Module Description: Strategic and Tactical Network Design

Hours of Instruction: 64 hours
Module Length: 8 days (not including lab)
Required Textbooks:

Priscilla Oppenheimer, Top Down Network Design

This section is to allow the students to develop an understanding of how mission objectives and mission requirements generate network service and network design requirements, understand the need for network analysis and how network analysis contributes to the development of User Requirements Documents and network design and to understand the elements of structured network design process. Students will also study the logical design process for core, distribution, and access networks, and how logical network design processes contribute further to the development of User Requirements Documents.

Additional material covered consists of the importance of host and network address allocation and naming plans, how switching and routing requirements influence network design decisions, the influence of network security and network management strategies influence on network designs. The final units covered are the elements of the physical design process for access, distribution, and core networks, network services allocation and provisioning and the roles and impacts of the Defense Information System Network (DISN) and I3A requirements, Global Information Grid (GIG) initiatives, and legacy communication systems.

Module Objectives:

Students should be able to accomplish the following after attending this module:

  • Develop an understanding of how network mission objectives and requirements generate network service and design requirements.
  • Understand the need for network analysis and how it contributes to the development of network design and requirements documents.
  • The ability to describe the major steps of the structured network design process.
  • Understand the key elements of the logical design processes for core, distribution, and access networks, and how logical network design processes contribute to the development of User Requirements Documents.
  • Understand the value of systematic host and network address allocation and naming plans in network design processes.
  • Understand how switching and routing requirements influence network design decisions.
  • Understand network security requirements and network management strategies influence network designs.
  • Understand the elements of the physical design process for access, distribution, and core networks.
  • Understand how Request for Information (RFI) processes contribute to physical network design decisions.
  • The ability to apply logical and physical design concepts to a specific case example.
  • Understand how Defense Information System Network (DISN) and I3A requirements and Global Information Grid (GIG) initiatives affect network design processes and influence network design decisions.
  • Understand the importance of network testing and network documentation in the network design process.
