Topic: o Comparing different design models to study the effects of hardware choices on a LAN. Objectives: o To compare the effects on the performance of a network when different choices are made in regard to hardware and design structures when planning a LAN. Implementation: o The initial model was implemented for a company with four departments, each having a 10 workstation LAN assigned as subnets with the four department names. Three servers (Database, Web and File) were used in a server subnet and connected via an ethernet switch using 10BaseT links. The four department subnets were connected to the server subnet via 100BaseT links and the size of the LAN was defined as 1 mile x 1 mile and named SimpleNetwork. Figure 5 – 1 shows the completed network. o The creation of the initial model was made possible using OPNET profiles which allowed for certain user modifications with pre-defined patterns of usage for each of the departments. Web server was assigned heavy and light web browsing, light email and light telnet. File server was assigned light file transfer and light file print, and the database server was assigned light database access. As no background traffic exists in the SimpleNetwork model, it was duplicated as BusyNetwork and assigned a background utilization of 99%.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
