Windows 10 tools

As an IT administrator, you have been asked to configure 20 Windows 10 computers on a new network for a branch office that your company is opening. Based on what you have learned in this week’s lesson, discuss how you will configure each system to ensure all systems are properly configured for LAN and WAN access. About half of the computers will be laptops that will used both locally and remotely.

Be sure that you address the following items in your response:

Network model type
IP address type
How will IP addresses be assigned?
Discuss two Windows 10 tools that you think are essential for configuring and troubleshooting Windows 10 network connectivity.

Plan to upgrade more than 100 Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 computers.

In the future, you may be asked to develop a plan to upgrade more than 100 Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 computers.

Describe how you would make the upgrade. Consider the following questions as you formulate your initial post:

Would you preinstall printer drivers, network configs, applications, local policies, Windows update services, security configs, etc.?
What risks are associated with your plan?
What are your assumptions (e.g., user data, wipe and load, etc.)?
What deployment method would you choose (e.g., single machine installs [SneakerNet], ghosting, SCCM OSD [Operating System Deployment])?
Would you prebuild an image?

IT infrastructure

A small but fast-growing company has called you in as a consultant to help with their IT infrastructure. When they first started, they put their business data in the cloud and changed their business processes to fit their SaaS. Now, they want to know if they should customize their SaaS to fit their business processes or keep changing their business processes to fit their SaaS.

Propose a set of 3–5 initial questions you would ask them to help you prepare your recommendation. Be sure to explain why you are asking each question.

Internet of Things (IoT) devices

Internet of Things (IoT) devices that use multiple sensors, actuators, etc are finding their way into our
homes at an alarming rate. The need to store, access, and analyse the data from these devices
becomes increasingly a top priority, mainly due to the requirement to provide real-time monitoring of
activities happening within the home.
In this assignment, you will develop an active control system with the following specifications:

  1. Read data captured from IoT devices that have been stored in text files. The files contain a
    day’s worth of data captured at hourly intervals. You are required to use the code provided (in
    the appendix below) but adapt it to make use of structures.
  2. Process data to activate/deactivate devices. The sensor data is used either to turn ON or OFF
    devices within the rooms being monitored
  3. Display state of devices based on location and/or time.
    The following devices are used as part of the home monitoring system:
    ● Humidity sensors (used to turn ON or OFF a ventilation system)
    ● Internal and external temperature sensors (used to turn ON or OFF a heating system)
    ● Motion sensors (used to turn ON or OFF lights in that room)
    Data Files
    The data files containing the days’ worth of information have been provided (on the Moodle
    assignment link) and contain information at which the sensor data has been recorded. The files are
    named per the location where the data was recorded.
    Each text file contains information in the following order:
    timestamp, outside temperature and inside temperature, humidity, and motion sensors (6 samples
    over a 1-hour slot i.e. one sample every 10 minutes)
    timestamp outside
    temperature
    inside
    temperature
    humidity motion sensors

    Energy Consumption
    Three files are available for data recorded in the living room, bedroom and kitchen. The data
    loaded from these files are then used to:
  4. Decide wherever to turn ON or OFF the associated device (e.g. heating, ventilation, and lights)
  5. Compute the energy consumption based on how long the devices have been ON on a daily
    basis. Daily consumption in per KiloJoules (KJ) is calculated using equation 1.0 below
    Daily Consumption (KJ) = Daily Heating Energy + Daily Ventilation Energy + Daily Light Energy
    Equation 1.0 Energy Consumption
    The information in Table 1.0 indicates the amount of energy consumed per hour when the
    respective devices are ON.
    Table 1.0 Energy Consumption
    Heating 300KJ
    Ventilation 250KJ
    Lights 100KJ
    Functionality and Marking Scheme
    Your program will need the following functionality:
  6. Read/load data from sensor files provided using the ReadDataFunction provided in
    Appendix. Note you will need to request the user to provide a file location as a string for
    each file before running this function.
    a. TimeDat[] for the time
    b. TempArr[][] for the temperatures
    c. HumiArr[] for humidity
    d. MotionArr[][] for motion sensors
    (15 marks for loading data successfully from all three files)

    Your system should therefore provide a menu system that provides options to the user by
    using functions for the following:
  7. Control the state of the devices (turn ON or OFF) based on the user’s specifications
    It is expected the user will supply a threshold for each device, regardless of location, to turn
    ON
    (15 marks)
  8. Calculate the energy consumption per day
    It is expected you will use a 2D array (time v/s device) to store the states of the device at any
    given time. E.g., one table per location. Each element in the array will contain either a 0
    (OFF) or 1 (ON). The program will then use the total units when each device is ON to
    calculate total energy (using equation 1.0 for every location and using table 1.0 to get hourly
    energy).
    Energy consumption calculate is to be added to an Energy Log (Energy.txt) with a timestamp
    of the day that the information was calculated on
    (30 marks)
  9. Write the state of the devices on an hourly basis in three different files (and separate from
    the ones you read in). If the file does not exist, the program should create one for you.
    For each location, write to a follow-up file e.g., KitchenDevices.txt that displays for each
    timestamp, wherever each device was ON or OFF
