This unit aims towards developing a sophisticated understanding of the process of designing computer and communication networks. This will be achieved through bridging the gap between theoretical and practical aspects and learning the step-by-step procedures of network analysis, architecture, and design. Students will learn about the fundamental relationships between major building blocks required in a successfully architected network and be able to make competent evaluations of existing network structures. Case studies will include national networks (e.g., NBN) and enterprise networks (e.g., campus). Guest lectures and group projects with hands-on laboratories will be used for enhancing student-learning experience.
This unit is co-taught with Network Architecture, 9428.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Analyse, assimilate and then disseminate knowledge, ideas and opinions effectively and professionally;

2. Competently identify, analyse and formulate/synthesize the requirements for an detailed network design;

3. Demonstrate a high level of conceptual understanding to enable the evaluation of a network architectural design and formulate a range of components that best meet the requirements;

4. Ability to plan and execute the process of architecting a networking system and use interpersonal skills to work collaboratively; and

5. Create a broad design of network systems for specific real life deployment scenarios.
