Title of task: Assessment 1- Network design
Subject code: COIT 20264
Objective: To utilize top down network methodology in order to design logical network on the basis of given scenario.
Overview: In this assignment, there are two parts a student needs to cover such as Part A and Part B. Part A requires to analyze the provided scenario in order to prepare as well as develop a presentation of logical network design. Student should create video presentation. Part B requires to write a report of logical network design in order to provide a list of business and technical goal, tradeoffs and constraints, network applications, naming and addressing model, justification for the network diagram, and routing and switching protocols along with the security mechanisms. In this assignment, there is not any requirement of including executive summary, the introduction, table of contents and conclusion.
Tool requirement: Packet Tracer.
Students are required to prepare a document of 2500 words which should include the following figures:
Business goals and constraints: Related to the given scenario.
Technical goals and tradeoffs: In terms of network design and its functioning.
Tables: Including data stores, applications, traffic flows, and user communities.
Addressing and naming model: Including addressing and naming schemes in table.
Justification for network design: In terms of device description.
Logical network diagram: Comprising naming and addressing scheme for each and every network.
Protocols for routing and switching: To describe the privacy for network and communication.
Security mechanisms: For the protection of confidential information in network.
References: All the references should be in Harvard referencing guidelines.
Expert’s advice and suggested modifications
The assignment also requires to find different medical equipment which can be used in the network design and the assumptions for Utopimed network design are discouraged. Each and every step of the network design should be explained clearly along with the proper justification to satisfy technical and business goals.

COIT202 64 Network Design (HT 2, 201 9)
Assessment I tem 1 - Written Assessment
Due date: 08:00am AEST, Monday, Week 9 ASSESSMENT
Weighting: Part A: 12%; Part B: 28 %
Length: Part A: Individual presentation video .
Part B: No word count limit.
This assessment task relates to Unit Learning Outcomes 1 to 5 and can be undertaken individually or
in a group of up to 4 students. Distance students can form groups with on -campus students as well.
Using top -down network design methodology, you will develop your logical network design based on
the scenario given on p age 5 of this document. You may make any justifiable assumptions but you
should mention them wherever you use. Y ou are also expected to contribute to the Group Discussion
Forum in Moodle by finding the answers to the recommended weekly group discussion questions (Q2
of Week 4, Q2 of Week 5 and Q2 of Week 6). This assessment task has two parts, Part A and Part B.
Part A of Assessment Task (individual)
In Part A of this assessment task, you should analyse the given scenario and individually prepare and
deliver a presentation on your contribution to the logical network design of your group using the top -
down ne twork design methodology. You should individually prepare the presentation slides and
create a video of your presentation. The part of contribution that you make should be agreed with your
group members and communicated to your tutor and the unit coordinator via email in Week 4 .
If you are not in a group, i.e., if you are working individually, your video and presentation slides
should cover the entire logical network design.
You should upload your presentation slides to Moodle and your video to YouTube , and provide the
link to the video on the presentation slides. If you password protect your video, please ensure that you
provide the login credentials to access the video as well. The length of your video should be limited to
4 min if you are in a group of 4 members, to 5 min if you are in a group of 3 membe rs, to 7 min if you
are in a group of 2 members and to 1 2 min if you are not in a group. Please note that a video
presen tation means that you, as the presenter, should be visible in the video.
Note: You must follow the Harvard citation and referencing guidelines when preparing your

Assessment C riteria for Part A
In Part A of this assessment task , you are assessed mainly against your ability to analyse the given
scenario and individually prepare and deliver a presentation on your contribution to the logical
network design of your group , using the top -down ne twork design methodology. The marking criteria
for Part A of this assessment task are provided on page 3 . You need to familiarise yourself with the

The Scenario for Network Design Assessment Task s
Your company in Australia specialises in designing networks for local and international clients. Its
new project is to design a n enterprise network for a chain of medical centre s of Utopimed located in
the capital cit ies of all Australian states. Utopimed is managed from the medical centre in Melbourne.
Each medical cen tre has 10 chambers for GPs and 10 chambers for specialists so that a maximum of
20 doctors can see patients at a time. All chamber s should be equipped with computers connected to
the enterprise network of Utopimed. In addition, there will be exercise treadmills, blood pressure
monitors, ICU bedside monitors , blood sugar monitors in the chambers of specialists that will
wirelessly send the data of the patients through the enterprise network. Each medical centre has a
reception , a laboratory , a room for the visiting management and a radio logy unit as well. The
reception should have a photocopying machine, 3 computers and 3 telephones to take the
appointment s of patients . Laboratory staff will undertake most of the tests and produce results in-
house , and rarely the specimens will have to be sent to a third party lab. The laboratory staffs upload
the reports into the system , and the doctors can see them instantly . The third party labs can also
upload reports directly into Utopimed’s system. The room for the visiting management has a
computer and a telephone connected to the enterprise network. Each radiology unit will have one unit
from each of X-ray, Ultrasound, MRI and C T scan machine s. All these machines should also be
connected to the network where possible, so that all reports c an be seen by the patient’s
doctor /specialist immediately. More importantly, all current and past dat a of each patient will be
analysed on the go by an intelligent software and the likely cause s of the ailment will be suggested to
the doctor . This will help the doctors to treat their patients faster and better.
In the waiting area of patients, the patients should be able to use their mobile devices by connecting to
the free Wi -Fi network of Utopimed. This service can be used by them to connect to the Internet as
well as to request and receive medical certificates from the doctor. Doctors do not issue or sign the
medical certificates directly but the system does it automatically.
In addition to the abovementioned features that every medical cent re of Utopimed has, the Melbourne
medical centre has the managing director, an accountant, a secretary and an IT manager. They are
located in an open office and they should be provided with a computer and a telephone for each, and a
photocopying/printing m achine common to all. Because of the high confidentiality, integrity and
accountability (CIA) of patients’ records, the managing director does not support a cloud -based
Using the top -down network design methodology, you are to design the enterpri se network of
Utopimed. Wherever possible, you should find all medical equipment which can be networked. There
is no need to make any assumptions to design the network for Utopimed and any such attempts are
discouraged. Each step of your network design sho uld clearly explain and justify how you satisfy the
business and technical goals.

or organisation without written permission from CQUniversity, Australia .
