itgurukitty :

Customer :

this is homework

Customer :

it is kind of hard to read with the copy and paste format. can I email it to you?

Customer :

the paper also mentions:

Customer :

Two server rooms have been allocated, one on the first floor and one on the second floor.


 


Your task is to design the network for this new building with the following criteria:



  • Student-accessed computers should be on separate network from the staff-accessed computers. There should be at least 3 separate networks: Administrative, Instructional, and Public. All staff-accessed computers will be on the Administrative network. The computers in the instructional computer labs and classrooms that will be used for classes should be on the Instructional network. The wifi and the computers in the student lobby should be in the Public network.

  • The whole building will share one Internet access connection (T-1 link from Verizon). This connection will come into the Server Room on the first floor. The Public IP address for the router here is 191.1.15.1

  • Security is very important for UMUC as we have to protect students and employees data as well as any intellectual property that UMUC has on the servers and computers.

  • The network has been assigned the 10.15.0.0 network address for all computers and devices.

  • The network should use physical cable (not wireless), but do provide wireless access in the Student Lobby area.



Submission should include (in no more than three pages, excluding diagrams and references): Network Addressing:


1. Define the subnet (based on: rooms, floor, department, or other criteria).


2. For each subnet, explain which devices/groups/users/rooms will be on this subnet, define the network address, subnet mask, and available IP addresses to be used by computers or devices.


 


Physical Network Design:


1. Define the topology that will be used.


2. Select the appropriate network media to use.


3. Select the appropriate network connecting devices to use.


4. Physical layout of the computers on the floor plan.


5. List of additional servers or network devices needed to implement the network.


6. Justifications for your network design (number 1 – 5 above)

This doesn't really help me. I'm just going to do it in my own.

Expert:  Steve Herrod replied 11 months ago.
It was offered as a model for you to work from. Alternatively I could have done it from scratch but as you have provided a negative rating that isn't something I would be willing to help with now.

Cheers

Steve
