NETWORK CONSULTANT SCENARIO 2 Network Consultant Scenario A multimedia development firm is anticipating a moderate growth and I believe a star topology will be great for the company and easy to expand, if needed. A star topology is a great and clear choice for the company. The company currently has in place an Ethernet network that has a bandwidth of 10Mbps.
