									6.      System infrastructure requirements (SIR)

6.1     External Hardware

O’Toole’s Gardening Services Pty Ltd, including all of its staff and major stakeholders, has direct or
indirect interactions with the following important external hardware:

6.1.1   Client Hardware:

On-site Workstation (A), which is the main personal computer (PC) used by Mr. Damon O’Toole (Owner
and Operator, O’Toole’s Gardening Services Pty Ltd) to perform day to day business related tasks.

On-site Workstation (B), which is the personal computer (PC) to be used by staff in future; additionally it
will serve as a backup option if there are any issues encountered with Workstation A. (Optional
consideration is to use Workstation B as a Print Server to network the current printer, which is to be
discussed as part of the final hardware upgrade).

Multifunction Printer / Scanner / Copier / Fax – Not Networked (will be networked once hardware
upgrade is completed, and there are two PC’s on-site)

Corded and Cordless landline telephone units

Mobile / Cellular phone devices

Modem (ADSL 2+ standard compliant once hardware upgrade is completed with integrated physical
Firewall and VoIP capabilities which are to be further discussed as part of the final hardware upgrade)

User Client, which are the personal computers, laptops and potentially smart phones used by users to
communicate with O’Toole’s Pty Gardening Services Pty Ltd via direct email; or using the Internet
through the online system developed specifically for contact purposes on the website.

6.1.2   Networks:

The Internet, which is a global network used for communication purposes among users (customers),
potential users (potential customers), suppliers, staff and O’Toole’s Gardening Pty Ltd.

Local Area Network (LAN), which is the internal local area network used for communication on-site at
O’Toole’s Gardening Services Pty Ltd, for purposes of proposed networked printing and the networking
of two PC’s (which will be available once the hardware upgrade, in which it is proposed to add an
additional PC, is completed). This would allow for a further means of communication (i.e. email, instant
messaging, etc.) among employees of the company and Mr. Damon O’Toole.

Leased Telephone Lines, which are dedicated telephone line(s) connecting O’Toole’s Gardening Services
Pty Ltd to its customers, suppliers, staff and other potential users via telephone or fax. Furthermore, a
leased line is required to connect O’Toole’s Gardening Services Pty Ltd’s on-site LAN to their Internet
Service Provider’s (ISP) gateway for Internet access and connectivity (which will be an ADSL 2+
connection once the hardware upgrade is completed).

Mobile / Cellular Phones, which are dedicated GSM/UMTS network supported devices, connecting Mr.
Damon O’Toole and all staff members of O’Toole’s Gardening Pty Ltd for internal daily business
operations, in addition to contact purposes from customers, suppliers and other potential users.
