Prior to beginning this discussion, review the Segmenting the Network – CompTIA Network+ N10-006 – 2.4 (Links to an external site.) and Creating a Logical Network Design (Links to an external site.) videos.

Would you recommend dynamic addressing for your organization (office or your school)? In 250 words or more, explain why or why not. Provide an example of when static IP addressing might be more suitable. Explain if IP addressing is part of logical network design or physical network design. Support your statements with scholarly and/or credible sources. Please use the Scholarly, Peer Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources (Links to an external site.) table for assistance.

Your initial post should be a minimum of 250 words.

Interactive Assignment:

Prior to completing this interactive assignment, read Chapter 6 from the course text.

The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) (Links to an external site.) is a large open community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers that have interest in the evolution of the Internet architecture. For this discussion, you will select a project from the IETF website and analyze the problem and proposed solution. First, go to the Request for Comments (RFC) (Links to an external site.) page within the IETF website. Within this page, click on RFC Search Page (Links to an external site.). Once you are on the search page, use key words to locate projects that you are interested in. Here are some example keywords:

  • Local Area Network (or LAN)
  • Local Area Network upgrade (or LAN upgrade)
  • Virtual Local Area Network (or VLAN)
  • VLAN upgrade
  • VLAN addition
  • VLAN design

Review the selected project and include the following in your initial post:

  • Summarize the problem and the proposed solution.
  • Create a diagram of the network you explored (the way you see it before and after the recommendations) and attach it to your initial post. Use the instructions in the hands-on activity 6A to create your diagram.


Prior to completing this assignment, be sure that you have reviewed the following hands-on activities found in your text: 4A, 5A, 5B, 5D and 5E (from Chapters 4 and 5). These activities will assist you with your Data Transmission assignment this week.

Review the TCP/IP example (Figure 5-20) at the end of Chapter 5. Assume Bob is using client computer in Building B, as shown in the figure. Bob requests a web site,, that is rather large from a server situated in Building A. Assume that the client computer has just been powered on and, therefore, is unaware of any addresses (beside the ones in its own configuration table) and that the gateways and all web servers know the addresses to all of the network layers and data link layers.

For your paper,

  • Explain the types of messages that will be sent.
  • Evaluate the various models of data communication and describe how the messages will be transmitted through the network.
  • Describe how the messages will be transmitted through the network when the web server sends the requested page to the client.
  • Describe any changes in the transmission if the web page contains pictures and images, such as .gif or .jpg files.

The Data Transmission paper

  • Must be a minimum of two double-spaced pages in length (not including title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.).
  • Must include a separate title page with the following:
    • Title of paper
    • Student’s name
    • Course name and number
    • Instructor’s name
    • Date submitted
  • Must use at least one scholarly, peer-reviewed, credible source, in addition to the course text.
  • Must document all sources in APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
  • Must include a separate references page that is formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
