The purpose of the assessment is to test students on their ability to apply Routing theories and concepts.
This assessment relates to the unit learning outcomes as specified in the unit descriptor. This assessment is designed to evaluate student’s ability on planning, configuring and verifying the implementation of secure enterprise LAN and WAN network solutions using multiple routing protocols.
The following ULOs are assessed in this assessment.
LO1 Explain basic routing concepts and plan the configuration and verification of routing protocols and their optimization in enterprise networks
LO2 Analyse the technologies, components, and metrics used to implement and verify routing in diverse, large-scale internetworks based on enterprise requirements.
LO3 Critically evaluate various multi-area routing functions and benefits for routing efficiencies in network operations in order to implement and verify routing in a complex enterprise network.
LO4 Implement and verify a redistribution solution in a multi-protocol network with control path selection and loop-free topology according to a given network design meeting enterprise requirements.
LO5 Evaluate common network security and performance issues and identify the tools needed to control the path
These instructions apply to the Project:
Group Project (Weightage 20%) – The submissions should be uploaded on the LMS by Session 12
This Project will focus on student’s ability to implement an enterprise level network that runs multiple routing protocols. The project should be conducted as a group task by a group of 4 students. Upon the implementation of the network, students should produce a comprehensive report, which includes screenshots of configuration of routers and other nodes, and brief explanation of the screenshots. Students should implement the network based on the given scenario in a virtual environment using GNS3. Please make sure to name the devices with the group name.
If any third-party content is used, the citation of sources is mandatory and should follow IEEE style.
Remember that all your screenshots should include your student ID as the hostname of router (e.g. Melbourne3-S1234).
ABC Pty is an Airline company which owns the public IP range 126.96.36.199/24 and AS number 31400. They had recently acquired a start-up software development company named XYZ Pty Ltd. The ABC Pty Ltd and XYZ Pty Ltd have been respectively running OSPF and EIGRP as their Interior Gateway Protocols. In order to establish connectivity between two sites, the management decided to use route redistribution.
ABC Pty Ltd is connected to the internet through ISP1 with AS number 42000 using a BGP peering.
A simplified network topology is given below with the IP Allocations for each network.

Table 1: IP Address Plan
Device Name Interface IP Address
ISP Router S0/0 10.0.1.253/30
R1 S0/0 10.0.1.254/30
R2 Fa0/0 172.16.3.2/30

R4 S0/1 172.17.3.2/30
R5 Fa0/0 172.17.1.1/24
You are required to implement the given topology in GNS3 and configure the following tasks to produce this topology as a proof of concept to the management of ABC Pty Ltd.
Task 1: Configuring Interior Gateway Protocols
i. Configure OSPF with passive interfaces in ABC Pty Ltd network (exclude Loopback interfaces from being advertised in OSPF process)
ii. Configure EIGRP with passive interfaces in XYZ Pty Ltd network
Task 2: Re-distribute routes into Interior Gateway Protocols
i. Re-distribute routes in ABC Pty Ltd network into EIGRP routing process running in Router 1
ii. Re-distribute routes in XYZ Pty Ltd network into OSPF routing process running in Router 1
Task 3: Configure BGP in the network
i. Configure eBGP Peering between Router 1 and ISP router
ii. Configure iBGP Peering between Router 1 and Router 2
Task 4: Securing routing table with Filtering Ingress Routes
i. Configure Ingress Filtering on ISP router
What to Submit:
You need to submit a report which includes the screenshots of your configurations and verifications with descriptions for each screenshot along with the GNS3 file of your project on Moodle.
Please Note: All work should be submitted by the due date and time. Late submissions will be penalized at the rate of 10% per day including weekends.
Marking Guide: 100 Marks
Please note that this project will contribute towards 20% of the final grade.
