Non-Functional requirements

The paper mainly focusses on setting up broadband services for a small city of Australia in order to provide proper facility of internet connection. It is identified that the plan was mainly set for providing appropriate internet connection facility to the people who mainly lives far way from the area of city. With the help of this plan, the people can be able to get the facility of internet connection. In addition to this, it is identified that the project will be mainly commenced on 29-05-18 and will be successfully completed within 70 days and thus the assumed end date of the project will be around 03-09-18.

After conducting proper analysis, number of ethical issues as well as challenges are generally identified. The ethical issues include:

 Data loss: It is identified that if the data that is stored get lost then it will generally create ethical issues.

Unauthorized access: If any users enters the network without proper authorization then it can be considered as ethical issues.

The activities that are generally used in order to deploy the set up for the broadband service is provided in the table below:

It is identified that it is assumed that the project will get finished within 14 weeks but as the project manager want earlier finish date and therefore the project is crashed for 2 weeks. It is found that after crashing the duration of the project gets minimized by 2 weeks and thus the duration that is needed for finishing the project will be around 12 weeks that is mainly reflected with the help of screenshot that is provided below:

After reviewing the project properly, it is identified that the duration that is needed for setting up the broadband service will be around 12 weeks after crashing. It is found that the project will get successfully finished within the expected timeline. As it is analyzed that number of ethical issues are associated with the project and in order to resolve the issues, following recommendations are generally provided below:

 Authentication: Proper authentication must be provided for avoiding data loss and unauthorized access.

 Firewall: The firewall assists in avoiding unauthorized access of information and thus helps in resolving ethical issues
