Infrastructure Test Lab

The infrastructure test lab provides an environment that simulates the production network at the State of Indiana.  Their infrastructure is such a complex environment that changes to that environment can have the potential to cause large scale outages.  To minimize this possibility a dependable test environment that simulates production is required.  The goal of this project is to implement such a lab.

Server Room Maintenance

The goal of this project was to organize the server room to create a sense of clarity with the cables that were running into the room.  Each cable was traced back to the correct computer and the cables were ran so they were more manageable.  This maximized the amount of space available and made it more efficient for appropriate personnel to easily find cables.  The extra computers that were located in the server room were organized on to shelves to maximize storage space.

Network Maps

The desired outcome of this project was to diagram and document the infrastructure of the lower university department’s labs.  The diagrams were created using Microsoft Visio.  This diagram serves as a valuable tool when tracing networking issues.

Rebuilding and Testing Computers

The purpose of this project was to rebuild and test older computers for a university department hardware class.  Each individual component of the computer was tested to ensure functionality. This was done by removing components one by one from the older computers and plugging them into a known working computer.

University Department TV

This project was based around a TV that is displayed in a university department.  This TV is used to display information about several departments.  The TV was purchased through the university and a computer needed to be purchased and built to display the videos for the departments.
