“Network Size and Verification Tasks” Please respond to the following:
- In small networks, the web of router links is not complex, and paths to individual destinations are easily deduced. However, in large networks, the resulting web is highly complex, and the number of potential paths to each destination is large. Select one (1) local business in your community with which you are familiar and decide if its network would be considered large or small. Specify the primary reasons for your decision.
- After implementing OSPF, a network administrator should verify proper deployment on each router. Determine the verification task that you believe is the most important part of the process, and defend your selection.
“Enterprise Network Design” Please respond to the following:
- Imagine that you work for a business that utilizes an enterprise network design. Determine the major consequences of not achieving high availability in the network. Speculate the manner in which this shortcoming would affect business operations in terms of customer relations and internal communications. Support your response with specific examples of the noted effects on business operations.
- Suggest the way in which you would go about successfully implementing Layer 2 redundancy of devices, modules, and links throughout the network of the hypothetical business above, and determine what types of spanning tree are supported by Cisco Catalyst Switches.
