hi people,

i need help with this task that i have been required to do, i really appriciate it if anyone can help me with it,


Requirement

An enterprise wishes to construct its own physical network to provide connectivity to its various users distributed around its geographically dispersed operation. Using the company specification given overleaf, design, draw and justify your design. Your answer should con-tain (i) a description of your interpretation of the workgroup and inter-connection require-ments, (ii) diagram(s) illustrating your design, and (iii) an accompanying textual description of your diagrams and decisions.



Specification


Queenstown University has three campuses within the municipality of Queenstown. A num-ber of department buildings at the Ludlow Road site are linked by an ATM backbone with ATM switches in each building. The network designers have determined that in each teaching building a subnet should be assigned to each of the department’s four academic, undergradu-ate, postgraduate and admin user-groups. An additional Services building houses the main WAN router as well as the Network Admin team. The main student information and authen-tication server is housed on this site.

The Ludlow site is linked to the two other campuses: Daze Park and Deerhampton Hill. Daze Park is a single large building with a 1 Gigabyte Ethernet backbone linking many small design and video processing PC laboratories each generating massive amounts of network traffic.

The Deerhamption Hill campus focuses on the delivery of Masters courses in its two build-ings. Each course recruits between 30 and 50 students who have their own study space in-cluding a specialised laboratory.

hi guys, by posting my course work here, i don’t mean you guys to finish or do the coursework for me, i just begging you guys to help me through it, as i have absolutely no past experience with networking or designing an enterprise network, please please i am very grateful for any help from you guys, here is my email address, rastin@live.co.uk , i look forward for your help.

here is the Requirement

An enterprise wishes to construct its own physical network to provide connectivity to its various users distributed around its geographically dispersed operation. Using the company specification given overleaf, design, draw and justify your design. Your answer should contain (i) a description of your interpretation of the workgroup and inter-connection requirements, (ii) diagram(s) illustrating your design, and (iii) an accompanying textual description of your diagrams and decisions.

Additional Requirements

 Use network component icons developed in the laboratory worksheets (or those below).
 Use Visio or equivalent drawing package to construct your diagrams showing the logical structure of your design.
 Note that there is not necessarily a single correct answer. However, avoid clever answers (e.g. vLANs) unless you fully understand the technology and can adequately explain and justify your answer.
 Marks will be deducted if it is not clear which components are connected to which other components.
 If you feel any of the specification below is ambiguous or unclear, feel free to make any sensible assumptions – though remember to write down these assumptions in your report.
 Avoid generating one large diagram. Break you design into stages, documenting each, and showing how these are connected.
 There are no specific length or word count requirements. However please note the marking criteria listed overleaf.

Just post when you get stuck on something. There's several here that can probably give you direction. Obviously the best thing you can do is try to do it all on your own and ask for confirmation if you got it right or not.

I'll tell you how I would start. The Services Building is the most important since the project requires all authentication on the remote sites to pass through there. (That's stupid in my opinion but we won't go into that.)
That means that the PDC has to be there. Let's say we use Windows 2003 R2 Server and ISA and that there are at least 4 BDCs, since we need to load balance the traffic. We will also use a Cisco HFR (Huge Fast Router) which sells for $450,000. After all, money is no object.

Our web site will not be hosted on the above system. Groups and OUs and subnets will be created as the other sites are built, however we can start with the basic administrator group.
