ASSIGNMENT-3 DATA COMMUNICATIONS AND NETWORKS
The steps below might assist you to understand what is expected in Assignment 3. This is a typical situation that you would find yourself in if you are in the IT industry. It is called a system upgrade. The requirements step is critical to your design. If you do not understand what the client wants in terms of security, performance the client will not be happy and will not pay you.

Critical thinking question.
