present at each building to handle plugging into the campus core backbone, again allaying any bottleneck fears at this rung of the information ladder.

RE: Network Design Jermaine Huggins 9/16/2016 9:43:23 PM Your design for this mini case is what I believe recommended and best business practice. Dividing the number of host per floor can certainly keep the network balanced and prevent bottlenecks. Of course we have to take into consideration which department(floors) will have more data moving in and out the network and perhaps designate that department as a high traffic LAN/VLAN. My only concern is the building with the data center located on the second floor. Will the load of the network (weight) be properly supported/architectural challenge? is cooling­HVAC sufficient?is there elevator access to move equipment in and out with ease? RE: Network Design Cheikh Kebe 9/13/2016 2:00:44 PM Logical design is Software setup. The goal of the needs analysis step is to produce a logical network design, which is a statement of the network elements needed to meet the needs of the organization. The logical design does not specify technologies or products to be used (although any specific requirements are noted). Instead, it focuses on the fundamental functionality needed, such as a high­speed access network, which in the technology design stage will be translated into specific technologies. Once the needs have been defined in the logical network design, the next step is to develop a physical network design (or set of possible designs). The physical network design starts with the client and server computers needed to support the users and applications. If the network is a new network, new computers will need to be purchased. If the network is an existing network, the servers may need to be upgraded to the newest technology. Thank you! Cheikh

It does not specify actual technology, more than the functions which will be required (ie, applications). This is versus the physical portion of the design in the network, which comes after the logical portion of the layout, which is anything such as cables, hardware, switches, etc. RE: Network Design Jeremy Rak 9/13/2016 9:59:43 PM The logical design does not explain the gear or hardware in the design (FitzGerald, et al, 2015). The logical design explains ground requirements in relation to the amount of data will be sent and received, and the application systems planned for the network, (FitzGerald, et al, 2015). This needs assessment will then be translated into the physical network design once the traffic and user requirements are understood by network analyst (FitzGerald, et al, 2015). Physical network design takes the needs assessment and translates it into

    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.
