ABC Is an American institute of technology which has recently moved to Canberra .ABC has developed
two mid-size campuses where both are located in Canberra. The distance between the two campuses
is 1.5 km. the first campus dimension is 1200 meters length and 700 meters width. The second campus
dimension is 900 meters length and 400 meters width. The first campus has four blocks (buildings) for
three colleges (IT, Physics and Chemistry) in addition to a library .The second campus has three blocks
for the administration office, business colleges and a library.
It is understood that the ABC would like to stay in use of the latest networking technology. All users
are required to be able to use wired and wireless devices .
It understood as well that both campuses will be required to be connected using any desired high
performance, less overhead and secure technology in addition to users will be able to use wireless
technology indoor and outdoor within the dimensions of each campus.
ABC would like you to develop a Network proposal (report) which can address the mentioned
requirements and concerns
Report Contents
1. Proposal description and requirements
2. Network design analysis
a. Students are required to draw the campuses floor mapping which include buildings , pin
on it where routers, switches , servers , links are located.
3. Hardware and software analysis
a. Students are required to search for devices , links and provide a list of brands, models,
technical specification and images for each.
b. List of Software may be used .
4. Relate these devices to the OSI layers , which layer are located , highlight each device
functions , each layer functions
5. The desired type of link(s) between campus .justify your choice.
6. References IEEE ( minimum 5 different resources )
– Student can use any type of drawing software to draw the campus floor mapping.
– Use your assumption to draw buildings ( blocks) dimensions.
