Network Design Proposal-CMIT 265

In this section, address each of the following.

  1. Define the network topology that will be used and justify the decision.
  2. Select the appropriate cables and connectors and justify the decision. Describe where wired connections will be used within or across the two new academic buildings and justify the decision. Students must use both wired and wireless technologies.
    • Student should be specific when discussing the models, types, and costs.
  3. Select the appropriate networking and internetworking hardware for each building, and justify the decision.
    • Student should be specific when discussing the models, types, and costs.
  4. Select the appropriate Wide Area Network (WAN) design and wireless configuration, and justify the decision. Students must use both wired and wireless technologies.
    • Student should be specific when discussing the models, types, and costs.
  5. Consider that faculty, students, and guests can bring their own devices (BYOD) and use their computer in each of the buildings.
    • Student should be specific when discussing the models, types, and costs.
  6. Select the appropriate computer systems hardware to use to support the faculty, students, and overall network design; and justify the decision(s).
    • Student should be specific when discussing the models, types, and costs.

Students will find the majority of information working through the TestOut LabSim labs. Students should seek additional information to include in each submission as described in the overview by searching scholarly journals and other credible sources as appropriate. Reputable technical websites can be considered a credible source, but make sure to include at least two scholarly sources for each part of the Network Design Proposal.
