Network System Proposal
Through much research and thought we have put together a networking system that we felt will fulfill all of your networking needs, now and for the future. We have prepared this proposal with the ideology of: “Look at what your needs are now but Design and Plan for the Future.” With that in mind we have come up with a system that should far exceed your expectations with cost still in mind. Initially you asked for us to allow for a 10% expansion over the next year that was a goal that was easily achieved. In fact with the equipment that we chose we were actually able to increase that number to almost 80%. We feel that after looking over your business plans that this is an achievable goal on your part, therefore we designed the system to allow for such scalability.
When it comes to the topology of a network system there are several different types to choose from, first you have the most basic which is the bus line system, then there is the star topology, the token ring (originally designed by and for IBM systems), and finally there is the mesh topology. There are also several different hybrid systems which incorporate one or more of the systems mentioned above. For you though we decided to stick with a star topology which allows for high security, minimal if any system down time and, complete expandability. With this particular design we have allowed you and your systems administrators to enjoy an easily managed, high speed network. The star topology that we have designed uses several multi-layer switches that work on levels 1, 2, and 3 of the OSI model. All linked together creating aggregated links so that if one were to fail the others still allow for communication through out the entire system, with little or no effect on network speed. This topology will also allow your systems administrators to be able to efficiently locate the problem area by easily tracing network traffic too and from the switch(s).
