Network Design Paper




Building dimensions: Length: 240 Feet, Width: 95 Feet, Height: 30 Feet;The 50-year-old two-story building has the following layout;There will be seven instructional computer labs that will be used for instruction. Each of these labs will have 30 computers (29 student computers and 1 instructor computer). Each of these labs will also have a server in the closet located inside the lab.;In addition to the six computer labs, there will also be a Student Computer Lab that will provide computer access to students to do their homework. There will be 50 computers in this lab and a server in the closet.;The library will also have some computers to allow students access to the library resources. There will be 20 computers for student?s use in the library, and 3 computers for Library staff.;There are seven lecture classrooms in the building. Each of this room will have a computer for instructor?s use.;Finally, there are various offices in the building. Each of these offices will have one computer for the staff use, with the exception of the Admission office that will have 7 computers for staff use.;Equipment Inventory;Workstation;Placement;Number of Computers;Users;Total Computers;7 Instructional Computer labs;30;Student and Faculty;210;Student Computer Lab;50;Student;50;10 various offices;10;Staff/Faculty;10;Admission office;7;Staff;7;Library;20;Student;20;Library;3;Staff;3;7 classrooms;1;Faculty;7;Server;Staff;To be determined by students;Network Connecting Devices;IT Staff;To be determined by students;Printers;To be determined by student;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.;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.;Security is very important for UMUC as we have to protect students and employee?s data as well as any intellectual property that UMUC has on the servers and computers.;The network has been assigned the network address for all computers and devices. For Internet routing use IP address.;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 ten pages, excluding diagrams and references);Network Addressing;Define the subnet (based on: rooms, floor, department, or other criteria).;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;Define the topology that will be used.;Select the appropriate network media to use.;Select the appropriate network connecting devices to use.;Physical layout of the computers on the floor plan.;List of additional servers or network devices needed to implement the network.;Justifications for your network design (number 1 ? 5 above);You will be evaluated on your ability to;Implement appropriate IP addressing scheme;select and justify appropriate cable media that includes the length of each cable segment and number of nodes on each segment;select and justify appropriate topology such as star, bus, or ring for your network;select and justify of your selected network equipments;select and justify appropriate network services to meet network requirements;select and justify security implementation for the network;use proper grammar, formatting, network terminology, and reference citations
