Question description

Resources: LaFleur Virtual Organization, University of Phoenix Material: Final Learning Team Paper and Presentation

Consolidate all sections of the paper into a final single submission including a persuasive conclusion that will convince the company executives that these networking and communications installations are feasible and necessary. The paper should be 10- to 12-pages formatted consistent with APA guidelines.

Project Description

You must design a network telecommunications upgrade for the LaFleur Trading Company on the Virtual Organizations web site.

Enterprise-Wide Network Scenario

LaFleur Trading Company wants to review their current network and telecommunications system.  They are currently using a Windows® 2003 server for network operations but want to look at also using UNIX® or Linux systems as possible additions to increase overall communication security. Unfortunately, little information is available for their current operations. It is necessary to complete research to determine what type of network and communication systems could be the best choices for this type of business. Some assumptions must be made but should be supported by adequate outside research on what has been used for similar companies.

Organizational Chart

As part of the project assignment, you must also examine the LaFleur Trading Company Organizational Chart on the Virtual Organizations website.

Current Network Configuration

The basis for the company network is three Core2 Duo Processor E6320 network servers, using a Cisco® 2811 router. Network connections are handled through a Cisco® smart switch bank with the capability of 200 connections.  The current network operating system is Windows® 2003, but not all patches and updates have been installed, which causes some issues with communication. The computer room is near the CIO’s office and includes connection via T1.

The web server and applications including the customer database are being maintained on one of the three servers previously described.

The new network is to allow the following:

·  All sales, finance, and operations need to share customer order databases to ensure accurate inventory, successful delivery of orders, and that payments are received and accounted for accurately.

·  Operations must be able to be able to monitor deliveries both through the database and through contact with drivers.

·  All employees must have secure company e-mail.

·  All employees must be able to e-mail to people outside the company.

·  There must be web access to all, but also an Intranet with appropriate safeguards.

·  Remote access must be available for executive, sales, and delivery personnel.

·  Provide the most economical and efficient telephonic communications

·  Firewall to Internet capability

·  Configuration of network system that ensures secure access for all employees and protects corporate and customer data
