How do I create a network design for a large business? The following is the scenario and the requirements, I need so help please.
An Ice Cream Factory with 5 stores, citywide and has connectivity to the corporate office in Austin. Each store is responsible for maintaining its inventory locally, but must communicate with the warehouse on a weekly basis to keep inventory current and stocked. Each store has a Manager?s office, Administrative Assistant?s office, and an employee lounge/conference room. The only wireless capability in each store is for the customers? convenience while they are visiting the ice cream shop. The creamery factory and warehouse is located in Round Rock, a small town near Austin. Each week, all employees are required to attend a videoconference at the local stores on Monday afternoon. This is a national chain that spans the continental US. The country is divided into regions; Northeast, Southeast, Central, Northwest, and Southwest. Your potential network is located in the Central area of the country and must have connectivity to the other regions. The Regional Office is located in Brenham, the home of the original factory. Customers worldwide are allowed to place orders for ice cream over the Internet. All online orders are processed through the Regional Offices.
Design a network for implementation. You will need to decide what type of WAN connection will be best for your network. Also, you will be responsible for the purchase of All Equipment And Cabling for all of the locations of the network. You will need to design the Network Topology, physical and logical; determine all of the network and computing equipment, cabling, data transmission method, type of network, and any other items required to design the best possible network for your client.
