Unit 1 Exercise 1
IP Addressing Scenario
First off when preparing to set up the network you should plan a design. One data closet containing 150 users is what I would use. All the different software and equipment necessary to cover all network types will be located here.
Subnet range would be 145 from 146. Network number being 144. When discussing IP classes this would be a class b due to the number of hosts.
In the case of IP address assigning (whether dynamically or statically) I would consider choosing static. I would only say this because not only are they easy to use and less expensive, the maintenance is much easier as well.
I would probably use multiple networks or subnets in case you wanted to expand the size of the IP addresses later on. Also, if you keep it small, that is all you have to work with, there is no room for expanding which is good.
Most commonly systems that we use can work well with DHCP so that should not be a problem. Also some systems will need host files, you should have many domain and DHCP servers. While using high end switches for DHCP make sure you have a few windows servers since they will help with troubleshooting. You also want to make sure that you keep some extra space in these networks for different devices.
