How can we evaluate serious connectivity problem with in a specific range of distance?
Posted on 2005-04-02
Consider4 buildings ,A,B ,C and D the distance between buildings A and D is 1 mile and Band C are in between A nd D.
Building A is completely wierd with FDDI and redundant connections from the switches to the servers.
Building D is wired completely with category 5 cabling ,with new compuetrs and fast ethernet cards,new switches and properly working routerssetup.As the network service enters the building over good category 5 cable.Whcih gets its service from Building C which in turns gets it service from building B.
Building B has category 3wiring,and good network functioning.The hub in the building B basement connects directly to the Building A.
Between building B and D is the building C,which has category 5 cabling and an excellent functioning network.
It has no router as it houses its own servers.It has 10/100mbps switch in basement.which connects to both building B and D.
over category 5 cable.
All buildings have direct fuber connections for the phone system and there are extra runs for future technological\telephone services.
The Main question here is why is Building D finding the network so slow?How can we fix the problem at building D.Can anyone let me know what would be the solution for redundant network connectivity and what makes it to be relatively cheap to set up ,can anyone explain me the logic in this question briefly?
