It is recommended that bullet points are included whenever necessary. Use your Problem BasedLearning (PBL) tutorial findings.1. Project Scope and requirements
Attach evidence of an industry visit as an appendix A: Industry visit evidenceInclude points that you have gathered from an industry professional on their existingnetwork.
2. Network design and justification

Draw a network design that you think will be useful in future for the industry that you havevisited. Netwrok should include the following requirements as a miminum:
o 4 routerso 6 switcheso 20 PCs

Suitable IP addressing scheme in tabular form (assume as many hosts as necessary for eachdepartment).Indicate where do you use static routing, dynamic routing protocols (name the protocols,RIP, EIGRP, OSPF etc.), Access Control List (ACL) as per the network preferences. Justify your

3. Network configurationConfigure your network using Packet Tracer. Write report on
Packet Tracer Network diagram – Copy diagram from your simulatorSwitch configurationRouter configuration
Host configurationAccess point and server configuration guidelines.
4. Timeline and Budget estimationThis section should include the followings:
Hardware requirements with the specification with costsHuman resources and logistics

Tentative timeline specifications.
5. Demonstration
Individual demonstration of packet tracer in Week 7.Mandotory to demonstrate work-in-progress demonstration in week 5 and 6.
