Assignment Requirements
Now it is time for you to put your networking knowledge to work. Read through the Network Design: Kamazon.kom Network Upgrade information and make sure you understand the customer’s requirements. Your instructor will act as Kamazon’s representative, so if you have questions or need clarification on any part of the bid requirements, be sure to ask him/her.

Notice the list of deliverables toward the end of the information. Part 1 includes deliverables 1-4.

Required Resources
Computer with drawing, word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation software Internet access
Printer

Submission Requirements:
Deliverables 1, 2, 3, and 4 will be due in Unit 10 (unless otherwise noted by your instructor). See the specific requirements for these deliverables in the following bid information.

Customer Requirements:
Your company is bidding on performing the network upgrade for Kamazon.kom, a Web retailer of ink books, audio books, and gourmet coffees and teas based in Wichita, Kansas. Kamazon wants to upgrade its existing 10Mbps LAN to at least 1Gbps. The only part of the company that has already been upgraded is the Web Sales & Support department. It was upgraded last year to 1Gbps fiber to all the servers that support the company’s growing business. Kamazon has left it up to bidders to decide whether to use wired or wireless devices and installations in the upgrade.

Kamazon has not stipulated any budget for this project, but it will look closely at all the bids that are submitted for costs, so expenses for equipment, labor, and other areas of the project are important. Kamazon wants to be assured that whoever does its upgrade uses existing networking standards, so when the network needs to be upgraded again, it will be a smooth process. It also wants to make sure that at least 10% overage is included in the bid for future proofing.

Besides needing a physical network upgrade, Kamazon also needs a logical upgrade. Its present use of its private IP address scheme is not working very well. At this time, the company is using several class C private addresses (192.168.x.x). They have requested the bidders to include a section in their bids outlining a new subnetting design that divides the company’s users into manageable, logical, and useful units.

Each department needs its own network/subnet.
The management offices are located in an area of the building that has been designated a historic landmark, so it cannot be changed (no holes drilled in the walls or floors for cable drops). All other departments are located on floors that are entirely occupied by Kamazon. There are no permanent walls, and drop ceilings have been installed on these floors, so there are sufficient areas for cables to be installed without damaging any existing structures. Existing hubs need to be replaced with LAN switches.

The company uses a national company as its WAN provider and pays for sufficient bandwidth to support its Web presence, so you do not have to include any WAN upgrades as part of your bid.

Building Layout:
See the attached building plan. Each floor is 100 feet wide by 100 feet long. Only Floor 1 has any interior walls; the other floors are open spaces (except where the elevators and stairs are located). Restrooms are located beside the elevators and stairs.

Course Objectives and Learning Outcomes
Identify the major needs and major stakeholders for computer networks and network applications. Compare and contrast the OSI and TCP/IP models and their applications to actual networks. Explain the functionality and use of typical network protocols. Differentiate among major types of LAN and WAN technologies and specifications and determine how each is used in a data network.

Use network tools to monitor protocols and traffic characteristics. Assess a typical group of devices networked to another group of devices through the Internet, identifying and explaining all major components and their respective functions. Show competency in all outcomes for this course.

Assignment Requirements
Now it is time for you to put your networking knowledge to work. Read through
the Network Design: Kamazon.kom Network Upgrade information presented in the Unit 9 Research 1: Network Design, Part 1 assignment. Remember that you are preparing your bid for your customer, Kamazon.kom. Your instructor is acting as Kamazon’s representative, so if you have questions or need clarification on any part of the bid requirements, be sure to ask him/her.

Notice the list of deliverables toward the end of the information. Part 2 includes Deliverables 5 and 6.

Required Resources
Computer with drawing, word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation software Internet access
Printer

Submission Requirements:
Deliverables 5 and 6 (Part 2) will be due in Unit 11 (unless otherwise noted by your instructor).
