Widgets and Gadgets (WaG) have recently acquired a business, We Make Stuff (WMS), in another city. Before work can commence on integrating WMS's network into WaG's, WMS actually need to have a network. WMS consists of four close buildings, each with multiple floors. Each floor is dedicated to a business function as defined in the following network design topology.
You have been given the final design approved by the tender process and hired to implement that design. In this submission you should take the design given and implement it in Packet Tracer. → Where there is ambiguity, you are encouraged to use your best judgement. ← The design includes several VLANs, a Routing Layer 3 switch and 2 routers to external networks. There is a Wireless VLAN that all wireless access points and the VPN server connect to.
NOTE on using your best judgement:
There ARE ERRORS in this physical topology! Correcting these errors in some fashion demonstrates that you
- understand the concepts in enough detail to see the error and
- know what options exist in correcting these errors.
NOTE on needing to do research:
You WILL need to do some additional research to complete this assignment! Part of University assessments is about encouraging you to research topics. In other units you may be given a topic to research and then write a report or academic paper on the subject. In this unit you are still required to do some research (into Layer 3 switches) but you will instead be required to APPLY the result of that research directly.
Remember, this is an implementation. Transferring logical concepts into practical application needs to be displayed, physical implementation of logical processes such as subnetting are important. You have been given the Network range of 10.0.0.0/21 to work with.
