Capstone Papers-Network Optimization
A company has offices in eight locations. Each location has twenty to twenty-five servers. There are sixty to seventy employees in each location. All these locations are connected to the headquarters through a frame relay packet switched network. The access speed of the Internet is 128 kbps. All the locations access the Internet through a central location. Over the past couple of months, a few more employees have joined the organization, and over a period of three months, the network has been slow. The users are finding it difficult to connect to the network. The network is inconsistent in its performance—at times it is fast and at times slow. There is no change in the network configuration.
