which you nominate from your address space. The internal interface of the router should
connect directly to your routing core. You not need to worry about routing from the outside
world’s perspective. But you will need to worry about routing for your entire internal network.
You should advise your infrastructure that the public interface is you default gateway.
A basic floor plan is attached in a separate file.
You now know what the hotel requires in terms of connectivity. Using this partial specification,
proposes a structure for the network to be used by the hotel. Your design of the network should

the considerations to address include:

4. What media will you use to connect edge devices to the switches and/or routers?
5. What kind of routers will you use?
6. How many interfaces will they have of what type?
7. How will you distribute the cabling up the floors of the building and within the floors?
8. What components will you need in addition to the switches and routers required?
