Each Floor LAN would be connected to a central (primary) Star Ethernet LAN within the server room where each of the five server would be connected. This would create a LAN (Extended Star ) topology.
All databases and central files will be stored on the server. Software will be installed on each workstation to support the creating and editing of the central files (creating a client-server model).

Justification: Since there is an influx of internet business, a secured router on each floor would provide the network administrator with a central location to complete the security administration while retain the ability to connect to the central servers on the primary hub. Additionally, a secured hub would provide functionality to encrypt data between the primary hub and each hub on each floor. This would provide additional security to business sensitive data.
Responses to questions:
● What type of topology should be used in this network? Enhanced Star
● Will the network be peer to peer or server based? No
● How many computers will be attached to the network? Minimum of

    Hybrid client- A hybrid client is a mixture of the above two client models. Similar to a fat client, it processes locally, but relies on the server for storing persistent data.

    Fred Jones, a distant relative of yours and president of Deals-R-Us Brokers (DRUB), has come to you for advice. DRUB is a small brokerage house that enables its clients to buy and sell stocks over the Internet, as well as place traditional orders by phone or fax. DRUB has just decided to offer a set of stock analysis tools that will help its clients more easily pick winning stocks, or so Fred tells you. Fred’s information systems department has presented him with two alternatives for developing the new tools. The first alternative will have a special tool developed in C++ that clients will download onto their computers to run. The tool will communicate with the DRUB server to select data to analyze. The second alternative will have the C++ program running on the server; the client will use his or her browser to interact with the server.…

Using a star topology throughout the building with the servers in each classroom connected to the server room on the respective floor. Equipment used to build the network will consist of servers, routers, hubs and computers. There will be a physical firewall installed on each server and an IDS (Snort) for the network as well as AVG firewall and virus scanner.…

    The network IP addressing scheme for the Frederick MD building should be designed to ease network management. A well thought out network subnet design enables administrators to quickly locate computers by IP address by building floor and room, and whether the computer is a server, a student computer, staff computer or instructor’s computer. A proper subnet design will also minimize broadcast traffic that decreases network performance, by reducing the total number of computers allowed in each broadcast domain. A proper subnet design will also provide for efficient use of IP addresses by including only the number of IP addresses in each subnet necessary to support current computers plus a few additional IP addresses for immediate expansion when required. To differentiate subnets by IP address, student subnets start with a “1” in the third octet, staff subnets start with a “2” in the third octet where “10” in the second and third digits designates the location to be floor 1, “12” designates the location to be floors 1 and 2, “10” designates the location to be floor 1, “20” designates the location to be floor 2, and a second digit of “4” designates office staff and a second digit of “5” designates Admissions staff. The broadcast and network numbers have been removed from the IP address ranges below.…

The 1000Base-T standard supports data transfer rates up to 1000 Mbps, or one gigabyte per second, and is used in the non-clinical areas of the hospital. PFCH is employing a CAT 6 cable infrastructure for these administrative areas. The clinical areas use the 1000Base-F standard, which is also a 1000 Mbps specification for Ethernet communications over optical fibers. PFCH is currently using single mode optical fiber cable infrastructure for its clinical areas.…
