In addition to this, centralized scanner/printer machines are used and the systems are connected to the switches by the means of CAT 6 cables in the network. The switches used in the network for the connections are Cisco Catalyst 2800 24 Port Layer 2 switch. The layer 2 switches consist of the 24 ports that can be used for the connection to the networks. The Cisco Catalyst 2800 Series Routers are also used for the successful division of the network and also for guiding the networks. This network would be stable for the company for an even length of time.

Activity 2:

The New Hp Laserjet Pro Color M176n Multifunction Printer (Print, Scan. Copy, Network) are selected for the company. The printer would be very helpful for the company as this would be very efficient for the network. the print speed of the printer is 16 ppm. In addition to this, USB 3.0, Ethernet (RJ-45), USB 2.0 contentions are enabled in the printer. In addition to this, the printer also provides the option of both printing and scanning to the company.

Activity 3:

The Network Layout for the company is provided below, it is constructed according to the requirements specified by the company. The network is implemented with a minimal cost.

Activity 4:

The Internet service providers are required to provide the internet services for the network. the selection of a suitable internet service provider is required and hence a brief analysis about the different Internet service providers are listed below:

The analysis of the top three Internet Service Provider is done in this report. Selection among one of these Internet Service providers is a must for the company as these as these are very efficient and also provides a wide range of product.

Activity 5:

The internal communication within the network is very essential and this provided by the Internet Service provider within the network. the portal and the email services are provided by the internet services provider. No extra Servers are installed in the network, as this would increase the cost of the network. The network is distributed within the whole office by the means of routers and switches. The file transfer procedures within the network are also performed on the web by the network and the components of the network.

Activity 6:

The following table provides the information about the network that is to be set up in the

Activity 7: 

It can be easily seen that the network is only required to me implemented within a single floor. The different segments in the floor are Administrator manager, Film Editor, Office Area Worker, Conference Lounge, and Temporary Worker Area. five Switches are selected and installed in the network for distribution of the network in the different parts of the office. The switches are connected to the network via means of router. The main switch is connected to the router and in addition to this four other switches are connected to the main switch. Among the four switches one is connected to the machine of the administrator, another one is connected to the machine of the video editor. In addition to this a switch is allocated for the additional staffs and also another one is installed in the network for the mobile network use group.

Activity 8:

The network makes use of only a single router and this router is assigned with the address 128.0.0.0/01.

Major Network: 128.0.0.0/01

Available IP addresses in major network: 2147483646

Number of IP addresses needed: 20

The network is to be secured with firewall and different authorization levels are to be declared in the network so that the unidentified access to the network are prohibited and also the data of the network is protected efficiently. The Network is secured with the WPA 2 security setup. WPA2 is the IEEE 802.11i standard that restricts the access of outsiders in the network. The WPA2 security makes use of the advanced encryption security. This security is generally used by the IEEE 802.11i standard. In fact, the IEEE 802.11i standard is known as the WPA2 or the IEEE 802.11i standard. The AES also known as Counter Mode Cipher Block Chaining-Message Authentication Code (CBC-MAC) protocol (CCMP) is used efficiently by this security standard. This helps to provide both data efficiency and also data integrity within the network. This is used as the security standard is more secure than the WEP and the WPA2 security standards.

Hence, it can be clearly seen that the total budget of the project is around $ 125,940.

Future plans

The network can be easily expanded in the future. This network can be utilized to add more number of systems into the network. For this, the bandwidth of the network is required to be increased and also the number to systems and access points in the networks can also be increased. In addition to this the design of the network is done so that the network is suitable for the next 10 years. In addition to this, the network has been designed in a manner so that the   network is designed with a minimum cost.

Conclusions

For conclusion it can be said that the expansion and the improvement of the networking structure is very important for the AnyCompany Organization. For the implementation of the network a detailed analysis of the current situation of the company is required. The report provides the analysis of the current systems of the company. The project proposal, methodology and timetables has been provided in this report. In addition to this, technical solutions and evaluation of the technical solutions have also been provided in this report. In addition to this it is also known that the project can be completed in 92 days. The total budget of the project is around $ 125,940. The network makes use of only a single router and this router is assigned with the address 128.0.0.0/01. Hence, all the objectives and the needs statement for the project is met.
