1. Objectives:
The Project Work is designed to help students develop practical ability and knowledge about the concepts and techniques which they have studied from 2nd to 6th semester. The project “Designing a campus network” will help a student to practice the concepts such as configuring a switch, a router configuration (generic), routing protocol specific router configuration and also in creating a secured campus Network,

The project course titled “Project: Designing a Campus Network” bearing the subject code BNT604 is of 8 credits weightage. The project has to be completed in duration of 240 Hours.

2. Hardware Requirements:



A PC/ Laptop with minimal specification: eg. PIV processor, 2 GB RAM, 256 GB HDD Internet Connectivity - recommended – 2Mbps Broadband link to connect to remote Networking Lab

3. Software Requirements:



Operating System: Windows 2000 / ME / NT / XP / Vista, UNIX, Linux Simulators like GNS3, Cisco packet tracer and SemSim

Note: The project work can be completed using the Remote Lab facility available for the B.Sc.NT Program. However, the students may also use any of the simulators available online to complete this project activity. Popular simulators available online include: GNS3, Cisco packet tracer, SemSim etc.

4. Indicative list of projects
Project 1: Securing the a Switched Network

Objective


To set up a switched network with static mac address and enable port security configurations to prevent any unauthorized access.

Required Resources


PC with Windows XP




Internet connectivity.
Correct URL or IP address to access the remote labs.

Network Topology

The topology above describes a portion of a large enterprise network. This example network comprises of one switched triangular network having Core Switch, Switch 1, Switch 2 and a triangular router network consisting of Core Router, Router 1, and Router 2.

Activity:
Switches learn MAC addresses dynamically because of which the switch by default does not provide any security from unauthorized network access. In the today’s world maintaining security and confidentiality of data in a corporate environment is a huge challenge. In this project, the students will gain access to switch S1/S2. They are required to ensure that the switches allow network access only for the known devices. This can be done by configuring static MAC address on interface Fa0/2. This interface should also be configured for port security where in any other MAC address other than the one permitted will shut the interface. The routers can be used as end computer and using their MAC address as static address on the switch, this project outcome can be verified.

To accomplish this task the student has to do the initial switch configuration, change the address learning from dynamic to static and enable switch port security.

Project 2: Switching

Objective



To set up a switched network with static VLANs and dynamic VLANs using VTP. Configure Inter VLAN routing between the VLAN's of the network.

Required Resources
