuit tables for all the switches after each of the following connections is established . Assume that the sequence of connections is cumulative ; i.e the first connection is still up when the second connection is established and so on. Also assume that VCI assignment always picks the lowest unused VCI on each link, starting with 0.
