Computer netwoks meaning, types, benefits

  1. 1. Computer NetworksStructure and Types Connecting Devices BY Dr. SAJEEVE V.P. 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 1
  2. 2. Network- meaning Linking of two or more computers with or without wires so as to provide access- mutual or one way 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 2
  3. 3. Network – types- 1. 2. 3. 4. Based on structure-Star, Bus, Ring, Mesh Based on Area- WAN, LAN, MAN Based on status- Client-Server, Peer-Peer Based on Purpose- Storage Area Network, others 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 3
  4. 4. 1. Network – types- Based on Structures or Topology geometrical arrangement of devices, nodes and links, Nodes –end point-ws, terminal, equipment, etc Link-the comn.path- circuit, channel 1. Star Network 2. Bus Network 3. Ring Network 4. Mesh Network 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 4
  5. 5. 1. STAR NETWORK One computer at the centre Others around it. + Saves cable Fault in one node -other nodes unaffected No connection between nodes Node needs to connect through cental 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 5
  6. 6. STAR NETWORK- evaluation Merits Nodes easily added / removed Fault in one node, other nodes unaffected Easier to diagnose node failures. Demerits: If central hub fails, entire system collapses No connection between nodes Node needs to connect through cental 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 6
  7. 7. 2. Bus network Nodes connected in a serial To a single main (backbone) cable 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 7
  8. 8. Bus network- evaluation Merits Saves cable, less costly To a single main (backbone) cable Easy extension Demerits: Heavy traffic jam the network Every adnl. connection weakens the system Difficult to diagnose node failures 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 8

  13. 13. Network – what for? -USES 1.Sharing of resources  Processor speed  Storage  Hardwares -Peripherals connected-printer, scanner, camera, microphone, speakers, projector -Softare -Internet services 2. Savings in cost / resources/ installation 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 13
  14. 14. Network – what for 3. Quick, real-time two-way communication Information / data transfer Banking, fund transfer, email. 4. Easy and quick access to files 5. Personal touchvideo call and conference 6. Leads to efficiency-prompt employees to report to, work in time. 7. Distributed processing 8. Less supervision-system auto-checks 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 14
  15. 15. Network – risks 1. Failure of one unit in the network collapses the entire system 2. Too much sophistication makes difficult to manage and operate without experts 3. Data loss affects the entire system, especially if no proper backup. 4. Cost 5. Nodes not independent- permission 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 15
  16. 16. 2. Network – Types Based on area    LAN- Local Area Network MAN- Metropolitan (medium) Area Net Work WAN – Wide Area Network 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 16
  17. 17. LANLocal Area Network Network of computers in restricted (small) limited geographical area. Whole network confines to single site. Within an office, one organisation, campus. 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 17
  18. 18. LAN- Components      File servers Network operating system (software) PC, W. Stns, nodes-(computers) Network interface cards Cabling / wireless connectivity 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 18
  19. 19. 3. Network types- Based on statusNetwork Architectureorganisation of networks Client – server (main-sub) one main computer serving the nodes several nodes needing permission to access Peer-to peer (equal status) All computers are of same status having equal access to any other. no permission needed 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 19
  20. 20. LAN-WAN Comparison 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. WAN Wider area Aim- Communication External comunication link Hired services from third party- ISP Interruption frequent LAN 4. Small area Aim-resource sharing Only internal cables Owned 1. Little interruption 1. 2. 3. 2. Data error chance more 3. 7. More devices required 4. 7. 2/2/2014 link several LANs Dr.SAJEEVE VP May 6. Small chance Less devices May be linked to WAN 20
  21. 21. What decides LAN-WAN ? 1. 2. 3. 4. 3 computers / 100 computers WAN needs to have many LANS One computer in India connected to another in the USA- WAN OR LAN? Two computers in the same lab connected through internet. 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 21
  22. 22. 4. Network – types- Based on Purpose A. Storage Area Network (SAN) centrally managed storage 1. Network Attached Storage (NAS) A dedicated shared storage File servers-large capacity to store Permit nodes to share 2. Direct Attached Storage (DAS) Storage attached to a single server. 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 22

Hub- connecting link for LANs Bridge, Repeater- strenthen- link if obstacles Router –processor-MAC addresses in NICs Switches-many ports- IP address 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 24
  25. 25. HUB 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. A hardware device (include no s/w) Common linking point Usually connects two or more LANs Does not read addresses but Simply passes data without screening Flooding- sending all to all nodes other than sender- so more jam. Junction point for LANs Usually used in a campus to connect to LANs 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 25
  26. 26. Gateways 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. A hardware device (include no s/w) Entrance to a network Usually connects two or more LANs Does not read addresses but Simply passes data without screening Flooding- sending all to all nodes other than sender- so more jam. No data management capacity unlike routers or switches 2/2/2014 Dr.SAJEEVE VP 26
