Due Date Week 7, 30 April 2019 11:55 pm – submit a report on Moodle
Submission
Guidelines
All work must be submitted on Moodle by the due date along with a Title Page.
The assignment must be in MS Word format, 1.5 spacing, 11-pt Calibri (Body) font
and 2.54 cm margins on all four sides of your page with appropriate section headings.
Reference sources must be cited in the text of the report, and listed appropriately at

Academic
Misconduct
 Academic Misconduct is a serious offence. Depending on the seriousness of the
case, penalties can vary from a written warning or zero marks to exclusion from
the course or rescinding the degree. Students should make themselves familiar
with the full policy and procedure available at http://www.mit.edu.au/aboutmit/institute-publications/policies-procedures-and-guidelines/PlagiarismAcademic-Misconduct-Policy-Procedure. For further information, please refer to

Assignment 1 Overview of Internetworking MN503
A case study entitled “TP-LINK Helps Calasanz School Provide Wireless Coverage in Colombia” is
uploaded with the assignment 1 folder, and the link for the case study is provided as an appendix.
Based on your understanding of the case study prepare a report on the proposed wired and wireless
network design for Calasanz School. The report on the proposed design should have the following
contents.
 Project scope
 Challenges
 User-centric design concept
 Project hardware requirements
 Network design in an appropriate simulation software
 Outcomes
 Limitations
 Conclusion
 Demonstration (snapshots of ping connectivity is preferable)
 IEEE referencing style
While designing the wired and the wireless network, please consider Calasanz School has six
departments, namely, Admin, Academic, Human Resource (HR), Finance, IT support and Sports.
