Intro: Defining and Building Networks

Anonymous

Question Description

The first step will be to select a scenario organization as the target for your network implementation plan. This scenario organization will be used as the basis for each of the assignments throughout the course, and should conform to the following guidelines:

  • Nontrivial: The selected organization should be large enough to allow reasonable exercise of the networking principles in the course assignments.
  • Domain knowledge: You should be familiar enough with the organization to allow focus on the assignment tasks without significant time required for domain education.
  • Accessibility: You should have good access to the people and other information related to the organization because this will be an important part of the process.

Select a scenario organization that fits these requirements, and submit your proposal to your instructor before proceeding further with the assignments in the course. Approval should be sought within the first several days of the course. Your instructor will tell you how to submit this proposal and what notification will be given for approval.

Assignment Guidelines:

For the assignments in this course, you will be developing a comprehensive Network Implementation Plan document. Your first task in this process will be to select an organization to use as the basis of your plan. You will also create the shell document for the final project deliverable that you will be working on during each unit. As you proceed through each project week, you will add content to each section of the final document to gradually complete the final project delivery. Appropriate research should be conducted to support your work, and assumptions may be made when necessary.

As part of your weekly tasks, you will be reviewing and answering some questions based on what you learned going through LabSim for Network Pro (also covers Network+) Certification Training modules. This will help you to compile a toolkit to reference should you decide to take this exam. The topics you will be going through in LabSim will be spread out over a series of Networking courses, however should you choose to go through all of the materials on your own, and this will prepare you to take the certification exam at sponsored locations. The modules under LabSim for CompTIA – Network+ include:

  • Videos: 141 (18:44:06)
  • Demonstrations: 81 (10:47:01)
  • Simulations: 92
  • Fact Sheets: 142
  • Exams: 101

The following are the project deliverables:

  • Submit your target organization selection to the instructor for approval.
  • Network Implementation Plan document shell
    • Use MS Word
    • Title page
      • Course number and name
      • Project name
