Business Dat
a Communications and Networking,
1
1
th

edition



An electronic copy of the textbook will be provided via OnCourse.


The o
bjective of this course is to provide a basic understanding of the technical and management
aspects of
data communications and networking infrastructure
.
By the end of the course you will
be able to:



Explain how networks such as the Internet move messages from one
computer

to another
though the different hardware and software components
;



Design
a
network

infrastructure

(at a novice level) using a variety of LAN, backbone and
WAN technologies and compon
ents
;



Recognize the major
decisions needed in managing network infrastructure in organizations
(e.g.,
network security
) and understand which options are likely to lead to better
performance
.


Learning is not a spectator sport. I expect you to attend class
es, participate in discussions and
actively think about the topics

in the course
. If you miss a class, you are responsible for
obtaining information
about the

missed classes from
podcasts,
other students, etc.

I’m happy to
help if you don’t understand some
thing you’ve missed.

This syllabus provides a general plan for the course, but some deviations may be necessary.
Additional information about the exams,
quizzes,
assignments, labs, and projects will be
provided in class

and in OnCourse
. The scheduled due dates for assignments,

labs and project
activities are subject to change, but all changes will be discussed in class

and announced in
OnC
o
urse
. All students must take exams at the scheduled times except for
emergencies.
This
course will be conducted in accordance with the Kelle
y School of Business Undergraduate
Program Honor Code. Any student found to be in violation of the Honor Code will be dealt with
according to Indiana University and Kelley School of Business guidelines. See:
http://www.kelley.iu.edu/ugrad/honorcode.cfm




Individual Quiz and Team Quiz

The
re
is an
individual quiz and
a

team quiz. The quizzes will cover material in the last
two
chapters

of the
book

(11 and 12)
that I have
not

“taught
.
” Th
ese chapters

cover more managerial
topics that lend themselves to
learning

via cases
, rather than lectures
. The goal of the quizzes is
to assess your readiness to
work on the cases
. You
are

responsible for reading the book and
coming to class ready to do the quiz. You will take
the

quiz
first
as an individual and then t
he
same

quiz a second time as a team.


Assignments

The goal of the assignments is to help you prepare for the exams.
Assignments are due at the
start of class on the scheduled day
, because w
e will go through the assignment
answers
in class
so you can pin
point the areas in which you need additional work prior to the exam.
Assignments
are to be submitted via OnCourse
. Assignments are designed to be learning tools to help prepare
for the exams. All assignments
must be written individually

(each person must
turn in his or her
own assignment),

but you
can
work in
your
team
s to discuss the
assignment
questions.

I will
assign a
ny student
who

makes a reasonable attempt at all assignment questions full points.

Class Participation

The class participation points will be awarded for
two activities. The first is
contributing to the
class discussions, whether through answering the questions I ask or
by
asking questions
or
making points
that add to our understanding.
The second is by annotating the electronic textbook
and sharing those annotations with the class. In

all cases, q
uality counts; quantity does not.

I’ll
explain more about this in class.


Team Projects

The two projects

are

to be done in teams of 4 people

(3

or
5 team members are OK)
. You are to
form and manage your own teams. All members of the team are

expected to contribute to the
project. If some member(s) of the team do not contribute, you must ask them to leave the team
(and I will assign individual project
(s)

in place of the team project
(s)

whose maximum grade will
be a B). It is a violation of t
he Honor Code to claim that a non
-
contributing team member
participated in a team report or presentation.


Network Report Project
.
The purpose of the
network report
project is to provide the opportunity
for you to
investigate

and present a synopsis of a
current network
design

used by a real
organization.
Your team will need to find an organization that is willing to participate. Most
large organizations have large networks, so if you choose to work with a large organization you
should focus on
a subset

of the
overall
network. If you have questions about how to scope the
size of your project, please ask me.


This

project has two parts. The first and most important part is a report of
about
5 pages
(more
or less is OK)
that describes the organization's

network (e.g., circuits,
switches
, routers). The
report should include a network diagram as well as text that describes the network hardware and
software. The report should also discuss
other interesting aspects of the network, such as

good
and bad
aspects of the network, current problems, future plans, etc.
.

Photographs are nice if you
can get permission to take them.

Please combine all parts of the report into one PDF or Word
file.
The report should be submitted via OnCourse.


The second part of t
h
is

project is a brief 10
-
minute presentation to the class that summarizes the
network. This presentation should
describe the network and tell us what is interesting
.


Network Design Project
.
The purpose of the
design project

is to provide the opportuni
ty for you
to design a simple network. You are to design a network for
Computer Dynamic
s

(

,
Mini
-
case
I
.
The list of equipment you can buy is in the Resources section of Oncourse.
Your
report should include a network diagram identifying all key
parts of the network (e.g., switches,
routers, cables, etc.), plus a spreadsheet listing the items you have decided to purchase and their
costs.
Please combine all of these into one PDF or Word file.

You should also provide a
brief

explanation of the netw
ork design. The project will be graded on both the quality and cost
effectiveness of the network.

The report should be submitted via OnCourse.


Team Peer Evaluations
.
Each member of the team will evaluate the performance of the other
members of his/her te
am.
You have 100 points x the number of people in your team to allocate.
If you
r

team has four members, you have a total of 400 points to allocate. More points means a
greater contribution.

The peer evaluation should be submitted via OnCourse.
