West Consulting Business Description
West Consulting is a graphic design and printing company. It is growing in consumer and sales volume and therefore, is expanding its local campus in Houston, Texas and adding a test location in China.
As a graphics design and printing company, West Consulting runs bandwidth-intensive applications from servers housed at their headquarters in Houston, Texas. IT leadership has determined that the current network continuously runs in a degraded state and users experience heavy latency when accessing the servers that house their customer Computer Aided Design (CAD) software.
Due to increased sales of their CAD designs, they need to expand their facilities. The company headquarters currently has 1,000 unique users amongst their two buildings and has decided to add another building and 500 users.
In addition, leadership has decided to expand into China to enable them to test their designs in a new and growing market. The footprint in China will be relatively small; approximately 30 people.
You are a Network Consultant for West Consulting. You are tasked with proposing an improved network design to support their growth and expansion plans.
