• Recommendations for what type of telecommunications system would work best for Acme, PBX or VoIP
• The IP address
scheme, including the range of IP addresses, broadcast addresses, and subnets
• A VLAN to appropriately address Acme’s concerns that departments that are not grouped together are logically connected
• Recommendations for network equipment that must be placed at each location; also, consider equipment based on teleconferencing needs
• Protocols used for the routers at each location
• Recommendations for wireless technology
