You have been
recruited to design a network for a drama and dance school. Dana School of
Dance and Drama currently uses a paper-based system for recording attendance
and the payments made for each of the classes. Parents of the children pay cash
or cheque each week and their attendance card is updated by hand, showing the
payments they have made. Some children stop attending classes and need deleting
from the list but there are always new recruits and currently the school roll
is full with a waiting list.
The current paper
based system is never accurate. When the children are entered for any exams the
information is collated by hand and then submitted to parents and the awarding
body separately. All of this work is very time consuming for the owner Dana as
she needs to check carefully that the exam entries are accurate and all the
other figures are correct.
Dana has heard that
other dance and drama schools are moving to online payments and recording of
student information and she feels this would be good for her business. The
business will have at least two standalone PCs but they will also have roaming
ipads/laptops that they will need to connect to the network. She has also heard
about cloud storage and applications but does not know whether these are
suitable for her business. The school also wants to offer parents free wifi
whilst they are waiting for their children to finish the classes. The school
will need application software that will enable it to record student details,
send emails/letters, record payments, record exam results and use mailmerge.
The school also wants you to consider security issues which will allow it to
share files, printers and communications. Staff would also like remote access
to the network when they are not in the dance school, although most of the
components will be in a fixed location within the school. The school will need
to be able to stream audio and video during their lessons and keep a record in
line with copyright legislation. You have been asked to design a wired and
wireless network which will be suitable for the dance school.
The owner of Dana
Dance and Drama School has asked you to design a network that the dance school
will be able to use to move more of their business online.
Produce a design
brief which outlines the design of a structured network to meet the design
brief which includes:
LO1 and LO2 Assessment
criteria, 1.2, 1.3, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4
Dana is pleased
with your design brief and she has asked you to build the network to meet the
client brief. Keep a log showing how you
have created the network with photographs/screenshots to show the development.
Now that the
network has been designed and built you will need to test it against a test
plan and the client brief. Create a test plan which identifies testing
objectives, testing criteria and use this to test the built network. Keep copies of the test results from the
Make any amendments
to the network based on your testing.
Now that the
network is complete, Dana has asked you to produce a reflective report on the
designed and built network. Produce a report which:
criteria 1.1, 1.4
criteria AC3.3, 3.4
Guidelines for assessors
The assignments submitted by learners must
achieve the learning outcomes and meet the standards specified by the
assessment criteria for the unit. The
suggested evidence below is how learners can demonstrate that they have met the
1.3, 2.1, 2.2,
The learner must produce a design plan which designs a network for the
dance and drama school
The learner will need to identify the different hardware/ software/
devices/ operating system that would be needed to support this network and
they will then evaluate each of these components and justify why they have
recommended them for use in the network.
The learner will assess the different methods that would be used for
managing mobile devices on wireless networks as the client has said that they
have ipads that are used by staff and also have mobile devices that will be
connected by parents.
The learner will analyse the business needs and will look at resource
utilization and security issues and maximise sharing of resources across the
network considering bandwidth, availability and application connectivity.
The learner will need to produce at least two different solutions for
solving the problem, evaluating each of the solutions they have identified to
meet the design brief. The learner will develop viable alternative solutions
to meet the design brief and then he/she will justify their choice.
Having received approval for the design brief, the learner will now
need to build the network to meet the client brief and their design
The learner should keep a build log which shows some of the
problems/issues that have occurred and how they have been overcome.
Photographs and/or an observation record would be useful here.
The learner will need to create a test plan which can be used to test
their network against the client brief and their design plan. The learner
will use the test plan to test the network which has been built.
The learner will produce a reflective report which evaluates the rules
of network protocols that will apply to the network that they have designed
The learner will include an analysis of the different tools that are
available to manage the network and he/she will evaluate performance issues
of the built network against the client brief. The data from this can be
taken from the test plan. The learner will recommend security requirements to
keep the network safe and secure whilst allowing the staff remote access.
