Tutor description

In order to have optimal security, we recommend a client/server network architecture. We would place the server in the free space by the Guidance Office. We will place the Main Distribution Frame (MDF) in the free space in the library as well as the Intermediate Distribution Frame (IDF). The Internet provider will connect to the MDF, and the MDF will connect to the IDF which will connect all the the computers and peripherals to the network server. We additionally, place a second server in the free space in the library. This server will back up the main server, and provide necessary redundancy to safe guard the Student Information System the school would like to set in place. In addition, an off-site back-up service such as Barracuda will be used to ensure that district files are safe in the event of fire, flood, or other disasters.

For the wired topology we recommend an extendedstar topology for several reasons. The extended star will cut down on costs. It will also optimize thenetwork speed. Extended star topologies are fairly easy to manage, and they allow for easy expandabilityin the future.In order to meet the need of the core area teachers, we are proposing adding three sets of computers onwheels (COW). Each COW will be on a cart which will contain 24 Dell laptops, a printer, wireless router,and all power accessories. The COW will b
