Revised Cisco Networking: WAN Implementation with SOHO Configuration

Revised Cisco Networking: WAN Implementation with SOHO Configuration

Subject: General Questions    / College life

You have been recently hired as a network administrator for the xAcme Technology Trade School. The company is realizing that the local systems administrators need help implementing certain technologies at each of the remote locations, as well as final WAN configurations. Out of the network administrators on staff, you have been asked to move forward the project. With your background and skills, you will design, implement, and assist in configurations to support xAcme’s topology. Technologies to implement will differ from site to site, as administrators have begun topology implementations. You will be provided the overall topology as well as certain device configurations in order to determine the best course of action per site/challenge. In addition to helping them configure their network, they require that all new network administrators obtain their CCNA Certification within 60 days of being hired. You are excited about starting this project but realize creating a schedule to help balance your work and home life will be key to success.

To get started, follow the steps below:

IEEE Format and also the assignment will be submitted on TurnItin.


Along with the challenges presented in this document, you will be provided an overall site topology to work from, as well as specific device configurations (where applicable) to make your recommendations.

Suggested solutions should be comprehensive and justified in approach. Configurations of technologies should be written out to help guide the systems administrators with implementation. In some cases, you may find it necessary to implement additional cabling, which can be done by adding to the supplied topology. Any adjustments to the sites’ topology that you find necessary should be documented and supplied with your submission.

Your document will be divided up by site and solutions per site. Each area is unique in requirements but collectively will demonstrate your understanding of network routing and switching technologies. Each scenario will provide you with suggested sections within TestOut (LabSim) to use as a guide in your analysis and recommendations.

You can use this”>template as a guide on how to format your project. Be sure to cite your external sources using the”>IEEE citation style. To learn how you will be assessed on this assignment, please take a moment to review the”>rubric.
Existing VLANs

Remote locations vary in terms of size and requirements. Some implementations will require current site router/switch-running configurations, which will be provided. All sites will use the following four VLANs, but you will need to configure only what is asked per site (some assumptions will be made).

Existing VLANs, per xACME:
Faculty VLAN
used by faculty on-site for all office locations (non-instructional communications)
total devices per site will vary
Administrative VLAN
used by staff on-site for business administrative communications
total devices per site will vary
Academic VLAN
used by faculty and students for classroom labs and instructional communications
total devices per site will vary
Server VLAN
used by IT staff for all technology/management communications
total devices per site will vary

The types of devices per site will be the same; however, the number of deployed devices may vary (all documented in the xAcme educational topology).

Routers Per Site:
Cisco 2800 Series Integrated Services
Interfaces Ports Available    4 Fast Ethernet Interfaces

(Per Router)    2 Serial Interfaces

(Per Router)
fa0/0    s0/0/0
fa0/1    s0/0/1

Switches Per Site:
Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series
Ports Available    96 Total Gigabit Ethernet

Ports Per Switch
Module 1 = gi0/1 – gi0/24
Module 2 = gi1/1 – gi1/24
Module 3 = gi2/1 – gi2/24
Module 4 = gi3/1 – gi3/24

Note:Device type will not impact your configuration commands and implementation of ALL required technologies will use Cisco IOS commands/concepts learned in our TestOut lecture(s). Standard switchports will be configured and used as trunk OR access ports and DCE ends should be noted when configuring serial ports per router.
