Purpose of the assessment (with ULO Mapping) After successful completion of this assignment, students should be able to:

- Compare performance metrics and dimensions according to specifications
Excelfior Ltd. is a Melbourne based Digital Communication Company that specialises in designing, hosting and managing corporate websites. Apart from the regular Admin, Accounts, Finance and Marketing Departments, they also have groups of Front and Back End Developers along with Flash Designers.
The existing network is old, not very secure and having various networking issues. They want to rebuild their entire network. Assume that you have been appointed in the role of an IT Consultant to re-build, manage and operate the new, secure, domain based network system for Excelfior Ltd. You are required to use the latest technologies which can accommodate their network load now and for another five years.
It is difficult to build a solution if you do not know the requirements. Your task is to gather requirements (User, Application, Device and Network) to complete this project with the help of techniques such as Questionnaire, interviews from Users or Management staff. Students must discuss questionnaire/interview with tutor before finalising all requirements.
Furthermore, with the help of diagrams and flow charts, categorise and discuss all requirements in groups and create assessment plan for the Excelfior Ltd. network.
Your task is to come up with a logical, efficient and scalable network design that is suitable for Excelfior. Analyse all requirements gathered in Task 1 and proposed suggestions accordingly. Create network performance metrics including (Bandwidth, Delay, Jitter, Packet loss, Utilisation, uptime or responsiveness etc) and justify your proposed solution.
Make sure you provide enough information that will allow IT technicians to build network infrastructure from scratch. The Company has an adequate budget to purchase networking devices, obviously does not want to spend more than necessary.
