Computer Science

You will select an organization, and apply your research to the analysis and development of a network design that would be appropriate for the organization and the needs that it has for its network. Additional information and the deliverables for each Individual Project will be provided in the assignment description for the project. This is the course’s Key Assignment that you will make contributions to each week.

Project Selection:

The first step will be to select an organization as the target for your network design and architecture proposal document. This organization will be used as the basis for each of the assignments throughout the course and should conform to the following guidelines:

· Nontrivial: The selected organization should be large enough to allow reasonable exercise of the network design process.

· Domain Knowledge: You should be familiar enough with the organization to allow for focus on the project’s tasks without the significant time required for domain education.

· Accessibility: You should have good access to the people and other information related to the organization because this will be an important part of the process.

The selected organization may already have a distributed network in place, but it can still be used as the basis for the projects in this course.

The selected organization must have a need for some kind of distributed network computing as part of their operations. Therefore, you may identify a hypothetical organization that meets these requirements. Any necessary assumptions may be made to fulfill the requirements of organization selection process.

Select an existing organization, or identify a hypothetical organization that fits these requirements, and submit your proposal to your instructor before proceeding with the assignments in the course. Approval should be sought within the first several days of the course. Your instructor will tell you how to submit this proposal and what notification will be given for project approval.

Assignment:

For the assignments in this course, you will not be implementing a distributed network, but you will be developing a comprehensive network design and architecture proposal document. Your first task in this process will be to select an organization or identify a hypothetical organization to use as the basis of your project. You will also create the shell document for the final project deliverable that you will be working on during each unit. As you proceed through each project phase, you will add content to each section of the final document to gradually complete the final project deliverable. Appropriate research should be conducted to support the development of your proposal document, and assumptions may be made when necessary.

The project deliverables are as follows:

· Submit the organization proposal to your instructor for approval.

· Submit the network design and architecture proposal document shell

· Use Word

· Title page

· Course number and name

· Project name

· Student name

· Date

· Table of contents

· Use autogenerated TOC

· Separate page

· Maximum of 3 levels deep

· Be sure to update the fields of the TOC so it is up-to-date before submitting your project.

· Section headings (create each heading on a new page with TBD as content except for sections listed under new content below)

· Project Outline

· Distributed Network Requirements Analysis

· Communication Protocols Analysis and Recommendations

· Network Traffic Analysis and Recommendations

· Network Design and Architecture

· Future Needs Analysis and Recommendations

PART I (4 pages)

Project outline and requirements

· Brief description of the organization (can be hypothetical) where the network will be implemented

· Include company size, location(s), and other pertinent information.

· Summary of the benefits that the company would realize through distributed networking

· Material can be taken from the approved proposal that was submitted to the instructor.

· Ensure that this project is approved by the instructor.

Distributed network requirements analysis

· Describe at least 5 major areas of functionality needed by the organization that can be provided through distributed networking.

· For each area of functionality, include information to identify capacity and performance requirements.

· Identify connectivity and security requirements for the proposed network.

· Include any other requirements that will affect your design and architecture, such as the use of existing network infrastructure, budget limitations, existing applications and operating systems, and so forth.

Name the document yourname_CS635_IP1.doc.

PART II (3 pages)

The Communication Protocols Analysis and Recommendations section should include the following:

Analysis:

· For each of the requirements identified in the Requirements Analysis section of the previously created proposal, list and describe the communication protocol(s) that are necessary to support the requirement.

· Include a description of which parts of the network and network applications would utilize the protocol(s).

Recommendations:

· Based on the analysis that was performed in the previous step, prepare a recommendation for protocol(s) to use with the network.

· Justify the selection of these protocol(s) by using a description of the operational characteristics that best match the analysis results.

Be sure to update your table of contents before submission.

Name the document yourname_CS635_IP2.doc.

PART III (3 pages)

Update the network design and architecture proposal document title page with new date and project name.

Update the previously completed sections based on instructor feedback.

Network Traffic Analysis and Recommendations section:

Analysis:

· Summarize each of the major uses of the distributed network.

· For each use, identify the traffic estimates.

· Include an analysis of peak traffic times and levels.

· Identify any other issues that will produce congestion on the network.

Recommendations:

· Based on the analysis that you performed in the previous step, prepare a recommendation of the software and infrastructure that would be required to handle the projected traffic.

· Offer recommendations for software that can be used to manage potential network congestion, and describe how the software works.

Update your table of contents before submission.

PART IV (3 pages)

Update the network design and architecture proposal document’s title page with new date and project name.

Update the previously completed sections based on instructor feedback.

The Network Design and Architecture section should include the following:

Infrastructure:

· Describe the network architecture that is suitable for this distributed network.

· Include at least 1 visual model of the system that identifies the major components.

· Justify the physical design of the system with reference to the requirements established in previous sections of the proposal.

· Summarize the estimated cost of the network infrastructure.

Software:

· Describe the software required for the network.

· Include the operating systems and other software applications that are required to meet the functional and operational requirements established in previous sections of the proposal.

· Summarize the estimated cost of the network software.

Name the document yourname_CS635_IP4.doc.

PART V (3 pages)

Update the network design and architecture proposal title page with new date and project name.

Update the previously completed sections based on instructor feedback.

The Future Needs Analysis and Recommendations section should include the following:

· Research current and future trends in distributed networking.

· Summarize at least three potential changes in distributed networking that might affect your company.

· Provide a modified design and architecture, and discuss the changes from the original design proposal that would be required to support the new requirements.

Network design and architecture proposal

· Review the entire document for any changes and improvements you would like to make.

· Ensure this final version of the plan is sufficiently detailed to allow the organization to confidently move forward with a distributed network implementation that is based on your recommendations.

Any previous instructor feedback should be addressed with appropriate changes.
