IS3120 Final Project: Network Design Proposal

NCIF is an industry leading research and development firm consisting of eight (8) regional offices in seven (7) countries, including the United States, Germany, Africa, India, Australia, Brazil, and China, with eleven(11) district or branch offices, consisting of 225,000 employs worldwide. NCIF resides in Hopkinton, MA (USA).
NCIF’s network has been designed in adherence with the latest IEEE 802 series of standards. In keeping with these standards NCIF has installed and configured a Local Area Network (LAN) using the IEEE 802.3 Series of standards and a Wireless LAN (WLAN) using the IEEE 802.11 Series of standards.
NCIF’s network architecture consists of a client-server configured Local Area Network (LAN) based on a Gigabit Ethernet Star Topology or 1000 Base-X IEEE 802.3 Standard with Carrier Sense Multiple Access/Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) and a Storage Area Network (SAN), using Category 5e cabling –tested in accordance with ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B specifications for 1000Mb/s data transfer rates.
In order to anticipate future growth and keep network traffic to a minimum, NCIF has configured, one Class B network sub classed into several smaller networks based on department/job function at each regional and remote site – implementing the dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) in order to assign each terminal a unique IP Address – separating each department into Zones or Segments designed to mitigate risk management and provide increased security.
This is accomplished by assigning like-resources a specific IP range and VLAN. Each VLAN ends with a router/firewall interface designed to manage basic network access decisions in accordance with local Security Policies and Practices. This type of zoning enables NCIF to assign specific access rules and restrictions to each user or terminal based on their…...

...Financial Analysis Team Project Overview: Your team works for a major mutual fund management company. Your boss is the lead fund manager for a technology investment fund specializing in an area set forth below.  Your task is to develop a professional, 10- to 15-minute (maximum) presentation dealing with investment in the technology area of your fund. Because the fund company is paying you "top dollar" to guide investment decisions, your boss expects your presentation to be "top quality." At a minimum, this means that your presentation will make use of computer presentation technology (PowerPoint slides and/or the Internet), appropriate handouts, etc., to present an overview of investment opportunities and strategy in your technology area. Remember, your presentation is to be directed at a fund manager who makes buy/sell decisions based on your recommendations, not at a class. This means that, although there are questions listed below to guide you, your presentation should not be a series of answers to the questions. Instead, it should be a professional presentation dealing with the knowledge and information needed to guide investment policy. Any presenter who makes a statement such as, "The second question we had to answer was ...," will earn a 10-point deduction for his/her team on this project. Deliverable: The team will prepare a 15 slide (max) PowerPoint presentation that emphasizes charts and graphs, keeping text to a minimum. A two-page (max) narrative will...

... respondents ignored it but few of them answered. Among them 3 people said that in terms of pocket money increase they face discrimination as their result is poorer than their siblings and 2 of them said about their poor contribution in parents’ decision making as they are not that much good student. 5. Have you ever heard that your parents saying “look at your bro/sis. How good they are doing in their studies and you are just good for nothing!!”? 40% said very often. So parents are little bias when they compare children with their siblings. 6. Suppose your CGPA becomes 4/4. Do you think this result will change your parent’s attitude towards you? So children think that parents attitude towards them can be changed if they improve their result. 30% said that parents will remain same in spite of their good result. 7. Parents cannot play a fair role to all their children-do you agree with it? Surprisingly 40% agreed that parents can’t play a fair role so here it is more clear that parent might show bias attitude towards better educational performing child. 8. Suppose you have a twin bro/sis. In semester final exam you have got CGPA 3.23/4 and your bro/sis has got 4/4. Your parents are happy for this result. What you think your parents are going to do? None of the respondent said that parents will buy him/her a new mobile rather 55% said that their sibling will get a new mobile. In term of gift giving......

...Date: [2/23/2012] To: Lead Economist Laura From: [Tony Randall] Subject: Final Project Paper After completing this course in Microeconomics, I have learned quite a few things about this subject. It is my hope that what I have learned can be relayed to others and be beneficial to whoever decides to take this subject. I have learned how our economy works on a small scale and a large scale. There are many different kinds of economies in our world and each have an important role for running their respective countries. The first is the Centrally planned economy in which the government of that respective country decides how economic resources will be allocated. The second economy is a market economy in which the decisions of households and firms interacting in markets allocate economic resource. The third and final in the mixed economy in which most economic decisions come from buyers and sellers in markets but where the government plays a major role in allocating resources. our economy is slightly a mixed one .(Hubbard,R& O Brian,A, 2009) Supply and demand is one of the most basic Ideas of economics and it is the core of the market economy. Demand simply means how of a product or service is wanted by a consumer. The quantity demanded is the amount that people are willing to buy at a given cost. Supply represents how much the market can offer. The quantity supplied refers to the amount of a certain good producers are willing to supply when receiving a...

...Financial Project   1. Explain how much additional money you would need to add to your monthly payment to pay off your loan in 20 years instead of 25. The original loan is a 30 year loan in which was giving 5 years ago. This means that there is still 25 years remaining to go. The payment for the twenty-five years remaining is $706.12. The payment for 20 years at the same interest rate will be $788.03 per month, the difference per month would be $81.91 per month. 2. Explain whether or not it would be reasonable to do this is if you currently meet your monthly finance with less than $100 left over. I personally don’t think it would be reasonable to pay the additional $81.91 a month if the monthly finance is less than $100 left over per month. I do think that whenever possible there is the opportunity to pay additional money torts the principle then that what should be done. Pay additional money torts your principle always helps out in the end by lowering the amount that you are borrowing from the creditor. 3. It might be possible to pay the current balance off in 20 years if you refinance the loan at a lower interest rate. The interest rate that you qualify for will depend, in part, on your credit rating. Identified the highest interest rate you could refinance at in order to do this and determine the interest rate that would require a monthly total payment that is less than your current total payment. Also refinancing costs you $2000 up-front in closing...

... read and often re-read the chapters. While I did find that the assignments completed along the way were quite challenging at times, they allowed me to obtain some of the fundamentals needed to push forward. For the completion of this final assignment, I utilized the information provided in our textbook and was able to put the numbers together to draft the first requirement, the Statement of Activities. After completing the Statement of Activities, I was able to use the information from that statement to draft the second required statement, the Statement of Revenues, Expenses, and other Changes in Unrestricted Net Assets. Upon completing the Statement of Revenues, Expenses, and other changes in Unrestricted Net Assets, I was able to finish up the required statements and draft the Statement of Changes in Net Assets. Once all statements were completed I was able to analyze the financial reports to find that Lee College appeared to be on the right track. Although the majority of the assets were tied up in permanently restricted accounts, Lee College was successfully able to cover the expenses of the college for the given period of time. Lee College did not appear to have an abundance of undistributed funds which shows their resources were being used wisely. According to our text, “Not-for-profit organizations lack a residual ownership claim and the organization’s purpose is something other than to provide goods and services at a profit.” “Because significant resources are...

... by a lifetime company warranty, which means the final design must be reliable and robust. This project consists of combining of the shelf technologies together in a new way that can be beneficial to motorcyclists and possibly others. Currently, all the main hardware components of our project have been developed by companies and are readily available for purchase. The circuitry and algorithm for the Suprema fingerprint scanner has been purchased in a stand-alone module. Other major components such as the ATMEL 1 microprocessor and the keypad are also available and have been purchased. A large portion of the overall design is coding an algorithm to implement the desired functions between each hardware block. Other major design criteria are the environmental conditions that the system will be exposed to. This means that the device will be exposed to rain, heat, cold, grease, dirt and many other harmful and possibly damaging factors. The device is designed so it can be mounted almost anywhere on the motorcycle. It is also small enough so it can be hidden under other parts of the motorcycle. The integration of this design required knowledge of laboratory equipment, C programming, circuit level board design and chip level communication. 2.

...Examining Ethernet Changes through the Years ITT Technical institute, CA: IS3120 9/29/2014 The Ethernet and IEEE 802.3 CSMA/ CD LAN technologies are the most popular LAN technology in the world today. Inspired by the ALOHAnet paper written by Norman Abramson is entitled “The Aloha System – Another Alternative for Computer Communications.” It described the development of an innovative radio-based network of computers that came to be known as ALOHAnet. In 1973, Robert (Bob) Metcalfe was a recent Harvard Ph.D. graduate working at Xerox's Palo Alto Research Center (PARC). During a visit with a friend he had came across the article he was inspired to collaborate with David R. Boggs and they put they had put there thought together. So using an IBM Selectric Typewriter with an Orator ball, Metcalfe typed a memo and sketched a quick schematic that would forever change both networking and the world at large. Then the Ethernet was born on May 22, 1973. The Ethernet was actually introduced to the commercial marketplace in 1980 was distinguished by its high speed (10 Mbps). During the 1980s to the 1990s Ethernet LANs dominated due to the ease of implementation and migrations for the LANS base on the 10, 100, and 1000BaseT LAN Standards. The Ethernet LAN technology had solved business challenges and the connectivity of business challenges. By doing this the cost was lower the early introduction of the token ring. Some of the business challenges were: * The need to connect...

Essentially, it should specify detailed arrangements for ensuring the policy is successfully implemented. It is worth mention here that the contents of the safety policy are to be clearly made known to all employees during induction course and job training. The policy statement should be displayed at strategic locations at the workplace. Lastly, the safety policy must be signed by the top management and clearly dated so the periodical review can be easily monitored.
