One of the important aspects that Information technology has brought forward is telecommunications. Communication networks play an increasing important role in an ever shrinking business world. Organizations, big or small, used these networks to exchange information even beyond geographical boundaries. Through research, new communication standards are developed on regular basis which when employed, not only enhance organizations capacity to communicate. This phenomenon, not only highlight the strong need of data communication and networks in business environment, but it also highlight the importance of learning about these technologies, so that they can be employed in an efficient ways to meet business demands. Through my experiences at DBR Technologies, I have also been able to learn a lot about current data communications technologies, networking standards and the equipment that is used to implement them.
My work at DBR Technology involved experiences in Network Administration as well as System administration. This involved me to have an excellent background in Data Communication and Networks. To enhance my knowledge of Data Communication and Networks, I used the book called Computer Networks by V.S.Bagad and I.A. Dhotre which played a significant role in building my concepts of OSI Physical and Data Link Level Technologies such as Ethernet and 802.11 Standard as well as higher level protocol which are included in the TCP/IP Suite. I also learned about different LAN and WAN Hierarchies such as Bus Topology, Star Topology and Mashed Networks. This information was quite useful for me when I was tasked to design and implement a TCP/IP LAN Network to provide services like files and printer sharing as well as setting up VOIP services and Web Servers.
Most of the LAN Network was Wireless enabled and used 802.11g standard for communicating , however CAT5e cables were also used to provide connectivity to some computers with 100Mbps Ethernet link through a managed Switch.
