Assignment 2 - High level design for an SME network and VPN services

Unit Learning Outcomes covered in this assessment

The purpose of this assignment is to develop requirements and design a network which can be implemented with VPN services for an SME (small and medium sized enterprises). The design of network and service must be specific so that it can be used for a purpose of a quotation and proposal from vendors.

After the assignment, students are expected to learn not only the knowledge and current technical aspects of VPN but also research, data collection, analysis and writing skills, which are very important and help them for study. Students will be able to understand what aspects and contents are required for requirements too.

The following ULOs are covered;

· c. Develop architectural VPN designs for small, medium and large businesses and corporations

· d. Report on the health of the existing VPN architecture, solution, data, application, and technology

· e. Investigate and justify the appropriate design and solution for different organisations

· f. Analyse and report on the current and future state of the management of VPN infrastructure and its technologies

· g. Define a roadmap process to transform the VPN architecture to support long-term organisational goals

· h. Implement a process to support the administration and the management of VPN

Virtual Private Networking – SME

Introduction
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) have a developing effect in the modern era of globalization, especially in the countries that are developing. A SME is said to be a noteworthy social as well as financial supporter of the world economy; it gives large in business as well as employment development more than substantial endeavors do. This enhanced notoriety has set a pressure on SMEs to upgrade the way they run their business so as to be more focused in the cu
ent global environment. IS/IT is basically the way to SME achievement in contending in the worldwide market. Their large network infrastructure is the bedrock of communication in SMEs. This networking infrastructure is responsible of communication between a few locales of a solitary organization. Endeavor systems have developed significantly over the most recent two decades.
Virtual Private Network (VPN) is considered as the network system that utilizes some public network system in order to exchange data by utilizing secure techniques. This innovation associates isolate sites over the Internet and also enables them to work as a single, private system. The data is sent by means of encrypted tunnel over the Internet however being private during data transmission. In this paper, we will discuss about VPN (Virtual Private Network Design) for SMEs. [1]
Scope
The main scope of implementing VPN in SME is to enable virtual connection for employees. It will enable the employees to access the data remotely from any location when they are not in office. It will help to establish secured connection to the SME data from any location. Also, it will help to minimize overall expenditure of the organization.
Limitations
An exceptionally detailed comprehension of the system security issues as well as careful installation will be required for VPN configuration so as to ensure enough security while interfacing through the public network system. Performance as well as dependability of the VPNs that are web based won't be simply controlled by the association. The VPN solution will dependably depend on the ISP and the administration quality provided by ISP. The VPN solutions as well as items that were offered by different providers were not good with a few associations as a result of VPN technology standards. Packet loss can be possible in VPN due to network problem. Dissimilar to VPNs, MPLS-based Secure Private Networks give solutions for these issues, with substantially more redundancy as well as adaptability. [2]
Requirements
Network access server (NAS) - NAS is device which is used for setting up and keeping up each tunnel in a remote access VPN.
Firewall - A firewall gives a strong boundary between private network system as well as the Internet. IT staff can set firewalls to limit what kind of network traffic can go through from the Internet onto a LAN, and on what TCP and UDP ports. Indeed, even without a VPN, a LAN ought to incorporate a firewall to help secure against malicious network traffic.
AAA Server - Authentication, authorization and accounting is considered as acronym of AAA server which are the responsibilities for the server. For every VPN connection, the AAA server affirms our identity (authentication), recognizes what we're permitted to access over the association (authorization) and tracks what we do while we're signed in (accounting). [3]
Logical Network Design
A typical practice is to utilize a virtual private network design (VPN) when SME has to use the frameworks and assets that are the part of corporate local network from outside systems, for example, the Internet. A VPN network system regularly is a client server application which handles the safe transmission of information between various sites or remote users with the help of encrypted virtual tunnel. The procedure is very transparent to the members and communication between them is as they are privately associated. Rather than utilizing a committed physical network connection, a VPN utilizes virtual connection directed through the Internet from the organization to the remote location. This tunnel is considered as separate logical tunnel amongst endpoints and it is combination of...
