You are a Network Engineer for an IT consulting company

You are a Network Engineer for an IT consulting company. Your supervisor has tasked you with designing a network for your company’s newest client. The client business details are as follows:

50 employees – half Sales office and half Business office users
2 subnets – separate LANs within the office, 30 hosts per subnet (25 employees, 1 printer and 2 servers, and 2 more available addresses)
2 network printers – 1 per subnet
1 connection to the WAN/Internet
1 core router with 2 Ethernet interfaces (1 for each existing subnet) and 1 Serial for WAN
Each subnet using 1 switch for all hosts
Plan for growth for up to 6 subnets, which do not need to be in the diagram

Develop a subnet scheme using the following information:

You have been assigned an IP address and subnet mask: 192.168.111.0 /24. Plan to support two subnets and allow for growth to as many as 6 subnets in the future.
Subnet 1 will be used to provide a range of IP addresses for the Sales office users connected to a switch. The switch will connect to an Ethernet interface on the core router.
Subnet 2 will be used to provide a range of IP addresses connected to the other Ethernet interface of the core router with a switch for the Business office users. The router IP addresses on the Ethernet ports for both networks will be the last useable IP address from the respective network. The Sales and Business office each will have one printer per network. It will be assigned the first useable IP address for the respective networks.

Step 1:

Create a 1-page logical network diagram using Microsoft® Visio® showing the components and devices needed to build a simple office network based on the subnet scheme you developed.

Step 2:

Write a 1- to 2-page executive summary using Microsoft® Word describing how to determine the number of host and subnets needed for this task and how to determine the custom subnet mask. Includeas part of the paper:

A table identifying for each subnet the subnet address, subnet mask in dotted decimal, highest useable address, lowest useable address, and broadcast address
The IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address for the printer in the Sales office and the printer in the Business office
Detail the addressing scheme of the logical network diagram you created in Step 1 for the router, switches, servers, and printer interfaces along with the network addresses for the two existing subnets. Make sure to copy and paste the Visio® diagram into this Word document. Do not submit Microsoft® Visio® files.
Recommended connectivity protocols to the WAN and for future expansion using 2 additional routers within the organization

The vendor that you hired is not performing. Identify the risk response

Within the Discussion Board area, write 350-600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions with your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

The discussion assignment for this week will be to determine what may be the best risk response for some given situations.

The following Discussion Board research will assist you in determining the correct responses. Research at least 2 sources (which may include your textbook) to support your response.

The vendor that you hired is not performing. Identify the risk response that is the most appropriate for this risk (avoid, transfer, mitigate, or accept), and write a full description of the contingency plan to go along with the selected response.
The equipment that you ordered for this project is now a month late. Identify the risk response that is the most appropriate for this risk (avoid, transfer, mitigate, or accept), and write a full description of the contingency plan to go along with the selected response.
The location where the project is being developed has hurricanes that come through the area a few times a year. Identify the risk response that is the most appropriate for this risk (avoid, transfer, mitigate, or accept), and write a full description of the contingency plan to go along with the selected response.
The task effort that was initially estimated is actually going to take three times as long because there is a learning curve involved. Identify the risk response that is the most appropriate for this risk (avoid, transfer, mitigate, or accept), and write a full description of the contingency plan to go along with the selected response.

Write 2 more paragraphs that are an introduction and conclusion to this topic. Be sure to include your references, and format your submission in APA format.

FIN 534 Week 10 Homework Set 5 Chapter 12

FIN 534 Week 10 Homework Set #5: Chapter 12

Directions: Answer the following questions on a separate document. Explain how you reached the answer or show your work if a mathematical calculation is needed, or both. Submit your assignment using the assignment link above.

In your own words, complete the Mini-Case on Page 562 of your textbook.

Suppose you decide (as did Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg) to start a company. Your product is a software platform that integrates a wide range of media devices, including laptop computers, desktop computers, digital video recorders, and cell phones. Your initial market is the student body at your university. Once you have established your company and set up procedures for operating it, you plan to expand to other colleges in the area and eventually to go nationwide. At some point, hopefully sooner rather than later, you plan to go public with an IPO and then to buy a yacht and take off for the South Pacific to indulge in your passion for underwater photography. With these issues in mind, you need to answer for yourself, and potential investors, the following questions.

a. What is an agency relationship? When you first begin operations, assuming you are the only employee and only your money is invested in the business, would any agency conflicts exist? Explain your answer
b. If you expanded and hired additional people to help you, might that give rise to agency problems?
c. Suppose you need additional capital to expand and you sell some stock to outside investors. If you maintain enough stock to control the company, what type of agency conflict might occur?
d. Suppose your company raises funds from outside lenders. What type of agency costs might occur? How might lenders mitigate the agency costs?
e. Suppose your company is very successful and you cash out most of your stock and turn the company over to an elected board of directors. Neither you nor any other stockholders own a controlling interest (this is the situation at most public companies). List six potential managerial behaviors that can harm a firm’s value.
f. What is corporate governance? List five corporate governance provisions that are internal to a firm and are under its control.
g. What characteristics of the board of directors usually lead to effective corporate governance?
h. List three provisions in the corporate charter that affect takeovers.
i. Briefly describe the use of stock options in a compensation plan. What are some potential problems with stock options as a form of compensation?
j. What is block ownership? How does it affect corporate governance?
k. Briefly explain how regulatory agencies and legal systems affect corporate governance.
