ME504: Advanced Networking: Master of Engineering (MENG)
Assignment 1 – Detailed design of a modern network for a multi-site resort
You are required to propose a detailed solution for the above discussed problem addressing all the challenges
and write a report about it.
There are three (3) areas to consider for advanced network design in this assignment.
1. Propose a detailed design/layout for a resort/hotel having multiple indoor and outdoor sites;
2. Design/Propose LAN (including Wireless LAN) and WAN services for the users
3. Research about LAN, wireless LAN and WAN technologies (Equipment, protocols and services)
4. Report must include:
Introduction (03 marks)
Site map/diagram (this need to be virtually assumed according to you own assumption/thinking)
Scopes and Limitations (10 marks)
Solution/Design (15 marks)
a. Logical Design and physical Design
b. Network structure/topologies
Protocols, technologies and services (10 marks)
c. IP addressing
d. Security features, policies, redundancy
e. Provision of wired and wireless internet for staff and student
WAN and LAN Services design and analysis (05 marks)
Internet (05 marks)
Summary (05 marks)
References (05 marks)
