(a) Explain in detail ISO-OSI reference model. (b) Write short notes on interface, service and protocol. 2. (a) Draw, and explain about HDLC protocol. (b) Draw, and explain point-to-point protocol. [8+8] [8+8]

3. (a) Explain five key Assumptions in Dynamic channel allocation in LANs and MANs. (b) Explain the multiple access protocol using which the stations about their transmissions as soon as they detect a collision? [8+8] 4. (a) An ATM network uses a token bucket scheme for traffic shaping. A new token is put into the bucket every 5 µsec. What is the maximum sustainable net data rate (i.e., excluding header bits)? (b) A computer on a 6-Mbps network is regulated by a token bucket. The token bucket is filled at a rate of 1Mbps. It is initially filled to capacity with 8 megabits. How long can the computer transmit at the full 6 Mbps? (c) A data gram subnet allows routers to drop packets whenever they need to. The probability of a router discarding a packet is p. Consider the case of a source host connected to the source router, which is connected to the destination router, and then to the destination host. If either of the routers discards a packet, the source host eventually times out and tries again. If the host-router and router-router lines are counted as hops, what is the mean number of i. hops a packet makes per transmission? ii. transmissions a packet makes? iii. hops required per received packet? 5. (a) Briefly explain the concepts of Flow Control and Buffering. (b) Explain in detail Four protocol scenarios for releasing a connection. 6. (a) Briefly discuss about Concatenated Virtual Circuits. (b) Explain firewalls, packet filter and a proxy in detail. 7. (a) Briefly discuss TCP connection Management. 1 of 2 [8+8] [8+8]
