Overview of Request for Proposal

The following is a list of Star Medicals major needs as stated in our documentation that Cornerstone Communications received.

Network Design

• Our design team must stay within the regulations regarding network design to remain in compliance with various regulations both local and federally. • The network must be separated into three networks consisting of Private, Private Wi-Fi, and Public Wi-Fi___33. • Each site will have a minimum of 12 touch screen computers and 35 Voice over Internet Protocol phones (VoIP). Along with the previously stated there will be 15 total Tough Books that will be stationary and mobile between the offices. • The network must have the ability and be able to facilitate a growth of double in the LAN. • The five locations will connect to the internet via the central locations network device at the offices wiring closet and forward any requests through that connection. • Each office will have their own Remote Domain Controller (DC) to handle all incoming and outgoing requests. These servers will also act as file and print servers in each location. • The Central location is only location that will have more than one server. The servers located in this location will include a Linux Server, Active Directory (AD)/Email Server and Backup Server. • All computers on the Star Medical network will have their IP addresses set statically and all computers Public network will obtain their IP addresses automatically from a DHCP server.

DHCP Server

• The Central Office will have a DHCP server to hand out IP addresses to the public access point on the Star Medical network. All other IP’s set on the network are static.

DNS and E-Mail

• DNS and e-mail servers will be implemented in a hierarchical manner with all services located on the main server at the Central Office. • All DNS and e-mail servers will be capable to communicate with each other in the event that the master server becomes unavailable. • The E-mail server will have Exchange pre-installed on it directly from the manufacture.

Remote Domain Controller (DC)

• Star Medical will need to have a DC server at each office site to interface with the main DC at Central Office for digital medical records, billing and HIPPA, as well as other functions • All of the DC servers must be accessible by any of the locations at any time. • All communication between offices will be handled through the routers in the central office.

Web Server

• Star Medicals central office will have a web server to host the medical offices website which will direct patients and clients to a magnitude of information that the providers feel to share. • The web server will have a Linux based operating system to help with performance and security.

Application Server

• All computer applications will be housed on the File and printer server at each office location to provide the IT staff with an easy solution to upgrading applications. The application server will host applications such as Microsoft Office 2010 Professional, the medical software used to bill the patients and their insurance companies and other software that is needed to ensure smooth operational functioning of the office.

FTP Server

• An FTP server will be setup to provide Star Medical staff with a quick way to recover missing or corrupt files.

Executive Summary

Cornerstone Communications has recently received a request from Star Medical to implement a network plan to meet the upgrades and potential growth. We believe that we have come up with the most reliable and secure plan to meet your needs at a reasonably low price. In our plan we have included options to provide Star Medical with our professional based on the requirements set before us. We have taken into consideration growth and development of technology and cost. Cornerstone Communications will take on all responsibility of hardware and software installations as well as an effective training plan to give the IT staff at Star Medical the tools they need to monitor and maintain their network.

Assumptions and Constraints

The following list is a few assumptions that Cornerstone Communications has made based the information STAR MEDICAL has presented.

• Star Medical will require cable installation inside of the building and old cabling removed from worksite by Cornerstone Communications. • Star Medical will require physical security of network components and servers. • Star Medical understands cooling will need to be available in each wiring closet. • Star Medical needs new workstations to be purchased and installed. • All computers and servers will have operating systems (Windows 7 Professional, Microsoft Server 2008, and Exchange 2011 already installed on the systems and ready for installation)

If we are incorrect with any of our assumptions we have made a few possible solutions.

• Cornerstone Communications can adjust price to reflect if cabling doesn’t need to be installed or removed from the locations. • Cornerstone Communications can adjust price list to reflect any changes that need to be made, only before installation and ordering has begun.


Cornerstone Communications has developed what is the best solution to tailored to your needs.

• Documentation will show proposed hardware and costs professionally selected options for Star Medical to better suit their budget and needs.

• We will provide a project schedule and implementation timeline to clarify each phase of the project.

• We will identify the network topology and layout. Our main highlights will include the following.

o Fiber optic-multi mode backbone between each building. o Segment LAN at each site into three networks, Public Wi-Fi, Private Wi-Fi and Private. o Successful network connectivity with remote office servers to the Central Office well as Internet connectivity. o Establishment of MDF’s at each location as well as an IDF at the Central Office. o Implementation of an IP subnet capable to meet current needs and to facilitate growth. o Installation of DHCP, DNS, and Application servers at each site. o Each location will have a separate DC server that will directly communicate with the main DC at the Central Office. o The Central Office will include the main DNS server, DNS, IIS, Active Directory, Exchange, Web, Application, and FTP servers.

• A comprehensive backup solution for data and power will be provided

• We will ensure security to the Private LAN as well as a firewall to deny access from any device outside the Star Medical network.

• Cornerstone Communications will present a training plan for the IT support staff for Star Medical to give them the necessary knowledge and tools to monitor and maintain the network.

• Star Medical will have a prototype for display to demonstrate our ability to connect the remote offices to the Central Office.

Project Details

Implementation and Timeline

There are going to be 7 major steps to complete the project. All days are business days.

1. Inspect locations

Verify the current setup and identify the requirements that STAR MEDICAL needs to accomplish before installation takes place. Also to identify the location of the new hardware and verify what is needed.

Diane: West, Darrin: East, Tim: North, Ike: South, Co-op: Central

An estimated 4.5 days will be needed to complete the inspection of all sites.

2. Purchasing and Delivery

7. Support Period:

10 day on call support. Any problems detected during this 10 day period will be corrected by Cornerstone Communications.


Network Topology

Domain Diagram


There is only one domain being used by Star Medical by all five sites. The name of the domain is A domain name is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority, or control on the Internet. Domain names are formed by the rules and procedures of the Domain Name System (DNS). Any name registered in the DNS is a domain name.

Domain Diagram with Site name overview


This diagram is the same as the Domain diagram but with the remote offices labeled and the Central Office is represented by the bigger circle.

STAR MEDICAL Network Overview


All network communications will be handled by the central office, including requests for internet access, Active Directory and anything else that would be offered on the remote servers.

Star Med Central


The Central Office will house the master backup server, the Active Directory/FTP and Linux servers. This office is the central location and houses three servers and routes all network traffic. The application, main DNS, DHCP, Exchange and Active Directory servers will also be located in the MDF.

Star Med North, West, South, East


All of the remote sites have the same layout as the others. Each office will have Wi-Fi access for the public as well as a private Wi-Fi access for the office use only. The locations will also have a file and print server on hand to handle that offices and local jobs and applications. The offices will be connected with a fiber backbone to the Central office which will host all incoming and outgoing traffic for internet.

IP Schema

The IP addressing scheme we chose is designed to make administering the network easier. Each IP address will allow STAR MEDICAL’s IT staff to identify if it belongs on the Public or Private network and what its physical location is. The chart below provides the details.

| |Med East |Med West |Med Central |Med North |Med South |
|Med Public | | | | | |

Security planning for the internal and external STAR MEDICAL network should be as follows.

• A nominal amount of training with the staff will have to be done with regards to physical and logical security. • Physical security will be provided by ADT Advanced security at each location • Logical security should be setup using the firewall for external use and ACL’s, managed switches, and password security for internal security. • Using monitoring programs to the benefit of the offices and to see where problems may rise. • Monitoring tools for service availability and bandwidth management. o MRTG (Multi Router Traffic Grapher) o Email Notification o Barracuda Backup

Active Directory Structure



Active Directory

The domain is made up of one primary domain structure for ease of use for Doctor and other medical staff needing to travel throughout the five locations.
With five locations on one network it will be easy for users to login at any location, view files, excess email, and transcribe medical records. Access to the network thru the private network is also available to authenticated users for research and web-based applications. Active Directory is setup to replicate thru each off site location to remain in sync with the central office domain controller, ensuring a secure dependable network setup.


Microsoft Exchange Server is not only an email server, but it also serves as calendaring software, a contacts manager and to some extent an antivirus, anti-spam filtering software product. Exchange enables users to correspond thru email, setup calendar appointments and meeting with co-workers and save user information to a contact list all from one centrally located application. With exchange a user can look at a co-workers calendar to see when they might be free for a meeting or setup a distribution list of employees that need to receive the same email routinely. These are just some of the useful tools exchange has to offer. On the administrative side, exchange 2003 came with a new featured referred to as the enhanced disaster recovery, which enabled the administrator to bring the server online quicker by allowing the server to send and receive mail while the message stores are being recovered. No down time is seen by the users when administrators use these tools on their networks and in exchange. Email can be setup on a number of devices for the convenience of the user. Some people run desktops, laptops, smartphones, tablets etc. With an exchange server you can sync to all your devices in real time and configure each device individually with rules for downloading from the server or just viewing and keeping it on the server until it’s opened on a different device and so on. Most users that have exchange will use Microsoft office outlook for their email, and when a user is on the go and does not have their own desktop or laptop, they still have the ability to log on the web from a public computer and view email thru OWA, outlook web access. Exchange also interfaces with Active Directory very well, allowing for replication and backup. You can take users directory from Active Directory to setup an email account, thus saving the administrator time and the company money.

Website hosting and development

Star Medical’s website will be hosted from a Linux and server from the Central office. The server will have a Linux and Apache based operating system on it. Linux will be used to host the website due to the following reasons:

• Linux was developed for and the first to do web hosting when the internet first started.

• Linux systems are well known for their ability to run for years without failure, making it great for all small businesses.

• Linux has 24 hour a day security support by the whole world who participates in making a Linux a better system.

• With Linux, there is no commercial vendor trying to lock you into certain products or protocols. Instead, you're free to mix and match and choose what works best for your business.


A web server is a system that stores information and delivers, or "serves," this data when needed. Every website on the Internet resides on a web server. When a user connects to a site, the server sends the data that is displayed on the screen. Several brands of web server systems exist. Apache Web Server has been in service since 1995, and is one of the most widely used.

• Apache Web Server is open source software. This means that the programming that powers the software can be viewed and edited by anybody in the world.

• This open design allows any programmer to create a custom solution based on the core Apache program, or extend the features of the software. Many of these custom extensions have been written and are available for free.

• If the perfect custom feature does not yet exist, it can be easily created.

• Apache is constantly being updated. Many programmers around the world constantly contribute to improvements, which are available to anybody using the web server.

• The open source approach means that users do not have to wait for full versions of the software to be released. Instead, small updates can be installed as soon as they become available.

• Apache Web Server has a large set of powerful features. These core features, combined with the extensions created by programmers around the world, help make the Apache platform competitive even against high-priced rivals.

• Apache has built-in support for a wide range of web programming languages, including Perl, PHP and Python.

• These languages are easy to learn and can be used to create powerful online applications. Apache also includes "SSL" and "TLS" support. These are protocols for sending encrypted data over the Internet, and are important in the development of safe online stores and other applications requiring privacy.


• Free and open-source • Portable across multiple platforms • Allows for easier networking of Windows workstations to computers running other platforms


Linux and Apache Web Server feature a large user support community. Unlike many software companies that handle all program support from one location, Linux and Apache technical support is spread throughout multiple locations, companies, and forums. This distributed model of support allows users to obtain answers to technical questions nearly 24 hours a day, no matter where they are located. By being open source, and is connected to many users who are able to create technical patches and bug fixes very rapidly. As soon as a problem is found, users around the world communicate and contribute solutions. The result of this community support is software that is very stable and well maintained.


Apache Web Server is very portable. This means that it can be installed on a wide variety of servers and operating systems. Apache is able to run on all versions of the UNIX operating system. Linux is supported, as are the Windows NT and Mac OS operating systems. In comparison, Microsoft's own Windows Server typically can be installed only on Windows operating systems. From a hardware standpoint, Apache can be used on any server with an Intel 80x86 series of processor when it is combined with Windows. If Apache is being used on a UNIX or Linux operating system, nearly any processor type is supported. Overall, Apache is one of the most adaptable server systems currently available, and will run in a wide range of technical environments.

Maintenance and Training Plan

Once the project has been completed, Cornerstone Communications will begin the training of doctors, nurses and other personnel at each STAR MEDICAL location. The training will be for the length of 5 days from for a total of 40 hours. Each site will be trained simultaneously from Cornerstone Communications’ design team.

STAR MEDICAL’s IT staff will be trained on the router and switch configurations, IP addressing schemes, all servers and their configurations, troubleshooting techniques, and client node configurations. STAR MEDICAL will also be provided with contact information regarding their WAN connections.

Once training has been completed a support period will begin. This support period will last for 10 business days, 7 days a week 24 hours a day. During this period STAR MEDICAL will be responsible for “digging” into their network to find any bugs or potential problems. Upon the discovery of any problem STAR MEDICAL can contact Cornerstone Communications’ customer support to work out a resolution. All warranty information on hardware will be held by Cornerstone Communications until the expiration of the support period at which time STAR MEDICAL will be solely responsible.

One item to keep in mind is that although we will discontinue responsibility after the support period, Cornerstone Communications is always willing to listen to clients’ problems and give suggestions to help the client reach a solution.

Backup Strategy


The Central Office will house the main backup server. The type of device will be a Dell PowerEdge R420 rack server and redundant cloud back up via a Barracuda backup server. Each office will retain its local information on their own file and print server that will be transferred to the main backup server in the Central office nightly. Each remote server will individually be set up to back up to the main backup server at their designated times.
Medical files including records will be backed up via a company named ADP advanced med. They provide a guaranteed recovery for all files that they backup. Software required to back up the software is provided by the company.

Each office will have a UPS system. The device we have selected, APC Smart-UPS 1500VA LCD RM 2U 120V, has an internal alarm, hot swappable batteries, connects via USB or serial, a 110 minute blackout run time, and 3 year electrical protection, 2 year protections on batteries, and a $150,000 lifetime equipment protection plan.


The Central office’s backup device will run a routine scheduled backup nightly that will pull the data from each individual network attached device (NAS) drive; this will be what has been stored on the file and print server at each location. Along with this data, it will backup Active Directory and the Microsoft Exchange email databases. These are items that we have deemed required for backup and any remaining items are to be discussed and implemented into the daily backup schedule. The latest copy of the data will be pushed through the Barracuda backup system located in the central office and a copy sent to cloud storage.

If by chance there is a disruption in the backup service from a remote location then the backup will be done on a partition on the local file and print server at that location until the disruption is fixed.

All new medical files and medical related files will be backed up automatically to ADP advanced Med cloud servers with a software provided by ADP.

Cost Analysis

Cornerstone Communications has worked hard to make an effective solution for STAR MEDICAL. One difference that you will find with our company is that we prefer to provide our clients with options. In our costs proposal we have given STAR MEDICAL options such as the client workstations, backup solutions, and WAN connections. Each option has been analyzed and determined to fit STAR MEDICAL’s needs within the RFP we received.

Cornerstone Communications bid is a total of $479,226 to give STAR MEDICAL. Cornerstone Communications can help determine what will be the best solution for STAR MEDICAL but overall it is STAR MEDICAL itself that knows what is best. If STAR MEDICAL has any suggestions regarding hardware, software, or WAN connections Cornerstone Communications will be readily available to share ideas and work firmly to meet STAR MEDICAL’s demands as a customer.

Aircon 1200 Btu 18 Mini Split Air Conditioner

Mini Split Systems are ductless systems ideal for spaces where running ductwork is not practical or desirable. Single Zone mini splits include the outdoor unit and indoor air handler only. Copper lines and other accessories sold separately. Single Zone Mini Split Systems are great for rooms where you need extra cooling like kitchens, porches and sunrooms, upstairs bonus rooms or where equipment and electrical devices heat things up. Mini splits are economical to install and provide direct and efficient climate control with the convenience of a remote control. Mini splits are available in heat pump or air conditioning (cooling only) configurations. Mini Splits are often much more efficient than traditional split systems, and you can easily turn the system off when climate control is not necessary. These systems use environmentally friendly and efficient R-410A refrigerant. They are pre-charged.

...Engineering Capstone Senior Design Course Ken Christensen[1], Dewey Rundus1, and Zornitza Genova Prodanoff1 1 2 Abstract A capstone design course is an important component of the senior year curriculum for engineering students and plays a key role in achieving departmental ABET EC 2000 outcomes. In the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of South Florida, we have partnered with industry to have students work in teams on industry-contributed “real world” projects. Industry partners contribute projects, mentor students, give a guest lecture, and provide the opportunity for students to present their project at the industry site. Students work on projects in teams and are given milestones and schedules to follow. The milestones include formal requirements, specifications and design, prototype demonstration, test plan, and final project delivery and presentation. The final presentation includes a project demonstration, user documentation, press release, and a poster that is permanently displayed in the department seminar room. The course includes formal lecture and reading assignments on the development process. A midterm exam covers these topics. Soft topics include discussions on working in teams. Our industry partners stress the importance of students being able to work well in teams. We hope that our experience can serve as a guide for other engineering departments considering industry partnering for their capstone......
