    hi have got a case study for my ccna and nee dsome advice...please : )

    I have to propose a network design for a company, it contains a couple of LAN and a WAN- have to include topology, cable type, sub net info and list hardware and costings (excl. labour)

    How should a report like this look like, what drawings and fig should be shown, if anyone has any examples would be fab!

    Hi mike, well I didnt explain myself very well, I can have a crack at the topology and connections but its got to be structured in a report to the company so I dont know where to start regarding the layout, costings, specs, explanation of the network connections and justifications including alternate upgrades.

    From what I remember of my CCDA studies, there's some good examples in the CCDA books of how to propose a network design to a customer... of course, it may have changed a lot since then...

    elasticskunk,

    I did this a little while ago for my CCNA, and as I recall, I first did a Diagram of the existing topology and a section on how it currently was configured.

    Then I had a network diagram of how I would update it. a sheet of the cost of the material that needs to be bought for the upgrade. and a section on why i chose the approach I did to improve the network.

    Hope thats of some help

    elasticskunk,

    How is one system connected to both the token ring network as well as the internet?
