IP Subnet Design Project
UMUC, CMIT 350, Instructor: Steven Tharp
Overview
Each student will create a detailed, unified technical design of network services given the
scenario. The submission will be in a written format with a length of at least 1000 words
(not counting diagrams, quoted passages, or other attachments) and with at least one
detailed diagram created by the student. The assignment is meant for students to enhance
their mastery of the material and to provide a creative and realistic way in which to apply
knowledge from this course.
Scenario
You are a consultant being brought in by XUMUC to assist with its merger with another
company.
Background
XUMUC has the WAN links in place to the new locations in the Houston Region.
XUMUC currently has 2 other Regions San Francisco and Denver. Originally, XUMUC
was only in one region (San Francisco). The previous consultant did a poor job with the
integration resulting in a poor IP address scheme as a result routing tables at the
summarization points and at the San Francisco Campus are very large.
In addition, no VLAN structure was developed to isolate broadcast traffic. There are 4
main departments in XUMC: sales, finance, human resources, and research and
development. Also, there has been some concern that the WAN transport was not able
to accommodate the network traffic. Also, no Network/Wireless Security was
implemented on the WAN portion or within each Office. Finally, all addresses in the
network are statically assigned resulting in high administration overhead when changes
are made. XUMC would like this changed to lower administrative overhead.
