This report is to identify the various network components that will be implemented and in which configuration. It will also identify the specification of each computer for each section of the company and what peripherals will be used.
? The various parts of your organisation that require I. T. support and training are also highlighted in this report. ? It will also focus on which steps should be taken to choose the correct supplier and how the introduction of the new network should be implemented.

Integrated Network Interface – 3Com Fast EtherLink XL 10/100 PCI with Wakeup on LANInput Devices? Enhanced Performance USB keyboard with 7 programmable hotkeys? Microsoft 2-button USB Intellimouse (wheelmouse)Additional Input? CalComp CADPRO Graphic Tablet? The specification of this machine has been chosen with high performance in mind.
Because of the intensive 3D modelling that the designers would be producing, a fast Processor and specialist Graphics Card were fitted. ? The hard drive used has also been chosen for high capacity and spin speed for fast retrieval of large files. ? A large flat panel monitor was also specified for increased viewing which is essential for this type of work and for space saving. ? When choosing the memory I decided for a 1GB PC800 ECC Rambus RDRAM memory module this leaves two RIMM slots free for later expansion. This type of memory has a high bandwidth and runs at the same speed as the 400MHz system bus.
? The Graphic Tablet was chosen because of the increased interface it achieves with CAD programs. For details of information sources see Appendix A 2. 2 Sales Support and Accounts2. 3 Sales Manager 2.
