2 Advanced Switching and Routing Principles and Practices : McFarlane, Jermaine Plummer, Steve Riggens, Sharaela Sikandar, Muhammad Soltow, Kregg Sharaela Riggens: There are several connectivity devices that are required for the organization to successfully link all of the branches. The organization is consisted of seven branches in five different states. Each branch has five floors. With the organization’s recent expansion project the company will need more hardware connectivity devices to ensure that the expansion is successful and effective. I recommend that each branch has 4 routers one for each floor therefore the organization will need 28 routers. Each floor is a small network that has to connect to the other networks throughout the same branch. In addition, the organization should have approximately 7 switches. Each branch needs a switch to link it to the other branches in the organization. I think the organization’s branches need an estimated amount of 250 Ethernet cables and Network Interface Cards. These particular hardware connectivity devices are imperative for the business’ Internet connection. The unshielded twisted pair is the cables that I recommend that the organization utilize for their connectivity. Unshielded twisted pair cables will reduce noise for the organization and crosstalk. UTP cables will also provide the organization with higher-speed data rates (Mansfield & Antonakos, 2010). There should be 5 firewalls on each floor of every branch to protect the organization from potential threats. Lastly,

    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.
