Mayberry Satellite Campus Network Diagram
 

 

Review the Network Configuration Visio® document of the Mayberry Satellite Campus. This diagram will be used throughout the course.

Scenario: As an IT networking trainee for your organization, your supervisor has given you an assignment to review and evaluate ways for improving the network at the Mayberry Satellite Campus. Your task, as detailed below, includes reviewing the existing network cabling and providing a recommendation to improve the speed of the network.

Your task is to prepare a 1-page table using Microsoft® Word or Microsoft® Excel®, with the table column heading of current cabling, solution 1, and solution 2, and the row headings of cabling types, speed of cables, and main function of the cable. In the table, indicate the specifications of two possible hard-wired solutions that would improve the speed of the network. Use the template file provided.

In preparation for Week Two, write a 1/2- to 1-page paper using Microsoft® Word that identifies how a wireless solution with wireless access points could also improve the speed of the network. You can use valid internet sources and related personal experience, or preview Ch. 4, “Wireless Networking,” in Networking Essentials to complete this task.

NTC 362 Week 2 Learning Team: Diagram Current Local Campus Network
 

Throughout the course you will be working with improvements to the Bedford Campus and its satellite campus in Mayberry. The Bedford Campus with its 12 full-time employees and two classrooms has recently increased its online enrollment to 1500 students working asynchronously. The increase in student population has had a significant slowdown in the network connectivity in the classroom. Reports have stated that it can take up to twenty minutes, sometimes longer, to get connected to the online classroom or to get to the Internet.

Your team has been tasked with determining the root cause of this problem. The analysis should begin by taking a holistic view of the Bedford Campus network diagram to understand the topology. Then, progress through the OSI model to find the problem. Also, look for potential choke points that could cause a significant network slowdown. After locating the potential cause of the problem, design a network with a proposed solution.

Develop a 1-page network diagram using Microsoft® Visio®, or one of the free network diagramming programs you researched in Week One, of improvements that could be made to the current configuration, including wireless improvements to the network. Assumptions can be made in order to complete the diagram. The finished diagram should include the following:

 

 

 

Routers and Switches
 

 

Wireless Access Point solutions
 

 

VLAN solutions
 

 

Possible resolutions to potential choke points you have identified
 

 

Submit your diagram assignmentusing the Assignment Files tab.

Review the Network Configuration Visio® document of the Mayberry Satellite Campus. This diagram will be used throughout the course.

Scenario: As an IT networking trainee for your organization, your supervisor has given you an assignment to extend the Mayberry Network to an additional space (see existing diagram). The organization has obtained a space to create a 20-station learning center and two classrooms at the existing location. Each classroom will have one computer for the instructor and a wireless access point for the students. Typically, your supervisor has used computers with an Intel Core i5 processor, 16 GB of RAM, a 500 GB hard drive and a 10/100/1000 Ethernet NIC, but wonders if a better solution is available and would like you to recommend a solution.

Develop a 1-page network diagram using Microsoft® Visio®, or one of the free network diagramming programs you researched in Week One, to create a drawing of the learning center. The diagram should include:

 

 

 

22 computers that you specify
