Network design proposal

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:
Area Measurements
Court length 94 ft
Court width 50 ft
Rim height 10 ft
Restricted arc radius 4 ft
Center circle diameter 12 ft
3-point line distance from the basket 23.75 ft
Key (shaded lane or restricted area) width 16 ft
Free-throw line distance from point on the floor directly below the backboard 15 ft

The court will cost approximately $20,000 and will include such features as the company logo, a state-of-the-art lighting system, and a net structure around the court.
Justification
Justify your determination that the selected topologies will meet the business needs. Use the information provided in the scenario to make the appropriate assumptions (make sure to list those assumptions). Be sure to also provide an analysis of the justification for the infrastructure or equipment.
Example
Last month, the Human Resources department conducted a survey asking all current employees which facility they would be more likely to use: basketball court, volleyball court, or tennis court. Based on the survey, 70% of our employees selected basketball, 40% selected a tennis court, and 20% percent chose volleyball court.

B. Network Media
Business Needs
Assess the business needs.

Proposed Network Media (include network wiring diagrams)
Select one or more network media to use for this design.

Justification
Justify your determination that the selected media will meet the business needs.

C. Network Devices
Business Needs
Assess the business needs.

Proposed Network Devices
Select network devices to use to implement the design. Include setup and location information for the devices. Provide a comprehensive list of devices including the quantity of each device needed.

Justification
Justify your determination that the selected network devices will meet the business needs.

D. Network Security Devices
Business Needs
Assess the business needs.

Proposed Network Security Devices
Select network security devices to use to secure the network. Include setup and location information for the devices. Provide comprehensive list of devices including the quantity of each device needed.

Justification
Justify your determination that the selected network security devices will meet the business needs.
E. Computer Systems
Business Needs
Assess the business needs.

Proposed Computer Systems
Select computer systems (servers) to use to implement the network design. Include setup and location information for the devices. Provide comprehensive list of devices including the quantity of each system needed.

Justification
Justify your determination that the selected systems will meet the business needs.

II. Network Addresses Design
A. Subnetting
Business Needs
Assess the business needs.

Proposed Subnetting (include the calculations)
List the quantity of subnets needed. For each subnet, provide the IP addressing info (network address, broadcast address, range of available IP addresses) and the systems, devices, or equipment that will be on that network. Also provide the calculations on how those IP addressing information are determined.

Justification
Justify your determination that the network address design will meet the business needs(why the design needs to have x number of subnets? What are the implications if they have more or less subnets?)
III. Network Services Design
A. Network Services
Business Needs
Assess the business needs

Proposed Network Services
Determine and list the network services needed to implement the design. Provide setup and licensing information (as necessary).

Justification
Justify your determination that the network services are needed and will meet the business needs

B. Network Security Measures
Business Needs
Assess the business needs

Proposed Network Security Measures
Outline network security measures needed in the design. This includes training, monitoring, and maintenance procedures. Provide implementation details of these measures.

Justification
Justify your determination that the network security measures are needed and will meet the business needs.
