They are moving to a larger building 3500 square feet. They are expanding and will add 15 more offices. They will add network printers and wireless network for employees and guest. They will need to share files between departments.
You will use the highlighted areas as indicators to help address the needs below. Take into consideration exactly what the project will need and what requirements each bit of information requests and add to the proposal. The proposal is similar to network plan for an organization. Try to approach it with the perspective of a company approaching you as a network professional to construct a design plan for their new network.
Design a network for this company to incorporate a network server, printer and wireless network. Provide a security solution for them. Security is addressed in Chapter 7&8
What type of topology? Topologies are addressed in Chapter 1&10
What type of cabling will need to be used? Cabling is addressed in Chapters 4&5 Wireless networks are addressed in Chapter 6
You will need to determine cabling, hardware and software needs. Based on the factors you select above you will determine what these needs are, this section is simply addressing how much, how many, and what kind of materials (cabling, hardware and software) you choose.
Include a timeline and cost analysis for the executives.
Here I would estimate a timeline, conducting research on network project timelines will help you develop a realistic timeline.
As far as cost analysis goes, I would use well branded equipment such as Cisco, Foundry, or Brocade. You will need to research their equipment options in order to determine the best product for your network plan, be able to defend your choices; executives should know why you chose one product over another. Additionally as far as cabling goes I would use well known sources for this as well such as black box.this is an example of the template I will be filling out wih the info providedSECTION I: Executive Summary for Proposal
