Hope this helps.
is my company information:
it two computer labs each with 10 workstations, one is used by the systems development team (systems lab) and the other is used by the content development team (content lab). Each lab has its own networked laser printer.
The third lab has 3 powerful workstations used for multimedia production (media lab)to be used by the media team. Each workstation in this lab is equipped with audio/video editing software. The media lab will initially share the systems lab printer.
In addition to the computer labs, the administration uses the company's network for accounting, secretarial support and the production of some advertising material. There are 3 workstations in the administration office. The workstations used for financial applications has its own modem link to the bank enabling direct transfer of funds.
All workstations have Internet and email access. The Internet is accessed by a router connected to an ADSL line with 512 Kbit/s bandwidth. At present, most Internet access is by general systems labs, but the media lab is expected to increase the load on the service, especially to upload and deliver video and multimedia using streamed video recordings. It is anticipated that there may be a need to review Internet access.
my company currently has 3 servers, one for the learning management system (LMS server), one for administration (admin and finance server), and one for email server (email server). It is planned to invest in an additional server (media server) for use the media team. The learning management server is shared by all company customers to store and deliver online courses. The email server manages emails for company staff, and the media server is used to stored and manage media files and also stream these files to the end user.
Media files are 10Mb on average and each employee in the media team is working on up to 3 different media files at any point time. It is anticipated the media files will be somewhat larger,an average 200Mb per file, but each employee will only be working on 1 film at any one time.
