    Given the company described below with a centralized IT department, analyze the support needs and propose a plan for creating an in-house support desk operation that is capable of meeting these needs. The proposal should include organizational models, staffing, training, etc. and its justification in business terms

    - New hires, 4 weeks initial training
    - Training cost $250/hour
    - Labor cost $20,000 per year loaded cost

    Given the following communications network (data, digital voice, or a combination of these) that includes multiple LAN network circuits and remote access WAN network circuits, analyze the network to determine specific bandwidth needs, and provide a justification of the expense of various options to meet these needs in terms of Return on Investment (ROI), total Cost of Ownership, Cost per Node/Port/Mbit, Payback Period, Net Present Value, or other acceptable measure.

    Strategic Plan
    -Growth in the brokers segment by 300% over 3 yrs
    -IT/Telecom to become a revenue center
    -Technology as a competitive advantage
    -Technology as a one-stop shop i.e.. The brokers pay a monthly fee for all technologies.
    -Employee growth by 300 over 3 yrs. 200 LA 50 Boston 50 NYC

    We don't do homework questions here. YOU were given the assignment for YOU to learn. There are plenty of resources on the WEB for you to research this.

    If you come up with your own answer and post it for us to critique that is within reason. If you have some SPECIFIC questions that you couldn't find or didn't understand, we may help with that. But this is YOUR assignment, show us you have at least attempted to complete it on your own.
