Hi all,

We currently have 7 sites connected to the 192.168.0.0 /24 network and we are running out of IP addresses - only 3 currently available in the DHCP range (100-254), and 12 left in the static range (1-99).

I would like to restructure the network so that each site is on its own subnet, and also implement VLANs for Voice and Data at each site, something like this:

SAN: 192.168.99.0   VLAN 99
VMOTION: 192.168.101.0   VLAN 101
MGMT: 192.168.0.0   VLAN 1

SITE 1
DATA: 192.168.10.0   VLAN 10
VOICE: 192.168.11.0   VLAN 11

SITE 2
DATA: 192.168.20.0   VLAN 20
VOICE: 192.168.21.0   VLAN 21

SITE 3
DATA: 192.168.30.0   VLAN 30
VOICE: 192.168.31.0   VLAN 31

ETC...


I know this is a broad question, but I am not sure where to start. What do I need to do to keep everything operational while I implement the changes? Would this layout work?

We have 13 servers, 90 desktops, 61 IP phones, 30 network printers, 18 managed switches, 1 firewall, and 42 other devices on the network like wireless access points, cameras, and energy panels. Around 40 users access the wireless network with their own devices in addition to their desktops (iPhones, tablets etc.)

The need to change is immediate, as very soon there will be no more IP addresses available.

Where should I start? Please help experts!
