Question 1: (40 pts.)

Suppose you have a consulting practice implementing local area networks for fraternities and sororities on your campus.

  1. Consider a fraternity house. Explain how a LAN could be used to connect all of the computers in the house. Would you recommend an Ethernet LAN, an 802.11 LAN, or a combination? Justify your answer.
  2. This chapter did not provide enough information for you to determine how many switches the fraternity house might need. However, in general terms, describe how the fraternity could use a multiple-switch system.

Considering the connection to the Internet, would you recommend that the fraternity house use a DSL, a cable modem, or a WAN wireless? Although you can rule out at least one of these alternatives with the knowledge you already have, what additional information do you need in order to make a specific recommendation?

Should you develop a standard package solution for each of your customers? What advantages accrue from a standard solution? What are the disadvantages?

Define cloud and explain the three key terms in your definition. Using the Figure above as a guide, compare and contrast cloud-based and in-house hosting. In your opinion, explain the three most important factors that make cloud-hosting preferable to on-site hosting.
