By completing this assignment, students will be demonstrating their knowledge and skills leant from week 1-6 that include:
A private multimedia development company is opening its 3 new branches at the Gold Coast region, Australia. Head Quarter network has XYZ network devices including all computers, (X+2) printers, 3 servers, 1 router, (Z+3) switches and other network devices. Branches subsequently has (X+5)×(Y+5), XZ and ZY network devices including (Y+2) servers, 1 router, 2 switches in each branch.
Where XYZ are the last 3 digits of your student ID. If any of these three digits is Zero (0), replace them with the next non-zero number in your ID to estimate the size of each branch network.
Recently, the company has been assigned with a new space of IP addressing and the whole network has to be re-addressed.
You are contracted by the company to help with the IP address planning. The following is the new IP address space:
IPv4 network: 1XZ.YZ.XY.0/18 (See above for explanation of XYZ).
IPv6 network: 2011:BD8:ɵ::/48
where Θ is the last four digits of your student ID expressed in hexa-decimal.
Your task in this assignment is to plan and document
An IPv4 address plan for the LAN. Please note classful subnetting is legacy, i.e., old way of doing things so for the assessment you do not need to care about that.
An IPv6 address plan for the LAN
You are expected to provide an optimum address allocation solution with the following details:
- IP address requirement for each sub-network.
- IP address allocation plan for each network/sub-network including network address, subnet mask, broadcast address, default gateway address and valid host address range.
- IP address allocation plan for key network device and interfaces e.g., servers, printers, router interfaces, etc.
