Cisco Layer 2 Switches
Posted on 2016-10-26
Good Morning All,
This question is for idea purposes, I'm not having any technical issue.
So I have 3 Cisco switches
All three switches are completely separate, on separate subnets.
The user, for some reason, wants to minimize there new rack space(not current) down by utilizing one fiber connection from the three switches into a new switch which is vlan'd accordingly.
Now, right now my plan is to actually just run three ethernets(one from each switch) into an 8 port, then run a single fiber over to the new switch. Obviously creating the trunk for the vlan traffic to pass to the necessary ports on the new switch.
Now, my question is - Does anyone have any better ideas on how to achieve only one connection from the 3 switches to the new switch?
(The switches cannot be on the same subnet, and they must remain in play)
Any ideas welcome :)
