...April 4th 2011 ACME Network Design Anthony G, Buddy W, Anthony P, & Ryan O University of Phoenix Mike Kanfer Introduction As a network consultant hired by Acme Manufacturing, the company has asked Team A to develop a new networking design for Acme’s expanding business. The description below describes the key steps involved in developing a WAN for Acme Manufacturing. The company has six different buildings in six different locations throughout the world that needs to be networked collectively.   All the remote locations need to communicate effectively with the main headquarters that is in Atlanta, Georgia. The two buildings that house the headquarters are located across from each other. One building is used solely for corporate operations whereas the other building is for staffing the sales and engineering department. PBX vs VOIP PBX (Private Branch Exchange) is a system that has been around for a while. This allows users to communicate to other users in an office, even without an outside line connected. In a normal environment, the user would have to dial a specific number (or code) to access an outside line. In this way an end user could dial a number that would stay internally. A PBX also allows the users to share the lines that are accessible to the company. If a customer were to call the company on the main line, the receptionist could transfer that call to the salesperson. PBX systems also allow for many other features such as: Voice mail, Caller ID,......

...Network Design Project Cecil Ruis NTC/362 August 6, 2013 Ron Inmon Kudler Fine Foods (KFF) is a small specialized company that deals in fine foods, wines and other related items for the discerning customer. Presently the company uses a dedicated T3 line to connect their La Jolla, Del Mar and Encinitas stores together with La Jolla being the site for the central server. The company incorporates a Bus Topology for a three locations. Bus networks use a common backbone to connect all devices. This is done with a single cable (backbone) that functions as a common communication link that all devices either tap into or attach to individually. Below is an example of a Bus Topology. Ethernet bus topology is considered the easiest to install and maintain because of its simplicity. Kudler uses a 100Base ThickNet cable for its backbone. The Bus Topology is very effective when connecting fewer than 15 components at a time. This is an ideal set-up for the company because all three locations have less than 15 connections per site. Each location has the same configurations which consist of six computers, one Point of Sales (POS) server, POS terminals, blade server (for all communications, e-mail, storage and Web), one printer, six Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) phones and an APC Smart Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS). The biggest downside to this system is that if anything happens to the backbone cable the entire system goes down. The plan for Kudler is to incorporate a...

...Harriet's Fruit and Chocolate Question 1: What investigation will you do with regard to the physical infrastructure of the orchards, orchard shacks, and the cold storage building? An investigation of the physical infrastructure should reveal many important aspects to aid in the planning of the network design. The number of buildings should be determined, the distance between them and what equipment they contain such as wiring closets or computer rooms and the current network devices. Determining the distance will aid in the cabling design and wiring as well as the selection of technologies and devices to meet the design goals. Investigation should further reveal any architectural or environmental constraints that will assist in decisions such as whether wireless technologies are feasible as well as if there any impediments to communications or installation, to include any hazards. Question 2: Make a list of business goals for Harriet’s Fruit and Chocolate Company. What are some constraints that will affect these goals? Business goals for Harriet’s Fruit and Chocolate Company are immediate reporting of ripening fruit, to provide high quality products to customers, to provide immediate, real-time access to inventory data to aid in sales and reporting, modernize outdated technologies, and enable online commerce.

Whether its data transfer rules that determine the number of channels needed and the priorities to be used. An alternate real issue is the most extreme size of data that can be sent and received leads to the need for segmentation at the sending end and reassembly at the receiving end. Networking design must reflect the objectives, attributes, and approaches of the associations in which they work. A decently planned network can help adjust these targets. At the point when legitimately executed, the network base can improve application accessibility and permit the savvy utilization of existing network assets. The primary step is to comprehend your networking necessities. (Cisco Systems, Inc.) There are two essential objectives when setting up a networking design and having the capacity to execute the design into a live environment. The principal objective is to have application accessibility. The system conveys application information between machines. On the off chance that the applications are not accessible to system clients, the system is not doing its occupying. Which can make trouble managing getting to applications over the system. The second of the essential objectives is the Cost of possession. The Information system (IS)......

...Computer Dynamics is a microcomputer software development company that has a 300-computer network. The company is located in three adjacent five-story buildings in an office park, with about 100 computers in each building. Each building is approximately 90 feet long by 50 feet wide. They are set about 100 feet apart. The current network is poorly design for its current needs and must be completely replaced. Describe the network you would recommend and how it would be configured with the goal of building a new network that will support the company’s needs for the next 3 years with few additional investments. Figure 11.16 provides a list of equipment and costs you can use to build your network. You will need to make some assumptions, so be sure to document your assumptions and explain why you have designed the network in this way. We need 5 switches has 24 ports each in each floor to create the access layer of the network and also we need 100 Cat 5 cables in each floor to connect the computer to the switches. All the switches in the four floors are connected to core layer 3 switch using fiber optic cable to handle this huge number of connection. creating Vlans on each access layer switches to give privileges to each group of users can reduce the process in the core switches. then we can create a link between the core switch and the router. The router have T3 wan interface and connection with ISP pop to provide 44.370 Mbps can be pretty good for 300 users activities....

This design includes the infrastructure for the corporate headquarters located in San Francisco, as well as the other design centers in Detroit, Paris, Tokyo, and Sao Paulo. We then follow up by explaining the infrastructure of the sales offices, which may not require as high grade of equipment as the design centers depending on its requirements. Finishing with the overview of the entire wide area network, connecting each site to the corporate headquarters which is where we will begin our design. The corporate office being the main headquarters will include many services such as file, print, email, directory, and application. These services will be separated onto at least two different servers due to the constant strain we may see from directory and email services. If necessary we will implement an application server as well to run any in-house programs the company may be familiar with. We also suggest the use of a database server dedicated to storing and providing access to its information throughout the network, which would also need to maintain a backup located nearby or......

...College Prepared by: Student Name I. Physical Network Design Network Topology Business Needs UOE is an institution that it is growing globally and diversifies its spears of academic excellence and markets itself. For the institution to achieve its goals and mission, use of computer systems and internet facilities installation should be prioritized. Today the world has become a global village and thus the need to put the infrastructure in place is essential. The institution looked at the need and considered it to be the priority. The organizations’ network has different users each with different privileges. The users are the administration, the staff and the students. My aim is to come up with an efficient, modular, resilient, structured and manageable network upon implementation with good structural and engineering principles. To meet the requirements of the organization, I propose a hierarchical network design needs to be implemented. This is because this design allows the use of the other topologies at different levels, growth and robustness. Hierarchical network design A hierarchical network is also called network backbone. The hierarchical system is divided into three tiers, namely core, distribution and access level, with the privileges reducing downwards. This design is most appropriate for the organization since it allows for network administrators to optimize and specify the correct hardware and software for the entire network that is changing from one level to......

...Network Design Proposal Prepared for: University of Maryland University College Prepared by: Tim Black I. Physical Network Design A. Network Topology Business Needs In this section, you will assess the business needs of the company. Use the information provided in the scenario to analyze the need for infrastructure or equipment. If you need more information, feel free to ask your instructor or make some assumptions. If you make some assumptions, be sure to list them. This section is not about the actual infrastructure or equipment, but it should discuss the business needs of the company. Example ABS Enterprises believes that employees’ health, well-being, and morale have a significant impact on the productivity of the employees and thus the overall results or output of the company. They want to invest in a facility that will provide the most return on investment while still providing a facility that employees will use. Proposed Topology Select one or more topologies to use for this design. This section should be used to provide details of the selected infrastructure or equipment. Include the model, manufacturer, features, and cost. Example We are proposing the construction of a basketball court at our campus. This can be constructed behind our main building where the current overflow parking lot is located. The court will be a full regulation-size basketball court [1]. The typical measurements of a regulation-size basketball court are as follows: ...

...Network Design Project Intruction Kudler Fine Foods is making steps to inhanse the existing network, including wireless technology. These changes are being provided to improve the comuunication links between the stores and all employees. We will be implementing new technologies to automate inventory managment by creating orders of products from the transactions at the POS. The VOIP phones will be repalced with wireless VOIP phones and will allow for the employees to take calls as they provide servieces for their costumers. The improvements in network security will provide real time monitoring. Timeline The redesign of the Kudler Fine Foods will be an extreme undertaking. We will need three months to fully reconfigure the network. Since each store will have to have new cable and equipment run throughout, the downtime for each location will be minimul. In the network closet the new router will be installed, along with the two new switches. The Cat 6 Ethernet has to be run from this closet to each access point. The two servers will need to be backed up and the data will be uploaded to the new servers. A wireless access point will be added to the network and the printers and VOIP phones will be configured. While the store is closed, all the user devices will be connected to the new ports and the network will be connected to the inetnet.

...Network Design Your name Your class Your teacher Date Network Design In business the main key to success is communication with others and to do ones job effectively. Up until around 1990 this communication would have been conducted through postal service or telephone services that offered only voice or fax. Today however thanks to the advancements in technology companies can use networks to communicate more timely. Network design is the process of planning and deploying a computer network for a company. A Computer Network defined in its simplest form is “a network consists of two or more connected computers” (Laudon & Laudon, 2009). Networks are a requirement for companies to succeed in business through the interlacing of the corporate network infrastructure. When one is designing a network for use by a company they must consider what that company is trying to achieve. To what extent do communication capabilities need to be utilized. It must be determined whether it is just voice communication or email and voice communication or data communication. Furthermore, does the local network need access to a larger network such as the internet? Is there a need for an intranet? There are many options that must be analyzed for a firm to manage their business in the most effective manner without exceeding their needs. For example, if the needs are exceeded the cost of running the network may outweigh the benefits of the networks capabilities. This is the...
