IFSM 370 Project 5: Final Assessment Paper Instructions Introduction
This is an individual project. Using the case study below, develop a 3 – 5 page paper
that is well organized and provides specific answers to each part of the assignment.
The document must be complete and demonstrate that you can apply what you have
learned in the course. The deliverable should also demonstrate that you can meet the
course outcomes.
The completed Final Exam Paper deliverable is due by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on the
due date shown in the Course Schedule. See the Additional Information section of the
syllabus for the penalty for late or missed assignments and projects.
This assignment is valued at 15% of the course grade. Case Study
You are a consultant working with an architectural firm that has just merged with
another team of architects and construction project managers. The original New York
office housed: 5 architects,
3 construction project managers,
3 executives and business managers,
3 administrative (HR, Finance & Accounting, Sales & Marketing, etc.) staff
members, and
1 receptionist/office assistant When the merger is completed, there will be five (5) offices located in New York, Miami,
San Diego, Seattle, and Las Vegas.
The combined offices will have: 17 architects,
13 construction project managers,
7 executives and business managers,
12 administrative (HR, Finance & Accounting, Sales & Marketing, etc.) staff
members, and
5 receptionists/office assistants. All of the managers and staff work in the various offices, but 25 architects and
construction project managers also work remotely when they are at construction sites
located throughout the United States and Canada.

When remote, the architects need to be able to access, download, and upload
architectural drawings and the associated documents on a daily basis. The construction
project managers must have real-time access to all financial and accounting
documents, client records and daily schedules. The CIO has reminded you that they
are required to meet Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB) and Right to Financial Privacy Act
requirements for protecting client financial information.
You, as a telecommunications/communications consultant, have been asked to design
the telecommunications network to support this new multi-location company. Others
on the team (not you) will develop the applications and databases. Your task is to
identify the requirements and design a network solution that will meet those
requirements (including security and privacy requirements). Page 2 of 5 IFSM 370 Project 5: Final Assessment Paper Instructions The Deliverable
Define the requirements and then design an appropriate network that will support the
merged architectural firm. Your paper should:
1. Analyze the given case and provide a clear set of requirements for the network
solution
2. Identify the information that is to be protected and the related security
requirements
3. Identify the types of network(s), components, devices and equipment that would
be involved in meeting the needs of the stationary offices and the mobile
architects and construction project managers
4. Provide a network design diagram that clearly shows an appropriate network
configuration to meet the requirements, with components and locations properly
labeled
5. Explain the benefits of the proposed network solution
Your deliverable will be a 3 – 5 page paper (MS Word document). The page
requirement includes illustrations or diagrams, but does not count the cover page and
Works Cited page.
The paper is to be prepared using the APA format. At least three (3) professionally and
academically credible external sources (other than the textbook and other materials
provided in the course) must be used, and citations and references must be in the APA
format. The online textbook, course models and other course materials should be used
and referenced using the APA format. Information from your research should be
appropriately incorporated into your written work in your own words. Extensive use of
direct quotes is not permitted.
