o Second Floor:
? Management
• 6 Workstations
• 12 Wireless Devices
• 1 Teleconferencing Board room
• Building 2
o Ground Floor:
? Main manufacturing floor
• 10 Wireless Devices
• 4 Computer Controlled Devices
o First Floor:
? Component design
• 8 Workstations
• 1 3D Printer
o Second Floor:
? Orders and Shipping
• 5 Workstations
• Building 3
o Ground Floor:
? Small components assembly
• 7 Workstations
• 3 Wireless Devices
• 3 Computer Controlled Testing Devices
o First Floor:
? Electrical manufacturing
• 11 Workstations
o Second Floor:
? Research and Design
• 15 Workstations (Secured)
• 3 3D Printers
? External (Defence and Secret) Projects
• -Some- workstations and devices
Task Details
You have been hired to design and, after approval, implement a network for WMS. In this submission you should make a LOGICAL topology design of the network taking into account what you know about collisions and network devices. You should also use VLANs for restricting sensitive resources to only those areas that need it.
You should use the symbols provided in the Visio Stencil for Week 1 workshop.
Remember, this is a topology design. Logical concepts need to be displayed, physical implementation design decisions (such as which model router to use, how far a cable runs) are not important.
Marks Worth 15% of the total marks of the unit
