Network Design Proposal



CMIT 265 project instruction

You have been hired as part of the networking team at UMUC. After completing orientation and training, your manager calls you into a meeting to discuss your first project.

The university has recently leased a building in Adelphi, Maryland. The building will house offices, classrooms, a library, and computer labs. Security is important for UMUC, as the university must protect students’ and employees’ data, as well as any intellectual property that UMUC has on its servers and computers. As a result, IT management would like to take the time to review proposals on how best to move forward on security issues. As a network engineer, you have been asked to prepare a network proposal on how to set up a secure network infrastructure in this building to support university operations.


  • Each Classroom Computer Lab will be on a separate network (i.e., subnet). The Library Computer Lab will be on a separate network, and the Office / Admissions computers will also be on a separate network. Finally, the open-WiFi network should be on a separate network, but can use a private IP address range (i.e.,
  • There must be a minimum of 40 Mbps Internet connection, with a backup line capable of at least 20 Mbps. Cable, DSL, or FIOS should not be used for primary Internet service.
  • The network has been assigned the network address for all computers and devices.
  • Physical Network Design
  • Network Addressing
  • Network Services Design
  • Include at least five scholarly references.
  • Use IEEE-style citations.
  • Use correct network terminology.
  • The use of diagrams is encouraged.
Physical Network Design
  1. Define the topology that will be used.
  2. Select the appropriate network media.
  3. Select the appropriate network connecting devices, including network security devices.
  4. Select the appropriate computer systems to use to support the network design.
  5. Determine a physical layout of the computers on the floor plan, along with the network wires (network wiring diagram).
  6. Provide justifications for each element of your network design (numbers 1–4 above).
Network Addressing
  1. Watch How to Subnet a Network Video provided in Content -> Project Instructions
  2. Review the Network Address Template provided in Content -> Project Instructions -> Project Templates for Parts 1 - 3
  3. Complete the subnet chart provided at the end of the document.
Network Services Design
  1. Identify network services needed.
  2. List additional servers or network devices needed to implement the network.
  3. List network security measures to be implemented.
  4. Justify the need for the network services, security measures, and devices you've selected.


You will provide a detailed network design proposal. Your task is to design the network for this new building with the following criteria:
