IT3355 Unit 3 Assignment (August 2019)

IT 3355 Network Architecture

Unit 3 Assignment

Wireless Network Design


Before you begin this assignment, please complete the practice labs and the discussion for this unit.

Then use the Internet and the library to research the assignment topic. You will need at least three recent, relevant, professional resources to support your work.


For this assignment, you will create a wireless network design strategy. The wireless network strategy is the overall umbrella encompassing wireless access controllers (WACs) and wireless access points (APs). The wireless service provider can play a role by connecting these, thereby providing connectivity to the entire network.

Start with the network diagram you created in the Unit 2 assignment. You may want to make some changes depending on the feedback you received from your instructor. Using this diagram, complete the following:

Add a wireless infrastructure to your network diagram.

Include your IP addresses. Calculate and add your IP ranges and subnets into your diagram.

Use Visio or a graphical drawing tool of your choice. Note: Microsoft Visio is provided for your use via MS Imagine. See the Microsoft Software section in the Unit 1 studies for more information.?

Export your diagram to an image and include in the Word document, or copy and paste the diagram into the Word document.

Explain hardware placement, hardware device choices, topology choice, and overall wireless infrastructure decisions.

Explain your IP addressing strategy.

Describe at least three wireless standards that influenced your network structure.

The assignment you submit should be approximately 3–?4 pages in length, including the diagram you create. Be sure your document is professionally written, free of errors, and that your citations and references follow APA guidelines.
