Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Androsia Superior Fabrics has operated its business in New Providence for the last twenty years. Over the past ten years, this fabric company has accumulated significant capital and is considered one of the local industry leaders in wholesale and retail fabric sales. As a result Androsia Superior Fabrics is looking to expand its business internationally. However, the fabric company did little to take advantage of the modern computer network infrastructure that makes running a professional business easy. For example, Androsia Superior Fabrics employs a computer system that can best be described as a "Sneaker Network". The company still uses legacy software and hardware devices that are not suitable for the efficient operation of a modern business company. To further complicate matters, Androsia Superior Fabrics recently hired a Marketing and Sales Representative to help boost the company's capital locally, as well as prepare them for their international expansion. However, the Marketing and Sales Representative quickly became frustrated by the company's lack of technological infrastructure. Being experienced with working with modern computer software and hardware tools, she frequently made strong recommendations to the owners and managers as to the need and benefits of upgrading to a modern computer network. Androsia Superior Fabrics Chief Executive Officer soon realised that in spite of his company's tremendous success, productivity, customer satisfaction and especially profit margins could experience exponential growth with equipment upgrade and the implementation of an appropriate computer network infrastructure. Consequently, Androsia Superior Fabrics has solicited the services of ML-DD IT Consultants to assess their current IT infrastructure, provide a comprehensive upgrade and implementation strategy for the network software and hardware design and installation, as well as considerations for security, scalability, network maintenance and management. This upgrade task lies solely on the responsibility of ML-DD IT Consultants. That is, to design and install the upgraded network for Androsia Superior Fabrics' two New Providence branch locations, in addition to the prospective international locations in the United States (Miami, Atlanta and New York) ...read more.

The company will employ several branch offices, connected through Wide Area Network (WAN) connections. The facilitation of remote access and a presence on the Internet will require standardization of core components in order to ensure a stable, reliable and secure network. We here at ML-DD IT Consultants have considered Cisco to be that brand for the company's core hardware components. Yet before the design of the company's international network expansion was drafted, an overview of their proposed international employee organizational chart had to be taken into account. Overviews of the international proposed expansion and the organizational chart are detailed below. International Proposed Expansion Overview International Organizational ChartU.S. Overview International Organizational ChartU.K. Overview The following sections outline our recommendations for various aspects of the network. Cabling The first item we considered for the expansion was the cabling. We will start with a dedicated DS-3 or T3 line coming into the building. ...read more.
