Task 1. Evaluate networks and networking approaches
Aim of the Task This task will assess your understanding of networks and networking approaches.
Learning Outcome(s) of the Task a) discuss the role of networks within different organizations and the resource implications of networks(1.1) 

b) discuss the different distributed computing approaches of peer-to-peer and client-server networks(1.2)

c) explain the functions of client and server computers on a network and give at least one example of interactions between a client and server computer(1.3)

 

d)describe the advantages of client-server approaches particularly over centralized services(1.4)

Questions:Give BRIEF answers to the following:1. Discuss the main role of a network in an educational institute and Retail sector.

2. Draw a diagram of Pear to pear and client server network and discuss the functionality of each network with examples.

3. Most organisations used centralised services. Eg: Air Line reservation use central database for booking flights. Discuss the advantages of client server approach over centralised services.

 

Merit: To achieve M1 effective judgements will have to be made in order to accurately identify and discuss advantages according to client sever approach according to the examples.

 

 

 

Task 2. Investigate basic hardware components and the role of network operating system NOS) softwareExplore the connection of network components

f)     Determine a cabling and hardware connection configuration for a given site. Identify relevant parameters and protocols (3.4, 3.6)

ScenarioA small import/export organization is planning to upgrade its computer networking arrangements. The organization employing twenty five people is located in a city centre office with a warehouse located ten miles away. The current system is paper/centralized services based.The new requirement is for;

  • Receptionists (2) to have access to a centralized customer records database.
  • Order Processing Staff (4) to have access to the customer records database, transportation web sites via the internet, and secure payment facilities.
  • Warehouse Staff (6) who require computerized handling instructions.
  • Sales and Marketing (4) to have remote access to customer database.
  • Executive Management Team (3); access to a secure Management Database.

Additionally all staff to have access to a hosted email service and a company Intranet.
