You have been hired as part of the networking team. After completing orientation and training in your first week, your manager calls you into a meeting to discuss your first project.
The university has recently leased a building in Adelphi, Washington. The building will house some offices, classrooms, a library, and computer labs. Security is very important for WUC, as the university must protect students’ and employees’ data, as well as any intellectual property that WUC has on its servers and computers. As a result, IT management would like to take the time to review some proposals on how best to move forward. As a network engineer, you have been asked to prepare a network proposal on how to set up a secure network infrastructure in this new building to support university operations.
After speaking to your manager, you are excited about the project, but you realize you will have a busy schedule. As you write your proposal, you will also have to prepare for the Network+ Certification exam. One of the conditions of your employment at this company is that you obtain this certification within 60 days of being hired. You will have to manage your time wisely, because you will have to take a practice certification test just as you are completing your final project.
