hi everyone.... here in our organization we have around 400 users spread over in 4 different building close bye and all there 4 building r interconnected to each other with fibre backbone. curntly we have 15 swithes and 9 hubs and of 15 switches only 4 are managable.
now the company is going for expansion and new servers r to be installed and this site is to be connected to 7 differnt other site thru wan.and this will be main site from where other site user will access the servers and internet. so we r going to remove all the hubs and swithes and change them to cisco swithes.
- is there any requirment for layer 3 switch...which could be a core switch ?.
- should we change all swithes to cisco managable swithes or we should still use the 15 existing swithes ?.
- is there any need for vlan..i think there is.....but will the current swithes will give problem when creating v lans...?
- which cisco swithes we should go for which model.....?
thanks in advance rahul verma
