- CLO3: Justify the topology and IP addressing plan based on the network design (A3, PLO8)
Note: PLO8 – Personal Skills
You are required to design and apply an IP addressing scheme for the topology shown for Firefly Hotels network in Figure 1. You will be given one class C block of IP addresses that you must subnet and provide the IP addressing plan for the network. Using Packet Tracer, you must first create the topology diagram of the network as shown in Figure 1. Once the topology diagram is done, configure each device according to your proposed IP addressing scheme. When the configuration is complete, use the appropriate commands to verify that the network is working properly.
Figure 1: Topology Design for Firefly Hotels Network
You are given the 192.168.50.0 address space to use in your network design. Prepare the IPv4 addressing plan for this network following VLSM subnetting techniques.
(Note: Remember that the interfaces of routers also require IP addresses and are included in the addressing scheme.)
|Subnet / Network||Number of Host|
|Kuala Lumpur (Wired LAN)||20|
|Kuala Lumpur (Wireles LAN)||60|
|Johor Bahru (Wired LAN)||12|
|Johor Bahru (Wireless LAN)||28|
|Penang (Wired LAN)||8|
|Penang (Wireless LAN)||50|
**the remaining subnet requirements for WAN connection will be using public IPv4 addressing (/30)
Part A : Topology Design (10 Marks)
- There are total of 3 branch routers, and 1 offsite router for backup. All router to router connections are using Serial interfaces.
- LAN connection in the 3 branches – Kuala Lumpur (KL), Johor Bahru (JB) and Penang are using copper cables (with Fast Ethernet interfaces)
- There are wireless LAN connection provided in KL, JB and Penang branch using WiFi technology.
- Connection from Offsite router to the servers are using fiber optic cables (with Gigabit Ethernet interfaces)
Draw the topology diagram in Cisco Packet Tracer, following the specific requirements
Part B: Packet Tracer Configuration (30 Marks)
- Perform basic configuration on Penang, JB, KL and Offsite routers to demonstrate the following configuration skills:
- Basic router/switch configuration (hostname, banner motd, passwords etc.). Please use “cisco” for all passwords.
- Static and Dynamic IPv4 Addressing
- Wireless configuration
- Verify the network configuration by using PING and Tracert command. Troubleshoot the network if any of your attempt is unsuccessful (failed).
Part C: Report – Network Topology / IP Addressing (60 Marks)
Each student is required to provide an individual report to justify the network topology and IP addressing scheme used in the network design. Relevant citation and referencing are to be used to support the design.
Below are the proposed guidelines for the report:
Proposed Guidelines for the Report:
- Network Topology
- Justifications of the network topology used
- LAN topology
- WAN topology
- IP Addressing Plan
- Justifications of the IP addressing and Subnetting scheme used
- IP addressing table
- Screenshot of selected commands and ping/tracert results
– Critical Evaluation (lesson learned) – reflections
- You are required to produce the work individually.
- Your report must be typed using Microsoft Word with Times New Roman font size 12. Expected length is not more than 10 pages (excluding the screenshots). Report should be in 1.5 spacing.
- The report has to be well presented and should be typed. Submission of reports that are unprofessional in its outlook will not fare well when marks are allocated.
- Your report must combine all the deliverables in one coherent document.
- The report should have a one (1”) margin all around the page as illustrated below:
- The assignment should attach front cover and table of contents.
- Plagiarism is a serious offence and will automatically be awarded zero (0) mark.
- Allinformation, figures and diagrams obtained from external sources must be referenced using the APA referencing system accordingly. https://library.apiit.edu.my/apa-referencing/
You have to hand in your assignment (only softcopy) on time to the Online Submission System (Moodle). The submission include:
- Softcopy of network design (in Cisco Packet Tracer)
