Assume you work for a university that wants to set up a WAN between the buildings on its main campus.

Create a 5- to 7-page plan for your WAN proposal.

Your plan should include the following:

1.     Discuss the type of infrastructure that needs to be in place.

2.     Determine what methods of transmitting data packets will be used.

3.     Compare and contrast the types of switching that will be used (e.g., packet, circuit, message, cell relay, frame relay, ATM)

4.     Determine whether or not you should incorporate newer technologies like FDDI, SONET, or SMDS and explain your reasoning.

5.     Explore the protocols that are relevant to your WAN.

6.     Provide a critical analysis of your recommendations and articulate the potential risks involved or other considerations that may be necessary to implement them. Justify and support with the literature.

7.     Formalize and prioritize your recommendations into an actionable plan. Support your answers with at least two scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included. Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style.
