Learning Outcomes:
2 Understand the key components used in networking
Scenario:
The manager of the Estate Agents was impressed with the work that you completed about
possible network solutions and would now like you to design them a network for their
business. The Estate Agents is based over 2 floors of an old, Grade 2 Listed, early Victorian
building with the main sales show room on the ground floor and offices and a conference
room on the 1st floor. They currently employ 2 administration assistants who both share one of
the 1st floor offices, 2 full time estate agents who are based in the main sales show room,
when not out showing clients around properties, and two part-time estate agents who are also
based in the main sales show room. The manager also has an office on the 1st floor.
Requirements:
    1. All employees need to be able to share files.
    2. There must be printing facilities on both floors.
    3. System administration must be centralised.
    4. All staff must be able to log on to any of the networked computers.
    5. All staff must have access to the Internet.
    6. All staff must have email facilities.
    7. When giving presentations and during team meetings which are held in the conference
        room it must be possible to connect mobile devices to the network.
    8. When the current economic climate improves, the business intends to expand and this
        must be factored into your designs.
    9. Due to the nature of the building, Grade 2 Listed, trunking must be kept to a minimum
        and you will not be permitted to chase the plasterwork or cut large holes through walls.

Task 1 (Deadline Friday 30/09/11)
In a PowerPoint presentation explain the key components that will be required for the client
workstations to be able to connect to the network and access network resources.
                                                                                               P3
Task 2 (Deadline Thursday 06/10/11)
In a 3 column Word Table, list the 4 main interconnecting devices and explain the function
(What it does and how it does it) of each one. Use images to aid you in your explanation.
     Interconnecting Device    Function                        Image
     Hub
                                                                                               P4
Task 3 (Deadline 13/10/11)
You have each been provided with an A3 drawing of the Estate Agents offices. You are to
design the network solution to meet their requirements. When completing this task you should
use colour to help with clarity and you must use a ruler when drawing lines.
                                                                                         M2
Task 4 (Deadline 18/10/11)
You are to produce a formal report that clearly justifies the design, and choice of
components, for your proposed network for the Estate Agents and the choice of components
that you have used in the particular networked solution
                                                                                       D1
