Fig6. Collapsed backbone network with 10Mbps cable.
After taking different approach on the abovescenario and as a network consultant I shallrecommend Collapsed backbone topology asit saving us to upgrade and giving more highperformance after active the firewall policyand cut down the WAN link to T1.
wireless connection implementation takesplace on the whole network with firewallpolicy on. We place a single mobile wirelessnode 11Mbps on each LAN total of 9 nodes.The wireless router data rate is 11Mbps isplaced on floor 4. However to generate theresult of wireless LAN application profile ischange as show in table.
Wireless Node Application Profile
Mobile Node 0 Email, Credit CardAuthorizationMobile Node 1 HTTP(light), Musicand Video TransferMobile Node 2 Music and Video,EmailMobile Node 3 File Printing,HTTP(light)Mobile Node 4 Credit Card andHTTP(light)Similar data value are set in remaining 5mobile node.To see the performance of the wireless routerutilization we change it to As it to timeaverage as show in the fig. The average timeshow it download utilization time is0.02second where as floor 4 switch downloadutilization is less than 0.01 second as shown inFig7.
Fig7. Comparison of Wireless Router and floor4 switch.
To see the performance of the Credit cardauthorization response time we compare thefirewall implementation scenario with firewallimplantation with wireless node as shown inFig8.
Fig8. Credit card authorization response time withFirewall_Implemented and Credit card authorizationresponse time with Firewall_Implemented withwireless nodes.
The result showed there is not a difference of credit card authorization response time. Tosee the performance of wireless node onnetwork we see the result of differentwireless node that we placed on differentLANs Fig is shown in 9, 10, 11.
