Describe how you would determine which model to use.DQ 2Describe the layers of the OSI model and discuss how functions at each layer impact how you use the network.CIT 245 Week 2 Individual Assignment Observing the TCP Three-Way Handshake 
Toolwire® Lab
Resource: Toolwire®Complete the Observing the TCP Three-Way Handshake lab in Toolwire®.Write a summary in one page of the skills performed in the lab and what you learned.CIT 245 Week 2 Learning Team OSI Model PaperWrite a 3- to 5-page paper describing the OSI model.Include the following components in the paper:Purpose and benefits of the OSI model
Comparison and contrast of the OSI model to the TCP/IP model
Function of each OSI layer
Protocols that work at each OSI layerCIT 245 Week 2 DQSDQ 1Explain how data packets flow through an Ethernet LAN, and discuss the concept of shared media. Be specific, use examples, and as always find good resources that support your comments and add value to the class.DQ 2Describe the devices that work at the lower layers of the OSI model and their functions, and explain how you would use this information.
What does lower layers refer to? Why are we separating them? Be specific and use examples, and as always, find good resources to support your comments and add value to the class.CIT 245 Week 3 Individual Assignment  Observing Extended PC Network Information 
Toolwire® LabResource: Toolwire®Complete the Observing Extended PC Network Information lab in Toolwire®.Write a summary of the skills performed in the lab and what you learned.CIT 245 Week 3 Learning Team Assignment LAN Design PaperWrite a 3- to 5-page paper and a 1-page network diagram discussing components needed to build a simple office network based on the following office scenario.15 employees
1 network printer
Connection to the WAN/InternetInclude reasons for choosing specific components and a diagram of your proposed network.CIT 245 Week 3 DQSDQ 1List the issues that might cause increased traffic on an Ethernet LAN and the use of layer 2 switches.
Be specific, use examples and provide resources.DQ 2List and describe features and functions of Cisco IOS Software. Remember this should not be a list – but a conversation – discussion.
So post the list but along with it give specific examples and describe situation where you would use it and why. And as always, resources.CIT 245 Week 4 Individual Assignment  Performing Switch Startup and Initial ConfigurationToolwire® LabResource: Toolwire®Complete the Performing Switch Startup and Initial Configuration lab in Toolwire®.Write a summary of the skills performed in the lab and what you learned.CIT 245 Week 4 Learning Team Assignment Layer 2 Domains PaperWrite a 3- to 5-page paper and a 1-page network diagram discussing the components and behaviors of devices needed to build a simple Layer-2 office network based on the following office scenario.45 employees
2 network printers
1 connection to the WAN/Internet
Separate LANs within the officeIdentify the different Collision and Broadcast Domains on your network diagramCIT 245 Week 4 Individual Enhancing the Security of Initial Switch Configuration Toolwire® LabResource: Toolwire®Complete the Enhancing the Security of Initial Switch Configuration lab in Toolwire®.Write a summary of the skills performed in the lab and what you learned.CIT 245 Week 4 DQSDQ 1Describe the functions that enable a switch to learn and then forward Ethernet frames? Please explain those functions and describe why they are important to understand.
Be specific, use examples, and of course provide references to your resources.DQ 2Discuss what you found most interesting about switching that is different from routing. Provide some examples of syntax that is peculiar to switches. If you like, you can bring in the aspects of multi layer switches. Remember that for our purposes in class, however, and for most purposes in the CCNA exam, switches are layer 2 devices. I am leaving this topic rather open ended to see where you take it. But be sure to be specific, use examples and provide references for your resources.CIT 245 Week 5 Learning Team Assignment  Office WIFI PaperWrite a 3- to 5-page paper about the benefits and the issues involved with installing and deploying a wireless network within an office or small business.CIT 245 Week 5 Individual Operating and Configuring a Cisco IOS Device  Toolwire® LabResource: Toolwire®Complete Operating and Configuring a Cisco IOS Device lab in Toolwire®.Write a summary of the skills performed in the lab and what you learned.
.CIT 245 Week 5 DQSDQ 1
Identify the additional devices necessary to run VoIP on your LAN. Be specific, use examples, and provide references.DQ 2Discuss the security concerns surrounding the use of wireless technologies in the home or office. Use specific examples. Try to talk more about in a corporate setting than at home – although some references to home networking is ok. Think more about a business adding wireless to connect to their secure LAN, and when someone is traveling or meeting another person at a coffee shop for a business meeting as well.  And as always, provide sources that support your statements and references for others to use for further research.
