In cases where there are no accepted mitigating circumstances as determined through VIT Policies,
Procedures and Forms, late submission of assessments will lead automatically to the imposition of a
penalty. Penalties will be applied as soon as the deadline is reached.
Short extensions and special consideration
Special Consideration is a request for:
• Extensions of the due date for an assessment, other than an examination (e.g. assignment
• Special Consideration (Special Consideration in relation to a Completed assessment, including
an end-of-unit Examination).
Students wishing to request Special Consideration in relation to an assessment the due date of which
has not yet passed must engage in written emails to the teaching team to Request for Special
Consideration as early as possible and prior to start time of the assessment due date, along with any
accompanying documents, such as medical certificates.

• By paying someone else to complete your academic work, you don’t learn as much as you
could have if you did the work yourself.
• You are not prepared for the demands of your future employment.
• You could be found guilty of academic misconduct.
• Many of for pay contract cheating companies recycle assignments despite guarantees of
“original, plagiarism-free work” so similarity is easily detected by TurnitIn.
• Penalties for academic misconduct include suspension and exclusion.
• Students in some disciplines are required to disclose any findings of guilt for academic
misconduct before being accepted into certain professions (e.g. law).
• You might disclose your personal and financial information in an unsafe way, leaving yourself
open to many risks including possible identity theft.
• You also leave yourself open to blackmail - if you pay someone else to do an assignment for
you, they know you have engaged in fraudulent behaviour and can always blackmail you.
We determine your grades to the following Grading Scheme:

Assessment details
Assessment 1: Case Study and Presentation
Weight Length Due date ULO
10% XXXXXXXXXXSession 5 Sunday 11:55 PM ULO1 and ULO2
In this assessment you are required to explore the given case study and provide a solution, employing the latest wireless communication techniques. The
solution needs to be presented in a report and a short video presentation discussing findings and the proposed solution. The assessment will help in
developing an understanding of communication in wireless networks and the limitations and challenges.
Case Study: Home office
Under doctor's orders for more bed rest, Jan received authorization from her employer to work from home during and immediately after her pregnancy.
However, to do her job effectively, she routinely needs to retrieve large files from the corporate local area network (LAN), modify them, and return them to
another location on the LAN. She also occasionally likes to print something for convenience or record keeping, and she needs convenient access to a telephone.
Jan has received instructions from her company's Information Technology (IT) staff regarding how to connect to the corporate LAN.
Jan cu
ently has
oadband access to her home. However, the only access is to a PC in a family room in the home's finished basement. Jan's family uses this
PC for Internet access, online gaming, and as a resource for school projects. The PC is connected to a colour printer. Jan wants to create a home office in an
unused upstairs bedroom. During the later stages of her pregnancy, she wants the convenience of working from more comfortable locations, such as her
couch or bed. She already has a cordless phone and is planning to purchase a laptop PC and perhaps a second printer. However, a quick call to her
provider has caused her to question the financial feasibility of running new wiring for
oadband access in other locations of her home. Perplexed with her
problem, Jan talks to some of her co-workers, and one of them mentions wireless. Jan does a little investigation of the wireless LAN products available and
decides many of the products are within her budget.

Victorian Institute of Technology CRICOS Provider No. 02044E, RTO No: 20829

The scope of Jan’s solution will be limited by the fact that she already has
oadband access installed in her home. She also has instructions for connecting to
the corporate LAN. However, she has not checked to see if the wireless home network will affect these instructions. Jan's challenge is that she needs reliable
high-speed access to the corporate LAN from the new home office and other convenient locations in the house. She wants to interfere as little as possible
with use of the PC in the family room, and she needs her laptop to be inaccessible from the family PC. She would like to have printing capability in the home
office. However, her solution must fit within a limited budget. Finally, all equipment that she uses for her solution must be immediately available.

Figure 1. Jan's Site
The proposed solution must consider the following requirements:
• Any locations where she wants to use the laptop should not be more than 100 meters (over 300 feet) away from the access point
• Interference which may be caused by the cordless phone and microwave
• The home network should be cost efficient
• The network needs to be secure
• Other users on the home network

This report focuses on setting up a home office environment for an employee who is permitted to work remotely by her employer. Jan is allowed to access confidential information of her employer and retrieve, modify and transfer large data to accomplish her routine office work. The report proposes wireless network setup for Jan, outlining the advantages of the chosen network, equipment required for the setup, different communication channels that would be used in this setup and their limitations.
Home Office Solution
With the advancement in technology, remote working is practiced in almost all workplaces.
How the solution meets the requirements
The proposed network addresses each requirement such as
1. Retrieval of large files from the corporate LAN. The new tri-band router will address this requirement. It allows large amounts of data to be transmitted over LAN.
2. Transfer of large data to another location on LAN after modification. The selected tri-band router shall be VPN-enabled to address this requirement.
3. Single wireless access point in the basement will be sufficient to cater to all the home office needs along with other devices in the house on the network.
4. Printing of material for record keeping conveniently from anywhere in the house. A Bluetooth or wireless enabled printer will address this requirement.
5. Convenient access to phone. Cordless phone available with Jan will address this requirement.
Benefits of Proposed Solution
The solution offers certain benefits mentioned below.
· Easy installation- Wireless communication network setup eliminates the hassle of cables.
· Reliability- In the absence of cables, communication becomes reliable eliminating the issues due to damage of cables or other natural diminution.
· Disaster Recovery- Loss of communication is minimal.
· Flexible Schedule and Increased productivity: Jan can take
eaks according to her health and take care of herself better at home. Moreover, it is stated in research that with increased number of
