Part 1

 

The foundation of LANs and all networks is the transmission medium. Transmission media fall into 3 categories: metallic, optical fiber and the open space. Metallic media are in 2 legacy types: coax and twisted pair, with a 3rd emerging type: powerline. Transmission media are characterized primarily by two factors: raw bandwidth (in Hertz), and noise/interference, which in turn determine the transmission capacity in bits/sec. Transmission capacity of a medium also depends on the  signaling technique (e.g., modulation) used to transmit the signal.  Discuss the evolution of transmission media up to now, and prediction of such evolution into the future, as the demand for bandwidth keeps rising.  Also explore signal handling techniques, such as modulation, OFDM, and MIMO, particularly used in wireless systems.

Part 2

 

The wireless LAN technology (IEEE802.11x standards) has had a profound impact in short-range communications. Other wireless technologies, particularly Bluetooth, Zigbee, IrDA, RFID and NFC offer shorter-range communication services for various types of environments. 
Explore WLAN/802.11x technologies and other shorter-range wireless technologies and discuss them comparatively.

Part 3

 

Monitoring and analysis is an important part of fault and performance management in LANs and other networks. Discuss the conditions that can adversely affect network performance, and the current tools (software and hardware) as well as procedures that are available to network managers for monitoring and analysis of LANs, interconnected LANs, and other networks.
