MN621 Advanced Network Design Page 2 of 6Prepared by: Prof Savitri Bevinakoppa Moderated by: Dr Ammar Alazab Mar, 2021Assignment DescriptionStudents are required to use an industry case study of your PBL exercise to completethe assignment. It is to note that this assignment consists of two parts a) Assignment1a and b) Assignment 1b. You have to discuss your chosen case study with tutor inweek 1 and 2. Make sure to design your own case study if possible to avoidAcademic Misconduct.Assignment 1a1. Project Scope and report requirementsThe project scope and requirement should have a detail explanation of the planning and designing ofa network. It is recommended that bullet points are included whenever necessary. Use your ProblemBased Learning (PBL) tutorial findings.The following is the scope for Assignment 1a.• Attach your chosen real world business case study with reference as an appendix A.• Include points that you have gathered from your chosen case study on their existingnetwork.• Discuss in a tabular form how the information obtained will be useful in designing thenetwork.• Discuss the approach you will be taking (include bullet points whenever necessary) toredesign the network.MN621 Advanced Network Design Page 3 of 6Prepared by: Prof Savitri Bevinakoppa Moderated by: Dr Ammar Alazab Mar, 2021Assignment 1bThe following is the scope for Assignment 1b.2. Response to assignment 1a• It is mandatory that students should demonstrate how they have incorporated thefeedback given in assignment 1a. You may use a tabular form whenever necessary.3. Network design and justification• Draw a network design that you think will be useful in the future for the industry that youhave visited. Network should include the following requirements:o 4 routerso 5 switcheso 7 PCso 3 VLANs.• Suitable IP addressing scheme in tabular form (assume as many hosts as necessary for eachdepartment). Use your MIT student ID to come up with your own IP addressing scheme (toavoid Academic Misconduct). Justify the choice of IP address.• Indicate where do you use static routing, dynamic routing protocols (name the protocols,RIP, EIGRP, OSPF, etc.), Access Control List (ACL) as per the network preferences. Justify yourchoices.4. Network configurationConfigure your network using Packet Tracer. Write a report on• Packet Tracer Network diagram- Copy diagram from your simulator• Switch configuration• Router configuration• Host configuration• Access point and server configuration guidelines.5. Timeline and Budget estimationThis section should include the followings:• Hardware requirements with the specification with costs• Human resources and logistics• Tentative timeline specifications.MN621 Advanced Network Design Page 4 of 6Prepared by: Prof Savitri Bevinakoppa Moderated by: Dr Ammar Alazab Mar, 2021Marking CriteriaThe following tentative marking criteria will be followed for the assignment.
