Key information • Submission Due: o Part A: 10/05/2019 (oral presentation) o Part B: 11:59PM 10/05/2019 (technical report) • Weighting: 40% (30% technical report and 10% oral presentation) • Word count: 2,000 words (technical report), 7-9 minutes (oral presentation) • Assignment type: Individual • Each student will be allocated a topic by the lecturer during the week 3 lab class Learning Outcomes This assessment assesses the following Subject Learning Outcomes (SLO): a. identify fundamental concepts of communication systems b. describe the basic structures of computer, data and telecommunication networks c. compare the difference between analogue and digital communications and their uses d. describe appropriate network standards for a small to medium sized enterprise telecommunication solution Purposes This assessment allows you to demonstrate your ability to describe computer systems and telecommunication networks including concepts of networks, protocols, services and security aspects. You will need to investigate and choose the appropriate network protocol, procedures and tools at your disposal to high-level design and analyze small and medium size networks and users. You will be assessed on your ability to collect network information based on the real-world scenario described below, analyze the gathered information and propose feasible solutions with appropriate justification given for the type of network and services. Deliverables • Oral Presentation (Part A) • Professional Report style of about 2000 words excluding table of contents and appendix (Part B) Instructions Consider the requirements allocated to you as in Appendix A and propose a solution for a SME (small medium enterprise) company (less than 100 employees). You need to create a company and appropriate businesses based on the type of network and services given by the lecturer. Part A (10%) Bachelor of Information Technology BIT121: Network Communications Concepts Assignment Page 2 In addition to the development of a written report, you will need to deliver an oral presentation discussing your report. Your presentation should introduce your scenario, and describe the SME network solutions that you have proposed or identified. Your oral presentation must last between seven and nine minutes in duration. You will present to your peers using a slide pack created by you to guide and engage your audience. The slide pack will contain a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 12 slides excluding cover and reference pages. Part B (30%) This part of the report builds on Part B by proposing an SME network. You will need to consider: 1. Design and propose a network solution for SME users including End to end scenarios as per the requirements in Appendix A 2. Contents must include the headings and contents below: o Cover page: Title of report, submission date, your name and student number o Introduction: Background information including an overview of the network and solutions and the aims of your design. Include a company profile and businesses. o Requirements: Discuss what the solution requires to deliver which services and capacity o Solution Design ▪ Network Topologies ▪ Solution Description ▪ Services and Applications ▪ Interfaces and Technologies o Analysis and Evaluation: Assess the solution with how the requirements have been met with critical evaluation o Conclusion: A summary of your report, discussing the importance of the proposed solution. o Citation and References: A list of any information you have paraphrased and drawn on throughout the report including proper citation according to the template used. 3. Refer to the sample document below for network design, and consider how to implement an SME services onto the network. This is an example only and any part of them should not be copied in your report. A heavy penalty may apply for any copied contents from the sample. Submission guide 1. Use the template below for your report, which should be submitted in MS WORD format to the Moodle link.

Late Submission Late submission of assignments will be penalised as follows: • For assignments up to 10 calendar days late, a penalty of 5% (of total available marks) will apply per day. For example, an assignment submitted 2 hours late will incur a 5% penalty. For assignments not submitted within 10 calendar days, a penalty of 100% will apply. In other words, the assignment will be zero marked. • Your submission files must be compatible with the software in Melbourne Polytechnic, Computer Laboratories/Classrooms. Extensions: Under normal circumstances, extensions will not be granted. In the case of extenuating circumstances—such as illness—a Special Consideration form, accompanied by supporting documentation, must be received before 3 working days from the due date. If granted, an extension will be granted only by the time period stated on the documentation. For example, if the illness medical certificate was for one day, an extension will be granted for one day only. Accordingly, the student must submit within that time limit. Penalties may apply for late submission without an approved extension. Penalties: Academic misconduct such as cheating and plagiarism incur penalties ranging from a zero result to program exclusion. Marking Guide Part A (10%) • A.1: Presentation slides (5%): Structure with proper and necessary contents such as figures, tables and points made. No copied contents are allowed, and they should be created by yourself. • A.2: Presentation skills (5%): Clarity in discussing how an SME network has been designed to address the requirements and deliver solutions Part B (30%) • Collection of Information (10%) • Analysis of information (30%) • Feasibility of solution and Requirements (30%) • Justification of solution to Requirements (30%) Marking rubric: See appendix B Bachelor of Information Technology BIT121: Network Communications Concepts Assignment Page 4 Appendix A: Requirements • A type of network and service will be allocated for each student, who will discuss with the lecturer for a selection. • You need to create a company and business according to the network/service type given, and justify why you chose the business. Include the number of employees, branches, locations, and customers and services required. • Create a section to describe 'requirements', which can be used to propose a solution. You need to include detailed information of network nodes, interfaces, services, hosts, end to end connections, technologies, security aspects, protocols etc. These requirements should be enough to design a solution. • Write a report including sections and headings as instructed. Assume that your report is being presented to your customer as a high-level solution description. Your oral presentation is regarded as a sales meeting with your customer who expressed an interest with a type of network and service allocated. • The number of users can be up to 100 as an SME company. • Communication network types and services that can be used to propose a solution are as below, and an example of network topology is provided for each type. You need to create your own network topology to meet the requirements you developed for your customer. 1. Hosted VoIP Business Phone System 2. IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) 3. PSTN 4. Internet 5.
