Attached is the Sketch MAP for the Project and also the Sketch for the Network Cabonet Design in both side in the Edge and Core side. 2 Cabling Infrastructure Al Taj Construction is proposing complete CAT 6 Class E structured cabling system for Basrah MOP Campus. CORNING Cabling System complies with the following standards: TIA/EIA 568A, TSB 67, ISO/IEC IS 11801, CENELEC EN 50173. As such the cabling system will support applications which are or will be defined as Class E applications among which Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Token Ring 4 & 16 Mbps, ATM 25 – 155 – 622Mbps, ISDN, Telephone and TP-PMD. Fiber Backbone Al Taj Construction recommends fiber backbone for connecting the main campus building as it provides distinguished advantages over wireless and satellite connections as a proposed alternatives. Fiber backbone is recommended as well for connecting buildings within the medical campus. Fiber backbone offers Gigabit speed (and more) for the backbone connections, if offers immunity against electromagnetic interference, it offers immunity against lightening and different weather conditions. And on top of that, fiber backbone offers running cost that approaches zero.
However, wireless alternatives may be vulnerable to weather conditions and are extremely bandwidth-limited when compared to fiber optic backbone. Both wireless Ethernet and VSAT requires high maintenance cost and VSAT connection in particular requires high operational cost due to monthly bandwidth subscription fees. For above reasons, Al Taj Construction is proposing the fiber option for Basrah main campus and medical campus backbone network. At the main campus, the campus distributor will be located at the communication exchange building because of its intermediate location.
All other building will be connected via fiber cables to the communication exchange. AL Taj Construction assumes that it will make use of existing outside underground ducts that currently connects the buildings. CORNING 48 Core Fiber Cable dielectric armour fiber cable 50/125 will be used for backbone connecting the two building. This CORNING 50/125u Outdoor cable offers distance advantage over the 62. 5/125 cables as it supports 1000BaseSX connections for almost double the distance. The proposed cable is of rugged construction and provides resistance to aggressive environments.
Corning Fiber Cable Compliant high speed cable support Gigabit Ethernet over distances up to 800 meter which is surly sufficient for the intended installation. Single mode fiber optic cable will be used to connect the faculty of pharmacy to faculty of medicine due the long distance. Corning 8 Core outdoor single mode fiber, rugged construction, rodent resistance will be used for this purpose. 2 Fiber Backbone Work Details Fiber cables will be terminated on fiber patch panel at the cabinet side. Fiber patch cords will be used to connect the fiber patch panels to fiber ports on active equipment. 3 CAT6 Horizontal Cabling
Al Taj Construction will install full structured cabling at each of the MOP buildings mentioned within this proposal scope including outlets, cables, patch panels, patch cords and cabinets. Final location for UTP outlets will be determined during the implementation planning phase. CORNING CAT6 UTP cabling is proposed for horizontal cabling which will be responsible for providing User connectivity within each of the blocks. All cables coming from the users’ outlets will be terminated on the patch panels inside the floor distributors. 42 HU, and 18 HU Cabinets will be used depending on the size of the distribution point.
CAT6 UTP 1HU patch panel 24 ports will be used to terminate the UTP cables at the cabinet side, CAT6 UTP patch cords will be used to connect the patch panels to the active equipment and CAT 6 UTP patch (office) cords will be used to connect different users to their correspondent data outlets. And the cable guide will hide the long patch cords for the UTP connections. The sketch below shown the connection method which is used in our projects. [pic] The picture below showed the final look for the edge cabinets that will be in each floor for the small and large buildings.
EDGE Cabinet with 96 Cable UTP CAT6 (From our Project in Libya) EDGE Cabinet with 58 Cable UTP CAT6 (From our Project in Libya) 4 Detailed CAT6 Horizontal Cabling The CAT6 Cables will pass through the Ceiling and then will pass through the Cable trunks (25mm x 50mm or 25mm x 25mm) depends on the number of point and number of cables. Then the UTP will be terminated in the Double Box, the each Double Box will carry two UTP CAT6 cables one of them will be terminated for the phone and the other will be terminated for the Network and Internet.
The face plate of the Box will be loaded with two keystones one for the Internet and the other for the telephone. 5 Testing and Labeling Each cable in this project will be labeled for below technology so the IT Department and Communications Department will be able to do any maintenance or test later on after project completion: Building Number – Floor Number – Cable Number (Point Number) – Telephone or Network Example : 1 – 3- 20- T (Building Number 1 – Third Floor – Cable Number 20 – Telephone Point). This labeling system is used by our team for 12 years ago; it will be very easy to use for maintenance and tests operations.
These labels will be shown later on in the maps of the project that will be completed by our Civil Engineer on the same MOP maps. 3 Delivery period: Delivery period for this project divided into two main points : – Delivery for hardware (passive and active), installation, engineering, implementation , UTP and Fiber testing, Finishing Cabinets, installing Windows Server, configure domain with Active Directory, installing Antivirus, Configure Storage and server room implementation, will take 90 working days acceptance date. Training will take the same period that shown in the financial offer. The Data Center Details To be able to control this network and monitor all the users and PC`s, we should install a Windows Server that will allow the administrators to: – Control people and users and their behavior on the computers and laptops – Control what users can share or see or check even their permissions and rights – To monitor the reliability of each computer and operating system – To put the policy that the management plan For load balancing and backed up the files and folders – To perform more security and apply the rules in the domain and control this domain We need to install windows server 2008, from Microsoft, this operating system is installed in more than 89% in the enterprises in the world. This operating system will be installed on DELL Server DL380 which will be able to do all these options and can be upgraded later on to run more than 5 virtual Machines within the same operating system to be able to test or run more than one operating system or more than one feature at the same time.
By this step, the team can build their own DNS, DHCP, Active Directory and Group Policy. 1 Windows Server 2008 Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 is the latest Windows Server operating system from Microsoft. R2 SP1 is the right foundation for today’s businesses to design tomorrow’s automated, secure datacenters and cloud computing solutions. And for today’s datacenter concerns, it can immediately reduce operating costs and increase efficiencies via features like enhanced management control, improved energy efficiency, and enhanced workload performance through full support for 64-bit computing.
It also provides improved branch office capabilities, exciting new remote access experiences, streamlined server management, and a powerful new in-box virtualization solution spanning both clients and servers. #1. Powerful Hardware and Scaling Features Windows Server 2008 R2 was designed to perform as well or better for the same hardware base as Windows Server 2008. In addition, R2 is the first Windows Server operating system to move solely to a 64-bit architecture. Windows Server 2008 R2 also has several CPU-specific enhancements.
First, this version expands CPU support to enable customers to run with up to 256 logical processors. R2 also supports Second Level Translation (SLAT), which enables R2 to take advantage of the Enhanced Page Tables feature found in the latest AMD CPUs as well as the similar Nested Page Tables feature found in Intel’s latest processors. The combination enables R2 servers to run with much improved memory management. Components of Windows Server 2008 R2 have received hardware boosts as well.
Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 R2 can now access up to 64 logical CPUs on host computers. This capability not only takes advantage of new multicore systems, it also means greater virtual machine consolidation ratios per physical host. #2. Reduced Power Consumption Windows Server 2008 introduced a ‘balanced’ power policy, which monitors the utilization level of the processors on the server and dynamically adjusts the processor performance states to limit power to the needs of the workload.
Windows Server 2008 R2 enhances this power saving feature by adding more granular abilities to manage and monitor server and server CPU power consumption, as well as extending this ability to the desktop via new power-oriented Group Policy settings. Active Directory Domain Services Group Policy in Windows Server 2008 already gave administrators a certain amount of control over power management on client PCs. These capabilities are enhanced in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 to provide even more precise control in more deployment scenarios for even greater potential savings. #3. Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 R2 Windows Server 2008 R2 also holds the much-anticipated update to Microsoft’s virtualization technology, Hyper-V. The new Hyper-V was designed to augment both existing virtual machine management as well as to address specific IT challenges, especially around server migration. Hyper-V is an enabling technology for one of Windows Server 2008 R2’s marquee features, Live Migration. With Hyper-V version 1. 0, Windows Server 2008 was capable of Quick Migration, which could move VMs between physical hosts with only a few econds of down-time. Still, those few seconds were enough to cause difficulties in certain scenarios, especially those includling client connections to VM-hosted servers. With Live Migration, moves between physical targets happen in milliseconds, which means migration operations become invisible to connected users. Making this even easier is a new feature called processor compatibility mode, which allows administrators to migrate machines between different generations of same-brand CPUs.
Customers employing System Center Virtual Machine Manager for Hyper-V will also enjoy additional management and orchestration scenarios, including a new VM-oriented Performance and Resource Optimization feature and updated support for managing failover clusters. The new Hyper-V also has core performance enhancements, including the previously mentioned ability to take advantage of up to 64 logical processors and to beef up that CPU performance with host support for Second Level Translation (SLAT). Finally, VMs can also add and remove storage without requiring a reboot and also boot from VHD as well. 4. Reduced Desktop Costs with VDI Much of the interest in virtualization solutions is in the server world. However, equally exciting advances are being made in presentation virtualization, where processing happens on a server optimized for capacity and availability while graphics, keyboard, mouse, and other user I/O functions are handled at the user’s desktop. Windows Server 2008 R2 contains enhanced Virtual Desktop Integration (VDI) technology, which extends the functionality of Terminal Services to deliver certain business programs to their employee’s remote desktops.
With VDI, programs that Remote Desktop Services sends to a computer are now available on the Start menu right alongside programs that are locally installed. This approach provides improved desktop virtualization and better application virtualization. Desktop virtualization will benefit from features including improved personalization management, a near-invisible integration of virtualized desktops and applications in Windows 7, better audio and graphics performance, a seriously cool Web access update and more.
VDI provides more efficient use of virtualized resources and better integration with local peripheral hardware as well as powerful new virtual management features. #5. Easier and More Efficient Server Management Although increasing the capabilities of your server operating system is always a good thing, the perceived downside has always been additional complexity and workload for day-to-day server managers. Windows Server 2008 R2 specifically addresses this problem with lots of work evident across all of its management-oriented consoles. 3 Features in these tools include: Improved datecenter power consumption and management, as evidenced earlier • Improved remote administration, including a remotely-installable Server Manager • Improved identity management features via the updated and simplified Active Directory Domain Services and Active Directory Federated Services Windows Server 2008 R2 also improves on the popular PowerShell feature introduced in Windows Server 2008. PowerShell 2. 0 significantly enhances the earlier version with the inclusion of more than 240 new pre-built cmdlets as well as a new graphical user interface (GUI) that adds professional-level development features for creating new cmdlets.
The new GUI includes colored syntaxing, new production script debugging capabilities, and new testing tools. #6. Ubiquitous Remote Access Today’s mobile workforce is increasing the demand on IT to provide remote access to corporate resources. However, managing remote computers is an ongoing challenge, with low wide are network (WAN) bandwidth and sporadic connection and re-connection processes interfering with lengthier desktop management tasks such as Group Policy changes and up-to-date patching. Windows Server 2008 R2 introduces a new type of connectivity called DirectAccess—a powerful way for remote users to seamlessly access corporate esources without requiring a traditional VPN connection and client software. Using technologies that shipped in Windows Server 2008, Microsoft has added simple management wizards that enable administrators to configure SSTP and IPv6 across both R2 and Windows 7 clients to enable the basic DirectAccess connection, and then augment that connection with additional R2 management and security tools, including management policies and NAP. With DirectAccess, every user is considered remote all of the time. Users are no longer required to distinguish between local and remote connections.
DirectAccess handles all of these distinctions in the background. IT professionals retain precise access control and full perimeter security, helping to ease both desktop security and management headaches on both sides of the connection. #7. Improved Branch Office Performance and Management Many branch office IT architectures have relatively low bandwidth. Slow WAN links impact the productivity of branch office employees waiting to access content from the main office, and costs for branch office bandwidth allocation can amount to as much as 33% of overall corporate IT spending.
To address this challenge, Windows Server 2008 R2 introduces a feature called BranchCache™, which reduces WAN utilization and improves the responsiveness of network applications. With BranchCache™, clients who request access to data on the organization’s network are sent directions to the file on the local (branch office) network if the file has ever been requested there before. If the file is stored locally, those clients get immediate high-speed access. Such files can be stored either on a local BranchCache™ server for larger branch offices or simply on local Windows 7 PCs. 4 #8.
Simplified Management for SMBs With Windows Server 2008 R2, Microsoft is focusing more attention at the SMB and mid-market customer. This new focus provides these customers with a rich landscape of Microsoft product offerings, from Small Business Server up to Windows Essential Business Server and now Windows Server 2008 Standard. All SKUs are being outfitted with new management tools to make SMB IT Pro life easier. Active Directory’s new Active Directory Administration Center is one example—all those disparate management GUIs now hosted in a single interface and all based on PowerShell.
Additionally, there are the Best Practice Analyzers, which Microsoft has extended to every server role to keep all your server configs in sync with the latest best practices. And last but not least, there’s the new Windows Server Backup utility. Long a second-class citizen, this updated, in-the-box backup app has been significantly upgraded to include more granular support for designing backup jobs, including support for system state operations; and, it has been optimized to run both faster and to use less disk space. 9. Foundation for Cloud Computing Windows Server 2008 R2 is the foundation for Microsoft’s private cloud computing offerings. Combining core technologies, including Hyper-V for advanced virtualization, Active Directory for identity management, PowerShell for customizable automation and R2’s flexible remote access features, you can use this server platform to construct pools of virtualized compute resources and securely extend those resources cross-premises, securely and with custom and automated management.
Whether you’re building a dedicated private cloud or attaching such a cloud to a hosted or public cloud resource, Windows Server 2008 R2 is the right bedrock on which to build your organization’s cloud infrastucture. Best of all, everything you need to get started with basic cloud computing is included in the box! #10. Managing Data Not just Managing Storage Managing storage isn’t just about managing disks. Storage volume is increasing at a 51% compounded annual growth rate between 2008 and 2012 according to IDC. * To keep pace and stay competitive, organizations must begin managing data, not just disks.
Windows Server 2008 R2 gives IT administrators the tools for precisely this kind of initiative with the new File Classification Infrastructure (FCI). This new feature builds an extensible and automated classification mechanism on top of existing shared file architetures; this enables IT administrators to direct specific actions for specific files based on entirely customizable classification. FCI is also extensible to partners, which means Windows Server 2008 R2 users can expect to see additional capabilities around FCI being delivered by ISVs in the near future. 2 The Server Features and Benefits:
Attached the Data Sheet for the DELL Server R710 Rack mounted and all specifications are shown there. 1 Customer Inspired Design Dell’s servers offer world class system and image commonality and customer inspired usability. The Dell™ PowerEdge™ R610 takes advantage of Dell’s system commonality; When IT managers learn one system, they have learned the logic required to manage Dell’s next generation servers. The logical layout of components and power supply placement enables a simple and straight forward installation and a simplified redeployment experience in the future.
In addition, Dell’s latest PowerEdge servers provide a graphical and interactive LCD for system health monitoring, alerting and control of basic management configuration right in the front of the server. Customers have an AC power meter and ambient temperature thermometer built into the server which they can monitor on this display without any software tools. [pic] 2 Energy-Tuned Technologies Dell’s newest servers feature energy-tuned technologies designed to reduce power consumption while increasing performance and capacity.
Enhancements include efficient power supply units right-sized for system requirements, effective system-level design efficiency, policy-driven power and thermal management, and highly efficient standards-based Energy Smart components. Dell’s advanced thermal control is designed to deliver optimal performance at minimum system and fan power consumption resulting in our quietest mainstream 1U servers to date. These elements drive efficiency as a design standard while delivering the performance businesses require. [pic] 3 Simplified Systems Management
The next generation Dell OpenManage™ suite offers enhanced operations and standards-based commands designed to integrate with existing systems for effective control. Lifecycle Controller is the engine for advanced systems management integrated on the server. Lifecycle Controller simplifies administrator tasks to perform a complete set of provisioning functions such as system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration and diagnostics from a single intuitive interface called Unified Server Configurator (USC) in a pre-OS environment.
This eliminates the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD media. The new Dell Management Console (DMC), powered by Altiris from Symantec, delivers a single view and a common data source into the entire infrastructure. Dell Management Console is built on the Symantec™ Management Platform (formerly Altiris® Notification Server), an easily extensible, modular foundation that can provide basic hardware management or more advanced functions such as asset and security management.
Dell Management Console helps reduce or eliminate manual processes — so less time and money is spent keeping the lights on and more time can be spent on strategic uses of technology.

Course Content
Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 focuses on providing the skills and knowledge necessary to implement and support a small switched and routed network. For the purpose of this course, a small network is defined as 1 to 20 hosts connected to a single switch, with the switch running a single VLAN (VLAN1). The switch is also connected to a router providing a routed link (Routing Information Protocol [RIP] and default) to a simulated Internet and corporate office. ICND1 works from the bottom up, providing knowledge and skills as they are needed.
The course starts with an introduction to networks. It then introduces host-to-host communications using TCP / IP. Next, Layer 2 devices (switches) are introduced into the network. Next, Layer 3 devices (routers) are introduced into the network. The introduction of Layer 3 devices leads to the use of WANs and routing to connect the site to the Internet and corporate sites. Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives: • Describe how networks function, identifying major components, function of etwork components, and the OSI reference model • Using the host-to-host packet delivery process, describe issues related to increasing traffic on an Ethernet LAN and identify switched LAN technology solutions to Ethernet networking issues • Describe the reasons for extending the reach of a LAN and the methods that can be used, with a focus on RF wireless access • Describe the reasons for connecting networks with routers and how routed networks transmit data through networks using TCP / IP • Describe the function of WANs, the major devices of WANs, and configure PPP encapsulation, static and dynamic routing, PAT, and RIP routing • Use the command-line interface to discover neighbors on the network and manage the router start up and configuration.
