Question 1: (40 pts.)
Suppose you have a consulting practice implementing local area networks for fraternities and sororities on your campus.
- 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.
- 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?
