Assessment Outcomes
If you have not satisfactorily completed either a Theoretical or Practical Assessment the instructor may request that you undertake the
complete exercise again, or ask you to repeat a portion of the exercise.
Theory assessments where a student has not answered correctly the Instructor may ask the question verbally or provide an alternate
question covering the same aspect of evidence.
Both the Question Asked and Answer Provided MUST be documented on this Student
Assessment Pack next to the question being reassessed.
UNLESS STATED: ALL QUESTIONS MUST BE UNDERTAKEN AND CORRECT FOR COMPETENCY TO BE AWARDED.
Practical Assessments are limited to 2 additional reattempts, where a 2nd reattempt is required it cannot take place on the same day as
the original and 1
st additional reattempt. If a student does not show satisfactory outcome to a practical assessment or a proportion of a
practical assessment after the completion of a 2
nd reattempt the student will be graded as Not Yet Competent. The student will not be
awarded the unit of competency or where the unit forms part of a qualification, the qualification will not be awarded. The scheduling
of the 2
nd reattempt will be at a time of agreement between MILCOM Institute and the student.
The 2
nd reattempt cannot be on the same day as the initial and 1st reattempt.
Completion of Assessment
The student must complete the learner declaration on the last page to validate this assessment.
Outstanding Work
If a student has not submitted all required work for assessment before the end of the subject the instructor will nominate a ‘due date’
for the work. If no due date is provided by the Instructor, then a standard 21 calendar days is implied. If a student fails to submit
outstanding work by the due date the unit may be graded as
Not Yet Competent. Statements of Attainment, and where these units,
form/are part of a qualification, then the qualification cannot be issued, where units are marked as ‘Not Yet Competent’.

Assessment Task 2 Instructions as Provided to Students
Carefully read the following:

You will complete this activity within your RTO. Assume that due to expansion, the RTO owners
have leased an additional floor in the building in which it is located. Based on this the RTO wishes
to implement a WLAN and has contracted you to design the WLAN.
You will participate in a meeting with the client (your assessor) to find out information about the
current network and use this information to document client needs. Following this you will
conduct a site survey and then design the WLAN.

Complete the following activities:
1. Identify client needs and current network configuration.
The first part of this assessment requires you to meet with the client (your assessor) to
discuss their needs in relation to the WLAN.
At the meeting, you will need to:
Discuss needs in relation to the WLAN. This should include their current needs, as well
as any future needs that may impact on the design of the WLAN.
Obtain details of the current network layout and associated parameters including:
o Number of users/computers
o Current server
o Operating system
o Network topology
o Connected devices
o Router, Switches, Gateways
o Configuration layout
o Firewall/Security
o Server names
o IP address information
o System specifications such as CPU, Memory (RAM), Bandwidth consumption
o Internet server provider
o Backup
o Target data rates
o Coverage areas required.
Obtain information on any other relevant factors that may impact on the WLAN.
Take notes during the meeting as required.
During the meeting, you are required to demonstrate effective communication skills
including:
Speaking clearly and concisely
Using non-verbal communication to assist with understanding
Asking questions to identify required information
Responding to questions as required
Using active listening techniques to confirm understanding

2. Develop a Client Needs Report.
Following the meeting you are to prepare a short report that includes:
Details of the current network configuration, network topology and links to the
carrier. You should present this as a diagram.
Client’s current needs in relation to the WLAN.
Client’s future needs that impact on the design of the WLAN.
Use Client Needs Report Template to guide your work.
Submit your Client Needs Report to your assessor.
3. Prepare to conduct a site survey.
Assume that the client has now given approval to proceed with the design of the WLAN.
You are to conduct a site survey that includes both the internal building, as well as outside
of the building. The purpose of the site survey is to collect information on the following:
building type to assess possible interferences
physical infrastructure, for example , number and type of walls, room size.
power and cabling in place.
building aesthetics that may impact on network performance
barriers that may act as interferences both in and outside of the building
physical assessment of existing network infrastructure
quality of radio frequency
any other relevant issues.
Prior to the site survey you are to select the diagnostic tools and measurement processes
relevant to the site survey, as well as the test equipment.
You are also required to explain to your assessor your choice of tools and measurement
processes, as well as test equipment.
You are also required to demonstrate that you can calibrate test equipment. Your assessor
will provide you with test equipment and then observe you calibrating the equipment.
Finally, prior to your site survey, explain to your assessor how you will ensure that you
complete your survey to ensure minimum disruption to the client, as well as a safe
working environment for both the staff, as well as self.
You do not have to submit anything for this task. However, you will need to clearly explain
the above.
4. Conduct site survey.
You are now required to conduct the site survey including:
Using the diagnostic tools, measurement processes and test equipment you identified
previously.
Applying safe working practices as previously identified.
Ensuring minimum disruption to staff as previously identified.
Identifying radio frequency interference issues and sources of such.

Identifying other interference issues including topographic barriers, climate, obstacles,
transmission distances and construction materials.
Considering solutions for radio frequency and other interference issues.
Assessing the optimum location and position of the wireless access points to be
installed, as well as repeaters, routers and other equipment required for the WLAN.
Make notes as you complete your site survey as you will use these to provide a WLAN
design to the client
5. Develop WLAN design.
You are to use the information you have identified from the client and your site survey to
develop a WLAN design. Use the WLAN design template to document your design. Your
design should be clear and logical to facilitate understanding.
Your WLAN design document is to include:
Summary of client needs and current network configurations and topology. This should also
include the estimated network traffic and planned growth as per the client’s future
needs identified.
Results of the site survey specifically issues that impact on the design of the WLAN.
An outline of the interference issues identified during the site survey and how the
WLAN will accommodate these
Specifications for the upgrade of the WLAN including equipment required.
Diagrams that show the best location and position for access points, repeaters,
routers and other equipment included as part of the WLAN.
Cabling plans and repeater links, including power requirements.
Required frequency based on client needs.
Required test and modelling routines for the WLAN.
Use WLAN Design Template to guide your work.
Save your WLAN design for submission at the completion of all activities.
6. Test network.
You are to test the design you have developed for the WLAN. As a minimum you should
test:
Coverage
Performance
Security
Take screenshot of your test and results.
Based on the outcome of the tests, revise your design as required. You will present your
design to the client (your assessor) in Activity 8.
7. Network components recommendations report and implementation plan.
Assume that the client has asked for your advice on vendor products and equipment to
