set up a WAN with enhanced routing and communication capabilities between two large buildings that are 500 feet apart on campus. The network must have a service provider link to a remote set of servers on the cloud.
For this assignment, you must write a technical paper that presents a solution for the scenario.
Your paper should include the following:
- Discuss the type of infrastructure that needs to be in place.
- Determine what methods of transmitting data packets should be used.
- Select and justify the types of switching that should be used (e.g., packet, circuit, message, cell relay, frame relay, ATM, other)
- Determine whether or not technologies like FDDI, SONET, SD-WAN, SMDS, or other options should be incorporated into the network. Explain your reasoning.
- Explain the protocols that are relevant to the WAN.
- Provide a critical analysis of your recommendations and articulate the potential risks involved or other considerations that may be necessary to implement them. Justify and support from the literature.
