You are a consultant working with an architectural firm that has just merged with
another team of architects and construction project managers. The original New York
office housed: 5 architects,
3 construction project managers,
3 executives and business managers,
3 administrative (HR, Finance & Accounting, Sales & Marketing, etc.) staff
1 receptionist/office assistant When the merger is completed, there will be five (5) offices located in New York, Miami,
San Diego, Seattle, and Las Vegas.
The combined offices will have: 17 architects,
13 construction project managers,
7 executives and business managers,
12 administrative (HR, Finance & Accounting, Sales & Marketing, etc.) staff
5 receptionists/office assistants. All of the managers and staff work in the various offices, but 25 architects and
construction project managers also work remotely when they are at construction sites
located throughout the United States and Canada.

When remote, the architects need to be able to access, download, and upload
architectural drawings and the associated documents on a daily basis. The construction
project managers must have real-time access to all financial and accounting
documents, client records and daily schedules. The CIO has reminded you that they
are required to meet Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB) and Right to Financial Privacy Act
requirements for protecting client financial information.
You, as a telecommunications/communications consultant, have been asked to design
the telecommunications network to support this new multi-location company. Others
on the team (not you) will develop the applications and databases. Your task is to
identify the requirements and design a network solution that will meet those
requirements (including security and privacy requirements). Page 2 of 5 IFSM 370 Project 5: Final Assessment Paper Instructions The Deliverable

merged architectural firm. Your paper should:

2. Identify the information that is to be protected and the related security
3. Identify the types of network(s), components, devices and equipment that would
be involved in meeting the needs of the stationary offices and the mobile
architects and construction project managers
4. Provide a network design diagram that clearly shows an appropriate network
configuration to meet the requirements, with components and locations properly
5. Explain the benefits of the proposed network solution
Your deliverable will be a 3 – 5 page paper (MS Word document). The page
requirement includes illustrations or diagrams, but does not count the cover page and
Works Cited page.
The paper is to be prepared using the APA format. At least three (3) professionally and
