Designing a solution for Shine Dental Clinic (Network Solution)
Tom & Steph has recently opened a new clinic “Shine Dental” in Sydney, Australia. They are committed to
provide quality dental services to people of all age group.
They have four (4) full-time surgeons using surgery rooms, (4) assistants, who will be working with the surgeons
while they are performing surgery and, (3) receptionists/admin staff, who will be performing daily management
of paperwork, admin, client consulting and also handle front desk.
The area for the new office is 250 sqm approximately. For detail dimensions and floor-plan refer to Figure 1
The clinic requires 8 workstations, 1 server and a printer and needed to be installed at the following locations:
? One reception desk with space for to place 2 computers (Workstation 5 & 6),
? One small consulting room (Workstation 7)
? One server room with an extra space to place an additional computer (Server, Workstation 8)
? Four surgery rooms (Workstation 1 – 4)
The entire floor divided with each other by drywall sheets. Office is fully furnished. (except computers,
networking devices and cabling)
The owner of “Shine Dental” has purchased eight (8) desktop computers of the same type. Table 1 shows
the sample specification.
In addition to the computers, he has also want to purchase one LaserJet multifunction printer for
print/copy/scan/fax. The printer should have USB 2.0, Gigabit LAN, Wi-Fi(n) and other prominent printing and
All computers/server has got a dedicated screen, in addition to that, there are 4 additional overhead screens
attached in the 4 surgery rooms, for patients to view local TV channels while dental surgery is being performed
on the patients. Those 4 screens are also to be attached to the main computers in the surgery room, so that
when surgeons need to display x-rays to show their patents laying on the bed, patents don’t need to get off the
bed to see what the x-rays would look like. Doctors should be able to display x-rays on the overhead screen for
patients, but simply changing the input on TV, your job is to connect the overhead screen/TV to the computer
as extended display or mirror, and also to the Antenna
You are also required to set up backup for all the computers/server, all the backups should run each night and
should get stored at one physical location within the premises, and a copy of the local backup has to be stored
on to the cloud utilizing one of the cloud services. As a consultant you can choose any cloud service of your
choice, but must provide justification for your recommendation.
Assume that you have been hired as a network technician to help in the design and deployment of this network.
