MCA-305(N)
M.C.A.(Third Semester) EXAMINATION,June,2008
(New Course)
COMPUTER NETWORKS
[MCA-305(N)]
Time : Three Hours
Maximum Marks : 100
Minimum Pass Marks :40

Note : Attempt all questions by attempting any two parts from each question. All questions
carry equal marks.

1.(a) Differentiate between the following :
(i) Frequency, Amplitude and Phase modulation.
(ii) Pube amplitude and Pulse code modulation and Differential pulse code modulation.
(iii) Time division, statistical time division and frequency division multiplexing.
(b) Measurements of a slotted ALOHA channel with an infinite number of users show that 10
percent of the slots are idle :
(i) What is the channel load G ?
(ii) What is the throughput ?
(c)(i) If a binary signal is sent over a 3 KHz channel whose signal-to-noise ration is 20 dB,
what is the maximum achievable data rate ?
(ii) Consider building a CSMA/CD network running at 1 Gbps over a 1 km cable with no
repeaters. THe signal speed in the cable is 200000 km/sec. What is the minimum frame
size ?
2.(a) (i) A system using two-dimensional even parity sends a block of 8 bytes. How many redundant
bits are sent per block ? What is the ration of useful bits of total bits ?
(ii) What is the remainder obtained by dividing x8 + x6 + x5 + 1 by the generator polynomial
x5 + x3 + 1 using modulo-2 arithmetic.
(b) What do you mean by protocol correctness ? Construct a finite state diagram for a full duplex
channel that never loses frames.
(c) Write the complete procedure of GO-Back-N protocol. How does it differ from the selective-
repeat ?
3.(a) A 4-Mbps token ring has token-holding timer value of 10 m sec. What is the longest frame that
can be sent on this ring ? Does the use of a wire centre have any influence on the performance
of a token ring ?
(b) Explain the working of FDDI protocol. A large FDDI ring has 100 stations and a token rotation
time of 40 m sec. The token holding times is 10 m sec. What is the maximum achievable
efficiency of the ring ?
(c) Differentiate between the following :
(i) Hubs, switches and routers
(ii) Transparent and source routing bridge
(iii) Repeaters and gateways

4.(a) Consider the subnet of the following network :

Distance vector routing is used and the following vectors have just come into router C: from
B(5,0,8,12,6,2) : from D: (16,12,6,0,9,10) and from E : (7,6,3,9,0,4). The measured delays to
B,D and E are 6,3 and 5 respectively. What is C's new routing table ? Give both the outgoing
line to use and the expected delay.
(b) What do you mean by congestion in computer networks ? What are the various methods to control
it ? Give an argument why the leaky bucket algorithm should allow just one packet per tick,
independent of how large the packet is.
(i) Convert the IP address whose hexadecimal representation is C 22 F1 582 to dotted decimal
notation.
(ii) Differentiate between the following :
(1) TCP and UDP

5.(a) Compare Cipher block chaining with Cipher feedback mode in terms of the number of encryption
operations needed to transmit a large file. Which one is more efficient and by how much ?
(b) Using the RSA public key cryptosystem with a = 1,b = 2 etc........
(i) if p = 7 and q = 11, list five legal values for d.
(ii) Using p = 5, q=11 and d = 27, find e and encrypt 'abcdef'
(c) Write brief notes on the following :
(i) SNMP
(ii) Virtual terminal protocol
(iii) e-mail
