You are the newly recruited Network Engineer of an eminent movie company called Enclave Films.This company composesmoviesand delivers high quality video to make it download through VividZone company website.The original movie company management has decided to consolidate the contract with VividZoneby adding more efficient staff and appliances. 

Enclave Films is in building Band the web team is positioned in the same building while majority of the administration, sales, accounts and management functions are supported in building A. Both buildings are located in the same premises. Movie company plans to aggregate all their staff and resources in one building. Therefore when adjacent office space becomes available in building A, these groups will be accommodated together. Building A has a reception and a customer area as well. 

About the Network 

The branch network ofEnclaveFilmshas grown without proper planning. The LAN cabling in both offices is Cat5e Ethernet. The office complex provides an Ethernet link between the two buildings. Because of the recent acquisition of VividZone, the addressing and naming of the network are inconsistent. 

The combined network infrastructure has not been optimized or redesigned. It is a flat network design with minimal redundancy. A small wireless LAN is used occasionally by few project managers with laptops and the guests at Building B.  Moviecompany believes that the WLAN may be used frequently since mobile and contract employees of VividZone will require network access. 

Remote access to Enclave Films network is provided through an ADSL internet link terminating in Building A. Currently there are two sets of Enclave Films staff onsite at the stadium in building A. The VividZone provides them office space in their management offices. 

The current network equipment includes:

a)      Two  routers

b)     Three switches

c)      One network and business server

d)     One wireless router

e)      One ADSL modem 

The current network has TWO VLANs.

a)      reception, accounts, and administration. It consists of 12 PCs and 02 printers. 

b)     The Production VLAN in building B serves the production suites and provides networking for the media development and storage. It consists of 09 high-performance workstations, 05 office PCs, and 02 printers. 

The Management expects to enhance the network based on following major criteria:

c)      Data traffic expected to increase by 80%

d)     Possibly consider connecting directly to the VividZone network; must be a fast and reliable connection

e)      High network availability with redundant links and technology

f)      Wireless network access at the stadium and at Building A and Building B

g)     QoS to support video applications
