Hello i have been given a side project while i am studding my Masters, i am not graded on it but i really want to do it for my portfolio.
The project is for Sun Seeker as they want to create a design the can be used on all there yachts “sounds like i should be paid, but im not ” And this is my first ever networking project, why they choose me I don’t know. Either way it is a massive responsibility and i must do a presentation about it.
They are fixed on the design using a Peplink router, a switch layer 2 or 3, and a wifi transmitter. I just need to say how they should best be interconnected and how, I assume a VLAN setup. Maybe as its such a investment for peplink i could get some direct help from there support but for now i ask you the members what you think of this, i have looked at the peplink demo config page and it seems to support VLAN and remote access, i just need to know if its going to be straight forward and if i can make it more robust, I have CCNA 1-2 and CCNP 1-2 but this is not Cisco gear with no CLI just a GUI so assume it should be easy ??
here is what they told me:
The yachts they manufacture currently have three separate LANS :
- Yacht Power, water, engine and emergency systems based on a Wago industrial control system using an industrial screen controller interface.
- Navigation system SIMRAD
- Entertainment system Sonos / Smart TV this connects to Wifi or Lte using a Pepwave router
They are all interconnected by ethernet with separate IP addressing schemes
The IP address scheme for the "they left this blank "
The Aim of the project is to interconnect all three Systems to fulfil future requirements of :
- Remote monitoring and upgrade of Control systems
- Using SIMRAD front end as a user control screen with HTML5 application
I have loads of pictures they gave me on the prototypes but i would have to upload them to the cloud…
