asked on

one point of failure

I'd like to get your thoughts on the redundancy design (see attached). I have the wireless controller and the Websense connecting to the 3750 access switch. That same access switch is also connected to the firewall and then to the Internet. Now my concern is I have one point of failure at that switch. I was thinking to move the controller to another access switch. But I will need to purchase an extra access switch. Any thoughts on making this design more robust. Thanks

No matter what you do, you will have a single point of failure, the wireless controller.  

If you want wireless available for your internal LAN if switch0 goes down, I would suggest moving the controller to one of the core switches.

I have two switches in the core. Isn't the best practice not to connect any single devices to the core? Thx
