This is my situation :
I have a building that has 4 floors on each floor a number of pc varying from 5 to 15 PCs
I need to install a networking cables , the best possible (quality/Price of course).
That was my suggestion to the customer....
On each floor we install a switch 1Gb and the cabling be 1Gb and from each floor I get 1 connection
going to the server room (5th floor) .
but he has asked me a question that I could not much answer..
Would there be any bottleneck Vs the topology to send all the PCs connections to the server room ?
Now I have read somewhere that even if your connection is 100Mb (or 1Gb) windows doesnt NEVER use that speed...
it uses a max. of 1 to 2 mb/s so 100 Mb or 1Gb will never be a bottleneck due to the network...
now on the NIC of the server that's another issue..
My question and concern is :
what is the difference in speed between sending 60 cables to the server room (on a switch)
and sending 4 cables to the server room (on a switch ) but those 4 cables would be sent from 4 switches ?
So I am looking for your professional help here.
thanks a lot
