Wide Area Networking &Internetworking

Unit 7, Chapter 13 & 14

How do they talk to each other?

  • Summarize the characteristics and capabilities of a wide area network (WAN).
  • Identify distinguishing attributes of WANs as compared to LANs.
  • Identify the devices that are used in constructing WANs.
wide area networks
Wide Area Networks
  • General Design hybrid of a star, hierarchical and mesh topologies
  • Usually lease or use from communication carriers
    • Provide plain circuits
    • Additional services packet switching, frame relay, ATM, ISDN
    • Companies want Convience (and great service)
network signaling
Network Signaling
  • Signaling required to manage the network and perform certain functions
    • Dial tone, on the hook, off the hook
  • Control signals are sent as part of the protocol
  • Tone Signaling
    • Generation of tone or combination of tones which tell the CO switch what number is being dialed
  • Signaling System 7 (SS7)
    • Used between switches
    • Carried over independent channels from the voice circuits
    • Common Channel Interoffice Signaling (CCIS)
      • Carry multiple voice channel signaling
    • Optimized for digital networks
packet data networks
Packet Data Networks
  • Packet Data Networks – Packet Switching Networks or Packet Network
  • Developed by Advanced Research Projects Agency
  • Packets sent through the network from source to destination
  • No physical link is established
  • Packets from other nodes is interspersed on the network
  • Messages are disassembled and reassembled
  • Designed with multiple high-speed paths
packet switching techniques
Packet Switching Techniques
  • 2 Methods to handle stream of packets
  • Datagrams
      • Connection-less circuit
      • Each packet handled independently by the network
      • No guarantee delivery
  • Virtual Circuits
      • Connection Oriented circuit
      • Route established through the network
      • Call request packet sent first, route determined
      • Virtual circuit number is assigned, call accept is returned
      • Virtual circuit number used for communication
      • When communication is complete, clear packet request is sent
routing traffic
Routing Traffic
  • Routing – How to create the virtual circuit or route the individual packets to its destination
  • Connection Oriented Routing - VC
  • Connectionless Routing – Packet Switching
  • Centralized Routing
    • Simple
    • Usually used in a stat hierarchy
    • Static routes
routing traffic8
Routing Traffic
  • Distributed Routing
    • Responsibility for building and maintaining routing tables on some nodes in network
    • Avoids single point of failure
  • Static & Dynamic Routing
    • Static Routes are fixed
    • Dynamic Routes can change
    • Dynamic routing determines best path through network, difficult to implement
  • Broadcast Routing
    • Used by CSMA/CD protocol
    • Broadcast all packets to all stations at all times
    • Not efficient and not useable on large networks
congestion control
Congestion Control
  • Congestion – traffic arrives faster than it can be handled
  • Transmission delay increases as well as retransmission of packets
  • Manage by reducing flow of packets on the network
  • Choke Packet – sent to sources of traffic to tell them to slow the flow down
  • Quality of Service (QOS) is a way to allow certain traffic to have priority over others
delays queing
Delays & Queing
  • Propagation Delay
    • Time to get a signal from sender to receiver
    • LAN Delays usually about 1ms
    • WAN delay is longer due to distance and technology
  • Switching Delay – Delay moving data through switches and routers
  • Queuing Delay – Too much too fast
  • Queuing Theory – Analysis of queues and queuing
specific wan systems
Specific WAN Systems
  • X.25
    • Popular in Europe
    • Defines interface between computer and packet data network
    • 3 Standard Layers –
      • Packet – VC Service, up to 4095 VCs on one physical network
      • Link
      • Physical (X.21)
  • Frame Relay
    • More efficient than X.25, for high speed networks
    • ¼ the overhead of a packet switching technology
    • Not as good at congestion control
    • Control Plane – Establish and terminate connections
    • User Plane – Data Transfer
    • 2 Separate channels for planes
    • Committed Information Rate (CIR): guaranteed throughput speed, vendor may discard anything over CIR
    • Port Speed – Maximum speed that the circuit can communicate. 256KB Port speed / 64KB CIR
specific wan systems asynchronous transfer mode atm
Specific WAN SystemsAsynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)
  • Developed to reduce delays that can occur on Frame Relay
  • Cell Relay
  • Evolution of Frame Relay
  • 53 Byte Fixed Sized Cells (Thought to be the optimum size)
  • Real Time Service (Voice & Video)
    • Constant Bit Rate (CBR) – Fixed and continuously available bandwidth
    • Real-Time Variable Bit Rate (rt-VBR) – Bursty communications
  • Non-real Time Services
    • Non-Real Time Variable Bit Rate Services (nrt-VBR)
      • Fast Response Time Can Tolerate Some Delay
    • Available Bit Rate Service (ABR)
      • Define Maximum Rate to be used and Minimum required, provide at least minimum
    • Unspecified Bit Rate (UBR)
      • As available basis
specific wan systems asynchronous transfer mode atm13
Specific WAN SystemsAsynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)
  • Synchrounous Optical Network (SONET)
    • Standard for sending data on fiber between carriers
    • Optical Carrier LevelData Rate
    • OC-1 51.84 Mbps
    • OC-3 155.52 Mbps
