Assignment Background Information
This project will provide support for High-Definition IP cameras for DeVry’s campus network.
In Phase 1, you designed a network switching infrastructure that supported both the existing data traffic, as well as additional camera traffic, according to requirements. In Phase 2, you will create standards and provide a configuration template for implementation teams to use in future deployments.
Phase 2 Assignment
As the network engineer, you have been asked to standardize network configurations across the Devry University campus.
This week, your manager has scheduled a meeting to discuss with you specific configuration requirements based on camera density and traffic patterns, standards that you…show more content…

Standardized Configurations across the Network
NETW206: Introduction to Switching
In the last week, we just got an idea about the network configuration which we are going to implement in the organization. As per the requirement, we have to implement 150 cameras in the network. So we have to have huge bandwidth in our network to transfer the data from 150 cameras. By implementing the technology called Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN), we can save the bandwidth of our LAN.
VLAN means a group of devices on one or more logically segmented LANs (configured by use of management software), enabling devices to communicate as if attached to the same physical medium, when they are actually located on numerous different LAN segments. VLANs are based on logical instead of physical connections and thus are tremendously flexible.
There are two types of VLANs.
1. End-to-End VLANs
2. Local VLANs
The term end-to-end VLAN refers to a single VLAN that is associated with switch ports that are widely dispersed throughout an enterprise network on multiple switches. A Layer 2 switched campus network carries traffic for this VLAN
