  • Limit your role play to no more than five to ten minutes.

Part 1: Role play scenario – discussion with client

To complete this part of the assessment, you are required to participate in a role-play with the aid of someone, such as a colleague. Your role play should demonstrate the conversation with your client representative from ABC Company, which you need to act out.

You are required to take a video recording of your role play ad submit it as evidence. Follow the Video recording instructions (pdf) to record and submit your video.

Note: Read the ABC background information which is contained in ICTNWK305_AE_Sk_2of2_SR1.zip and criteria for the role play carefully before performing your demonstration.

Role play scenario:

ABC Company wants to set up a local area network for their business. As the network engineer, you are required to provide advice on communications technologies and the protocols and services that are most appropriate to meet client requirements.

Notes:

  • Your client does not understand technical networking terminology very well so you will need to make sure you use language and communication skills that are appropriate for your client and context.
  • Your assessor will assign a suitable person (e.g. another student) to play the role of the client representative from ABC Company and provide them with the relevant information.
  • Prepare a set of questions you want to ask from your client based on the following:
  1. Client business domain, including client organisation structure and business functionality.
  2. Evaluate client user requirements to provide recommendations for network protocol services.
  • Demonstrate the discussion between yourself and the internal client.
    1. Use questioning techniques to evaluate user requirements and confirm understanding.
    2. Provide clear explanations and recommendations for network protocol services using relevant language suitable to audience to convey requirements.
    3. Use listening skills to respond to the client appropriately.
  • Write a document as a follow-up to the conversation with the client to record your recommendations on communication technologies, industry accepted hardware and software. You must include the following points in your written submission.
    1. Describe the overall client business domain/area. Include client organisational structure and different functions of the business.
    2. Research and list at least three current communication technologies and their associated protocols that would be suitable for ABC Company.
    3. Research and outline industry accepted hardware (at least two) and software (at least two) products with their general features and capabilities that would be suitable for ABC Company.
    4. Clarify vendor product range and development directions as appropriate for ABC Company. (Note: Think about the vendor of the products you have outlined before and research how often a newer product range/model/version could be made available by the vendor. Comment on any other development directions of the vendor.)
    5. Give a basic explanation of two new file systems that you would recommend for a network environment as used by ABC Company.
    6. Give a basic explanation of two user access principles that ABC Company should adopt for their employees.
    7. Give a basic explanation of two disaster recovery procedures that would help ensure the integrity of ABC Company’s data.
    8. Outline two legislative requirements related to keeping the licensing of software products up to date.

Note: You may have to perform further research into some of the areas to obtain relevant and most up to date information.
