NETW206 assignment help PLEASE

by iannet60 / May 5, 2012 7:10 AM PDT

My campus has decided to enhance security by installing high-definition IP cameras throughout its campus network. After evaluating different products, the Cisco 4300 Video Surveillance camera was chosen as the standard.
We recognizes that the additional camera traffic, along with its management, will require a major upgrade to the network infrastructure. I am asked to design a network switching infrastructure infrastructure that fully supports both the existing data traffic and the additional camera traffic according to the following requirements.

Your network design should address each of the following requirements:
1. Must comply with the Cisco hierarchical design model;
2. Must provide physical, as well as logical, redundancy;
3. Must integrate 1Gb uplinks;
4. Must segment camera IP traffic from the existing network for security reasons;
5. Must support a minimum of 150 cameras;
6. Must utilize PoE for cameras to avoid the use of power bricks or power injectors;
7. Must provide sufficient bandwidth for full HD support; and
8. Must minimize rack space.
UGH...I am so confused and dont even know where to begin! Any help would be appreciated!

If this was real you would pay someone who knows how to install this. You are talking about over $100,000 in just cameras. More than likely the cisco partner selling you this stuff would design it for free...since they can sell you even more expensive things like the controller than can actually run 150 cameras.

For a school assignment how would you not know where to start. They are not going to throw this to you as a first problem in a class. I would assume they taught you all about power budgets and poe, bandwidth requirements based on codecs, as well as the basic stuff on QoS and spanning tree.

The purpose of the assignment is learn, you might as well be a project manager if you are just going to get someone else to do the work.

By the way the real answer is the requirements are invalid the 4300 is a end of life product and cannot be you even know how to find the recommended replacement.

If you post around asking for homework help, I've read some of the worst replies ever.

We know this this is your homework so for others to help means you didn't do the work!

I agree.

Cisco provides this service and design along with the sale. It's odd to pick an unit that is not offered any longer.

I have the same assignment now from Devry and I was just wondering if you have completed it to just tell me how you set it up. In what program did you do the work? I'm not asking for your work I want to learn this but there seems to be a lack of examples for this assignment. I just don't know how it needs to look and be presented. If you could help me even a little bit I would appreciate it a lot.
