Description

You are the network engineer contracted to establish a WAN connectivity between two office locations for a local corporation. The main corporate headquarters has 2,000 end stations and all server data. The remote office has 550 workstation users. All users from the remote office will be connecting into headquarters to access resources. However, your boss is concerned with this. He does not understand how all of the users will be able to access the resources from HQ using only one link. In 1– 2 pages, explain the following to him:

  • The technology that allows this to happen
  • How this technology will allow the data request from multiple users to flow across a single link

To aid your explanation, use a Visio diagram (or similar software) of the layout of the two LANs to be connected by the WAN links.

Network Connectivity

The internet is the biggest WAN ever (Chow, Rhee, Tehrani, & Goldburg, 2016). Its
establishment is as a result of interconnections that exist between and among billions of devices
that can share the information. It means that network connectivity is an integral aspect of the data
communications platform and the choice of its structure and design would thus depend on what
the area of coverage and the purpose each connection servers.
Different technologies would be used in the connection of LANs to WANs, but each of
them depends on what it stands to achieve or the scope that an information system covers. In his
context, the suitable technology that facilitates the connection is the packet switching
technology.
