Assignment 1: LASA 2: Wireless Needs Assessment Report
Description of LASA:
Many organizations will participate in a formal needs assessment before implementing a technological solution. For this assignment you will identify an organization for research (it may be the one which you are already familiar with) and create a 10- to 12-page wireless needs assessment report for the same.
Create a 10- to 12-page wireless needs assessment report by answering the following:
Part I: Overview of Organization (approximately 23 pages)
Part II: Assess Current Network (approximately 3 pages)
Note: Wireless technologies may be faster than already implemented wired network infrastructure requiring an upgrade to physical cable to support the new speeds.
Part III: Create a Vendor Comparison Chart (approximately 2 pages in chart format)
Part IV: Describe Site Surveys (approximately 2 pages)
Part V: Offer Recommendations (approximately 1 page)
Provide a recommendation to the organization on whether it should proceed with its wireless program.
Note: Your report should utilize at least three scholarly or professional sources (beyond your textbook). Your report should be written in a clear concise and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources (i.e. in APA format); and display accurate spelling grammar and punctuation.
