Network Design ProposalPrepared for:University of Maryland University CollegePrepared by: Tahnee Klubnikin
I.Physical Network DesignA.Network TopologyBusiness NeedsThe goal of effectively building a new network starts with the physical structure and foreseeing possible problems later on, which means that starting with the best topology that is easy to troubleshoot and reconfigure. Proposed TopologyKlub Corporate is proposing to implement a star topology in the network design. A star topology will connect all devices, within that room, to one location. Data traffic will be minimized greatly because messages are sent straight to the destination device. Justification
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.
JustificationThe security of data and information is Klub Corporates first priority, which is why fiber optic cables are our first choice. The advantages are: it is completely immune to XXXXX
EMI, resistant from eavesdropping (improving security), it supports high data transmission rates, and it allows greater cable distances without using a repeater.
