Provide a detailed network design proposal. Your task is to design the network for this new building with the following criteria:
• Each Classroom Computer Lab will be on a separate network (i.e., subnet). The Library Computer Lab will be on a separate network, and the Office / Admissions computers will also be on a separate network. Finally, the open-WiFi network should be on a separate network, but can use a private IP address range (i.e., 192.168.0.0).
• There must be a minimum of 40 Mbps Internet connection, with a backup line capable of at least 20 Mbps. Cable, DSL, or FIOS should not be used for primary Internet service.
• The network has been assigned the 18.104.22.168/24 network address for all computers and devices.
Your proposal will be submitted in three major parts:
Physical Network Design. Network Topology Business Needs The goal of effectively building a new network starts with the physical structure and foreseeing possible problems later on, which means that starting with the best topology that is easy to troubleshoot and reconfigure. Proposed Topology Klub Corporate is proposing to implement a star topology in the network design. Aster topology will connect all devices, within that room, to one location. Data traffic will be minimized greatly because messages are sent straight to the destination device. Justification Implementing a star topology in all rooms allows the network administrator to troubleshoot and reconfigure with ease. If a cable breaks or malfunctions, only that single device attached to it will be affected. Thus, enabling the students and staff to continue using the lab or other devices in the room without having to shut the whole classroom down to troubleshoot. This can save a great deal of time for the University. Network Media Business Needs The staff and students at UMUC deserve the most efficient and most secure media available. Their security is top priority to protect all student and staff data and information against hackers and the growing cyber security threats that are rising every day. High speed and low traffic are also essential for college students to continue their work without downtime. Proposed Network Mediate propose to implement Fiber Optic cabling throughout the building to replace the older, lower speed and less secure cables installed. Using fiber optic cables will allow for high-speed applications, which result in a minimal possible signal loss. Fiber optic cables are also highly resistant to eavesdropping, which improves the security of your data. We will be using single mode fiber optic cables to route the network from the demark to the IDF in the server room on the second floor. Then we will route it from the server room to each closet in the classroom and to a wall jack in each office or room. The fiber optic cable will support 100 Mbps and up to 412 meters in length.
Justification .The security of data and information is Klub Corporate first priority, which is why fiber optic cables are our first choice. The advantages are: it is completely immune to EMI, resistant from eavesdropping (improving security), it supports high data transmission rates, and it allows greater cable distances without using a repeater. Network Devices Business Needs Students and staff will have enough computers to use while in class, at the library, in the computer lab, or in the admissions office. They will use the most current and up to date technology so they we can provide them w...
