UMUC IFSM 370Case Study Catacomb[Type the document subtitle]
Requirements analysis1.Catacomb wants to provide increased bandwidth between all 47 of its US offices and the main data center. There are five (5) metropolitan areas that have four (4) to eight (8) Catacomb locations that need to coordinate among themselves: Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City, and San Diego. With the aging ISDN network an upgrade to a T-1 connection provided by an ISP will provide each location with increased bandwidth. The T-1 connection will provide ample bandwidth for voice, data, and video.2.The company desires a reliable and secure network to accommodate its planned growth as well as the unexpected. Installing a firewall at each location will provide a secure network and behind each firewall will be a layer 3 switch which will provide faster routing than a router while also providing expandability at a much cheaper cost.
