Research and Development Office - 120 workstations

Marketing Department - 40 workstations

Information technology - 130 workstations

Head Office - 60 workstations

This task is further divided into two subtasks;

a) To provide a complete addressing scheme which must be simple and will be done using VLSM. Apart from this, a complete diagram along with all the buildings are designed to show how the devices will actually behave within the network.

b) This subtask will include all the calculations of additional 1024 hosts that can be presumed to be increased per building. 

Referencing: None but not the least, the document will be concluded with referencing which is strictly followed as per The referencing style will be APA and the bibliography will be such that it would support the document in wise manner.
