Instructions

Based on the network that you build on the prework:

intro network

You are a network consultant and have been hired to improve the network architecture of a small company. The company currently has a network that has grown organically over time and is experiencing performance and security issues. Your task is to assess the current situation and propose improvements. You have the following information:

The company has the following requirements

  • The network should have the capacity to grow up to 100 devices.
  • The network should be divided into sub-networks for the Marketing, Technology and Accounting departments.
  • The network capacity for each department is as follows:
    • Marketing: 30 devices
    • Technology: 40 devices
    • Accounting: 15 devices
    • The remaining capacity is reserved for future growth.
  • Each subnet should have its own private server. Only the Technology department's server should be available to all networks.

Questions and Challenges:

  1. Assessment of the Current Situation:
    • What is the extent of the current network?
    • What problems can be expected if there are no improves to the company's network?
  2. Network Topology:
    • What network topology would you use for this company?
    • How should devices and servers be connected?
  3. Network equipment:
    • What type of network devices are needed (routers, switches, firewalls, etc.)?
    • What technical specifications must these devices meet?
  4. Network Security:
    • What are the security measures required to protect the network?
    • How should security devices, such as firewall, be configured?
  5. Network Management:
    • How will network devices be managed and monitored?
    • What policies should be implemented in terms of personnel to have a secure network?
    • Will a network management system (NMS) or monitoring tools be implemented?
  6. Implementation Plan:
    • What is the implementation schedule for the proposed enhancements?
    • How will these changes be communicated to employees?
  7. Ongoing Maintenance:
    • What steps will be taken to ensure ongoing network maintenance and upgrades?
    • Will security policies and incident response procedures be established?
  8. Evaluation of Success:
    • How will the success of the enhancements be measured? What metrics will be used to evaluate network performance and security after implementation?

⚠️ Remember: There are no wrong answers in terms of network topologies and devices, try to make the network as optimal as possible.
