I would like some advice on a business project I am looking at.
I have to provide a solution for managed offices, and would like advice on what is the industry standard if there is such a thing.
I will have approx 20 offices with varying numbers in each.
I require that each office has DHCP and provides Ip addresses relevant for that office, I want each office to have DHCP but no offices to be able to see the others network.
In addition to this Anyone wanting a sharred internet to see the gateway.  fro ppl needing dedicated a seperate connection will be provided.
If anyone is used to this type of environment any advice would be very welcome.
I do have a budget so consider this when not recommending that I use 10K worth of switches.
(The capacity will be for upto 300 clients. I wlll also be using the switches for VOIP aswell)

The simplest way is to give each office its own network (or networks) and use ACLs to prevent them from communicating with each other.

I may have a number of small offices with 2 or 3 people and also what about the DHCP.  At this stage NO Servers are involved.

You can run DHCP on the switch/router at each site, or at the main office with ip helper addresses at each branch.
