Upgrading to FiberOptic (LAN)
Posted on 2014-09-20
Our hospital has nearly 40+ computers connected via Lan. We have 10/100 Switchers at present.
since the load has started to increase, we see high latency. These lines were laid 15 years back.
So to Update, I planned to change it to Gigabit switches. and the Main switcher and server are one the 5th floor,While most computers (20) are at the 2nd floor,
so is it advisable to change it to a gigabit switch and run a Fiber optic (Duplex, Multimode) to the 2nd floor and have a switcher there? (Other parts, use existing LAN)
Planning to change those computers to Thin or Zero client. And add Wifi AP's.
i would like to know if I've taken the right decision.
