Assessment item 2
Networking Fundamentals
Value: 15%
Due Date: 28-Dec-2018
Return Date: 21-Jan-2019
Submission method options: Alternative submission method
Task
Phase 1
Business.com is a software development company with two branches spread over the Western
Sydney region. The company’s local area network (LAN) is captured in the topology below:
Head Quarter network has 100 network devices including all computers, printers and other
devices. Branch A and B subsequently have 30 and 20 devices, respectively. Recently, the
company has been assigned with a new space of IP addressing and the whole network has to
be re-addressed.
Task 1
You are contracted by the company to help with the IP address planning. The following is the
new IP address space:
IPv4 network: 203.2.XY.0
where XY is the last 2 digits of your student ID
Your task is to plan and document
An IPv4 address plan for the LAN
You are expected to provide an efficient and optimum address allocation solution with the
following details:
1. IP address requirement for each sub-network
2. IP address allocation plan for each network/sub-network including network address, subnet
mask, broadcast address, default gateway address and valid host address range.
3. IP address allocation plan for key network device and interfaces e.g., servers, printers,
router interfaces, etc.
Phase 2
Business.com has expanded and it has decided to redevelop the company existing LAN to
achieve the company’s following business and technical goals.
The Business goals:
• Improved communications, wireless, VoIP, and others
• Protect company information
Technical goals:
• Scalability – company plans to increase employee by 15% in next 12 months.
• Accessibility– Employees are able to access to company resources from both company
and home (different servers)
• Performance – network performance must be high
• Security – protection of company information and other IT assets
• Flexibility- network should be flexible enough to create logical grouping as required.
• Availability – wireless network access is available in all employees as well as some
outdoor areas for software developers and employees
You are contracted by the company to help with the network redevelopment.
The new company structure
The company has 5 departments: Software Development, Solution Design, Customer Support,
Sales and Finance detailed as follow:                                                                                                    X is the Last digit of your student ID
Business.com is located in a 5-stories building. The company plans to put each department on
a separate floor. However, there is also an option to have the software development to occupy
two floors while other departments will share the other three. The network, therefore, should
be flexible enough to meet either option.
Task 2
Your task in this part is to propose and document
1. The requirements for the company local area network (LAN)
2. A logical design for the LAN
3. An updated IP address plan for the LAN according to the proposed design

Value: 30%
Due Date: 20-Jan-2019
Return Date: Not returned
Length: 500-700 words
Submission method options: Interact2 Discussion Board
Task
Task 1 (Research)
In this assessment, you are required to research a range of options/methods that can be used
for network designing in Assessment 2. Based on your research you are required to clearly list
your views on pros and cons of each available option for the completion of Assessment 2 and
select an option that you will use to complete that assessment [5 marks].
Task 2 – Setting up a Network
You are required to set up a network consisting of PCs, routers, switches and servers. You need
to configure routing between routers. The routers will have multiple network interfaces. The
PCs (clients) will be connected to switches and switches to the router’s interfaces and.
Client(s) <–> Switch <–> Router <–> Router <–> Switch <–> Server(s)
Use ONLY the IP address ranges you designed for this network in assessment 2.
Perform the following activities and support your workings with screenshots [5 marks]:
1. Configure the PCs, Server and Router interfaces with appropriate network addressing;
2. Configure RIP or static routing on the routers;
3. On the client ping the client’s own network interfaces, then the local router gateway
interfaces, then the remote router interfaces, then the servers;
4. Use the traceroute command from the client to the server. Include results of the traceroute
in your submission.
Task 3 – Configuring Network Services
Using the same network topology that you have setup in Task 1, perform the following
additional activities [5 marks]:
1.DHCP: Configure DHCP servers and show that the client PC has successfully received IP
Addresses and other network parameters (default router, netmask, DNS) using DHCP;
2.WEB Server: Configure WEBs server on the dedicated machines in their specified networks,
with URL as servername.yourname.class
3.DNS: Configure DNS Servers on the server device and demonstrate that forward and reverse
DNS are working from the client PC; test DNS Server by browsing servername.yourname.class
from client PC, DNS must resolve this URL to IP address of WEB Server
4.Firewall: Configure traffic filtering on the web servers to block TCP traffic between one of
the client PCs and WEB Servers, and provide evidence of such traffic filtering.
A series of screenshots with commentary on each of the required tasks is to be submitted. The
submission must include a comprehensive explanation of each task and all the commands
used along with the output (or final result) in report format.
