Industrial Visit to NETWORK BULLS
31st August, 2017
ISTE Student Chapter, Dronacharya College of Engineering, Gurgaon organized an industrial visit to “NETWORK BULLS, Gurgaon” on 31st August 2017, Mrs. Poonam Yadav (Assistant Professor, IT Dept.) along with 44 students from IT, CSIT, ECS, CSE, ECE Departments of DCE, Gurgaon visitedthe company.
The main aim of the visit was to provide the students a brief understanding of Networking Fundamentals and Equipment.
Network Bulls founded in 2009 is a leading Cisco organization based in India introduces Asia’s biggest Cisco labs.
DCE team was welcomed by Mr. Pramod Singh, Network Specialist. Then, Mr. Baljot Singh (Training Specialist) gave the overview of company introduction to Computer Networks. He also explained the three basic aspects of engineering student i.e.,“What, Why and How”. He gave the tips for the HR round in the placement. He stated Network as set of devices (often referred to as nodes) connected by communication links. A node can be a computer, printer, or any other device capable of sending and/or receiving data generated by other nodes on the network. He explained the type of a network with an example. Types of networks are LAN, WAN MAN. Mr. Singh also discussed MAC address IP address and ended his lecture session by briefing OSI reference model device used in each layer.
During the lab session, students along with Mr. Singh visited CISCO lab, in which he discussed straight cross cable wire, when it is used and how it is connected to hub, switch router. Mr. Singh also discussed difference between switch hub. Hub is used in star topology. When hub receives a packet every time it simply broadcasts the packet to all terminal. While switch is an intelligent device, when switch receives a packet first time it broadcast the packet, then switch store its MAC address in a table. Next time when packet is arrived for same destination then it directly send to particular node. In the end, Mr. Singh explained PuTTY software. He said PuTTY is an SSH and telnet client, developed originally by Simon Tatham for the Windows platform. PuTTY is open source software that is available with source code.
It was very educative experience for the students as they learnt basic of Computer Networks, IP addressing, OSI reference model type of Network. The visit gave an opportunity to the students to have a closer look at various networking devices.
