I will deal with the physical and logical design of a LAN by building a network in a test laboratory, consisting of computers, an Appliance Security Appliance (ASA) 5505 firewall and switches. Network will consist of Fiber Optic Cable Modem, Nodes, Communication Media, Networking Devices A security policy will be in place, or updated to reflect the goals of the company. Redundant Firewalls with VPNle Communication media (copper cable to connect to the internet, fiber cable) Switch: Switches connect multiple devices, including computers and printers, on the same network.

They shield data from security threats using technologies such as firewalls and virtual private networks (VPNs). They can even decide which computers get preference over others.
