Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
Nordsken is a game festival that shows the game and geek hobby to the public. Visitors can join in on tournaments and can try a large variety of computer and board games. Besides this, Nordsken invites different companies and lecturers who tell and show the best from the game and geek hobby.600 participants gathered at Nordsken 2013 and over 1500 visitors came during these 3 days to play games and hangout with likeminded.As being responsible for Nordsken’s network, we had as a task to set up, configure and monitor the network during the entire event and act as support when needed.Ahead of the event a plan was introduced, which involved going through old documentation, buying a new server, renting switches and deployment of these devices. After a logical topology of the network was created, we began to configure all switches, wireless access points and the server.The network was split into three layers, core, distribution and access. The switches within each layer were configured depending on its location and connection. VLAN’s were created and configured into different sections based on the placement of the tables.On the server, we installed two virtual machines with Ubuntu 12.04, one which included all the services and another which included all the management tools that were necessary. The services provided were DHCP for every VLAN, NAT for the Management VLAN and some firewall functionality. The tools that were used were Adiscon LogAnalyzer, FTP, Ubiquity Unifi Controller Software and Cacti with both the plug-ins, Thold and Monitor. Guides for installing and configuring these services are included in this thesis.All in all the event was a success when it comes to planning, installing, managing, and to take it down. The only big problem that occurred was that the wireless network didn´t function as well as we had hoped. We managed to solve the problem somewhat and the event went on as planned.The software that was installed and used on the server was chosen based on our past encounter with them during different labs at the university.
