IT INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT: DESIGNING WAN NETWORKS ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS

Project Background

Reference Figure 1.  Global Care Hospital is a network of four large hospitals in the U.S. You have recently purchased the organization, naming it [Your Firstname Lastname] Global Hospital.  Please refer to the hospital as “place your name here” Global Hospital.  

 

Figure 1. Global Hospital Network Design 

Jane Doe Global Hospital owns a network of hospitals supported by four (4) office buildings. Their original design, depicted in Figure 1, was categorized as a medium-size network for 200 to 1,000 devices.  They have well surpassed this and added new services in telemedicine.  In addition, it has several flaws.  You, as their senior network engineer, are tasked with the job of a complete re-design.  This design must support a large-size network for over 1,000 devices, address the current design flaws per figure 1, and meet the future needs of a globally capable hospital IT infrastructure.  *Note, each of the office buildings in Figure 1 also contains additional routers, switches, workstations, and servers that would support a typical hospital office building of this hospital size.  Include these devices to meet the rubric requirements as you design the detailed version of this network. Regardless, only one workstation is needed per network switch to show working functionality.

 

OVERVIEW 

In this project, you will study performance improvements in a congested, wired WAN environment that can be solved to varying degrees by a new IT infrastructure design and fully functional implementation in Cisco Packet Tracer.  

 

INSTRUCTIONS 

Project Requirements

Take screenshots demonstrating your network, servers, configurations, and protocols properly functioning in the new design.  Screenshots must include a unique piece of information identifying the student’s computer along with a proper operating system date/time.  Submit these as appendices in the Word document.

Submit a working Packet Tracer lab, typically this file has a .pkt file extension.

o This will include the fully operational new IT infrastructure design

o All devices in the lab must be named with your first name and last name

Example: Jane_Doe_Router_1

o All hardware and software should be configured properly and should be able to communicate securely using optimized networking designs, configurations, and protocols

Packet Tracer IT Infrastructure Re-Design Requirements

o You must start with a blank/new Packet Tracer file, existing labs or modified labs of existing solutions will receive a zero without exception

o Include the existing hospital network design but optimized/improved

LANs must function using the OSPF protocol

Buildings 1 and 3 must connect to buildings 2 and 4 using a properly selected and configured WAN protocol

o Design a large-size network for over 1,000+ devices 

An appropriate WAN design supported by research is necessary

Add appropriate routers and switches to support this new design

Design and configure at least one appropriate networking protocol, IPv4 or IPv6

Design IP addressing that will scale to over 1,000 devices

Use proper network address translation (NAT) 

o Add appropriate security into the design, at least one (1) significant improvement
