Assignment Description A case study: Local Area Network design and configuration There is an organisation which is primarily e-commerce business. It is going through a major transformation because of its expansion. The expansion is due to merger of two smaller businesses to the organisation. Now, the organisation is moving to a new building having about 100 employees. The new building is of three floors. The ground floor is for reception, foyer and warehouse so there is a need of five data points at reception, four in warehouse and two in foyer. The 1st floor consists of five offices and forty open plan office cubicles. The 2nd floor consists of three rooms, each room have four office cubicles, two offices and thirty open plan cubicles. There is also a meeting room at 2nd floor that requires four data points. Each and every person needs two data points at their desk whether it’s an office, room cubicle or open plan cubicle. This organisation needs a new LAN plan, design and implementation before they move to new facility. Description Design a local area network for the given case study. Write a report on a network plan and configurations having following sections: 1. Analyse the need for the network for above case study. Investigate and propose a suitable complete network design for the case study. 2. Create an appropriate framework and standards for the planned network. Write a detailed setup of network devices only for a LAN. 3. Write a detailed implementation report which includes configurations of each networking device which are included in the whole network. 4. Demonstrate and compare at least 2 configuration results which may include at least two switches/routers and two PCs on physical networking devices.

Assignment Description
A case study: Local Area Network design and configuration
There is an organisation which is primarily e-commerce business. It is going through a major transformation
because of its expansion. The expansion is due to merger of two smaller businesses to the organisation. Now,
the organisation is moving to a new building having about 100 employees. The new building is of three floors.
The ground floor is for reception, foyer and warehouse so there is a need of five data points at reception, four
in warehouse and two in foyer. The 1st floor consists of five offices and forty open plan office cubicles. The 2nd
floor consists of three rooms, each room have four office cubicles, two offices and thirty open plan cubicles.
There is also a meeting room at 2nd floor that requires four data points. Each and every person needs two data
points at their desk whether it’s an office, room cubicle or open plan cubicle.
This organisation needs a new LAN plan, design and implementation before they move to new facility.
Description
Design a local area network for the given case study.
Write a report on a network plan and configurations having following sections:
1. Analyse the need for the network for above case study. Investigate and propose a suitable complete
network design for the case study.
2. Create an appropriate framework and standards for the planned network. Write a detailed setup of
network devices only for a LAN.
3. Write a detailed implementation report which includes configurations of each networking device
which are included in the whole network.
4. Demonstrate and compare at least 2 configuration results which may include at least two
switches/routers and two PCs on physical networking devices.
Demonstration: Students can demonstrate in a group of 2. Students should be ready with all setup and
configurations before start of the laboratory class. Tutor will ask 2-3 questions to each student to demonstrate
any configuration of the setup. Demonstration from each student should not be more than 3 minutes.
Students should give their group members to tutor in week 8 during lab class. Students will get demonstration
timetable before start of the week 8 lab class.
