                               On-ground/Online – Spring 2011

Instructor: Douglas Blakemore

Office Hours: by appointment; either face-to-face, phone, Skype or email.

Integrity: Each person is expected to do his/her own work. Any copying, plagiarism or
aiding anyone else on copying or plagiarism in projects, the individual's portion of a
team project, papers, quizzes and/or tests will mean an automatic failure of that project
regardless of the outcome of the students grade for the course. There will be no
opportunity to make up the work, or extra credit opportunity given other than what is available
(if any) to the entire class. Each paper and/or project has the potential to be submitted to
search tools such as turnitin.com to check for plagiarism. Your submission of homework
implies your agreement for your homework to be inspected for plagiarism violations. On
quizzes and tests, if a person is caught helping another person both will be given a zero for
the quiz or test.

This syllabus is a work in progress and as such, is subject to change without advance notice if
the instructor determines it is necessary. However, all attempts will be made never to make
changes – especially in adding extra work beyond what is listed in this syllabus.

NOTE: There is no guarantee going into this class that you will receive any particular grade. If
you are expecting to get a good grade out of this course it will be much easier to put in
significant effort during the class to get a good grade than it will be to beg for more time
and/or redoing poor quality work over again after the course is over or after an assignment is
due.

                                         Assignment 1

Assignment Definition:
The goal of this project is to extend the learning in projects 2 and 3 (no hands on).
Design (draw) a local area network for a company whose building is at least 3 stories tall.
There are at least 60 workstations, 7 servers in a building with at least 12 rooms.
        - The ground floor is going to be connected via WIRELESS connection
        - The rest of the floors are connected via WIRED connections with the option for
handling wireless connections on all floors to accommodate personal computers, smart
phones and/or guests with their own equipment.

In your design, identify the location (including distances – right on the drawing) of:
                 The servers
                 Each workstation
                 Each switch, hub and/or router and/or access point
                 Wiring diagram (show the path the wires are to take to the equipment).
                 Your building will be connected to the Internet, make sure and include
it in your drawing as well as any security to be included in the design.
                 Create a narrative of your drawing identifying make, model, specifications,
price of each of your components. In the price of cabling, include prices of cable trays for
running the cables above the ceiling tile of each floor.

Give the specifications of the server, switches, hubs, routers and wiring used
Show all Servers and ALL cable runs.

Part 2: Discuss (no need to draw any of this part) what would need to be added to be able to
connect securely to an identical building 200 miles away that would have approximately the
same configuration. What equipment would be added to your design to accommodate this?

        Software for creating the drawing: You can choose from a wide range of software
programs for doing the drawing including doing it by hand. If using software, make sure and
imbed the finished product into the Word document and/or if possible export your drawing to a
PDF format to ensure that I will be able to read it.

Include cover page and table of contents
All work needs to be submitted in one document if possible – whatever you use to draw your
network, it needs to be submitted to me in either .doc or .docx or pdf format.


                                         Assignment 2

The goal of this project is to critically analyze operating system strengths and weaknesses
through hands on and secondary research.

Write a paper evaluating the uses of a particular server operating system in a business
environment (Windows 2008; Vista; Linux; AS400; Unix or Mac). Give specifications, market
use, potential market use; scalability etc. Minimum page length is 8 to 10 pages not counting
cover page, reference page, table of contents etc).
        Include research with various server functions such as user management, web
management, file management, database management, security, scalability, etc.
