Implementing a star topology in all rooms allows the network administrator to troubleshoot and reconfigure with ease. If a cable breaks or malfunctions, only that single device attached to it will be affected. Thus, enabling the students and staff to continue using the lab or other devices in the room without having to shut the whole classroom down to troubleshoot. This can save a great deal of time for the University. B.Network MediaBusiness Needs The staff and students at UMUC deserve the most efficient and most secure media available. Their security is top priority to protect all student and staff data and information against hackers and the growing cyber security threats that are rising every day. High speed and low traffic are also essential for college students to continue their work without downtime. Proposed Network MediaWe propose to implement Fiber Optic cabling throughout the building to replace the older, lower speed and less secure cables installed. Using fiber optic cables will allowfor high-speed applications, which result in a minimal possible signal loss. Fiber opticcables are also highly resistant to eavesdropping, which improves the security of yourdata. We will be using single mode fiber optic cables to route the network from the demarc to the IDF in the server room on the second floor. Then we will route it from the server room to each closet in the classroom and to a wall jack in each office or room. The fiber optic cable will support 100 Mbps and up to 412 meters in length.
