1 - Data Communication and Networks (Optional) INTRODUCTION This is one of the optional courses designed for Semester 4 of the Bachelor of Information Technology Degree program. This course on Data Communication and Networks provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts on data communication and the design, deployment, and management of computer networks. CREDITS: 04 LEARNING OUTCOMES After successful completion of this course students will be able to Identify the different components and their respective roles in a communication system Propose efficient, cost effective, reliable and appropriate technology to establish communication links Design an enterprise network employing the common LAN technologies and be able to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages Configure a PC to work as a host in a TCP/IP network and to use the IP based commands to facilitate the trouble shooting process Describe the technical issues related to the Wide Area Networks and identify the common technologies available in establishing WAN infrastructure Describe the specific actions that can be taken to enforce network level security. MINOR MODIFICATIONS When minor modifications are made to this syllabus, those will be reflected in the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and the latest version can be downloaded from the relevant course page of VLE. Please inform your suggestions and comments through the VLE. ONLINE LEARNING MATERIALS AND ACTIVITIES You can access all learning materials and this syllabus in the VLE: if you are a registered student of BIT degree program. It is very important to participate in learning activities given in the VLE to learn this subject. 1 of 8 pages

2 ONLINE ASSIGNMENTS The assignments consist of two quizzes, assignment quiz 1 (It covers the first half of the syllabus) and assignment quiz 2 (It covers the second half of the syllabus). Maximum mark for a question is 10, minimum mark for a question is 0 (irrespective of negative scores). Final assignment mark is calculated considering 40% of assignment quiz 1 and 60% of assignment quiz 2. Pass mark for the online assignments in a course is 50. You are advised to do online assignments before the final exam of the course. It is compulsory to pass all online assignments to partially qualify to obtain year 2 certificate. FINAL EXAMINATION Final exam of the course will be held at the end of the semester. Each course in the semester 4 is evaluated using a two hour question paper.
