Term Paper – Project PlanOverview
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
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 company’s 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 you’ve 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.
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
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 Corporation’s 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
customer’s 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.
