Suppose you have been hired by a SNHUConsulting, a leader in information technology. Widget Wonders is a worldwide leader in widgets. It is building a state-of-the-art facility to manufacture and distribute the next generation of widgets. SNHUConsulting has been retained to implement information technology on the expansion project.

The new facility for Widget Wonders will be the main manufacturing and distribution center in the United States. The network in the distribution center will connect to the main network located at headquarters. The various departments in the distribution center, the number of employees, and the hardware and software deployed are listed below:

·         Sales (50 employees): touchscreen laptops running Windows 8, Office 2013, MySQL, and security software
·         Manufacturing (45 employees): desktop PCs running Windows 7, Office 2013, and security software
·         Inventory Control (30 employees): laptops running Windows 8, Office 2013, MySQL, and security software
·         Research and Development (20 employees): iMac computers running OS X Mountain Lion, MS Office for Mac, AutoCAD for Mac, and security software
·         MIS (5 employees): desktop PCs running Windows 8, Office 2013, administrative tools, and security software

Access points and switches are used to connect the various departments. All printers are network printers connected to switches. Routers and firewalls have been implemented to provide network protection and to connect the manufacturing facility to headquarters. As part of the expansion team, you will troubleshoot problems that occur during and shortly after implementation. Widget Wonders utilizes new technology in its operations while keeping an eye on the budget. The widget industry is very competitive, and company assets must be protected from rival companies. Use this information when completing your exam.
