Final Project: WAN Design
This WAN design is being created for Acme Manufacturing. Acme Manufacturing is in need of a new WAN design that is capable of managing their day to day business functions as well as having the ability to expand as the company grows. They are requesting the use of all new equipment. Other specifications that they wish to include are a system capable of grouping multiple departments logically on the network. They presently have their headquarters located in Atlanta Georgia along with their Engineering plant. They have distribution offices in Chicago, Phoenix and New York and have recently acquired a facility in China.
The primary connection to headquarters from the various sites will be done through an intranet, except for China which will have to use a satellite link via the internet. Each facility will have access to the other facilities, with the exception of China, in order to be able to communicate distribution center needs as well as any manufacturing and engineering issues that may come up. Headquarters and the engineering plant will be the only ones that will have a need to be able to connect with China.
The type of lines used for connection will also vary depending on the location. Within each location Ethernet wiring can handle the amount of data flow with reasonable integrity within the building structure. The lines that are used to connect the servers to the internet, with the exception of China, should use fiber optic cabling. I chose fiber optic due to the speed at which information and data can travel, with little or no loss of data in the process (Case & Stallings, 2013), Chapter 12. The plant in China will need to communicate with headquarters via satellite

...Executive Summary This document describes the security plan for a WAN (wide area network) that has been setup for an organization to work in an efficient manner. The WAN connects many different locations scattered across a wide area. The WAN is an important feature of the organization and has to play an important role in its working. Huge amount of information is transferred everyday and is crucial for the organization. A network crash due to any reason may cause a huge loss to the organization. Also any intrusion in the network may allow somebody to get hold of private and confidential information about the company. Hence, the security of the network is very crucial to the organization and its business. The goals of this security plan are to ensure the complete security of the network. This would include physical security, network security and access control systems. Physical security is about keeping the network equipments safe from being physically damaged, tampered with or from being stolen. Network security is about keeping the information safe over the network while transmission.

...WAN Design Company Overview The plan under displays the main procedures involved in developing a WAN for Acme Production. The company’s six different buildings in six different places need to be networked jointly. There is a necessity of communication between all the distant places and the head office building. Two of the headquarters are situated in Atlanta, Georgia. In these two building located across the street from one another, one of these is the head office building and the other is the engineering building. Logical Network Setup and Locations Interconnection A LAN setup having routers and Ethernet wires will be the selection. This is a sensible selection since the speeds of the network will be significantly greater and consequently will lead to a reduced amount of expense. Other three places are the distribution offices that are situated in Chicago, Phoenix, and New York. Satellite communication will be the selected form of link with the head office building. The final division is the plant facility that is situated in China. For this, developing satellite as well will be utilized to interact to the headquarters network. On an overall note, all places must be interconnected that allows function flow between each other. This lets simple interaction to be achieved for specific requirements, for orders and manufacturing. Moreover, it reduces substandard interaction that happens in delivering messages. The network topology utilized for Acme’s WAN must be a star......

As are the hardware and software needed to create and secure the networks. Each location will be set up with its own Wireless local area connection and they will all utilize the Internet to provide a Wide Area connection for the company as a whole. LAN, WAN and Wireless technologies Local Area Networks, or LANs, are a grouping of computers networked together in a generally small geographic area. LAN technology refers to the hardware and software used to create a local area network. The most common wired methods are Ethernet and Token Ring, and WLAN technologies using IEEE 802.11. WAN or Wide Area Network technologies include ATM. TCP/IP, and Frame Relay to connect and transfer data across large distances. Using a cable such as an Ethernet cable computers on a LAN are required to share the network when passing data packets back and forth. Before sending data across the network each computer checks the line for other transmissions. If the line is clear the computer sends the data, if not the computer waits. This method is called CSMA/CD. Wireless LANs or WLANs use RF signals to transmit data across the network. Every computer on a wireless local area network share the same frequency and take turns sending data just like using a cable. Wireless LANs use CSMA/CA to check for an open line of communication to it......

Currently, broadband is one of the best options to enjoy as a data rate much higher than what happens with access via dial-up. In addition, broadband also maintains a permanent Internet access without interrupting the telephone line and resorting to external modems. Cuando hablamos de ancho de banda nos referimos a la velocidad y capacidad de la transmisión de datos en una red. Dicho dato depende tanto del tipo de estructura que presenta la red como los dispositivos que soportan y emiten la señal. En el mercado existen varias tarifas, fijas las cuales brindan un servicio básico, limitado, y las dial up o Premium, las cuales ofrecen una conexión más rápida y estable a cierta red. El funcionamiento  de la banda ancha se basa en la utilización de tecnologías DSL y de cable módems. Sin embargo, en la actualidad, la tecnología WiFi, que no necesita cableado, está creciendo más y más, especialmente para suplir a aquellos usuarios que viven en áreas sin las tecnologías o capacidades necesarias para establecer complejos sistemas de cable módem.

A Generic Wan

...A generic wide area network uses the following components: Component | Description | WAN cloud | The WAN cloud is the collection of equipment that makes up the WAN network. The WAN cloud is owned and maintained by large telecommunications companies. It is represented as a cloud because the physical structure varies, and different networks with common connection points may overlap. Few people thoroughly understand where data goes as it is switched through the "cloud." What is important is that data goes in, travels through the line, and arrives at its destination. | Central Office (CO) | The central office is a switching facility connected to the WAN, and is the nearest point of presence for the WAN provider. It provides WAN-cloud entry and exit points. | Local loop | The local loop is the cable that extends from the central office to the customer location. The local loop is owned and maintained by the WAN service provider. Typically, it is UTP, but it can also be one or a combination of UTP, fiber optic, or other media. The local loop is often referred to as the "last mile" because it represents the last portion of the WAN up to the customer premises. | Demarcation point (demarc) | When you contract with a local exchange carrier (LEC) for data or telephone services, they install a physical cable and a termination jack onto your premises. The demarcation point is the line that marks the boundary between the telco equipment and the private network or telephone......

I am going to give you some ideas and concepts that you can use to alter the outcome of said project. I am not saying that my ways are the best ways to be successful in your project management needs. I am going to communicate what has worked for me in the areas of Quality, Time and Cost. In project management there is something that we use called “The Project Management Triangle”? It uses these three key variables as the guidelines in building your projects success. I once overheard a client at my job telling someone that they can have the project done fast, good and then there is cheap. You have to pick two points of the triangle that you want. You can never have all three. I do not believe this philosophy when it comes to success in the business field; I think that you can have all three. When breaking down a project triangle let me give you some background. Fast usually refers to the timeline in getting the job done that has been asked. When you talk about Good, this refers to the quality that you will receive and cheap refers to the cost or resources throughout the project. I am going to review all three points of the triangle, as well as the importance of quality. In addition, I......

Acme's Wan Design

...WAN Design Jason Johnson University of Phoenix: IT/242 October 1, 2014 Acme’s WAN Design With Acme’s headquarter located in Atlanta, Georgia and quickly expanding to China and then across the United States, Acme Manufacturing is a top tier company that in turn needs a top tier WAN network to help tie together it’s various locations. Along with Acme’s many other needs they also want to install a telecommunications technology like PBX or VoIP to facilitate interoffice communication. Acme Manufacturing wants to build its network on the principles of security and usability. The following is an outline of the recommendations for their WAN implementation for this company. Network Design 1. Topology The first consideration for Acme’s new network is the topology to be used. The Atlanta office serves as Acme’s headquarters and because the company is quickly expanding across the globe I believe that the star topology is the most suited for their needs. Star networks are easily expanded upon and doing so does not interrupt the other locations. Centralized administration is a strong selling point for this topology as well. A powerful mainframe computer and an array of Cisco Catalyst switches will serve as the network’s hub. Figure 1 below represents the proposed WAN topology: Figure 1- Proposed Acme WAN topology Figure 1- Proposed Acme WAN topology ATL (HQ) T1 T1 T1 PHX CHI CHINA NY ATL (HQ) T1 T1 T1 PHX CHI CHINA NY 2.

Also cisco routers, modems and of course our firewall by Barracuda. Our network structure design goes as follows; we will be using cloud based systems along with VPN remote server with fiber optic cabling and high speed NIC. Servers will be fileshare to allow different locations to pull necessary files. For the phone system we will use VOIP phones to allow all locations to be connected on the same system to allow call transfer. We will then use Barracuda systems for security and backups. We will then use Active directory, to create group policies and add restrictions per site. The 5 main sites will have Servers that will allow additional locations to connect through VPN. Each server will being using barracuda security along with backup systems to secure information. Barracuda will provide Email security Web security Network security Web application security data protection and file sync & share, Barracuda will also provide VOIP services.

...network is pretty secure. The design for this network begins by designing the local network, at each of the provided locations, and then connecting all the offices together in an effective Wide Area Network (WAN) Design. The network design will include both voice and data sharing. Microsoft Project will be used as a tool to organize and manage the complete project, and it will include budget and schedule. We also must remember that the main design centers are in San Francisco, Detroit, Paris, Tokyo, and Sao Paulo, with Corporate Headquarters lodged in San Francisco. The remaining offices are used as sales offices. Consider the company to operate on a 24 hours a day and 7 days a week basis, because it is global. It has been said, that with the advent of globalization, WAN has become a major artery for communication between remote offices and customers in any corner of the globe. Additionally, with data center consolidation, applications are moving to centralized data centers and clouds. We can also take advantage of virtualization within the centralized data center. WAN plays an even more critical role, because ABC survival is dependent on the availability and performance of the network. In the past reliable connectively was predicated upon performance with the utilization of private WAN using Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) or leased line service. This norm is very expensive and the least cost effective for ABC. It was basically impossible to have WAN transport in......

...Local are networks (LAN) is a computer network covering a small geographic area, like a home, office, school, or group of buildings. Has a High speed (1000 mbps) Tends to use certain connectivity technologies, primarily Ethernet and Token Ring. LANs tend to have fewer problems associated with them, as there are smaller numbers of systems to deal with. Wide area network (WAN) is a computer network that covers a broad area. It does have slower speeds of about 150 mbps. WANs tend to use technologies like MPLS, ATM, Frame Relay and X.25 for connectivity over longer distances Differences between (LAN) & (WAN) (LAN) is typically owned and managed by a single company or organization. LAN also experiences fewer data transmission errors and overall fewer problems as a whole as opposed to WAN. WAN has a high cost maintenance and lower bandwidth. In conclusion the major differences are going to be cost, efficiency and coverage Describe common physical topologies and a logical topology : Physical topology refers to how the network is wired it can be either a ring topology where all the hosts are connected together or a bus topology where there is a network medium and each host connects to that medium by wire. A logical topology in the other hand governs how the network is going to work. For example all the hosts in the network are connected through a central connecting point that’s the physical topology however the way the protocols and hardware are designed to......

...Company Overview In this plan, I will describe the process of creating a WAN for ACME Manufacturing. ACME Manufacturing has six buildings in different locations that need to be on the same network. Headquarters and the other remote locations of ACME Manufacturing share the need for constant communication with each other. Atlanta, Georgia, is the home of ACME manufacturing where they have another building across the street, their engineering facility. The other locations are in Phoenix, Chicago, New York, and China. Network Setup and Connections The LAN setup in Atlanta for the headquarters and engineering buildings will use a logical choice of routers and Ethernet cables. Using routers and Ethernet cables will provide speedy data transfer rates and reliability without costing ACME manufacturing exuberant amount money. The three distribution locations in Phoenix, Chicago, and New York will use satellite connections to their headquarters in Atlanta. The last connection is the manufacturing plant in China wills also use a satellite connection to connect to headquarters back in the United States. After to some thought of what topology to use, a star topology looks to be the best choice for ACME manufacturing. (See Figure 1) All locations will connect with headquarters by either satellite or T1. Headquarters as the central location of the WAN will benefit the network administrator by giving him or her more control of the network. ACME manufacturing......
