Sunshine healthcare Corporation runs a small but rapidly growing medical equipment catalog sales business. It outsourced its Web operations to a local ISP for several years but as sales over the Web have become a larger portion of its business, it has decided to move its Web site onto its own internal computer systems. It has also decided to undertake a major upgrade of its own internal networks. The company has two buildings, an ofï¬ce complex, and a warehouse. The two-story ofï¬ce building has 60 computers. The ï¬rst ï¬‚oor has 40 computers, 30 of which are devoted to telephone sales. The warehouse, located 400 feet across the companyâ€™s parking lot from the ofï¬ce building, has about 100,000 square feet, all on one ï¬‚oor. The warehouse has 15 computers in the shipping department located at one end of the warehouse. The company is about to experiment with using wireless handheld computers to help employees more quickly locate and pick products for customer orders. Based on trafï¬c projections for the coming year, the company plans to use a T1 connection from its ofï¬ce to its ISP. It has three servers: the main Web server, an email server, and an internal application server for its application systems (e.g., orders, payroll).
