Figure of Aphrohead.com, The information provided to the customer about the books is that they show one book in big detail of picture form and others in small slideshow form. They show only book publisher not an author. But they a little explain about the books. They frequently tell the books’ price, and just recommend to press “click here” button. They listed the books in their relative categories by Name. They have up to 2,000,000 books, from 25,000 publishers. They provide their books of the year (they recommended books) up to 40% off. They give free delivery worldwide for customers. If the customer orders the books, they used signing in(for old customers)or creating new account.

www.powells.com

In powells.com,they shows the books’ information by showing face of the books, displaying both authors and publishers of the books. A little explained about what kind of books are. They instruct the books’ price. The big picture of the book in home page is they recommended book and offer discount up to 30% off. They offer to search books by going to browse by subject tab. They separately illustrate bestseller books in new tab. The bestseller is arranged by rating, most customer recommended books.

The most important option is that they provide customers to resale used book. So the customers who buy in this sites have more chances than other book selling sites..If you want to order the books, simply select the login or cart button. They attract the customers who order the book by showing “free shipping on orders of $50+ used and new books” option .

B)The method and hardware for recording new stock items, including their location in a large warehouse.

The costs associated with RFID tagging have fallen over recent years, and continue to do so, to bring the process within the reach of more and more businesses. The benefits of more efficient stock control and improved security make it particularly attractive to retailers, wholesalers or distributors who stock a wide range of items, and to manufacturers who produce volume runs of products for different customers.

If we receive our order, we will use the RFID reader and store in the stock database.

The Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) can be in stock to identify the each books or the book packages. The RFID tag is the little tiny chip, which contain the digital information of the product and they are encapsulated in the plastic or paper and other material. They are fixed to the packages of product or the container which they carry the packages. This tag is can be read by the RFID reader which transmits by radio frequency from the tag to the RFID radar. So we can easily to record the new stock item.

We will place this device entrance of the Amazing books warehouse and when we record the each item we have to use the portable RFID.

C)The method and hardware for processing order

The customer can be order form the website by searching their favorite books. The customer can be search by the title by category (such as stories, histories, and biographies) and also by author. After searching their favorite books the customer will click on the “add to cart” button. When the customers click on the “add to cart” button, the registration page for delivery will appear. After the customer filled their information, we will give the customer ID and customer passwords by using email.

And also can be order by using phone or Fax. If the customer order by or Fax , our sale staff will record customer order.

The methods and hardware for recording items dispatched

If we get order from the customer we have to prepare for delivery to the customer. In the process of delivery we have to record the delivery item by using the RFID tag and reader. We will attach the RFID tag on each books package, container or delivery van. When the book packages, containers or delivery van pass through the RFID reader, it will record and store on the delivery database.

The process for determining and flagging up stock reorder level

If Amazing books get many orders we have to prevent the out of stock. So we should determining and flagging up the recorder levels. It depend on the sale history and demand and how many time take to reach to stock reorder level form the first time order.. We have to make reorder schedule with the supplier. This schedule will make by the computer stock order database, sale database and current stock control database.

Amazing books will have to make minimum stock levels to prevent the out of stock. The time between first reorder and minimum stock levels are known as lead time. This lead time use demand-based inventory reorder system. It can modify the stock reorder levels base on sales records. And reorder levels can be easily estimated. The system constantly monitors re-order levels against real-time inventory on hand. Reorder point can also be adjusted when necessary.

NEED TO ADD ONE MORE POINT FOR “ HOW TO ACCESS STOCK CONTROL SYSTEM”

Enterprise Networking Assignment Task 3

Basic types of the topologies

There are three basic types of the topologies:

Bus Topology

Star Topology

Ring Topology

Bus Topology

A bus network topology is a network architecture in which a set of clients are connected via a shared communications line, called a bus. Bus networks are the simplest way to connect multiple clients, but may have problems when two clients want to transmit at the same time on the same bus.

Advantages

To extend easy of and carrying out

Adapted of Sink for of the nets of the temporary ones or the small of that the speed of demands the high ones.

Defects of cable are easily identified.

Disadvantages

If there is a problem with the cable, the whole network goes down.

The maintenance costs can be higher with longer uses.

Significant capacitive load.

That functions better with the limited number of nodes.

 

Star topology

The star networks are one of most common network topologies. In its simpler form, a star network is composed of an exchange to commutate, hub or computer, which act as a conduit to transmit messages. Thus, nodes of hub and sheet, and the lines of transmission between them, form a graph with the topology of a star. An active star network, an active central node which has usually the means of preventing echo-related problems.

Advantages

A better execution: The going beyond of the package of data by useless nodes is prevented by this topology.

Insulation of the devices: Each device in oneself is insulated by the bond which connects it to the hub. This nature of insulation also prevents any failure not-centralized to affect the network.

Advantages of centralization: Because the central hub is the bottleneck, can help to measure the network very easily.

Simplicity: It is easy to include/understand, establish, and direct topology

Disadvantages

-The primary education disadvantage of a star topology is the high dependence of the system with regard the operation of the central hub.

-The execution and the scalability of the network also depend on the possibilities of the hub.

- The size of network is limited by the number of reports.

-Wiring to the top of the system can be very complex.

Ring topology

A ring network is a network topology in which each node connects to exactly two other nodes, forming a single continuous pathway for signals through each node, a ring. Data travels from node to node, with each node along the way handling every packet.

Advantages

Very ordered network where each device has access to the mark and at the time of transmitting

Carry out better than a star topology under the heavy load of network

Can create to employ network much larger Token Ring.

Do not require a network server to control connectivity between the computers.

Disadvantages

A working station of malfunction or bad port in the MAU can create problems for the whole network

The movements, is added and the changes of the devices can affect the network

The charts and the MAU of adaptor of network are much more expensive than Charts and hubs of Ethernet.

Cables using to connect the network topology

Coaxial cable

Coaxial cable, or coax, is an electrical cable with an inner conductor surrounded by a tubular insulating layer typically of a flexible material with a high dielectric constant, all of which are surrounded by a conductive layer, and finally covered with a thin insulating layer on the outside. Coaxial cable is used as a transmission line for radio frequency signals, in applications such as connecting radio transmitters and receivers with their antennas, computer network (Internet) connections, and distributing cable television signals.

Advantages

-Broadband system-Coax has a sufficient frequency range to support multiple channels, which allows for much greater throughput.

-Greater channel capacity-Each of the multiple channels offers substantial capacity·

-Coax provides greater bandwidth system wide, and it also offers greater bandwidth for each channel.

-Co ax’s has Lower error rates and can reduce noise.

Disadvantages

- The bus topology in which coax is deployed is susceptible to congestion, noise, and security risks.

-The return path has some noise problems, and the end equipment requires added intelligence to take care of error control.

-Installation costs in the local environment are high.

-Coaxial cable may be damaged by lightning strikes.

Optical fiber cable

An optical fiber (or fibre) is a glass or plastic fiber that carries light along its length. Optical fibers are widely used in fiber-optic communications, which permits transmission over longer distances and at higher bandwidths (data rates) than other forms of communications. Fibers are used instead of metal wires because signals travel along them with less loss, and they are also immune to electromagnetic interference. Specially designed fibers are used for a variety of other applications, including sensors and fiber lasers.

Advantages

-The advantages of the optical fiber-system are higher far with the problems.

- One single mode fiber can replace a metal cable that is thousands of times larger and heavier.

-Multi-mode optical cable has a larger diameter and can be used to carry signal over short distances.

Disadvantages

- Single-mode optical cable (the type used for communications) has a core as fine as a human hair.

- The ends of the optical fiber must be highly polished to allow light to pass with little loss.

- There is the problem of converting back and forth from a light signal to an electrical signal.

Twisted pair cable

Twisted pair cabling is a form of wiring in which two conductors (the forward and return conductors of a single circuit) are twisted together for the purposes of canceling out electromagnetic interference (EMI) from external sources; for instance, electromagnetic radiation from unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cables, and crosstalk between neighboring pairs.

Advantages

It is a thin, flexible cable that is easy to string between walls.

Because UTP is small, it does not quickly fill up wiring ducts.

UTP costs less per meter/foot than any other type of LAN cable.

Disadvantages

Twisted pair’s susceptibility to the electromagnetic interference greatly depends on the pair twisting schemes staying intact during the installation.

As a result, twisted pair cables usually have stringent requirements for maximum pulling tension as well as minimum bend radius.

This relative fragility of twisted pair cables makes the installation practices an important part of ensuring the cable’s performance.

Recommendation

The network topology that I want to use to build in a Local Area Network is star topology. Because an active star network, an active central node which has usually the means of preventing echo-related problems. It has a Better execution, Insulation of the devices, Advantages of centralization and Simplicity. The local area networks organized around the active stars are portable, flexible and expandable. And I want to use fiber optic cable to build in a Local Area Network. A fiber optic cable transmits data much faster over long distance than others. And it has small diameter and less weighs. Making it ideal for a variety of cabling solutions. Fiber cables are immune to RFI(Radiofrequency Interference) and EMI (Electromagnetic Interface)making them ideal for applications where close proximity to electronic devices can cause RFI and EMI disruption. They are generally non-flammable, virtually unable to be tapped, and better suited for data and illumination transmission.

Enterprise Networking Task 4

The Courier-Contact online courier order management system enables our courier business to provide order processing and dispatch management services to our customers. With our web-based services, small and mid-size courier companies can compete with UPS and FedEx!

Simply set up an account to use their system, and our customers can enter pickup and dispatch orders, get automatic price quotes, track waybill processing, search and download waybill records, and even receive and pay our invoices - all online. And you can monitor the progress of all orders entered into the system from your online dispatch console.

The client-side lets our customers enter pick-up orders, trace waybills, communicate with dispatch, search & download prior waybills and to receive and pay our invoices online. Where our receive orders and messages from our customers, assign orders to drivers.

We have to use software for delivery book packages to the customer. So Installation of corporate software applications:

ERP;

OSS;

CRM;

ECM;

Computer-based corporate training systems (developing of corporate university).

We will record the delivery item by using the RIFD tag and reader. This RFID will attach on the book packages, container or delivery van. When the book packages, container or delivery van pass through the RFID reader, it will record the digital ID form the RFID tag.

After that it will store in the delivery database. The sale manager will check this delivery database and this information will provide to the customer.

Enterprise Networking Assignment Task 5

A)The Prevention of theft and the monitoring of theft(for stock security)

The electronic methods used to reduce the stock level, possibilities of company staff from stealing stock are

-CCTV (Using Closed Circuit Television)

-Door with Key Security (Only work with Password)

-Lighting the Room (Dark Place is Easier to Stole)

-Finger Print Security

-RFID tag(For container)

CCTV system are used to watch the important place, such as Data Room. CCTV has become commonplace in many organizations and can be a very helpful means of building safer environments. However, there is a lot to get right to make CCTV as an effective tool.

Door with Key Security need a password to enter the room. If the password are wrong, the security system connected with the door is operates and alerts the security manager to know this is not a right person want to enter the room.

Lighting the Room

It is as well as critical to consider lighting levels (or operating infra red cameras which can notice in the dark place).The lighting room is more secure for data safe than a dark room. The stock thefts are afraid of lighting in the room.

Finger Print Security

Finger print security system is one of the most secure security systems. It operates with under the user’s true fingerprint mark and no one can access to this system without the authorized person.

B)Adjusting the stock levels when thefts are occurs

When the stock theft are occur in the company, the manager check the stock records and decide how to adjust for incoming stock levels which may be over-stocking or under-stocking. In this case the he should track how the stock theft got the stock amount and how to reduce the stock that had been stolen. And he made to control the stock level .He may clear this problem first or he may check the stock first ,depend on his decision.

Recommendation for stock security of Task 5

For our company we will use the CCTV network systems to control the stock security and monitoring the staff. We will set the finger print systems for authorized persons such as stock manager. We will provide the fully lighting for prevent theft. RFID tag for the package and container for record current stock. It easily to check the stock and if any fraud, the stock manager can known easily.
