overwhelming trying to design fast reliable network with the least down time when switching
Posted on 2014-01-28
I am going to try my best to describe this as best as possible.
90 host (25)- printers
1 SBS 2008 rs DC,
1 office server 2008 ( data and software licenses server-proxy- proxyfence),
1 2003 storage server
2003 lisc server, ftp and tape backup.
5 public IP address-
Comcast Business gateway
3 2722 dell switchs
3 cisco AP
* no patch panels just long patch cables ran all over 60k sqft
It seems like from the network map everything is going straight to the gateway
I just started at this company and there network speeds are slow and not achiving full Internet speeds and always getting errors, packet flooding.
So i wanted to start on the re wire and add more industrial hardware, keep in mind the way it is wired now-there is no patch panel just long patch cables ran throughout the building. I am starting with the re-wire and better hardware.
CAT6A- (patch panel,keystone jacks, etc..)
mikrotik CCR 1016-12g, CRS125-24g-15-RM x2.
4 post rack
Now my plan is to have everything configured in the new network before i switch servers over and the host's.
I have a tendency to over think, and would like some other ideals other than mine. This is my first overhaul while there is already a live network in place and the smallest network i have done.
should i subnet? there are three departments
should i obtain more routers?
