During this course, you will be introduced to a variety of Network Management topics, all of which you will encounter again and again here at DeVry and in your professional career.
In this week, you will prepare a research report in which you will summarize and present what you have learned this week in your Introduction. Each exercise must be completed on a separate page of your report.
This week, you will prepare a research report that thoroughly answers the following three exercise questions. Each exercise should be prepared on a separate page of your report.
- Exercise 10 of Chapter 12 on page 505: The network shown in Figure 12.44 on page 506 is an MPLS network with all routers configured as Label-Switching Routers (LSRs). The paths (LSPs) are determined using TE (Traffic Engineering). The address of each router is x.x.x.x where x is the router number, for example, 188.8.131.52. Explain your reasoning and fill in the R2 routing table:
- for paths with no tunnels and
- for paths with tunnels T1 and T2.
- Exercise 6 of Chapter 13 on page 553: Cable modems on the coaxial part of the topology of an HFC configuration shown in Figure 13.3 on page 510 are a tree structure. Cable modems with Ethernet stations resemble an Ethernet LAN. Contrast an HFC coaxial broadband LAN with a regular Ethernet LAN on: (a) topology, (b) downstream protocol, and (c) upstream protocol.
- Exercise 6 of Chapter 14 on page 582:
- What MIB table would you use to measure the QoS of service flow in a fixed wireless system between the base station and the subscriber station?
- Define latency and jitter for service flow in a fixed wireless system.
- Write the specific managed objects associated with latency and jitter.
The Project Report template link can be found on the Assignments page. The report should be at least two pages long of text (pictures are additional), font size 12, and double spaced. Your report should follow this format. Below is the grading rubric for the Week 7 Paper.
The following grading rubric is for the Week 7 Project Report.
|Documentation and Formatting||6||20||A quality paper will include a title page, abstract, proper citations using APA style, and a bibliography.|
|Organization and Cohesiveness||6||20||A quality paper will include an introduction based upon a well-formed thesis statement.

In a quality paper, the conclusion will summarize the previously presented content and will complement the thesis statement from the introduction.|
|Editing||6||20||A quality paper will be free of any spelling, punctuation, or grammatical errors. Sentences and paragraphs will be clear, concise, and factually correct.|
|Content||12||40||A quality paper will have significant scope and depth of research to support any statements. Strategic implications will be explained and supported. Relevant illustrations or examples are encouraged. A quality paper will employ use of sound reasoning and logic to reinforce conclusions.|
|Total||30||100||A quality paper will meet or exceed all of the above requirements.|
