Practical scenario-based report on switching using the

Cisco packet tracer


The ‘Career Advance’ (CA) is a higher education provider located in Melbourne. Currently, they

are renting three floors of a building in the suburb of Southbank. It has been recently confirmed that

they will move to a new building located in the nearby suburb of St Kilda by the end of next month.

The existing network infrastructure is not efficient and is not secured. There are a lot of complaints

from staff about slow network performance and security issues such as unauthorized access to

administrative documents. The reason for this is in part that the institute currently has only two

networks, one for staff and one for students. There is one router (Cisco 2620XM) connecting both

networks together.

As part of the move to the new location, they are looking forward to putting a more reliable, scalable

and cost-effective network in place.

Project cost is a factor, so these existing components are to be used within the design. They have

8 Cisco 2960 Switches and 1 Cisco 2620XM router. As per Network Manager, only cables are

approved for purchasing.

Below is a breakdown of the number of staff, students and devices by location in the current building.

Staff/Students Level Number

Academics First Floor 5

Students First Floor 50

Below is the topology proposed by the Network Manager. Your job is to create the network plan,

allocate the IP addresses appropriately, configure the network according to the given guidelines and

troubleshoot errors if there are any.


As a staff member of IT department, you have been given the task of re-configuring the whole

network for the newly rented building.

Below listed are the documented tasks for you.

Task 1: Building the topology

Create the network diagram shown in Figure 1 using Cisco packet tracer. Use suitable cable types

when cabling the devices. Label the devices as depicted in Figure 01.

While creating the topology please use the ports listed in Table 1 (below) for connecting devices on

each switch. This will be useful for your future planning of the network.
