Linking two branches through a wireless bridge best practive
Posted on 2010-08-15
I have a head office, which contains all servers, internet gateways and Asterisk PBX.
There will be a new branch connected to the head office through a wireless bridge. It will contain PCs, Printers and IP phones.
Because distance is low ( less than 200 meters), I am getting a very good connection speed between the two offices. (Pings in 17ms).
Currently in our single head office, the network has three linksys SRW24G4 managable switches, and because the network has grown from few users to about 50, we have only one subnet, no vLans, no QoS, nothing else... every thing is basically configured, just connecting all devices in subnet 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 through UTP cables.
Now, I want to rebuild the network infrastructure in the two branches in a professional way, so I need your advice in planning it.
Shall I use one or more subnets? Shall I configure vLan? If so, kindly write some guidelines.
