You are assigned a project to design the computer network for a new Dental Office in your neighborhood. The office will host the following equipment:
5 dental examination room each with a computer to access patient information.
2 offices for the 2 Dentists who owns the facility, each office with a laptop station.
1 Reception area with a computer desk and printer
1 shared printer for the dentist and office staff in a shared location
1 server computer to host the web software application to manage patient appointments, and treatment history and to process payments.
NOTE: Assume a $300.00 cost per cable drop and a $5000.00 cost for a server.
Required items are below
Cover Page including the course title, project title, submission date, and name.
Introduction: State the objective of the case studies and provide some background information.
Network Design: Summarize the background for this case study. Provide a diagram of your network and the class diagram. Describe in detail the research/changes/suggestions.
Hardware /Software overview
IP address details
Wired / Wireless Connections
Wireless Network (Access Points)
Wired (Network switch / Router)
Security Implementation: Discuss the methods you suggested for securing your network.
Logical (Configurations implemented / Protocols)
Testing / Validation of Security Measures: Discuss the methods you suggest testing and validate the measures that you have put in place to mitigate threat actor attacks on the network that you have designed.
Results and discussion â€“ Discuss the overall results of the final network, and any additional insights and information related to your findings.
As the Network Designer, you are required to design the computer network for the dental office. You must take into consideration that the printers and the 6 computers in the examination rooms and Reception area may not be Wi-Fi Enabled.
Provide a diagrammatic representation of the network design (Packet Tracer Diagram can help you here), network devices used, and the reasons behind selecting that network. Select specific market-branded devices (i.e.: Cisco) and provide a pricing sheet for the network devices.
Secure the Network
As the network designer and administrator, you are required to come up with strategies to secure the office network. Present a detailed strategy on the list of security threats you considered across all layers of the network and the strategies you propose to apply to secure the network.
