Hello All,
I'm doing a study for a research paper and i was wondering if some of you would be available to help. All i need is the following information answered about your workplace LAN. Doesn't have to be detailed. Thank you..

The physical extent of the LAN (number of buildings)

The number of users.

The number of nodes and workstation types (i.e., Pentium, etc.).

The number of servers.

The applications (i.e., e-mail, Windows, MS Office, etc.).

The architecture (i.e., client/server, peer-to-peer, mainframe, segmented, etc.).

The topology (i.e., bus, ring, star, etc.).

The media (i.e., UTP, STP, Coaxial cable, Fiber, etc.).

The connections (i.e., Hubs, repeaters, bridges, gateways, etc.).

The NOS (i.e., Novell, Windows NT, UNIX, etc.).

The LAN Management (i.e., administrator, help desk, etc.).
