Based on the scenario below, students will develop a 2-3 page networking report for the owners of the advertising agency. The report must include the following:
The WAN connectivity at each location

A diagram showing the WAN connectivity

An explanation of why the specific WAN technology was chosen

IP address strategies at each location

Wireless access strategy at the Austin office
An explanation of the terms and concepts used in the paperList and explain the services that will support remote workers

List and explain the service(s) that IT will use to access all workstations on the network

double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins, and discipline-appropriate citations
The scenario: Newton Ad Agency is a startup with three locations. The headquarters is located in Austin, TX, with a satellite office located 2 miles away in a rural area. There is a clear line of sight between the two offices. The New York office needs to share large media files with the Austin office. The New York office will also have a web server for clients to download large media files and needs to be able to do it quickly.
To hire the best talents, Newton Ad Agency allows employees to work from home full-time. Remote workers will need access to the network in Austin. The IT Department should have the ability to log into all of the workstations, including the remote computers, when they are connected to the network.
You have been hired as the network administrator. You are tasked with building the network IP strategy, building a remote access strategy, and selecting WAN technologies that meet the business requirements. As one of your first tasks, you have been asked to develop a proposal for the management team. These members have varying backgrounds and sometimes limited knowledge of IT services.
