Step 1: Identify the appropriate VLAN
In the previous labs, you identified VLANs and subnets to be used in the FilmCompany network expansion. For each device listed in the table in the final section of this lab, assign each host the appropriate VLAN based on its description. Record these VLAN assignments in the third column of the table in Step 5.
Step 2: Assign addresses to the devices
In the previous lab, an address range was established for each subnet and VLAN. Using these established ranges and the VLAN assignments to the devices in the previous step, assign a host address to each of the selected hosts. Record this information in the last column of the table in Step 5 of this lab.
Step 3: Define the codes for device naming
From the device information, develop and apply a naming convention for the hosts.
A good naming scheme follows these guidelines:
- • Keep the names as short as possible; using fewer than twelve characters is recommended.
- • Indicate the device type, purpose, and location with codes, rather than words or abbreviations.
- • Maintain a consistent scheme. Consistent naming makes it easier to sort and report on the devices,
and to set up management systems.
- • Document the names in the IT department files and on the network topology diagrams.
- • Avoid names that make it easy to find protected resources.
For each naming criteria, assign a code for type. You will use these codes in different combinations to create device names. In the tables below, create codes for the elements of the device names. Use as many or as few codes as needed.
|Device Type||Type code||Device Purpose||Purpose code||Device Location||Location code|
|Desktop PC||PC||Production||PROD||1st Floor||1FLR|
Step 4: Establish the naming convention
In the spaces below, indicate the order and the number of letters to be used in the device naming. Again, use as many or as few letters as necessary. List the criteria in the blanks and draw a line to indicate the number of letters used. You may also choose to use hyphens (-) or underscores (_) to separate fields.
Step 5: Apply a naming convention
For each of the twelve devices shown in this table, apply the naming convention. Then add these device
names in the appropriate boxes in the topology at the beginning of the lab.

|5||production||Live event production worker (switched)|
|6||support||Human resource clerk|
|8||mobile||Live event mobile worker (audio producer)|
|9||mobile||Live event mobile worker (camera coordinator)|
|11||management||Financial Manager’s computer|
