Network Design

Network design involves the process of planning, creating, and implementing a computer network that efficiently and effectively meets the requirements of an organization. It encompasses various elements to ensure seamless communication and data exchange among connected devices. The changing landscape of technology coupled with the daily administration tasks and remediation requirements of physical server infrastructures can hinder companies in their ability to grow their IT environments to meet the needs of their business . THE ICT WEB offers Enterprise Network Design & Management to help you manage you IT infrastructure, the lifeline of your business enterprise.

Our Client is Canada’s largest healthcare facilities and addiction teaching hospital, as well as one of the world’s leading research centers in the area of addiction and mental health. They combine clinical care, research, education, policy development and health promotion to help transform the lives of people affected by mental health and addiction issues. As part of their network design project, our Client expressed a need for a high-capacity, high-bandwidth network to meet their evolving business requirements. Increasing bandwidth demands, more sophisticated clinical applications, and lack of flexibility drove the approval to fund a new network infrastructure. We were tendered and selected from the list of respondents due to the technological strength and competitive pricing of their proposal.

Stages involved in the network design and implementation

  1. Requirements Gathering
  2. Network Planning
  3. Designing Network Topology
  4. Procurement and Installation
  5. Configuration and Testing
  6. Monitoring and Maintenance

To enhance patient care and research capabilities, the existing networking infrastructure needed an upgrade to support server virtualization, data archiving, video conferencing, and power over Ethernet. Additionally, the network needed to be equipped with increased physical and logical redundancy, port capacity, and bandwidth, while being future-proof and centrally-manageable. All of these requirements had to be met while ensuring that the existing network remained fully operational around the clock, every day of the year.


Addressed the customers need for a centralized network management platform by implementing a Network Management software. This provided the client’s IT resources with a tool to simplify hardware configuration, issue troubleshooting, and network monitoring.
Security – Designed and implemented configurations to improve the existing level of security on the network. Some examples include;

  1. ACL’s were created to restrict traffic to & from specific subnets
  2. Telnet/HTTP access restricted in favor of SSHv2 (for hardware CLI access), and HTTPS (for management software web access)
  3. TFTP restricted in favor of SCP for all config file transfers
  4. RADIUS authentication utilized for switch logins vs local users

THE ICT WEB successfully designed and implemented a high-performance, fully-redundant, and easily-scalable IP network utilizing hardware and software. The project scope consisted of removing and replacing the existing IP networking hardware at the facility’s three main campuses. The Existing network consisted of a single subnet for all end-user and infrastructure devices. A VLAN scheme was created to segregate users based on department in order to more efficiently apply security policies. Also, devices requiring traffic prioritization such as VoIP phones, video conferencing, and IP security systems were placed in separate VLAN’s and QoS policies applied.
