Connecting two sections in a large factory via wireless (bridge mode?)
Posted on 2011-09-27
I currently run the network at a rather large factory (110,000 sq. ft) and we've acquired another building around 250,000 sq ft. The place was fully wired but some areas of the plant are not wired. The ceilings are enormous and it is not worth it for us to run fibre from one section to another. My question is: can we have section of the shop connected to the other via Cisco Aironets in bridge mode, and the bridge acts as a 'wire' between the switches and network on one side of the plant connecting the other side? I am looking at the Cisco 3500 Series and we run Cisco Switches.
West Side Lan, with an Aironet connected to one of the switches, and the east side lan with an aironet connected to that switch, and each aironet in bridge mode?
