Acme Manufacturing

You play the role of a network consultant hired to design a new network for a company called Acme Manufacturing. Acme expects a network design document that includes your recommendations.
The organization is growing and expanding their operations with the acquisition of a plant in China as well as several other offices throughout the United States. The following are the requirements for the new
wide area network.
The network should be designed using all new equipment.
The design document must recommend the types of lines that should be used for each location (i.e. Ethernet, fiber, satellite, and so forth).
There are multiple departments that must be grouped logically to address security. Locations:
o Headquarters—Atlanta, Georgia
Houses corporate operations, marketing, administrative staff, and accounting
o Engineering—Atlanta, Georgia (across the street from the headquarters building office) Houses sales and engineering
o Distribution offices—Chicago, Phoenix, and New York
Each distribution office has a small sales staff as well as administrative staff.
o Plant facility—China
Weekly meetings are held in the corporate conference room at headquarters, with people attending from multiple locations, including China, New York, Chicago, and Phoenix.
