  • A private network provides a high-speed delivery of voice and data among the three offices.
  • The network operation is not affected by a link breakdown.

 

C. Task

You are a System Engineer of a computer and networking company, and your task is to design a network infrastructure to satisfy the above requirements of the bank. With the aid of a diagram, elaborate your design which should specify the computer facilities, cabling, network devices, data rate, network architectures, etc. There are no absolutely correct solutions, but you need to justify every implementation with good reasoning.
