Designing Cisco Networks (DCN)

    Use the following case study to answer the next 12 questions.

    FSI Test Equipment Incorporated: Precision test equipment manufacturing FSI manufactures high-end, high-volume semi-custom test equipment. Though the company only employs 150 people, sales revenue and profitability are very high because of niche market control and product price levels. Each piece of equipment is built to order and goes through rigorous testing and integration. As a result of market dominance, growth and profitability, company management has decided to make an initial public offering (IPO) of its stock. FSI has customers through out the world. Because their equipment integrates so tightly with customers’ high tech manufacturing systems, the company in reality becomes a partner with its customers during the design, manufacturing, and testing of the equipment. Purchase order to operational date cycles are typically one year and approximately five systems are in the development cycle at any gives time. Timely, accurate, and secure communications with the customer throughout the cycle is in imperative. Hardware design involves a significant number of CAD drawings to be stored and transmitted. Software development requires hundreds of thousands of lines of code for each customer. Though much of the code is reused, it nonetheless requires configuration and revision control for each customer. With funds raised from the IPO, FSI wants to improve its ability to interface, communicate and respond to its customers. It wants to implement secure FTP of code and drawings to its customer. Security is of utmost importance and therefore FSI is not sure if can trust the Internet to accomplish these transfers. Because of financial concerns, the company would much prefer the Internet to a private network if it can be convinced that the transfers can be made secure. Otherwise it will consider a private network. The company also would like to implement an inter-company workflow system for routing of electronic forms between FSI and its customers world-wide. Again, security is the issue. It would be wonderful if they can use the Internet for both these functions, but the new board of directors must be convinced. FSI offices are in San Jose, California. The project team assigned to customers has two sub-teams: the manufacturing and development team in San Jose, and the integration teams moves on site to the customers’ facilities. Communication is by telephone, e-mail, and even overnight package delivery. 25% of FSI employees (38-40) people are housed at customer sites at any given time. These field persons are in teams of approximately 8 people. A Novell PC LAN on Ethernet is established for each team within the customers’ facilities with a dial-up Internet connection using Livingston router for e-mail. In the San Jose office, FSI has two LANs with 80 PCs. The main LAN has 5 sun AutoCAD workstations that will use the test software, 20 Pentium UNIX engineering workstations for software development on one segment, and 50 office automation desktops running the Lotus Suite on another segment. These two LAN segments are connected to a Novell server with the two Ethernet cards as the only routing mechanism between the two. The second LAN has five processes monitoring an analysis PCs that collect and analyses the test data. This data is accesses continuously by the engineering staff from their workstation. The two LANs are networked with a third Internet card in the Novel server. Engineering staff is frequently frustrated with the performance across this link. You have been asked to provide a design and justification for an intranet/Internet bases solution that will convince the board of directors that the solution is viable and secure.

    EIC Satellite Systems: Digital satellite television programming sales EIC sells minidish satellite systems and television programs in central Europe. Its sales network comprises 10 company owned offices, 25 distributed sales and installation offices and a central office in Milan, Italy. In the central office 75 representatives provide 24 hour telephone support and order processing for programming changes. There are 200 employees in the central office with PCs running Microsoft Office in addition to telephone representatives. The company’s order processing, billing, accounting and programming systems reside on a large AS400 system in Milan. The 10 company offices are connected to this system with 9600bps leased lines. 25 distributor offices dial in to the system twice a day to upload order and download installation work order. An Ethernet LAN with three Novel servers supports the 275 central office employees. On average, the 10 offices have 4 PCs connected via Ethernet with Microsoft Windows 95. The leased line in each office does not provide a touted connection but a serial connection of 5250 terminal emulation to the communication port on the PC. The 25distributer offices dial in to the three PC Anywhere remote control computers that run 5250 terminal emulation and scripts that download installation work orders and upload new account orders to the AS400. To reduce transaction processing coast EIC will implement intranet technology to replace the current data communication mode. A Web server will be installed on the AS400 with back- end CGI that will interface to the order processing, billing and work order system. Java applets will be built for both remote PCs. EIC anticipates that these changes will allow it to handle twice the transactions without upgrading the AS400, while maintaining current transaction processing times. The company offices will be connected via ISDN routers using bonding between channels for the new browser-based applications. Similar browser-based connections will be accomplished for the distributor offices using a direct dial to the EIC Milan main office. Unless convinced otherwise, EIC intends to use the existing 9600bps lines for the routed connections. It is also desirable to provide an in Internet dial-up connections for customers to make their own configuration changes online and to order pay-per-view programming. Security for these transactions will be provided by secure Web transactions. Data transmission encryption is not necessary because these basically are secure Web-based credit card transactions.

    Design a hierarchy for addressing autonomous systems, areas, networks, subnetworks, and end stations.
    Design a plan for distributing administrative authority for addressing and naming at the lower levels of the hierarchy.

    93. What is one advantage CHAP has over PAP?

    CHAP is an IETF standard. PAP was never standardised.
    With CHAP, an intercepted challenge response cannot be replayed to gain access..
    CHAP can be exported from the United States to other countries. PAP cannot be exported.
    With CHAP, passwords must be stored on a separate server in an encrypted database or file.

    94. The central site has a fractional T1 connection and each remote site has a full T1 connection to the central site.

    The central site has a fractional T1 connection and each remote site has a full T1 connection to the central site.
    Each remote site has a router with one ISDN BRI and the central site has a router with ISDN PRI.
    The central site has a multiservice WAN ATM switch that offers personal communication services to the remote sites.
    The central site uses a hub and spoke topology including an Ethernet concentrator that has multiple WAN interfaces.

    95. Proactive management means all of the following except:

    Monitoring the network.
    Collecting statistics and watching trends.
    Troubleshooting and resolving network problems.
    Allocating sufficient staff time and hardware and software resources.

    Protocols that do not scale well.
    Excessive numbers of collisions on Ethernet networks.
    Long waits for the token on Token Ring or FDDI networks.
    Too many devices contend for access on a LAN segment.

    98. To help reduce the complexity associated with identifying and analysing customer problems and designing solutions, Cisco has developed a basic framework into which most customer problems fit. The framework is a triangle that contains the following components:

    Protocols, Transport, and Media
    Transport, Media, and NetManagement
    Media, Protocols, and NetManagement
    Protocols, Transport, and NetManagement

    Design Requirements.
    Executive Summary.
    Design Solution.

    100. As a guideline, none of the network segments should have more then ____ broadcasts/multicasts.


    101. Which statement is true about network security policies?

    End users do not need training on network security.
    Security policies should be bases on an understanding of which company assets are most valuable.
    Security systems should be designed to maximise the number of secrets, for example, passwords and encryption keys.
    A company that has an inflexible security policy that is hard to change is less vulnerable then a company with a flexible policy.

    102. Many technologies have been developed to support remote access. Which statement is true about the design goals of the different technologies?

    ADSL was designed to support analog transmission of voice, video, and data.
    Frame Relay was envisioned as a reliable alternative to dedicated leases lines.
