This project was a culmination of two years of study at ITT-Technical Institutes\'s Bessemer, AL campus for an Associates degree in ITCNS (Information Technology Computer Network Systems). It was a team project of 7 members with the goal of designing a network solution for a fictional medical practice consolidation of 5 doctors in a company named Radiant Medical Services.

Purpose </p> <ul><li>Resolve five doctors issues </li></ul> <ul><li>Provide better service to patients </li></ul> <ul><li>Zero impact to normal business operations </li></ul> <p> 4. Project Context </p> <ul><li>The doctors at Radiant Medical Services desire network access to all office locations. </li></ul> <ul><li>Another requirement is an upgraded system allowing seemless access to patient medical records. </li></ul> <ul><li>The doctors office hours are 7am-9pm daily depending on when the doctors in. </li></ul> <ul><li>With this new upgraded system they shall need to increase their staff to allow for projected growth. </li></ul> <ul><li>Physical security must be provided in addition to complying with current HIPPA laws. They also need a backup plan for disaster recovery on the central site. </li></ul> <p> 5. Project Deliverables </p> <ul><li>Each office will need a LAN design that will be incorporated into the WAN design.
