Jane Doe Global Hospital owns a network of hospitals supported by four (4) office buildings.
Their original design, depicted in Figure 1, was categorized as a medium-size network for 200 to
1,000 devices. They have well surpassed this and added new services in telemedicine. In
addition, it has several flaws. You, as their senior network engineer, are tasked with the job of a
complete re-design. This design must support a large-size network for over 1,000 devices,
address the current design flaws per figure 1, and meet the future needs of a globally capable
hospital IT infrastructure. *Note, each of the office buildings in Figure 1 also contains additional
routers, switches, workstations, and servers that would support a typical hospital office building
of this hospital size. Include these devices to meet the rubric requirements as you design the
detailed version of this network. Regardless, only one workstation is needed per network switch
to show working functionality.
In this project, you will study performance improvements in a congested, wired WAN
environment that can be solved to varying degrees by a new IT infrastructure design and fully
functional implementation in Cisco Packet Tracer.
Take screenshots demonstrating your network, servers, configurations, and protocols
properly functioning in the new design. Screenshots must include a unique piece of
information identifying the student’s computer along with a proper operating system
date/time. Submit these as appendices in the Word document.
Submit a working Packet Tracer lab, typically this file has a .pkt file extension.
o This will include the fully operational new IT infrastructure design
o All devices in the lab must be named with your first name and last name
o All hardware and software should be configured properly and should be able
to communicate securely using optimized networking designs, configurations,
Packet Tracer IT Infrastructure Re-Design Requirements
o You must start with a blank/new Packet Tracer file, existing labs or modified
labs of existing solutions will receive a zero without exception
o Include the existing hospital network design but optimized/improved
LANs must function using the OSPF protocol
Buildings 1 and 3 must connect to buildings 2 and 4 using a properly
selected and configured WAN protocol
o Design a large-size network for over 1,000+ devices
An appropriate WAN design supported by research is necessary
Add appropriate routers and switches to support this new design
Design and configure at least one appropriate networking protocol,
IPv4 or IPv6
Design IP addressing that will scale to over 1,000 devices
Use proper network address translation (NAT)
o Add appropriate security into the design, at least one (1) significant
Page 3 of 4
o Add sufficient modularity, resiliency, and flexibility into the design, at least
one significant improvement for each for a total of three (3) optimizations
o Design and implement the following new services and systems
Assure each service supports telemedicine
A Healthcare Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system
Requires four front-end web servers
Requires load balancers that balance traffic to the front-end
Requires two database servers
Requires a storage area network (SAN) to store all data
A website hosted on a web server in each ISP, accessible by all
Two new user workstations in each building that uses the new services
and services properly
Show these services working on each workstation in your
project (e.g. the Healthcare ERP, the websites in the ISPs)
Paper Requirements (Introduction, Literature Review, and Conclusion)
o Submit a properly formatted APA paper in Microsoft Word
o Here is an example paper:
o Table of Contents that automatically adjusts page numbers of the main
Introduce the primary goals and objectives of the project
o Review of literature that supports the new system simulation, model, and
Include appropriate IT frameworks and standards in which to design a
large enterprise class IT infrastructure and network
Address system feasibility, RAS (reliability, availability,
serviceability), security, and disaster recovery
Include at least 10 scholarly journal articles focusing on relevant
research on the problems being addressed
o Packet Tracer design explanation
Explain each of the additions and improvements
Reference the primary configurations and how these were developed
Include running configurations from routers/switches as appendices
Highlight any limitations, managerial implications, and conclusions of
the project deliverables and outcomes
