Question No: 54      ( Marks: 3 )


What is the difference between a unicast, multicast, and broadcast address? [3]
Three methods can be used to transmit packets over a network: unicast, multicast, and broadcast.
Unicast involves communication between a single sender and a single receiver. This is a type of point-to-point transmission; since the packet is transmitted to one destination at a time.
Multicast is used to send packets to a group of addresses, represented by a "group address." In this case, packets are transmitted from a single sender to multiple receivers. Since the same data packet can be sent to multiple nodes by sending just one copy of the data, the load of the sender and the overall load of the network are both reduced.
Broadcast involves sending packets to all nodes on a network simultaneously. This type of transmission is used to establish communication with another host, and for DHCP type methods of assigning IP addresses.

2.       Coaxial cable
3.       Fiber-optic Cable


Question No: 57      ( Marks: 5 )


Why do we need Inverse Multiplexing? [5]
Data & Video can be broken into smaller portions using Inverse Multiplexing and TX. An inverse multiplexer (often abbreviated to "inverse mux" or "imux") allows a data stream to be broken into multiple lower data rate communication links. An inverse multiplexer differs from a demultiplexer in that each of the low rate links coming from it is related to the others and they all work together to carry their respective parts of the same higher rate data stream. By contrast, the output streams from a demultiplexer may be completely independent from each other and the demultiplexer does not have to understand them in any way.
This is the opposite of a multiplexer which creates one high speed link from multiple low speed ones.
It can lease a 1.544 Mbps line from a common carrier and only use it fully for
sometime
Or it can lease several separate channels of lower data rates
Voice can be sent over any of these channels


Question No: 58      ( Marks: 5 )


Describe method of checksum briefly?
The sender subdivides data units into equal segments of ‘n’ bits(16 bits).These segments are added together using one’s complement. The total (sum) is then complemented and appended to the end of the original data unit as redundancy bits called CHECKSUM. The extended data unit is transmitted across the network. The receiver subdivides data unit as above and adds all segments together and complement the result. If the intended data unit is intact, total value found by adding the data segments and the checksum field should be zero. If the result is not zero, the packet contains an error & the receiver rejects it


Question No: 59      ( Marks: 10 )


Explain Asynchronous Time Division Multiplexing in detail? Also discuss its advantages over synchronous TDM?
Asynchronous time-division multiplexing (ATDM) is a method of sending information that resembles normal TDM, except that time slots are allocated as needed dynamically rather than preassigned to specific transmitters. ATDM is more intelligent and has better bandwidth efficiency than TDM.

Time-division multiplexing (TDM) is a type of digital or (rarely) analog multiplexing in which two or more signals or bit streams are transferred apparently simultaneously as sub-channels in one communication channel, but are physically taking turns on the channel. The time domain is divided into several recurrent timeslots of fixed length, one for each sub-channel. A sample byte or data block of sub-channel 1 is transmitted during timeslot 1, sub-channel 2 during timeslot 2, etc. One TDM frame consists of one timeslot per sub-channel. After the last sub-channel the cycle starts all over again with a new frame, starting with the second sample, byte or data block from sub-channel 1, etc.

asynchronous time-division multiplexing comprising receive circuits (CRl/i) supplying cells received via input links, transmit circuits (CTl/j) transmitting retransmitted cells on output links, a buffer memory (MT) storing the received cells and delivering the cells to be retransmitted and a buffer memory addressing device (SMT) including a write address source (SAE) and a read address source (fsl/j).
The switching unit further comprises a write disabling circuit (pi) conditioned by a signal (adl) derived from the content of at least one received cell or a signal (tle) derived from the absence of any received cell and supplying a disabling signal (spi) and the address source includes a disabling device (pac, pal) influenced by the disabling signal (spi) so that no memory location is then occupied in the buffer memory (MT).

Advantages asynchronous TDM:

In asynchronous TDM, the timeslots are not fixed. They are assigned dynamically as needed.
In order to reduce the communications costs in time-sharing systems and multicomputer communication systems, multiplexing techniques have been introduced to increase channel utilization. A commonly used technique is Synchronous Time Division Multiplexing (STDM). In Synchronous Time Division Multiplexing, for example, consider the transmission of messages from terminals to computer, each terminal is assigned a fixed time duration. After one user's time duration has elapsed, the channel is switched to another user. With synchronous operation, buffering is limited to one character per user line, and addressing is usually not required. The STDM technique, however, has certain disadvantages. As shown in Figure 1, it is inefficient in capacity and cost to permanently assign a segment of bandwidth that is utilized only for a portion of the time. A more flexible system that efficiently uses the transmission facility on an "instantaneous time-shared" basis could be used instead. The objective would be to swiwww.allvupastpapers.blogspot.com  
tch from one user to another user whenever the one user is idle, and to asynchronously time multiplex the data. With such an arrangement, each user would be granted access to the channel only when he has a message to transmit. This is known as an Asynchronous Time Division Multiplexing System (ATDM). A segment of a typical ATDM data stream is shown in Figure 2. The crucial attributes of such a multiplexing technique are:
1. An address is required for each transmitted message, and
2. Buffering is required to handle the random message arrivals.
