Suggestion This assignment is developmental and cumulative. You are strongly advised to start doing this assignment from Week-3 in your study. Leaving your starting date to the week before the due date is a very poor strategy for success in the unit.
1 Problem Context
A private biomedical software development company has two branches spread over the Gold Coast region. The company’s local area network (LAN) is captured in the topology below:
Head Quarter network has XYZ network devices including all computers, printers, servers, routers and other devices. Branch A and B subsequently has XY and XZ devices. where XYZ are the last 3 digits of your student ID. If any of these 3 digits is Zero (0), replace them with any non-zero number you prefer to estimate the size of each branch network. Recently, the company has been assigned with a new space of IP addressing and the whole network has to be re-addressed.
2 The Task
There are two ways of presenting a network, the logical view and the physical view. Please read the CCNA chapter 3 in Resources which describes these two viewpoints. You will need to make both a logical and a physical diagram of the network based on the network shown above with the three routers. This is your network diagram mentioned in the rubric below.
You are contracted by the company to help with the IP address planning. The following is the new IP address space:
IPv4 network: 191.2.XY.0
IPv6 network: 2001:1234:ABCD: XY00::/56
See above for explanation of XY.
Your task in this assignment is to plan and document
An IPv4 address plan for the LAN
An IPv6 address plan for the LAN
You are expected to provide an optimum address allocation solution with the following details:
1. IP address requirement for each sub-network
2. IP address allocation plan for each network/sub-network including network address, subnet mask, broadcast address, default gateway address and valid host address range.
3. IP address allocation plan for key network device and interfaces e.g., servers, printers, router interfaces, etc.
