CMIT 350 XUMUC Case Study

XUMUC has WAN links in place at their new location in the Houston Region. XUMUC currently has 2 other regional locations, in San Francisco and Denver. Originally, XUMUC was only located in one region (San Francisco). The previous consultant did a poor job with the integration, resulting in a poor IP address scheme. As a result routing tables at the summarization points at the San Francisco campus are very large. In addition, no VLAN structure was developed to isolate broadcast traffic and there has been some concern that the WAN tansport was not able to accommodate the network traffic. Finally, all addresses in the network are statically assigned resulting in high administrative overhead, even when minor changes are implemented. For the next expansion phase, XUMUC would like this changed to lower administrative overhead. There are 4 main departments in XUMUC: sales, finance, human resources, and research and development. For assigning IP addresses you can pick any one from the following network addresses.


Location Number of IP Addresses Required Address Block Assigned Summarized Address
San Franciso 1290
Denver Region
   Denver Campus 441
   Remote Office 1 28
   Remote Office 2 35
Houston Region
   Houston Campus 329
   Remote Office 3 21
