There are two parts to this assignment, i.e. part A and part B.
A. Investigate, design and develop a suitable VPN network for an SME by addressing the following criteria. See detailed instruction in the next section. Note that final mark of part A would be affected by the presentation result of part B. This is to assure that students understand the work presented in part A. overall mark of part A could be deducted by 50% for poor presentation.
Part A description:
There are two areas to consider for VPN network design in this assignment.
1. Design a network for an SME. You need to consider that this SME has at least two main branches at different cities in Australia, and servicing customers across Internet from anywhere in the world.
2. Build VPN services for the users. The network solution would be built on a simulator (such as Packet Tracer or NetSim) and include establishing a VPN from remote site to main branch in a city in Australia.
The Report Contents must include:
• Scopes and Limitations
• Requirements (Network parts and VPN service parts)
• Solution Design
a. Logical Design
b. Physical Design
c. Network Topologies
d. IP addressing
e. Security features and Policies
f. Redundancy and Failover plans
g. VPN service implementation
• Refer the sample document included in below for network design, and consider how to implement VPN services onto the network. Do not copy the contents of the sample in your work as it is considered as plagiarism.
Part B description:
Prepare slides (between 10 – 15 slides) for presentation during the lab class. The solution of VPN services and network design shall be presented with 15 minutes for a group during week 11 Lab class. Presentation slides should be submitted in Moodle prior to the presentation for marking. No other options (e.g. hard copy, memory stick, website, email etc) will be considered but the presentation file submitted in Moodle.
