Analyzing Business
Goals and Constraints

This chapter serves as an introduction to the rest of the book by describing top-down network design. The first section explains how to use a systematic, top-down process when designing computer networks for your customers. Depending on your job, your customers might consist of other departments within your company, those to whom you are trying to sell products, or clients of your consulting business.
After describing the methodology, this chapter focuses on the first step in top-down network design: analyzing your customer’s business goals. Business goals include the capability to run network applications to meet corporate business objectives, and the need to work within business constraints, such as budgets, limited networking personnel, and tight timeframes.
This chapter also covers an important business constraint that some people call the eighth layer of the Open System Interconnection (OSI) reference model: workplace politics. To ensure the success of your network design project, you should gain an understanding of any corporate politics and policies at your customer’s site that could affect your project.
The chapter concludes with a checklist to help you determine if you have addressed the business issues in a network design project.

Using a Top-Down Network Design Methodology
According to Albert Einstein:


“The world we’ve made as a result of the level of thinking we have done thus far creates problems that we cannot solve at the same level at which we created them.”
To paraphrase Einstein, networking professionals have the ability to create networks that are so complex that when problems arise they can’t be solved using the same sort of thinking that was used to create the networks. Add to this the fact that each upgrade, patch, and modification to a network…...

Grand Canyon

...There are so many places to go and things to do in ones life. People might go there to see family, vacation, or because of work. Some people make big lists of places that they want to go see and things to do before their life is up. I had a list when I was younger, but I do not anymore, because when my family traveled when I was younger we went everywhere I wanted to go. They were the Grand Canyon, New York City, Charlestown, South Carolina, and Maine. The first place to tell you about is the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is a steep-sided gorge carved by the Colorado River. The canyon is 277 miles long. It is so amazing by how beautiful it was made by the Colorado River and erosion. To me if you look at the layers of rock it looks like a map of time. My family and I traveled halfway down to the bottom. In the bottom there is a small town named Supai. Native Americans made small settlements within the canyon and its many caves. The second place I want to talk about is New York City. When I was nine my mom got a travel assignment to New York City. When we were there we did many things; always did something. There was two places that I really enjoyed seeing. They were the Empire State Building and Broadway. We never went and saw a play, but we didn’t mind. I loved to see Broadway at night it was so beautiful by how it would light up. When I was a little girl I always dreamed that me and my brothers would go to Broadway and be in a play or one of us wrote a play. The Empire...

Proyecto de Madera

...LA MADERA Introducción La madera es un recurso natural renovable que proporciona materia prima para la construcción, generación de energía, fibras para la producción de pulpa y papel, paneles y tableros, y más recientemente para biocombustibles y biomateriales, lo que la hace el quinto producto comercial más importante del mundo. Diferencias en las propiedades físicas, químicas y anatómicas de la madera la hacen un material altamente variable y complejo La madera y sus productos son un excelente material de construcción, no siempre bien conocido por prescriptores y usuarios motivo por el cual entre estos colectivos no gozan de buena imagen, asociando generalmente con escasa durabilidad y resistencia al fuego. De todos los materiales usados por el ser humano a lo largo de la historia, la madera fue el primero de ellos, gracias a una serie de propiedades como facilidad de conformado, bajo peso específico, agradable apariencia exterior, propiedades térmicas y mecánicas,… Esto ha generado una industria muy importante. La explotación de los árboles para la obtención de madera da lugar a graves problemas medioambientales, porque si no se realiza la tala con unos criterios medioambientales, puede producirse una sobreexplotación que genera deforestación, pérdida de bosques primarios y, desertificación. Historia de la Madera Es la historia de las diferentes épocas que atravesaron los árboles de la plantación de manzanos y las alternativas ecológicas que le ofrecen a su casa.......

Canyon Ranch

...of their efforts are Canyon Ranch, a leader in the health resort and spa industry. (Applegate, Austin, Soule, 2009, p. 156) Today it is recognized worldwide as the gold standard for healthy vacations. The company has expanded far beyond the family-run health resort envisioned by its founders, while always remaining true to their original mission: 

Canyon Ranch aims to inspire people to make a commitment to healthy living, turning hopes and intentions into the highest enjoyment of life. (Canyon Ranch Web Site, 2012) For the first 25 years following its inception, Canyon Ranch opened additional resorts and evolved by expanding service offerings with a focus on health and healing, spa services and fitness. In 2004 the company faced competitive pressures from industry growth, which revealed both opportunity and limitations within their information technology infrastructure. The corporate IT function at Canyon Ranch numbered 20 professionals headed by Mike Randle, corporate IT director, who reported to the COO and CFO. The function was responsible for internal software development and maintenance, as well as evaluating software packages and performing help-desk and support tasks. (Applegate, Austin, Soule, 2009, p. 171) IT was considered a support function however; the need to address competitive forces would lead to consideration for IT to become a strategic business partner. Information systems were decentralized and mostly non-integrated. Canyon Ranch owned the......

50p Tax Hike Analysis

...50P Tax Hike Analysis Econ201 2/12/14 50P The 50P tax was a brilliant idea at one point or another. However in this current economy and the market failure this, in my opinion, this is not a piece of legislature that will help anything. The tax was made to help bring in revenue and to make the higher income people to pay their fair share. This seems to be a popular idea that the wealthier individuals aren’t paying their fair share of taxes although the wealthy pay the largest amount of taxes. Majority tax The 50P tax is no different; it raises taxes in a tough economic time and that is always a bad idea it doesn’t matter who the tax is on. When you raise taxes you actually decrease revenue and hurt the economy. To strengthen a stalling economy the “Fed” should pull back as much as possible without causing too many ripples. This would let the free market have reign and give a steady boost to the economy. The 50p plan is one that I like to call simple complex simple or a Majority tax.  £35,000 should pay tax around 20%. Income up to £150,000 you will pay tax at 40%, and any income you get above £150,000 you will pay tax at 50% which is where the 50p rate comes from. Great Britain had done away with that policy earlier, but it looks like it is back and here to stay. The total needed to handle Great Britain’s national debt is pitiful compared to America’s but they are two different countries and can’t be compared on that basis. Pros There are some good things to the......

The Effects of Fare Hike in the Philippines

...Information about the Jeepney Fare Hike in the Philippines Beginning June 14, 2014. Jeepneys in the National Capital Region, Region 3, and Region 4 will be increasing the minimum fare from P8.00 to P8.50 for the first 4 kilometers. Every succeeding kilometer will cost from P1.40 to P1.50. On the first week of June, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) began distributing copies of the approved fare matrix to various public utility jeepneys (PUJs) operators and groups to prepare for the scheduled hike. Chairman Winston Ginez said operators and drivers should display the new matrix prominently in their jeepneys, otherwise they will not be allowed to charge passengers the new rates. “We strongly urge the commuting public to report drivers who fail to conspicuously display the new fare matrix,” Ginez added. Those who fail to do so also face fines from P5,000 to P15,000 based on a joint administrative order from the LTFRB, the Land Transportation Office and the Department of Transportation and Communication which kicks in June 19. The LTFRB handed out copies of the fare matrix at the Amoranto Sports Complex in Quezon City on Tuesday. Distribution will continue the whole day from June 4-5, until June 6 (Friday morning). Status of Jeepney in the Philippines Jeepney today will be replaced because they are getting old don’t have a good condition, they will be replaced by an e-jeepney called “The Comet”.

Oil Price Hike

...mudholes of urban and rural areas– driving was not a problem, typhoons days or monsoon season- ability to cope with the flooded streets from as little as one foot to as high as a meter - was not a problem. Filipino need just to relax because the public utility jeepney is on its way to save the day. Based on the study of JUMSUT, the estimated growth rates from 1997 to 2016 for PUJ, the number of trips is 2.11 with 2.37 vehicle – kilometer. Evolution of Asian Utility Vehicle (AUV) Industry in the Philippines The AUV is viewed as alternative or even substitute mode from the conventional service of PUJ that fits the requirement of new demand, ex-conventional transport riders, and shifted private vehicle users due to oil price hike and traffic congestion and it offers services in addition to the conventional public transport services. In recent years, Filipino commuter demand for more value added service and function, to answer demand for more convenient public utility vehicle. In answer to the need, the multinational automotive manufacturers produced a vehicle that will cater the Filipino. This is the start of the rise of Asian Utility Vehicle (AUV) as substitute to Public Utility Jeepney (PUJ). As Alden Sapit of Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation (2006) stated “as a temporary replacement for other forms of transportation like the taxis, buses, and jeepneys, it captures the heart of the Filipino.” A number of automotive companies......

Canyon Ranch

...Sarah Highman February 22, 2015 Mrs. Karen Crooker Canyon Ranch One service management problem in the Harvard case, Canyon Ranch, is advertising. Service Management is defined as a customer-focused approach to delivering information technology. It focuses on providing value to the customer and also on the customer relationship. Canyon Ranch did not advertise heavily, instead focusing on direct communication and affiliations with similar suitable partners. Canyon Ranch claims that their core strategy is word of mouth and that they’re a word of mouth referral business. They hold customer events and parties and they tell their customers to bring a guest who has never been to Canyon Ranch and does not know much about the company. I believe that if Canyon Ranch would advertise harder they would be able to deliver information about the company to their customers and be able to directly communicate with the customers without the assistance of similar partners. Not knocking the work they have put into the company however if they advertised at strategic locations, like social media for example, they would be able to communicate with a much wider range of people, at a much faster pace. This then allows the company to grow at a much faster, which allows Canyon Ranch to a larger profit margin. This all sounds great except there is another service management problem, Canyon Ranch is carefully selective about their customers. They want people have deep...

Haulage Hike: the War Rages on

...Haulage hike: The war rages on The initial decision of the Indian Railways (IR) to hike haulage charges, effective from December 5, 2014 had sent the Container Train Operators (CTOs) operating in India in a state of frenzy, wherein they are unable to comprehend the reasons behind the steep increase by 27 per cent. Apart from imposing the charges for using railway tracks, signals and telecommunications infrastructure, railways has also demanded a 10 per cent congestion charge on base freight rate for goods that originate at ports. The surcharge, effective since November 24, 2014, is part of a feeble attempt by the government to curtail imports. The Railway Ministry’s decision to implement the haulage hike in two spheres and postponing the execution of the entire hike till March 1, 2015 came after the Association of Container Train Operators (ACTO) submitting a memorandum requesting the Indian Railways seeking respite from the steep rise in haulage prices. Expressing disapproval of the fact that moving goods by rail is set to get costlier after the enactment of the haulage hike, the ACTO members informed that they would have lost a large chunk to road transportation had the government not come out with the partial roll-back. Termed as the ninth round of rate increase in Railways Haulage Charges (RHC) since this sector was deregulated in 2006, the rates for Twenty feet Equivalent Units (TEUs) for 20 feet containers have increased by 31 per cent for containers weighing......

Generic Prescription Drug Cost Hike

...higher rate than other age groups. Both candidates know the importance of these senior citizen votes and believe that the proposal of adding a prescription-drug benefit is something that will appeal to a vast number of senior citizens. Both candidates have portrayed the issue as being very critical and as a serious problem that needs to be addressed. The question, however, is whether or not such drug coverage is a worthwhile project to undertake. Is the problem indeed serious enough to call for the type of reform that the candidates are proposing? Medicare is already a very costly program to keep up, and adding prescription-drug coverage would increase these costs even more. In order to fund this project, there will need to be a tax hike. Should taxpayers subsidize this prescription-drug benefit? Is there a good reason why this redistribution should take place? What are the benefits and costs of this proposal? These and other questions will be addressed in this paper as we examine the following topics: the need for senior citizens to have prescription-drug coverage, the political rhetoric involved with this issue, the projected shortfall in the budget of the Medicare program, and who really would benefit if a prescription-drug benefit was added to Medicare. Need for Prescription-Drug Coverage Many people argue that the lack of a prescription-drug benefit is the major shortcoming of the Medicare program. But are Medicare recipients really in need of such a......

Canyon Ranch

...Cunningham October 1, 2011 Canyon Ranch A visit to Canyon Ranch is to venture into as their slogan extols “the power of possibility”. Its mission as the founders explain it, was created for it to be a place people would be inspired and motivated to translate the healthiest thoughts into action. Canyon Ranch advises those considering entering that “Canyon Ranch is more than a place, it’s state of mind and a way of life” Guests are therefore empowered to take command of their lives through fitness, healthier living, integrative wellness and learning how to deal with stress, all which leads to longer and happier lives. At Canyon Ranch the idea is that one can relax, be happier, get health and experience a more fulfilling life. People have been in quest of this goal for as long as anyone can remember therefore its Canyon Ranch’s aim to be the answer to that quest.. There have been different avenues in which to achieve this and at different levels of involvement. Self-help groups, social interaction, clubs, books, articles, and various DVD’s on the subject. But a Canyon Ranch experience is so much more than any self help book or aid can be but of course at a much higher price. Yet with 230 different services no self help book can match that kind of appeal. At one of the Canyon Ranch locations (with the use of the word “location” is intended to be generic) as Canyon Ranch conspicuously doesn’t necessarily call itself a resort,......

Tuition Hikes in Higher Education

...Tuition Hikes in Higher Education The cost of higher education has been rapidly growing, especially over the past couple of years, there has been a sharp increase. “College tuition and fees today are 559 percent of their cost in 1985” (Rampell). In 2005, the average tuition cost at a public four-year college was approximately $5,000. Today, the average tuition at four-year state schools nationwide rose “faster than inflation…..4.8% increase” (Gordon). This brought tuition at public four-year schools to $8,655. This is happening because of many factors including schools raising tuition to pay for more remedial classes and extra counseling services, to make up for cuts in state funds, and to make up for reductions in the per-student subsidy state taxpayers sent colleges. These in turn have several effects that have an impact on society as a whole, these effects include international students going to schools in other countries because school here is too expensive, young college graduates not being able to afford to buy a home or have children due to their massive debt, parents not being well prepared for retirement since lots of graduates are moving back with their parents and parents are taking money out of their 401K to pay their children’s college loans, but most importantly low income students not being able to go to college because they cannot afford it. The rising cost of college tuition does not just affect the individual; it affects society as a whole since society is...
