Instructions

This assessment task requires you to demonstrate your knowledge of routing concepts by completing a number of exercise questions. The questions are designed to help you to achieve the unit learning outcomes as listed in the unit profile.

Instructions

You must do this assignment on your own – it is not a group assignment.

These questions will require more time and effort than the first assignment so plan ahead and start as early as possible.  Question #3 may require additional research and analysis to complete.

Type all your answers in the ‘Template for Your Answers’ Section of this document and upload only that template.  You can do that by copying the Template section into a new Word document for uploading.  Answers that are not typed into the “Template for Your Answers” section may not be marked, or may be returned to you for re-typing and re-submission – late penalties will apply.

Where instructed, you must show the steps you took to arrive at your answers. Write your answers in your own words to avoid potential plagiarism and copyright violations.

You must submit the Answer section as a Word file (.doc or .docx).  Do not submit PDF’s or any other type of file without express permission from the Unit Coordinator.

Plagiarism Procedures can be found in the CQUniversity Policies section of the Unit Profile. 

Assessment Requirements and Marking Criteria

There are 3 main questions each with sub-questions and the requirements are stated for each one.  You must answer all questions and their sub-questions.   Marks are indicated in the Answer Template.

The questions will be marked on correctness, logic and clarity, and addressing all parts of the question.  

The Assignment Questions begin on the next page. 

REMEMBER, USE THE ANSWER TEMPLATE FOR ALL YOUR ANSWERS 

Question 1  – Routing                                                                                   (10 marks)

Given the following network diagram, assume that all the networks shown are aware of each other and have fully updated routing tables.  Answer the questions that follow.

The questions (1 mark each except q.8):

  1. From the point of view of router R4, what is the next-hop address for a packet addressed to host 161.22.0.15/18?
  2. From the point of view of router R1, which of its interfaces would it choose for a packet being sent to network 161.22.0.0/18?
  3. A host with an IP address of 200.11.60.36/24 has just sent a packet to a host with address 150.32.0.240/18. How many hops is required between source and destination?
  4. A packet originating from network 220.10.40.0/24 arrives at router R1, however, R1 determines that the destination network is not in its routing table. What does R1 do with the packet?  
  5. A packet arrives at router R2 with a destination address of 140.21.0.10/22. Which interface port does R2 forward the packet out of?
  6. A packet at router R3 has a destination address of 220.10.40.5/26. What next-hop address would R3 use for this packet?  
  7. A packet is waiting at router R4 for forwarding. If the next-hop was a “direct delivery”, which of these three networks is the destination network?  3.0.0/16, or 150.32.0.0/18, or 220.10.40.0/24?
  8. Complete the information in the routing table for router R2 as shown in the Answer Template for networks 150.3.0.0/16, 150.32.0.0/18, and the Default network. Show the masks in longest mask order using CIDR format (3 marks). 

Question 2 – Fragmentation in IPv4                                                                       (5 marks)

An IP datagram 5,400 bytes long with no options arrives at a router, which determines that the next destination has an MTU of 1,500 bytes.  Use the Answer Template to complete the following questions, showing your calculations and reasoning. 

  1. Assuming that the router decides to fragment the packet into 4 fragments, determine a correct size for each fragment, and identify the starting byte and ending byte of each fragment (2.5 marks).
  2. Calculate the fragmentation offset for each fragment (1.5 marks).
  3. State whether the total number of bytes from all 4 fragments leaving the router will be greater than the initial datagram size that arrived, or less than the initial datagram size, and the reason (1 mark).

Question 3 – Congestion controls in TCP                                                  (10 marks)

This question affords you the opportunity to extend your thinking about congestion controls in TCP beyond the textbook to observe what a real-world technology company, Google, is doing in this space. 

First, read this Network World article that reports on Google’s approach to improving congestion controls in TCP:

You should also read the following more technical paper about

After reading both articles, answer the following questions:

  1. Write a brief summary of the congestion controls currently available in TCP as covered in this Unit (1 mark)
  2. Identify and explain two problems with current congestion controls in TCP that are pointed out in the articles (2 marks)
  3. Summarize in your own words the difference(s) between the current TCP congestion controls and Google’s new BBR protocol (3 marks)
  4. The Network World article points out that it is difficult to get a new protocol accepted as a global standard for TCP/IP. Why do you think this is the case?   Give carefully thought out reasons for your answer.  (4 marks)

Important:  for every direct quotation you use from these two sources or any other source, you must immediately, after the quote, provide your own explanation of the quotation (for example, explain why are you quoting it, how does it help answer the question, how does it support what you are saying?) – marks will be deducted for failure to do so.  In addition, correct referencing conventions must be used throughout your work using the Harvard referencing convention.  Your answers will be marked on clarity, logic, relevance, use of own words and fully addressing all parts of each question.

Remember that quotations alone will not be accepted as your explanation of the questions.  Quotations can support your explanations, but you must still provide the explanations yourself.   Best way forward is to keep direct quotations to a minimum, and use your own words.

5600-20 = 5580

1st Fragment size 1480 bytes

Offset = 0

Byte range: 0 – 1479

2nd fragment size 1480 bytes

Offset = 1480

 Byte range = 1480 – 2959

3rd fragment size 1480

Offset = 2960

Byte range; 2960 – 4439

4th fragment size 1140 (= 5580-1480-1480-1480)

Offset = 4440

Byte range: 4440 - 5580

The actual size is 1480 which is less than the total size of the 4 fragments where the MTU size is 1500.

Question 3: (10 marks)

1.

When sender send an amount of packets to the receiver which can be cause of the congestion. TCP/IP has a policy for controlling the congestion.

1

2.

The main problem with TCP congestion control is TCP slow down the network. Another problem is TCP drops the packets.

2

3.

Google’s new BBR protocol does not slow down the network but TCP does.

4.

It is very difficult to adopt a new protocol over TCP/IP because almost 90% of internet users are use it.
