The network consists hardware and software components and other components to keep the company safe. A common network that Jay’s company will need are routers, switches, firewalls, load balancers, SANs, and Domain Name System (DNS). The router and switches will allow the systems to communicate. Jay needs to ensure that the routers have spare capacity after the deployment to cope with projected growth and usage. The switches will connect to the system within the network. Both running at capacity tend to induce escalating bottlenecks. This will affect how long it takes for the clients to submit messages to the servers on different networks, Jay needs to make sure he is up to date with the router and switch because it can cost greatly if he does not.

Networking communication, such as the intranet and Internet, provides a collaboration platform that allows business employees to share and edit documents and projects across the organization. Successfully introducing these components into the widget company will make business a lot easier to manage and will help increase productivity.
The new hardware and software networking systems would also be beneficial to this organization because a database with a large storage capability as well as having a timely running process would improve day to day operations of this organization. However, important consideration would have to be given to improvements on security issues, focusing on unauthorized access detection via the Web and at the organizational level.
Abstract -This paper addresses the internal and the external security challenges in organizations that implements wireless networks. Distributed security is designed to provide a more secure data communication among faculty members, staff and students. A description of the technique used to protect and keep PC 's up and running is illustrated with applications.
Our company has just over 120 employees, with approximately one third of the employees being remote, and a large sales team that travels more than 50% of the time. We have a single network administrator to support the entire company, and unfortunately due to conflicting schedules I was not able to interview him as originally planned. However, I was able to interview one of our Integration Managers, Nick Dixon, who confirmed for me that our office uses a LAN, with wireless access points for in office employees and Virtual Private Network (VPN) access for remote employees and those who travel. Regrettably, Nick was not familiar with all the equipment specifications, nor could he confirm things like speed, but he did share he knows we have one server currently, our VPN client is Cisco AnyConnect and there is an upgrade planned this year to support our company’s planned employee growth over the next 3 years. Per Nick, our network is primarily used for file sharing, internet access and services, and resource sharing of hardware and software. Nick also said, “Our network is crucial to ensure our employees have the tools needed to do their work, and to effectively communicate with each other.” Without our network, we would not be able to have remote employees, nor would we be able to afford all necessary hardware and software to do business and stay competitive. Additionally, Nick pointed out that we maintain a network for our customers, since our product is provided as a hosted application. We manage this secured LAN, via VPN, for our customers by outsourcing servers and storage through a third party company called
Navy/Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) program was basically designed for replacing the dozens of the Navy as well as Marine Corporation’s computer networks into a centralized managed setup through a single conductor. The main objective was to make an intranet that is secure, centralized, as well as foster universal access to integrated data, voice, and video communication; removal of any kind of network impediments; increase productivity, and elimination of interoperability issues. For the purpose, contract based on performance was signed with Electronic Data Systems Corporation (EDS). The initial cost of the project was estimated at $6.9 billion. The NMCI project performance was not as expected as it was found that NMCI has met only 3 of the pre-defined 20 performance targets. To get insight into the reasons of
Mr. Green has decided to implement a network within his small business. This is a good choice in moving forward with his growing operations and size. He has several questions, and already has a few opinions about how he will go about this implementation, including both the software and hardware involved. My job as a private computer consultant will be to clarify some of the common misconceptions made by Mr. Green, and ensure that his network implementation will allow him to reach the goals he has as a small business owner.
In today’s high-tech ultra-fast paced world, there can be no debate as to the importance of personal computers. Personal Computers control virtually every aspect of our daily lives. Businesses, regardless of their size, have local area networks, company Intranets and high-speed wide area networks. Billing, inventory and invoicing would be impossible without help from our Personal Computers. Stocks, bonds and commodities are traded in the markets around the world entirely by computer. The Banking industry relies enormously on Personal Computers for every transaction. Communicating without email, fax transmissions and other forms of computer aided information transfers would be

In order to succeed today, organizations that are competing in global markets are increasing rapidly. The increased use of technologies such as the Internet, intranets, and extranets will definitely revolutionize how businesses will operate and how they will use computers to compete. The Internet and related technologies and applications have changed the ways companies operate their businesses processes and activities. For example, companies can network their offices and share data to be more effective and efficient. However, excessive use of the Internet, intranets, and extranets also create intense
CHANGE is the only constant in the relationship between information systems and organizations. As technology evolves and changes, its introduction into organizations requires changes in the firm 's infrastructure and the services it can provide to its employees, customers, and suppliers.
An information technology (IT) strategic plan incorporates all components in an organization relevant to the administration of technology including cost, human capital, management, hardware and software management, vendor management, risk management and all other considerations in the enterprise IT environment. This comprehensive roadmap is used by IT professionals and leaders as a directive for setting an organization’s future technology objectives. (TechTarget, 2015).
The advent of computers has revolutionized the workplace and redefined operational practices. The use and deployment of computers, computer systems and information technology (IT) applications in every aspect of business is now commonplace. The recent application and adoption of Web-based, information and telecommunication technologies has force-multiplied the capabilities and benefits of computers. The importance of computers in business cannot be overstated.
ICT usability of resources increases in the early 1960s, but it was not until the 1980s that the first commercial products emerged and defined as target computers or generations of grid computers. They all are intend to use maximum disposable resources, to reduse this those computers are unused. And the final goal is to invent a computer which is much more efficient with strong performance, and to be more precise, with having a separate level of software, which is supposed to divide the tasks into several parts and locate them into several computers. It ususally concernes in a large number of computers which are in different organisations connected into as virtual organisations. The advantage of this type of organisations are recognised in improving efficiency by truly small alterations.
