 Assignment Description

 Students are required to use an industry case study of your PBL exercise to complete the assignment. It is to note that this assignment consists of two parts a) Assignment 1a and b) Assignment 1b. You have to discuss your chosen case study with a tutor in

week 1 and 2. Make sure to if possible to avoid

Academic Misconduct.

Assignment 1a

  1. Project Scope and report requirements

The project scope and requirement should have a detail explanation of the planning and designing of a network. It is recommended that bullet points are included whenever necessary. Use your Problem Based Learning (PBL) tutorial findings.

The following is the scope for Assignment 1a.

Attach your chosen real-world business case study with reference as an appendix A. Include points that you have gathered from your chosen case study on their existing

network.

Discuss in a tabular form how the information obtained will be useful in designing the

network.

Discuss the approach you will be taking (include bullet points whenever necessary) to redesign the network.

Assignment 1b

The following is the scope for Assignment 1b.

  1. Response to assignment 1a

It is mandatory that students should demonstrate how they have incorporated the feedback given in assignment 1a. You may use a tabular form whenever necessary.

  1. Network design and justification

Draw a network design that you think will be useful in the future for the industry that you

have visited. Network should include the following requirements: o 3 routers

o 4 switches o 10 PCs

o  4 VLANs.

Suitable IP addressing scheme in tabular form (assume as many hosts as necessary for each department). Use your MIT student ID to come up with your own IP addressing scheme (to

avoid Academic Misconduct). Justify the choice of IP address.

Indicate where do you use static routing, dynamic routing protocols (name the protocols, RIP, EIGRP, OSPF, etc.), Access Control List (ACL) as per the network preferences. Justify your choices.

  1. Network configuration

Configure your network using Packet Tracer. Write a report on

Packet Tracer Network diagram- Copy diagram from your simulator Switch configuration

Router configuration Host configuration

Access point and server configuration guidelines.

  1. Timeline and Budget estimation

This section should include the followings:

Hardware requirements with the specification with costs Human resources and logistics

Tentative timeline specifications.

Misconduct). Justify the choice of
IP address.
15 Network configuration Well-designed topology diagram with
simulating software.
Network devices and appropriate command
for the configuration should be detailed for
implementation purposes.
It would be best to have
Comments for the commands used for
configuration. For example, the
following commands are for the
dynamic routing protocol used for the
configuration, the following commands
for VLANs, creating trunk links, static
routes, etc.
Connectivity testing ping snapshots.
