Your instructor will assign you to a group. Within your group you can set up a group WebEx, chat, skype, or other communication tool to determine how best to complete this case study. Each person will contribute to the collaboration portion to complete this case study. Include the Names of each member on your team and a brief description as to how they participated.
Active participation is expected, but the quality, not the quantity, is the key to creating a successful collaborative learning environment for everyone. Instructional approaches for this course are highly interactive and experiential.
For this week’s case, you be looking at Security issues that deal with outside plant installations in a “real” scenario.
You will be using the class book and Library research as well as the Right of Way manual developed by the city of Burleson, Texas to determine what security issues correspond with the requirements the local jurisdiction has in the case of a new installation of media and make at least 2 recommendations for handling security to complete the installation project. In this example, a city street must be crossed to interconnect two buildings to each other. Therefore, the local jurisdiction does cover Right of Way issues.
Here is the scenario:
You are the network manager for the local school district. Due to growth in the city, one of the elementary schools has run out of classroom space. Across a city street from this elementary school, there is a church that is for sale. The school district is considering purchasing this church as a low-cost way to expand the space in the elementary school. The local-area networks in the two buildings will have to be connected to each other. Due to the school district’s data-security policy, the connection must be made using wired media. To install this media, the city street between the two buildings must be crossed. This crossing will be underground. Here is the relationship of the two buildings.
