Network Infrastructure

This assignment consists of two (2) sections: an infrastructure document and a revised project plan.

You must submit both sections as separate files for the completion of this assignment. Label each file name according to the section of the assignment it is written for. Additionally, you may create and / or assume all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment.

With the parameters set forth at the onset of the project, present the infrastructure and security policy that will support the expected development and growth of the organization. The network solution that is chosen should support the conceived information system and allow for scalability.

The network infrastructure will support organizational operations; therefore, a pictorial view of workstations, servers, routers, bridges, gateways, and access points should be used. Since the company will be merging with a multinational company, virtualization and cloud technology should be taken into consideration.

In addition, access paths for Internet access should be depicted. A narrative should be included to explain all the nodes of the network and the rationale for the design. Lastly, using the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA) Triangle, define the organizational security policy.

Section 1: Infrastructure Document
Write a five to ten (5-10) page infrastructure document in which you:
  • Identify possible network infrastructure vulnerabilities.
  • Address network vulnerabilities with the appropriate security measures.
  • Ensure that consideration is given to virtualization and cloud technology.
  • Design a logical and physical topographical layout of the planned network through the use of graphical tools in Microsoft Word or Visio, or an open source alternative such as Dia.
  • Explain the rationale for the logical and physical topographical layout of the planned network.

Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.

  • Illustrate the possible placement of servers, including access paths to the Internet and firewalls.

Note: facility limitations, workstations, printers, routers, switches, bridges, and access points should be considered in the illustration.

Create and describe a comprehensive security policy for the company that will:
  • Protect the company infrastructure and assets by applying the principals of CIA.

Note: CIA is a widely used benchmark for evaluation of information systems security, focusing on the three (3) core goals of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.

  • Address ethical aspects related to employee behavior, contractors, password usage, and access to networked resources and information.
Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
  • Be typed,
  • double spaced,
  • using Times New Roman font (size 12),
  • with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format.

Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date.

The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length. Include charts or diagrams created in MS Visio or Dia as an appendix of the infrastructure document. All references to these diagrams must be included in the body of the infrastructure document.

Section 2: Revised Project Plan
Use Microsoft Project to:
  • Update the project plan (summary and detail) template, from Project Deliverable 4: Cloud Technology and Virtualization, with three to five (3-5) new project tasks each consisting of five to ten (5-10) sub tasks.
The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:
  • Describe the methods and best practices in implementing process change in IT organizations.
  • Describe the role and methods of technology-induced process improvement in organizations.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in information systems.

Write clearly and concisely about leadership issues and strategic insight of the Information systems domain using proper writing mechanics and technical style conventions

Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates.

Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.
The following discussion assignment will be about network operating systems.

Many network operating systems are in use, and each one has strengths and weaknesses.

Using the library and the Internet, search for information about network operating systems, and discuss the following:

Compare and contrast at least 2 network operating systems.
For which types of systems is each operating system most suited, and why?

Responses to Other Students:

Respond to at least 2 of your fellow classmates with at least a 100-word reply about their Primary Task Response regarding items you found to be compelling and enlightening.

To help you with your discussion, please consider the following questions:
  1. What did you learn from your classmate’s posting?
  2. What additional questions do you have after reading the posting?
  3. What clarification do you need regarding the posting?
  4. What differences or similarities do you see between your posting and other classmates’ postings?

Please answer this question with following instruction:
  1. Question/focus and why it matters
  2. Key findings with citations
  3. Some kind of concrete example from your research to make it real for the audience
  4. A review of key findings at the end

Only cite readings that I upload here, check the upload files and select two of those readings to cite in your answer, MLA format citation and must have in-text citation.

One page and MUST finish within 5 hours, if you can’t don’t bid!

Configuring IP Settings; Connecting To A Network

Configuring IP Settings.

Configuring IP Settings

Prepare an initial researched and cited discussion response early in the week about the topic, Configuring IP Settings, and follow with at least two researched and cited replies to other class members or your instructor.

Please provide complete, well designed and substantive (150 words or more) responses in the discussion.

Research and APA references are necessary for every post. Wikipedia is not an acceptable resource, nor is your textbook.

The purpose of the discussion is to go BEYOND the material covered in the text.

Post a minimum of three (3) meaningful, researched and cited contributions each week.

When there are high-quality posts submitted in the discussion, then, there is a better chance for a high-quality grade.

Any minimum work deserves a minimum reward.

The 5 x 4 grading rubric …

[5 Performance Levels: Incompetent (60%), Novice (70%), Pertinent (80%), Efficient (90%), Proficient (100%)] …

[4 Criteria Areas: Content, Required Format, Grammar/Spelling, References with each area having 25% effective value]

Avoid Creating new threads, Why?

When we create new threads, we introduce the possibility that someone could miss what we have to say because they have to leave one discussion to move to another just to see what is going on in that thread.

Because most prefer to respond to another’s comment, keeping all comments in one discussion thread works best for sharing our knowledge.

Keep in mind — One should not expect a maximum grade for minimum work effort.

Also please note: I do not like the repetition of information. Once a classmate has posted information on a topic, do not repeat that information.

You must choose a different topic or supply NEW information on that particular topic. Failure to follow this will result in your post not counting for that week
