Research how to design a Local Area Network (LAN). (Hint: Look for network design checklists.)
Include diagrams for LANs in your research, reviewing at least five.
Create a diagram of the LAN or Wide Area Network (WAN) that identifies the following:
- Hardware components
- Environment or context (Who is using the LAN and for what.)
- Network protocols used
- Network processing methods
- Key factors that ensure reliable and consistent data and functioning networking systems
Note: Create diagrams with MicrosoftÂ® VisioÂ®, MicrosoftÂ® PowerPointÂ®, or another software application approved by your Instructor. Use call outs as needed to identify items and provide explanations.
