Wireless Deployment Plan
This assignment consists of two (3) sections: a written Wireless Development Plan, a graphically depicted Wireless Network Architecture, and a Wireless Project Implementation Plan created through the use of MS Project. You must submit the three (3) sections as separate files for the completion of this assignment. Label each file name according to the section of the assignment it is written for.
The use of specific software has been suggested; however, equivalents including but not limited to OpenOffice and Dia are also permitted. If equivalent tools are used, files must be saved and submitted for grading using extensions that are readable by their equivalent Microsoft Windows edition. Assignment submissions that fail to follow this request may result in a reduced grade.
Any network or information system deployment must be carefully and thoroughly planned and implemented. Failures to thoroughly plan the implementation of wireless networks have led to many project failures due to lack of support, technical issues, and security issues. During this course, you have covered many wireless support topics, technical considerations and issues, and security considerations and issues.
Section 1: Wireless Deployment Plan
Required Format (MS Word File)
Write a six to eight (6-8) page wireless deployment plan for an education institution with a single campus but with multiple buildings on that campus.
The wireless deployment plan must include, but is not limited to, the following items:
Wireless Deployment Plan Overview
Purpose and Scope
Wireless Network Equipment and Devices
Wireless Network Device Configuration
Wireless Client Configuration and Access
Wireless Network Staffing, Training, and Support Requirements
Wireless Network Security Requirements
Terms and Definitions
Use at least four (4) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.
Section 1 of your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
Section 2: Wireless Network Architecture
Required Format (MS Visio or equivalent)
Use Microsoft Visio or an open source alternative, such as Dia to develop a network architecture diagram depicting the wireless networking equipment, security devices, and architecture for the corporate wireless network.
Section 3: Wireless Project Implementation Plan
Required Format (MS Project or equivalent)
Use MS Project or an Open Source alternative, such as Open Project to develop a project plan depicting the project tasks, task durations, predecessors, and resources needed to implement the wireless network.
The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:
Analyze the network protocols and security mechanisms in wireless networks.
Evaluate the application of Wireless LANs, MANs, and PANs.
Develop a wireless deployment plan to address and solve a proposed business problem.
Use technology and information resources to research issues in wireless networks.
Write clearly and concisely about wireless computing topics using proper writing mechanics and technical style conventions.
