Students are required to produce a term project, building upon and complementing the material
covered in class. You will be working with other class members as part of a team. Teams will be
formed during the third class, in plenty of time for you to meet, plan, and work with other
members of your team. Some class time may be set aside for team meetings. Projects must
culminate with either a presentation for the class or the submission of a final report.
A set of suggested projects is included below. You may select one of the suggested projects
below, or you may devise your own comparable project. All projects must be approved by the
instructor. Teams must submit a well-organized proposal of one to three pages in length. The
proposal should clearly describe the project to be undertaken, including the topic to be covered,
any investigation, development, or experimentation to be conducted, the expected results, and the
final form of the project (i.e., presentation or report). Proposals will be reviewed and must be
approved by the instructor.

IMPORTANT DATES

Budget your time wisely for the team project. Plan a time-table for your project and take pains to
observe the deadlines.

INITIAL TEAM MEETINGS: Class #3


PROPOSALS DUE: Class #4
PROPOSALS RETURNED: Class #5
PROJECT PRESENTATIONS/REPORTS DUE: Class #10

PRESENTATION GUIDELINES

Plan to give a 30 minute over-head presentation, with time for questions and discussion.
Presentations should be self-contained, and should be clear and precise. Briefly introduce the
topic including any background information, describe the investigation, development, or
experimentation that was conducted, and provide any demonstrations developed as part of the
project, or describe the results of the investigation or experimentation. The following format is
suggested:

(1) Title. Name the project and all the team members.
(2) Outline. Summarize the full presentation.
(3) Introduction. Introduce the purpose and goals of the project. Provide any background
material necessary to understand the presentation.
(4) Investigation, development, or experimentation conducted. Describe the actual work
performed during the project.
(5) Results. Show any demonstrations developed or results achieved during the project.
(6) Conclusion.
(7) Questions and discussion.

REPORT GUIDELINES

Each term project will result in a detailed 10-20 page written technical report. The project report
should be neat, readable, and self-contained. Also, it should be written with the readers in mind.
Any class member should be able to understand your report, and benefit from the results you
obtain. Therefore, you should include adequate references and/or background materials and you
should use tables, diagrams, graphs, figures, and portions of printouts to enhance readers'
comprehension of your project.
The following format is suggested. You don't have to follow it exactly. Some sections may
not be needed, or additional sections may be necessary. In all cases, please type and paginate
your report!

(1) Abstract. It comes first in your report, but you write it last.
(2) Summary. Gives succinct information on the purpose, methods, results and conclusions
reported.
(3) Introduction. Include background material and discuss the scope and limitations of your
project.
(4) Discussion. The body of your report. This includes the methodology used. Be sure to fully
describe any figures, tables or diagrams you include.
(5) Results.
(6) Conclusions.
(7) Recommendations, especially for future work and unsolved problems.
(8) References (must always be included), annotated if possible.
(9) Appendices, including supporting material as needed.

Do not submit complete computer outputs. Relevant excerpts from program listings or output
should be included, but reduced to the size of the rest of the report and containing either as
figures or tables in the text or as an appendix.

GENERAL GUIDELINES

The format for written reports and copies of presentation slides is 8.5 x 11" white paper, stapled
in the upper left corner. NO plastic or cardboard or cellophane covers. NO binders. Submit two
copies of each report or set of presentation slides, one for grading and return, one for the
instructor to keep.
Grading of written reports and presentations will be based upon substantive content,
appropriate organization and use of allotted report size or presentation time, and effectiveness of
the presentation or report. Multiple errors in grammar and spelling are unprofessional and detract
from the clarity of your report or presentation and will be graded accordingly, so use a spell
checker!
NOTE: Plagiarism is stealing or passing off the ideas or words of another as one's own --
using material without crediting the source. This is prohibited behavior and will not be tolerated.

Network design proposal for airport


Project Description
The project is to design a proposal for setting up a network in an airport. The airport has three
departments.
1. Airport authority
2. Flight service providers
3. Guests.
The airport authority maintains a server which handles the flight management controls. The
flight service providers should have access only to the specific server in the airport authority
network and not to any other systems. The guest users should have wireless access to a high
speed internet connection, which should be shared among all the users in all the departments.
The wireless access should be using a common password. The guest users should not have access
to the other two departments. The users should obtain IP addresses automatically. The airport
authority has 20 users, the flight service providers have 40 users and the maximum numbers of
guests are estimated to be 100.
Networking Requirement.
1.The active networking components (Routers, switches, wireless access points etc) with
quantity.
2.The IP network design for each department.
3.Creating and mapping IP networks with vlans.
4.Analysis, identification and explanation of methodologies to use for access restriction and
internet sharing.
5.Dynamic IP addressing design for all the networks.
