3. Protocols



  • What is makes up the Telecommunications Network Model?

  • What are the two categories of media?

  • Name the different media?

  • What is the difference between a digital and analog signal?

  • List the 4 different types of networks?

  • What type of network is on slide 4?


Telecommunications nw model
Telecommunications NW Model:

  • A telecommunications network is any arrangement where

    • A sender transmits a message

    • To a receiver

    • Over a channel

    • Consisting of some sort of medium


Different media
Different Media:

  • Wired (or …….) and Wireless (…………)

  • See next slides


Telecommunications media
Telecommunications Media

  • Twisted-Pair Wire

    • Ordinary telephone wire

    • Copper wire is twisted into pairs


Telecommunications media1
Telecommunications Media

  • Coaxial Cable

    • Sturdy copper oraluminum wire wrappedwith spacers to insulateand protect it


Telecommunications media2
Telecommunications Media

  • Fiber-Optic Cable

    • One or more hair-thinfilaments of glass fiber wrapped in a protective jacket


Analog versus digital
Analog versus Digital

  • Analog or digital refers to the method used to convert information into an electrical signal

    • Analog: an electrical current is generated that is proportional to the quantity being observed

    • Digital: the quantity being observed is expressed as a number


Digital network technologies
Digital Network Technologies

  • Telecommunications are being revolutionized by switch from analog to digital

    • Analog: voice-oriented transmission

    • Digital: discrete pulse transmission

  • Benefits

    • Higher transmission speeds

    • Moves larger amounts of information

    • Greater economy and much lower error rates

    • Transmits multiple types of communications (data, voice, video) on the same circuits


Virtual private network
Virtual Private Network:

  • A network is private, when only authorized users can access the network.

  • So instead leasing lines and services from an ISP, a company can use the internet by isolating a part of it for private use: creating a “tunnel” through the internet or any public network.

  • This is done by implementing sophisticated security measures. See next slide.


Vpn cont
VPN (cont.)

  • Used to establish secure intranets and extranets

    • The Internet is the main backbone network

    • Relies on network firewalls, encryption, and other security features to build a “pipe” through the Internet

    • Creates a private network without the high cost of a separate proprietary connection


Vpn p188
VPN (p188)

  • Intranet:

  • Extranet:


Switching techniques
Switching Techniques

  • How can computers or nodes link to each other on the network:

    • Circuit switching: dedicated channel (path or circuit) established for duration of transmission

    • Packet switching: message broken into packets

  • Packet: group of bits transmitted together


Switching tech cont
Switching Tech. (cont.)

  • Frame relay: high-speed packet-switching protocol used in WANs

    • Variable-sized packets routed quickly

    • Better ratio of data bits to non-data bits

  • Multi-protocol label switching: enhances services like VoIP.

    • Still broken into packages, but all will use the same path on the network



  • Protocol: set of rules governing communication between computers

  • Protocol is like human language and basic understanding

  • Some protocols designed for WANs, LANs, and wireless communications

  • Most important set of protocols called TCP/IP


Tcp ip

  • TCP/IP: Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol

    • Ensures packets arrive accurately

    • Ensures delivery of packets from node to node, respectively

  • Internet backbone: highest speed channels

  • Host: computer connect directly to backbone

  • IP number: unique identification for device

  • DNS: Domain Name Service maintains character-based names of IP numbers


What is your pc s ip address
What is your PC’s IP Address?

  • Start > All Programs > Accessories

    Command Prompt > ENTER

  • Type: ipconfig

  • So, what is your IP address

Let s check for google
Let’s check for GOOGLE!!

  • Still in command prompt:

  • Type: ping

  • If you are having connectivity problems, you can use the ping command to check the destination IP address you want to reach and record the results. The ping command displays whether the destination responded and how long it took to receive a reply.

Google com

  • OPEN the browser and type in the address the ip address of google and ENTER

  • What is the DNS service doing?

Tcp ip continued
TCP/IP (continued)

  • Static IP number: permanent number assigned to device

  • Dynamic IP number: temporary IP number assigned for duration of connection


Ip or url address
IP or URL Address:

  • The Uniform Resource Locator is an address that points to a specific resource on the Web


    • http:// protocol for Web pages

    • is the Domain name: it identifies the computer that stores the Web pages

    • Jengk/ is the directory path; identifies where the page is store on the computer

    • Useless.html is the document name or web page



  • Ethernet: LAN protocol using coaxial cable, also known as IEEE 802.3

  • Gigabit Ethernet: faster Ethernet connections

  • Devices on network contend with other devices for transmission time

  • CSMA/CD protocol ensures no collisions in transmission

    • 802.11g Max speed 54 Mbps all in range 2.4-2.5 GHz

  • Access point: Wi-Fi router connects to AP that connects to the Internet.

  • Access point (hotspot): allows Internet access within range of equipment

  • Encryption: ability to scramble and code messages

    • Use keys shared between sender and receiver

The future of networking technologies
The Future of Networking Technologies:

  • Broadband Telephoning: VoIP

  • Radio Frequency Identification: RFID

  • Converging Technologies:


Broadband telephoning
Broadband Telephoning:

  • Voice over Internet Protocol: uses Internet connection to conduct telephone conversations using VoIP.

  • Regular telephone companies charge according to number of minutes a call last

  • ISP charge customers a flat monthly connection fee for connection to Internet

  • Three different topologies:


  • PC-to-PC

  • PC-to-Phone

  • Phone-to-Phone

Pc to pc

  • In this model, both caller and receiver must have Internet phone equipment (VoIP) to talk to each other.

  • The call is routed through an ISP such as Netcom.

  • Both caller and receiver must have their computers on to complete calls

Pc to phone

  • These calls are routed like a normal telephone call, except:

    • The PC must have Internet phone equipment

  • A call is dialed to the ISP, routed back through the internet backbone

  • And then sent back to the voive phone network

Phone to phone

  • One caller would dial a code, similar to a long-distance code

  • The ISP gateway will rout the call through the Internet and

  • Then converts it the signal back to the voice phone network upon reaching its connection.

Advantages disadvantages

  • P202, 203

  • VoIP becomes portable

Radio frequency identification
Radio Frequency Identification

  • RFID tags tiny and need little power

  • Objects are embedded with tags that contain a transponder:

    • It’s a radio ‘transmitter-receiver’ that is activated for transmission by a signal that is transmitted to it

    • The tag has a digital memory with a unique EPC



  • The interrogator

    • An Arial

    • Transceiver

    • Decoder

  • Emits a signal activating the RFID tag so that the interrogator can READ/WRITE data to it

  • Readers decode data stored in tag’s memory and data passed to host computer


  • How do companies apply this technology to the supply chain?

Converging technologies
Converging Technologies

  • WebTV technologies allows one to add a set-top box to a TV set, so that one can access also the World Wide Web: connecting to the Internet

    • So TV technology and Web technology converges in WebTV

  • Cell phones can act as Web phones

  • Wireless technologies combined in same device enhance functionality



  • Telecommunications is communication over distance

  • Telecommunications technology has changed the business environment

  • Different media have different bandwidths

  • Networks are classified according to reach and complexity

  • Network can be turned into a virtual private network (VPN)


Summary continued
Summary (continued)

  • Two ways to switch a communication line: packet switching and circuit switching

  • Network protocols are sets of rules to which all devices on network must adhere

  • The Internet adheres to the TCP/IP protocol

  • Wireless technologies make it easy and affordable to create wireless LANs

  • Organizations and individuals have variety of choices when subscribing to networking services
