SBM4104 IT Infrastructure

Assessment Details:

This assessment is designed to assess students’ technical skills in planning and configuring a computer network. In addition, it develops student skills in planning and finding IT infrastructures solution that suit enterprise requirements.

Assume you are working as an IT professional at the IT department for ABC company, you have been assign the task of analysing the current network design and propose new network configuration for the network shown in Figure 1.

Network design for ABC company

For the network diagram in Figure 1:

  • NET-A: 10.10.1XY.0/24
  • NET-B: 172.16.1XY.0/24
  • NET-C: 192.168.1XY.0/24 where X, and Y are the last two digits of the student ID of one of the group members.

[For example, if the student ID is 201701234 then XY=34 and NET-A: 10.10.134.0/24, NET-B: 172.16.134.0/24 and NET-C: 192.168.134.0/24]
