To get started the LAN would be the main configuration for connecting the computers on each floor with star typology. Star topology will connect all nodes individually to a central connection point also known as the switch. A pro with this configuration if a cable fails only one node will be brought down and the rest will continue running. In addition, we can use twisted pair for the wire used to simply to cancel out electromagnetic interface from external sources since there will be multiple computers next to each other. The copper wire will lead to a switch connecting the devices together on the same network. This will also lead to the building backbone network. Also, known as the distribution layer, because it will be distributing network traffic to and from the LANs. Now those that we have the wire network it’s also recommended to have a wireless network in each building because many students will be using their own devices. We can simply set up 802.11 (WiFi) since we already have a wire network the campus should get by to support the users.
Furthermore, the switches on each floor would connect to the main switch on the first floor of each …show more content…

Which is also known as the core layer campus backbone network. Essentially everyone on campus will have internet connectivity and connect to any server or printer located in any of the other buildings. The reason behind this is the data center is the home of the database servers as well as mail servers. Any devices for example printers connected to the network users will be able to have access to them. If users needed to access the network from home or other features we can add VPN to the network. This will allow us to create a secure connection to the network over the internet. With this design the campus will have a much more reliable network to its
