Feasibility Study

Situation in which The Project Exist. This proposal is designed for data
communication network to serve the Engr. Tecson Institute of Technology
education system. Engr. Tecson Institute of Technology is a newly erected school
building and approved a funding sufficient to provide enough equipment for the
Information Technology Department.

Network Scope. The proposed network is designed to serve Information


Technology Department and other Services Department of the school. The school
has Administrative Department, Accounting Department, Registrar and Student
Assistance Department. Note that this network does not serve instructional needs
of students; other resources have been allocated for that purpose. This network is
for administrative purposes and is specifically designed to be independent of
student computing facilities.

Objectives of the Network. The network is designed to achieve several


specific business/operational objectives.
1. Secure Services: The main objective of the network is to provide secure
administrative computing service for the Information Technology
Department and other services department of the school. It is designed to be
functionally and physically isolated from access by people not employed by
the Engr. Tecson Institute of Technology education system so as to minimize
the risk of unauthorized use.
2. Integration and Update: Since the school is newly erected and need to
have a LAN that supports connections and interactions between different
departments, this proposal describes a WAN that will support these LAN
needed and to support productive collaboration throughout the system.
3. File Sharing and User Restrictions: The network is designed for full
access of the Executive Office to all the files of the school. Sharing and
accessing of files can only be done within each department and will restrict
to others to maintain security.

4. Versatile Information Processing: The network will enable users to retrieve,


process, and store ASCII and non-ASCII text, still graphics, audio, and video
from any connected computer.
5. Scalability: The design is scalable so that more each department can be
added as funding becomes available without having to redo the installed
network.

Intended Users. The primary user of the network will be the head of the school,
two executive secretaries of the head of the school, five personnel on the
Information Technology Department, three personnel on the Student Assistance
Department, three employees and five personnel on the Accounting Department,
three personnel on the Registrar and Faculty Members and the students and publics
are the secondary users of the network in that they will receive information
provided by the network, but secondary users will not have a direct access on to
the network.

Design Assumptions. The design of the network assumes the following:


1. The school network has a firewall that will protect all information coming
and going on the network and no one can easily access all these information.
2. The Telephone and DSL connection already exists within the building; the
data communication network is the only concern of this design.

II.

NETWORK NEEDS ANALYSIS

Data Types. The types of data served by the network will be reports, bulletins,
accounting information, personnel profiles, and web pages. The majority of the
data will be text (ASCII and non-ASCII), but there will be some still graphics and
possibly a small amount of voice and video (primarily for PC-based
teleconferencing).

Data Sources. Data will be created and used at all end stations on the network.
The data will be produced by software applications in Windows 2000, primarily
Dream Weaver and Office 2000 Professional (Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint,
and Outlook). Other data sources to be supported on at least a limited basis will
Windows 2000 Accessories (Paint, Notepad, etc.), NetMeeting, Media Player, and
PhotoShop.

Numbers of Users and Priority Levels. . The users will be the head of the
school, two executive secretaries of the head of the school, five personnel on the
Information Technology Department, three personnel on the Student Assistance
Department, three employees and five personnel on the Accounting Department,
three personnel on the Registrar and Faculty Members and the students and publics
are the secondary users of the network in that they will receive information
provided by the network, but secondary users will not have a direct access on to
the network.

Transmission Speed Requirements. The network is to be transparent to the


users. Thus, remotely executed applications, file transfers, and so forth should
ideally appear to operate as quickly as processes executed within an end-station.
Interviews with users to ascertain their needs and expectations indicate that an
average speed of 10 Mbps within each LAN and 5 Mbps per user between LANs
will more than support the needed performance.

Storage Requirements. Storage requirements need to be large enough to


accommodate all student, teacher, and state data (note: student data are data about
students, not data generated by students). Interviews and observations of users
present and anticipated storage requirements indicate that each user will need an
average of 100 MB of server space (in addition to secondary storage on local PCs);
the maximum estimated server-side storage requirement per user is about 1 GB.
Additionally, the network operating system will occupy about 500 MB on each

LAN server. Taking price-performance issues into account, each PC will have a
minimum storage capacity of 10 GB, each LAN server will have a minimum
storage capacity of 20 GB. A main data server in the State Office will have a 36
GB capacity.

Reliability Requirements. In keeping with user expectations and industry


standards, both the LANs and the WAN are expected to operate at 99.9% uptime
and an undiscovered error rate of .001%.

Security Requirements. A firewall will be used so unauthorized users will be


restricted. Part of the security will be Users accounts and Passwords that will give
limited access. There will be different access capabilities for network managers
and users.

Existing Network. There is no existing network.
