HOSPITALNetwork Upgrade1
I.EXECUTIVE SUMMARYJob Well Done (HOSPITAL) Hospital is interested in an upgrade to its network system. The current network supports email,basic Internet access, and a few specialized medical software tools. Users have complained about occasional downtime and slowresponse times when accessing the network, especially at peak access times. At a minimum, HOSPITAL wishes to correct these issuesthrough an upgrade to their system, but management is also looking to be able to improve productivity and increase security of theconfidential data sent over their network.The proposed solution that follows involves significant changes to HOSPITAL’s network systems. The current hardware usedthroughout the network was purchased over a long period of time and uses many different technologies. The new basic physicalnetwork architecture will require several upgrades in hardware that address these incompatibilities and older technologies. The resultwill be higher speeds, more reliability, and easier maintenance of network components. The upgraded hardware will use up-to-date,compatible technologies that will greatly facilitate troubleshooting and maintenance as well as resolve the slow access times that arecurrently being reported.In addition to updating the hardware, the proposed solution outlines some changes in the network configuration. Thesechanges, if implemented, will provide greater reliability and security for all users of the HOSPITAL network. Along with the newhardware, the new network configuration will open the door for HOSPITAL to explore new possibilities in using the network toincrease overall productivity and, in the end, better serve the needs of their patients.The solution outlined below will provide the greatest benefit possible for HOSPITAL--meeting all of their current needs andproviding for future expansion--at the lowest cost possible. The total estimated cost for the project is just under $900,000; this takesinto account not only resolving current network problems, but also the overall cost of network ownership in the future.
