Is it better to have managed switces in a chain or a loop?
Posted on 2008-10-01
My company wants to install 6 managed switches om different floors connected via fiber modules. We already have the fiber panels in place, so it is just a matter af connecting the switches. I want to know if it is better to have them in a loop or a chain. The latter will spare us having to buy two extra gigabit fiber transceiver modules and cable for them to complete the loop. The switch which will have the servers on it will be in the basement, which means at the end of the chain, not in the middle.
