hypothetical network

The context for this hypothetical network is a small community wishing to build/develop a continuing education center for the members of the community. The goal is to support a range of ages, educational subjects, vocational training, skill acquisition, and GED or other certification programs. The community does not have an unlimited budget and plans to use bonds and donations to build the center. The hope is that the center will provide opportunities for both in person technology access as well as online courses/opportunities. Need for social distancing and reduction of vectors for disease transmission are important in the mind of the community, but planning for a post-pandemic future and realizing the needs of community members with limited technology background, computer/Internet access constraints, cognitive support needs, and preferences for in-person support are also important. The community would like to support BYOD options as well as on-site lab computers to serve a variety of community members.

Your task is to develop an initial network plan that considers these needs and goals. Keep in mind that this is a small community and there is not an unlimited budget, but a reliable, secure, and supportive networked solution is needed. Your plan should serve as a proposal/baseline for the community to consider. In your network plan, you should at least consider the following:

· physical hardware (cabling, routers, switches, WAPs, servers, client/desktop/laptop nodes, topology, etc.

· servers/services (web, database, file storage, VDI, LMS, cloud services, etc.)

· backup and security (software and hardware, cloud services/support, etc.)

· administration & support (local personnel, contracted services/personnel, software, hardware, etc.)

This should be a multi-page document that outlines your suggestions for the networked solution and provides arguments and potential alternatives for some of the recommendations you are making for the new center. Your responses should be thoughtful and explain why your suggested network plan makes sense for the community’s needs. You are trying to convince the community that they should adopt your plan. Just putting a bulleted list of networking terms, or a table without description of the what, how, and why will not earn you very many points. You may use references to commercial products, but don’t just copy and paste blurbs from websites and stick them into a document. Present an argument as to why your solution is complete and should be implemented. This does not need to be the 20-30 page kind of network plan you may sometimes see as an example online, but it does need to be an initial 3-5 page minimum first proposal of a networked solution.
