NTC 248 Week 3 Individual Wireless Local-Area Network

NTC 248 Week 3 Individual: Wireless Local-Area Network


Following your submission in the Week Two individual assignment, “Logical Network Diagram,” the client approved your logical network diagram for their three retail locations in different cities with a locally hosted Data Center. The client has requested you propose an IP addressing scheme for this network and add a WLAN at each location into your diagram.


Revise your logical network diagram with a locally hosted Data Center to include the WLAN features. Annotate the diagram to include the following:


•           Wireless access points for optimum coverage and their connectivity to the existing network devices


•           IP addresses to all the network devices and the interfaces between the switches and the routers


Write a 1-page Microsoft® Word document explaining your chosen network layout and including the following:


•           Why you chose the number of wireless access points you did for optimum coverage


•           Your rationale for the IP addressing scheme you selected for this network


•           Why you placed network devices (i.e., routers, switches, etc.) at the particular locations you did on your drawing


•           The routing protocol you would use for this network and why


Note: You will use this assignment in your Week Four individual assignment, “Physical Network Diagram – Security and Business Continuity.”
