GLOBAL PACKAGING COMPANY 2 Abstract When implementing a network on a global level, many considerations must be made in order for it to efficiently and appropriately serve its purpose. Some of those considerations include performance, security and disaster recovery. The following scenario depicts those considerations when designing and executing a global network solution. Global Packaging Company headquartered in Los Angeles, CA has been tasked with creating a networking solution that will serve its major offices in Madrid, Spain, Tokyo, Japan and Sydney, Australia. LAN and WAN design details are included as well as the IP addressing scheme, network security hardware choices and a disaster recovery plan.

GLOBAL PACKAGING COMPANY 3 Global Packaging Company: International Network Design The Global Packaging Company’s network proposal incorporates top down efficiency with bottom up security and capability. Combining the technology of different companies can sometimes create conflicts in the system, but when combined properly and efficiently, those conflicts can be mitigated. Due to the company’s global presence from Los Angeles, CA to Tokyo, Japan and in-between there will be a need for durable and capable components that can provide support for over 600 employees and have room for expansion. Part of the infrastructure that will be incorporated are routers, switches, servers, FDDI, cat6, cat5e, workstations, and all- in-one printers, among others. As we look at the network layout, we discuss the many areas that encompass the entirety of it and what is involved in the makeup. LAN A LAN or local area network is a group of devices that connect to a network on the same lines. This company has four different locations that need to communicate. The headquarters is in Los Angeles, California. In this building we will be connecting various devices to include routers, wireless routers, switches, cat6 cabling and fiber optic cabling. Let’s start with the connection to the building. We will use an Internet service provider to run a dedicated line to the building. We will begin with the best router, which, we believe is one that can support multiple USB ports and high Ethernet capability, the Cisco ASR 1009-X Router (highlights of this in particular router are addressed in the WAN block of this document) (Cisco, n.d.). There are so many different types of cables that we can use. The best for this company is to use cat6 cables and fiber optic. The cat6 cable is newer and able to handle the router and switches that are running 10 GB Ethernet ports. Cat6 also provides better security by not allowing as much crosstalk. The cat6 cabling will run about the ceiling tile down to a port on the
