Computer Networks with Internet Technology

Chapter 01

Data Networks and

The Internet

data networks
Data Networks
  • Communication by transmitting data intermediate switching nodes
  • Switching nodes not concerned with content
  • End devices referred to as stations
    • Computers, terminals, telephones, etc.
  • Nodes connected in some topology by transmission links
  • Station attaches to node
  • Collection of nodes is a communications network
circuit switching
Circuit Switching
  • Dedicated path between two stations
    • Connected sequence of links between nodes
    • E.g telephone network
  • Communication involves three phases
    • Circuit establishment
    • Data transfer
    • Circuit disconnect
circuit establishment
Circuit Establishment
  • Station A to node 4 requesting connection to station E
  • Circuit from A to 4 usually dedicated line
  • Node 4 finds next leg to node 6
  • Based on routing information, availability, cost, node 4 selects circuit to node 5
  • Allocates a free channel
    • TDM [time-division multiplexing]
    • FDM [frequency-division multiplexing]
  • Node 4 requests connection to E
  • And so on
data transfer
Data Transfer
  • Data may be digital (e.g., terminal to host) or analog (e.g., voice)
  • Signaling and transmission may each be digital or analog
  • Path is A-4 circuit, internal switching through 4, 4-5 channel, internal switching through 5, 5-6 channel, internal switching through 6, 6-E circuit
  • Generally, full duplex (data in both directions)
circuit disconnect
Circuit Disconnect
  • Connection terminated
    • Usually by one of the stations
  • Signals to 4, 5, and 6 to de-allocate resources
circuit switching notes
Circuit Switching - Notes
  • Connection established before data transmission begins
  • Channel capacity must be available and reserved.
  • Nodes must have capacity to handle connection
  • Switches must have intelligence to make allocations and devise route
  • Can be inefficient
    • Capacity dedicated for duration of connection
      • Even if no data are being transferred
    • For voice, utilization high, but still doesn’t approach 100%
    • For terminal connection, may be idle most of the time
    • Delay prior to data transfer for call establishment
    • Once circuit established, network transparent to users
    • Data transmitted at fixed rate
      • No delay other than propagation
      • Delay at node negligible
packet switching
Packet Switching
  • 1970
  • Evolved substantially since
  • Basic technology fundamentally the same today
  • One of few effective technologies for long-distance data communications
  • Frame relay and ATM (see later) variations
  • Carries directly to Internet
  • Advantages: flexibility, resource sharing, robustness, responsiveness
  • Cost: elaborate algorithms to cope with time delay and overhead penalties of network operation
packet switching circuit switching issues
Packet Switching – Circuit Switching Issues
  • Designed for voice
  • Resources dedicated to particular call
  • For voice, high utilization
    • Most of the time, someone is talking
  • For data 
    • Line idle much of the time
    • Constant data rate
      • Limits interconnection of variety of host computers and terminals
packet switching basic operation
Packet Switching – Basic Operation
  • Data are transmitted in short blocks, called packets
  • Typical upper bound 1000 octets (bytes)
  • Longer messages broken up into series of packets
    • Each packet contains part (or all for short message) of user's data plus some control information
    • Control information includes network routing
    • At each node, packet is received, stored briefly, and passed on to the next node
  • Transmitting computer sends message as sequence of packets
  • Packet includes control information including destination station
  • Packets sent to node to which sending station attaches
  • Node stores packet briefly, determines next leg of route, and queues packet to go out on that link
  • When link is available, packet is transmitted to next node
  • All packets eventually work their way through network
packet switching advantages
Packet Switching – Advantages
  • Line efficiency greater
    • Node-to-node link dynamically shared by many packets
  • Data-rate conversion
    • Each station connects to its node at its proper data rate
    • Nodes act as buffers
  • Packets accepted, even under heavy traffic, but delivery delay increases
    • Circuit switching networks would block new connections
  • Priorities can be used
packet switching disadvantages
Packet Switching – Disadvantages
  • Delay
    • Transmission delay equal to length of packet divided by incoming channel rate
    • Variable delay due to processing and queuing
  • Packets may vary in length
    • May take different routes
    • May be subject to varying delays
    • Overall packet delay can vary substantially (jitter)
    • Not good for real-time applications like voice and real-time video
  • Overheads including address of destination, sequencing information added to packet
    • Reduces capacity available for user data
  • More processing required at node
switching technique datagram
Switching Technique –Datagram
  • Datagram: each packet treated independently
    • No reference to packets that have gone before
    • Each node chooses next node on path
    • Packets with same destination address do not follow same route
    • May arrive out of sequence
    • Exit node or destination restores packets to original order
    • Packet may be destroyed in transit
    • Either exit node or destination detects loss and recovers
  • Call setup avoided
  • For an exchange of a few packets, datagram quicker
  • More flexible.
    • E.g. Routing away from the congestion
    • Delivery is inherently more reliable
      • If a node fails, subsequent packets may be re-routed
switching technique virtual circuit
Switching Technique –Virtual Circuit
  • Preplanned route established before packets sent
  • All packets follow same route
  • Similar to circuit in circuit-switching network
    • Hence virtual circuit
  • Each packet has virtual circuit identifier
    • Nodes on route know where to direct packets
    • No routing decisions
  • Not dedicated path, as in circuit switching
    • Packet still buffered at node and queued for output
    • Routing decision made oncefor that virtual circuit
  • Network may provide services related to virtual circuit
    • Sequencing and error control
  • Packets should transit more rapidly
  • If node fails, all virtual circuits through node lost
  • Adaptive routing
    • Routing decisions change as conditions on network change
  • Failure of node or trunk
  • Congestion
    • Route around congestion
  • Requires exchange of network state information
    • Tradeoff between quality of information and overhead
frame relay
Frame Relay
  • Considerable overhead in packet-switching schemes to compensate for errors
    • Additional bits added to packet for redundancy
    • Additional processing at stations and nodes to detect and recover from errors
  • Modern systems more reliable
    • Any remaining errors caught in systems above packet-switching logic
  • Original packet-switching networks data rate 64 kbps
  • Frame relay networks up to 2 Mbps
  • Strip out most error control overhead
  • Uses variable-length packets (frames)
asynchronous transfer mode atm or cell relay
Asynchronous Transfer ModeATM or Cell Relay
  • Little overhead for error control
  • Fixed-length packets (cells)
  • Processing overhead reduced
  • Designed to work at 10s, 100s of Mbps, and Gbps
  • Small, fixed-size cells are efficient
    • Can offer constant-data-rate channel using packet-switching
  • Also evolution from circuit switching
  • Allows definition of multiple virtual channels
    • Data rates dynamically defined at virtual channel setup
    • Extends circuit switching to allow multiple channels with data rates set on demand
local area networks lan
Local Area NetworksLAN
  • Small scope
    • Typically single building or a cluster of buildings
    • Leads to different technical solutions
  • Usually LAN owned by same organization that owns attached devices
    • For WANs, a significant fraction of the network assets are not owned.
    • May be a substantial capital investment for both purchase and maintenance.
    • Network management responsibility falls on owner
  • Data rates of LANs typically much greater than WANs
  • Most common are switched LANs and wireless LANs
    • E.g. Ethernet, ATM, Fibre Channel, WiFi (802.11)
      • More later
metropolitan area networks man
Metropolitan Area NetworksMAN
  • Between LANs and WANs
  • Traditional point-to-point and switched networks in WANs inadequate for growing needs of organizations
  • Requirement for high capacity private and public networks at low costs over a large area
    • E.g. Wireless networks, metropolitan extensions to Ethernet
