Network Design Proposal Part 2

 

II.                  Network Addressing

A.     Subnets

Business Needs

The school asked us to make sure we are running different networks to ensure that students, administration and the general public aren’t sharing networks. During the day, multiple computers will be in use at the same time. Making different subnets will allow for better speeds on each subnet.

Proposed Subnets

We would create different subnets for students, faculty and the public on different subnets. Once divided into groups, we will separate the subnets even more by each floor to allow the IT departments to identify and understand each subnet.  We have already been assigned 10.13.0.0/16 network address for the computers and devices.

[2]Students on 1st Floor- Subnet Address 10.13.8.0 and will have a host address range between 10.13.8.1 to 10.13.15.254 and a broadcast address of 10.13.15.255.

Students on 2nd Floor –Subnet address 10.13.16.0 and will have a host address range 10.13.16.1 to 10.13.23.254 and a broadcast address of 10.13.23.255.

Faculty on 1st Floor-Subnet address 10.13.24.0 and will have a host range between 10.13.24.1 to 10.13.31.254 and broadcast address of 10.13.31.255.

Faculty on 2nd Floor-Subnet address 10.13.32.0 and will have a host range 10.13.32.1 to 10.13.39.254 and a broadcast address of 10.13.39.255.

Wireless (Wi-Fi)-Subnet address of 10.13.40.0 and will have a host range 10.13.40.1 to 10.13.47.254 and a broadcast address of 10.13.47.255.

Printers-Subnet address of 10.13.48.0 and will have a host range 10.13.48.1 to 10.13.55.254 and a broadcast address of 10.13.55.255.

 

             Justification

We would divide each group into a different subnet to abide by the guidelines that the school provided to us. This will ensure that information can be saved into a different subnet while allowing only those in the same subnet to be able to share the same information. Dividing groups into different subnets will manage traffic and allow for more speed in each subnet. [2] Dividing large networks into smaller ones will make troubleshooting easier, by isolating network problems down to their specific location.
