the device waits and retries. Leonard Cooper is not operating at the optimal speeds necessary to handle daily business. Another area of contention is the actual speed of the network. If it is already in use. When a device wants to transmit. The person listening must wait until the transmitter concludes the signal transmission before responding to the call otherwise a collision will occur and the entire message won't get received. In the event of a network "collision". A half-duplex system provides signal communication in both directions. "Carrier Sense Multiple Access/ Collision Detect (CSMA/CD)" This allows network devices to "take turns" using the signal carrier line. they are currently working with a 10 megabit connection. Each device then waits a random amount of time and retries until successful in getting the transmission sent. They are presently using a half-duplex system for their print jobs. It was also discovered that his laptop had a 1 gigabit network card installed. the device transmits. A final issue that needs to be addressed is the possibility of adding class room computers to the network.After carefully interviewing the Stake holders of the Leonard Cooper Charter School. both of which use separate conductors for sending and receiving data. So. several issues were observed. nodes only communicate with the switch and never directly with each other. One of the biggest complaints included not being able to use Voice Over IP. an Ethernet standard was put into place called. Legacy Ethernet is half-duplex. 2011). If it isn't in use. Therefore. a more suitable media that will increase their network speeds needs to be put into place. Collisions are a normal occurrence on Ethernets. perhaps in a few seconds. Recommended Solution The best alleviation for print job collisions is to upgrade from a half-duplex to a full duplex switched environment. Switched networks also employ either twisted pair or fiber optic cabling. In a totally switched network. In addition. A good example of this technology might be two-way radios. A cost effective. two devices can transmit at the same time in which case a collision occurs and both devices detect it. both transmitted packets are discarded. The first noticeable concern was the print server. In a half-duplex Ethernet network. To remedy this problem. yet scalable solution is substantial. a collision is the result of two devices on the same Ethernet network attempting to transmit data simultaneously. (Bryant. In this type of environment. meaning information can move in only one direction at a time. however only one direction at a time. Ethernet stations can forgo the collision detection process and . Fischer's interview. However. there seems to be some connectivity issues with the backbone of the network. Based on Mr. Their management of print jobs on the print server are called into question because of the many collisions on the print server. the network speed was definitely the problem. it checks the signal level of the line to determine whether someone else is already using it. Full-duplex is a data communications term that refers to the ability to send and receive data at the same time.
The solution is to implement 3 print servers each having a 24 port switch connected to it. Another reason for wireless is you will always have a connection to the internet. The wireless technology that is recommended is the IEEE 802. Depending on the standard that is chosen. Having a switch on the server would allow each node to communicate with the switch. Fiber optics are immune to RFI (radio frequency interference) and EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) making them ideal for applications where close proximity to electronic devices can cause RFI and EMI disruption. Generally. 2006). With a wireless router. Fiber optic cable has many advantages over copper cable. Based on the many issues discovered in regards to the backbone of the computer network structure. perhaps a more thorough approach is needed. They are generally non-flammable. the 24 Port Switch is highly recommended. Fiber Optic 1000 Base F is highly recommended. Fiber transmits data much faster over longer distances than copper. virtually unable to be tapped. The backbone network is an important architectural element for building enterprise networks.11n. today's wireless technology is cutting edge therefore remedying the ideal solution for networking the classroom computers. Because the company needs to have speeds of 1000. This allows end stations to transmit to the switch at the same time that the switch transmits to them. With proper configuration. Fortunately. Fiber cable is also smaller diameter and weighs less than its copper counterpart. the backbone's capacity is greater than the networks connected to it. it is the most effective and reliable solution. since they are the only potential devices that can access the medium. this hardware set up will be the resolution to the printer collision issue because the switches would manage the print jobs. (Garfield. The 802. Wireless network technology runs at speeds far greater than broadband internet access. It provides a path for the exchange of information between different LANs or sub-networks.transmit at will. wireless can have speed from 11 Mbps to 100 Mbps. achieving a collision-free environment (Pidgeon. Therefore.11n has more speed and range than the other standards. Fiber optic cabling uses less power and provides less signal degradation than copper cables. in different buildings in a campus environment. A backbone can tie together diverse networks in the same building. making it ideal for a variety of cabling solutions. this will enable all computers the needed access to the internet. The switch communicates with the printer. Although this may not be the most cost effective approach initially. 2011). or over wide areas. it's much more cost effective. and are better suited for data and illumination transmission. There is a lot more money required to have additional cabling installed. To begin with. (Sheldon 2001). and a host of wireless antennas strategically located throughout the building. Therefore. It allows easy transfer of the files between your laptops and desktops. one modem. There are a number of benefits involved in adding wireless technology to an existing computer network. Wireless networks also offer easy file access regardless of which part of the building you are in. 100 .
networks. (Novison. 2011) this will suffice the required speeds for Voice over IP phones. The fiber optical can transmit more data because of its design. a fiber optical cable for the backbone connections would be plausible. This standard allows transmission of data at 1 Gbps. .
