That's a job for a professional company, certainly not suitable to be explained in a blog.

I know it's for professional still what can be the basic procedure for learning it?

Basic procedure.

In reply to: Re: Kees_B

That's following a lot of courses, about server management, network management, security and devices. And training on the job in a junior function.

Let's say you are the CTO or CIO doing this.

You call up Cisco and other big network companies to bid on your RFQ.

If I read "a whole new network" that could very well be not only a WiFi-infrastructure, but just as well a webserver, a few Windows servers for MS Exchange, Sharepoint, SQL, and for file shares, a whole new Ethernet and 100 PC's. All part of the network. That's much more than Cisco.

So the question was too vague for any meaningful answer, other than "have it done".

Who else?

In reply to: Re: Cisco

The last time Cisco called and I was in on the meeting they did more than just the network. Exchange and more.

Another name in big systems is Dell. They do it all today.

The question is not a new one and if it is for school as in an assignment there are no wrong answers. If I asked that it would be to see if the prospective applicant knew when the job was so big that we had it done for us.

The Base of any required network.

In reply to: How to create network for a college?

In general the base of any network is one router, which can be configured as a connection to the ISP as a gateway as well as a firewall installed within. Depending on the number of students you may have to add a switch as well.
