Create a network design for a fictitious organization using the scenario and task below.
Scenario
Dreamz Inc. develops software and learning solutions for clients worldwide. The main office of the organization is located on six floors of a building in Chicago where hundred users occupy each floor. While the first floor houses the corporate office, the other floors house the administrative, finance, human resources (HR), engineering, marketing, information technology (IT), and research departments. All users need e-mail, file and print, and Internet services.
To provide these services, the organization has ten servers that are used as LAN, proxy, and database servers. The users in the finance and HR departments require sufficient bandwidth and access applications from an Oracle server. This server is accessible only to users in the finance and HR departments; and these users can also access the server from the Internet. Dreamz Inc. is also connected to the Internet from the same network and has web and e-mail servers hosted for Internet access.
With expanding business, Dreamz Inc. has setup three branch offices in St. Louis, Detroit, and New Jersey. These three branch offices need to be connected to the main office and other branch offices. A fourth office at San Francisco comprises a network of five users and requires a single Internet connection.
Tasks
As the network manager for the organization, you need to design the networks for connecting various branches of the organization.
You also need to study the requirements of each branch of the organization. In addition, you need to ensure that the network uptime is 99% with a downtime of not more than five hours.
Recommend a network model and give reasons for your selection.

A picture, screenshot, or link to the visualization.
A description of what data it visualizes and what each encoding represents.
Your overall impressions of the visualization—why did you choose it for this assignment?
A critique of the methods it uses, including the visual attributes used for each encoding, and suggestions for what could be improved.
This essay should be 1—2 pages in length, double-spaced, and should be grammatically correct, but it does not have to be formally/academically written. Write it in “business-casual.

Class Diagrams and Model View Patterns
After initiating your software project, you can start modeling and designing the proposed project. In this assignment, you will learn and practice using techniques and tools for understanding requirements and defining what your system should be able to do.
After you have finished developing the project proposal, you need to start developing the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), class diagrams, and Model View Controller (MVC) architecture patterns.
In the previous assignment you were asked to develop a company’s e-commerce website, for which you determined the system requirements. For this assignment, you will complete the following tasks for phase 2 of this project:
Develop a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) for the project using MS Visio.
Develop class diagrams for each entity.
Develop the appropriate Model View Controller (MVC) architecture patterns.
Provide a summary that explains whether you want to apply the refactoring concepts in your existing project. Provide support for your decision within your summary.
This course requires the use of Strayer Writing Standards. For assistance and information, please refer to the Strayer Writing Standards link in the left-hand menu of your course. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
Include charts or diagrams created in MS Visio. The completed diagrams or charts must be placed into the Word document before it is submitted.
The specific course learning outcome associated with this assignment is:
Develop Work Breakdown Structures, class diagrams, and Model View Controller architecture patterns for software development projects.

This is the first of a series of five sequential assignments (the course project

This is the first of a series of five sequential assignments (the course project) in which you will act as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of a hypothetical, e-commerce start-up company of your design. A venture capital group has funded this innovative start-up.
The CEO has given you 60 days to deliver an information technology project plan in anticipation of the company relocating to a new facility. Since this is a start-up company, currently no building or technology infrastructure exists to support the business. All information technology (hardware and software) must be implemented in a hosted solution, an on-site solution, or a hybrid model. The CEO expects you to integrate different technologies from a variety of partners and incorporate industry best practices to develop the company’s technological systems.
