    1. Networking Concepts Simulating Network Communications

    2. Lesson Objectives • Introduce fundamental networking concepts • Motivate the need for managed networks to achieve effective communication

    3. Remote Communications Evolution • Smoke Signals • Telegraph • Telephone • Email • Shared Devices • Instant Messaging

    4. Infrastructure • Cables and Wireless • Messaging Protocols • Device Addressing

    5. Exercise #1 • In our first exercise, each person will play the role of a network node • Our initial network only supports direct (node-to-node) physical connections • Set up a connection to each node with which you would like to communicate • Communicate by sending your message across the wire to the receiver

    6. Point-to-Point

    7. Objectives For #1 • Sense the empowerment (and security) at being able to directly connect (no middle-man) • Gain an appreciation for the lack of scalability of a point-to-point solution • Understand the basic flow of communications in this most basic network configuration

    8. Improvement Opportunities • Q: How many wires would be needed to connect everyone to everyone? • Telephone operators and switchboards • The concept of a router creates new possibilities

    9. Exercise #2 • In our second exercise, we introduce the concept of a router • To facilitate communication from anywhere – to anywhere, all communication goes from a node to the router then on to the destination node • Communicate by sending your message to the router (the router will pass it on to the receiver

    10. Router

    11. Objectives For #2 • An appreciation for the expanded number of communication opportunities • An appreciation for the reduced complexity and reduction in connections • Sympathy for the poor router

    12. Improvement Opportunities • Q: Now how many wires would be needed to connect everyone to everyone? • Much more scalable, but how can we make life easier for the router? • Unique addressing removes some of the router’s burden

    13. Exercise #3 • In our third exercise, we introduce the concept of addressing • To improve the efficiency of our network, each node is given a unique address • Communicate by addressing your message then sending it to the router

    14. Multiple Routers with Addressing

    15. Objectives For #3 • An basic understanding of addressing • An appreciation for the efficiency improvements it brings to the router • A sense of the confusion it can bring to the users

    16. Lesson Summary • Communications networks quickly grow in complexity • Routers provide a means for scaling efficiently • The abstract concept of addressing makes the router’s job easier
