design remains a non-redundant, flat topology.
Your assignment must consider the three-layer hierarchical model. You are free to make supported
assumptions of the applications and services that this organization uses.
Write a one (1) page paper in which you:
1. Depict a network topology graphical model of the initial environment of 10 employees using Visio
or its open source alternative software. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in
the required page length.
2. Depict a network topology graphical model of the current 100 employees using Visio or its open
source alternative software. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the

Assignment 5: Technical Term Paper (Part B)
Due Week 10 and worth 150 points
The Technical Term Paper will include the detailed response to the network design request. The
document will be submitted in MS Word and will be between 10-15 pages with graphics embedded within
the document.
Background
You are a small network design company called Wide-IP that is looking for that big break. As the CTO of
the Wide-IP company, you recently made a persuasive presentation of your companys approach to
designing networks at a large industry event. The CEO of Fiction Corporation, a large retail chain, was
impressed by your presentation. It looks like youve finally got your break!
You have a small team of 10 technically proficient staffers with a strong background in project
management, networking, and internetworking skills that include PMP, Network+, CCNP, and CISSP
credentials.
You have been selected by Fiction Corporation to develop a network design document and plan without
an RFP.
Overview
Fiction Corporation, a large national retail chain of 10,000 employees and 500 retail outlets, is migrating
its one primary data center operation to a new headquarters building several miles away. The company
wishes to upgrade its network and correct any security flaws in its infrastructure as part of this move. The
Fiction CEO has informed you that the capital budget for this migration cannot exceed $500,000 and must
not interrupt business operations. What follows is a brief background that will serve as your foundation in
developing the network design.
The data in the center supports remote retail locations, an off-site 100 seat call center and 3 remote
warehousing operations 24 hours a day with annual uptime at 99.9%. Any significant downtime to its
production systems would impact Fiction Corporations operations and profitability. From the data
processing viewpoint, the move includes 2 large UPS, 4 RS/6000 AIX application servers, 10 virtualized
servers and 20 PC servers.
The network consists of approximately 500 remote location retail stores connected via frame relay (with
ISDN backup) to 10 routers at the data center running a common LAN shared by the entire organization.
The retail operations also run WLANs that are on its own subnet. You will have a T1 link and ISDN as a
primary backup. Network managers also need to monitor the status of remote systems. The SNMP
management system must be able to detect and report failure of the remote system or its communications
link and the status of individual applications.
The company wishes a seamless migration that minimizes impact to its customers and employees. Any
gaps in this background will require you to make sound technical and persuasive assumptions that satisfy
the customers goals that are within the budget guidelines.
You were selected in part due to your detailed analysis and agreement to an implementation cost that will
not exceed $500,000. Your network migration plan will be in phases with noted milestones. Key to the
success of this plan is the availability of a T1 link between the remote sites to support remote bridging
and development of configurations for all the remote routers.
Include the following in your assignment:
1. Title page
2. Table of contents
3. Executive summary
4. Project goal
5. Project scope

Weekly Course Schedule
The purpose of the course schedule is to give you, at a glance, the required preparation, activities, and
evaluation components of your course. For more information about your course, whether on-ground or
online, access your online course shell.
The expectations for a 4.5 credit hour course are for students to spend 13.5 hours in weekly work. This
time estimate includes preparation, activities, and evaluation regardless of the delivery mode.

Instructional Materials
In order to be fully prepared, obtain a copy of the required textbooks and other instructional materials
prior to the first day of class. When available, Strayer University provides a link to the first three (3)
chapters of your textbook(s) in eBook format. Check your online course shell for availability.
Review the online course shell or check with your professor to determine whether Internet-based
assignments and activities are used in this course.
Instructional materials are obtained through the universitys virtual bookstore and can be accessed
through iCampus: http:bookstore.mbsdirect.net/strayer.htm. Courses with Internet-based assignments
and activities on publisher sites may require the purchase of onetime access codes. When purchasing
used textbooks, a separate access code purchase will be necessary.

Discussions
Students taking this course online are required to post their discussions to a weekly thread in the online
course shell. Respond to at least two (2) other students posts to earn full credit for each discussion. As it
is always possible that you could lose your work due to unforeseen circumstances, you should routinely
save your work in a separate file before posting in the course discussion area.
Professors hold discussions during class time for on-ground students. Check with your professor if any
additional discussion participation is required in the online course shell outside of class hours.

Tests
Tests (quizzes, midterm and final exams, essay exams, lab tests, etc.) are available for student access
and completion through the online course shell. Check the online course shell to determine how you are
expected to take the tests.

Online students are to complete the test by Sunday midnight the week the test is due.

On-ground students are to complete the tests after the material is covered and before the next
class session.

Assignments
A standardized performance grading rubric is a tool your professor will use to evaluate your written
assignments. Review the rubric before submitting assignments that have grading rubrics associated with
them to ensure you have met the performance criteria stated on the rubric.
Grades are based on individual effort. There is no group grading; however, working in groups in the
online or on-ground classroom is acceptable.
Assignments for online students are always submitted through the online course shell. On-ground
professors will inform students on how to submit assignments, whether in paper format or through the
online course shell.
