please develop 4 to 6 pages with apa format and references and you can chose any one option

I’m trying to study for my Writing course and I need some help to understand this question.

Option 1

You have been hired by a small company to install a backbone to connect four 100base-T Ethernet LANs (each using one 24-port hub) and to provide a connection to the Internet. Develop a simple backbone and determine the total cost (i.e., select the backbone technology and price it, select the cabling and price it, select the devices and price them, and so on). Prices are available at www.datacommwarehouse.com, but use any source that is convenient. For simplicity, assume that category 5, category 5e, category 6, and fiber-optic cable have a fixed cost per circuit to buy and install, regardless of distance, $50, $60, $120, and $300, respectively.

Option 2

You have been hired by a small company to install network infrastructure with shared storage. The office has 15 users. The accounting department, which has one user, does not want to be on the same network as the operation network and does not want to share the storage with any other users.

Please consider the following Technology or some of it:

  • Windows Server and AD
  • DHCP
  • SubNet Mask
  • NAS
  • Print Server

Please provide diagrams of at least two design options. Discuss and compare the advantages and disadvantages of each proposed design and justify your recommendations. Consider cost, security, on-going maintenance, adding new users, printing, log-in, and Internet connection to all users.
