Final Project: WAN Design
 Resource: Appendix A
 Due Date: Day 7 [Individual forum]
 Read Appendix A.
 Develop a plan to set up a wide area network based on the scenario presented in Appendix A. Your plan must include the following:
o An overview of the company and its needs
o A logical network drawing for Acme to depict the recommended WAN
o Recommendations for the type of leased lines the company should choose at each location, how each location will connect to headquarters, and whether or not each location should be able to connect with the others
o Recommendations for what type of telecommunications system would work best for Acme: PBX or VoIP
o The IP address scheme, including the range of IP addresses, broadcast addresses, and subnets
o A VLAN to appropriately address Acme’s concerns that departments that are not grouped together are logically connected
o Recommendations for network equipment that should be placed at each location; also consider equipment based on the teleconferencing needs
o Protocols that will be used for the routers at each location
o Recommendations for wireless technology
o Recommendations for securing the network
 Create a 700- to 1,050-word network design document addressing each of Acme’s requirements with your recommendations.
 Follow APA formatting guidelines.
 Post your design as a Microsoft® Word attachment.

it reduces substandard interaction that happens in delivering messages. Other three places are the distribution offices that are situated in Chicago. Two of the headquarters are situated in Atlanta. In these two building located across the street from one another. The company’s six different buildings in six different places need to be networked jointly. one of these is the head office building and the other is the engineering building. This lets simple interaction to be achieved for specific requirements. for orders and manufacturing. . On an overall note. There is a necessity of communication between all the distant places and the head office building. Satellite communication will be the selected form of link with the head office building. Logical Network Setup and Locations Interconnection A LAN setup having routers and Ethernet wires will be the selection. all places must be interconnected that allows function flow between each other.WAN Design WAN Design Company Overview The plan under displays the main procedures involved in developing a WAN for Acme Production. the advantage is that network management is centralized. The final division is the plant facility that is situated in China. developing satellite as well will be utilized to interact to the headquarters network. For this. The network topology utilized for Acme’s WAN must be a star topology with every site having just a direct link with headquarters. and New York. Georgia. Phoenix. This is a sensible selection since the speeds of the network will be significantly greater and consequently 2 will lead to a reduced amount of expense. My suggested WAN topology for Acme Manufacturing is displayed in figure one below. Moreover.

VoIP will allow and increase virtual meeting because it is turning into the latest method of conducting business. Thinking “outside the box”. A T1 line transmission speed is about 1. and reduced maintenance expenses are only a few of the advantages.WAN Design 3 NY CHI T3 T3 PHX T3 ATL (HQ) CHINA Figure 1 . This is the kind which makes available a high bandwidth speed that decreases interaction times for industrialized problems and regulating purposes. VoIP would provide lots of benefits. Telecommunications System The telecommunication system which would match Acme Manufacturing will be VoIP. This kind of advantage as cost-efficiency in the utilization of technology decreases telecommunication expenses.Proposed WAN Topology for Acme Manufacturing  The organization would take advantage of the T1 kind of leased lines. Having VoIP system the same cables and wiring which is used in a network may be used for the telecommunication system too.544 mbps and can be utilized for transmitting of 24 digitally transformed voice channels (Kayne. Increased production. IP Address and VLAN . 2009). reduced cost for the cabling setup.

supposing that the same network mask pertains to every subnet (building) of the same network IP address (Regan. 2004). Though divisions aren't physically grouped together. Establishing a Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) will be advantageous. The central network situated at the head office building will spread the connection of all networks of various buildings. Wireless Technology Wireless technologies for example web cameras and microphones will be utilized for the wireless link between mobile workers which would have to commute .WAN Design 4 While thinking about IP address. Listed here are the suggestions of hardware network equipment: • Big mainframe computer systems • Routers and switches • Physical firewalls • Telephony systems • Wireless technologies Mainframe computer systems is the key component to each network. The key reason is greater production and better communication because of link of all six different buildings this network will be managing. this type of big network would need a class C. after that link the networks in a building that subsequently is because of link of all routers and firewalls to the mainframe computer system. grouping them into rational networks provides enhanced efficiency because the broadcast traffic to do similar works is restricted. Network Equipment Network equipment is among the vital components essential in planning a WAN.

Network encryption solutions will shield crucial information reducing the expense of regulatory agreements and information risk management. A physical firewall unit on the mainframe computer will defend each network at each place. 5 One more suggestion will be Wireless WiFI Connection since it is easy to control and easy to use. OSPF is made to work with bigger networks and its domain subdivision authorizes easier control. This protocol emits the direct path first that helps by using bandwidth. The wireless network will work on wireless satellite signals that are utilized for interaction between each building. Router Protocols The router protocols would be OSPF that is short for open shortest path first. Each worker will have a web cam unit and a voice and audio head set to facilitate teleconferences. Antivirus computer software will be set up on each computer system connected to the network. Network Security The last mention will be network safety. . As an element of the Interior Gateway Protocols group it corresponds to internal networks. but not being less significant. complicated user names and security passwords is the requisition. it's important to choose the best amount of security for the network. To fulfill the teleconferencing wants a few parts will be required. Therefore. For the users’ secrecy.WAN Design inside diverse places of the building. Safety of the network is a complex problem.
