Assignment Background Information

DeVry University has decided to enhance security by installing high-definition IP cameras throughout its campus network. After evaluating different products, the Cisco 4300 Video Surveillance camera was chosen as DeVry’s standard.

DeVry recognizes that the additional camera traffic, along with its management, will require a major upgrade to the network infrastructure. A phased project was created to enable NETW206 students to design and implement the network infrastructure within a single session. The four project phases are:

1. Phase 1 (Week 1): Design Network Switching Infrastructure

2. Phase 2 (Week 3): Standardize Network Configurations

3. Phase 3 (Week 5): Network Assessment

4. Phase 4 (Week 7): Extending the Network

Phase 1 Assignment

As the network engineer, you have been asked to design the new network switching infrastructure that fully supports both the existing data traffic and the additional camera traffic according to the following requirements.

Design Requirements

Your network design should address each of the following requirements:

1. Must comply with the Cisco hierarchical design model;

2. Must provide physical, as well as logical, redundancy;

3. Must integrate 1Gb uplinks;

4. Must segment camera IP traffic from the existing network for security reasons;

5. Must support a minimum of 150 cameras;

6. Must utilize PoE for cameras to avoid the use of power bricks or power injectors;

7. Must provide sufficient bandwidth for full HD support; and

8. Must minimize rack space.

Deliverables

You are required to prepare a detailed network report for your manager at the next scheduled meeting.

Your report should:

1. Thoroughly describe how your network design supports each of the requirements above to enable DeVry to take full advantage of the Cisco 4300 IP cameras.

IMPORTANT: A report template is provided beginning on the next page and you must use it to submit your assignment. Before submitting your assignment, delete the first three pages of this document containing the instructions.

Your submitted assignment should begin with the Title Page and only contain your report.
