Produce a proposal for this project by covering items below:
• Prepare and illustrate the appropriate topology diagram based on the addressing table given.
• Prepare and apply the basic configurations on one of the switches. • Prepare and apply the appropriate configurations for the VLANs creation and VLANs assignment at the appropriate switch ports.
• Prepare and apply the appropriate 802.1Q Trunk configurations between the switches.
Prove that your configuration is working using Packet Tracer. You are required to submit ONE report and ONE Packet Tracer file of your work
When a computer needs to communicate with another network-attached device, it sends an address resolution protocol (ARP) broadcast. This assumes the IP address, for example, of both devices possesses the same network identifier. For example, if the target device and the source device both have the network address 192.168.10.0/24, the source device safely assumes the target device is on the same network or network segment. The broadcast packet travels to all devices on the same network segment asking for a response from the device with the target IP address.
An 802.1D (D-switch) receives a broadcast packet and sends it out all ports except the one on which it is received. See Figure 5-5. The first issue is packet delivery to all devices. This unnecessarily increases network traffic and degrades performance. The second issue is visibility. The desktop device in our example can find any connected device simply by sending one or more ARP broadcasts. A D-switch enables maximum visibility because it cannot determine whether a requesting device is authorized to see or contact the target device. Further, all devices exist on the same network segment.
