Assignment Description
Global Solutions is a well renowned automobile parts manufacturing company. The
company’s head office is located in the city centre of Leeds, West Yorkshire. The head office
consists of three departments: general support, marketing, and sales. General support is
located on the first floor, while the marketing and the sales departments are located on
second and third floors of the building respectively. General support has 28 workstations,
marketing has 25 workstations, and sales has 40 workstations. Some applications require that
data be shared between departments, but generally, each department has its own
applications. Every workstation needs access to the Internet, the company internal Internet
(intranet), and e-mail. Suppose you are hired as the network engineer of the company to
design the network for head office.
The company is also planning to establish five offices in Halifax, Huddersfield, Wakefield,
Dewsbury, and Bradford. The area manager of the company has asked you to prepare a
networking solution that enables employees in all five offices to communicate both internally
in that office and, to a lesser extent, between the other offices and head office. The farthest
distance between any two offices is 50 kilometres. According to the specifications provided,
the most user resource requirements will be met by servers located in the same office as the
users who need to access them. The main communication requirements between offices
relate to e-mail and periodic file transfers.
You are required to design this network as a wired network.
The report should include following sections:
1. Introduction
2. The LAN network design of the head office
i. Discuss the locations of all workstations and interconnecting devices, such as
switches, and routers, if any to be used
ii. Discuss and justify the recommended media type
iii. Discuss the type of LAN topology and protocol to be used
iv. Discuss the connection that provides the Internet access to the LAN
v. The sketch of network plan for each floor (using some basic tools/utilities for
network design)
3. The WAN network design between all five offices and the head office
i. The sketch of the WAN connectivity (using some basic tools/utilities for
network design)
ii. Discuss the devices to be used such as routers (if any) and their functioning
iii. justify the recommended media type
iv. Discuss the type of network structure suitable in this scenario (circuit switched
or packet switched structure)
v. Discuss the recommended routing protocol in this scenario (RIP or OSPF)
4. A summary section
5. References in IEEE style
