Setting up a medium size college network!
So I am a networking student trying to give some suggestions to the Admin about our schools network.
Set up is like this, the network is connected by an OLD congested 48 port 10 100 hub connected to 20+ classrooms (which also has a hub, wireless access point and shared printed and IP phone) with 21 computers in each classroom.
In addition there are 4 servers. The database, email, web and directory (NEW). (Directly connected to main hub)
There are also 16 teachers computers directly connected to the main hub & 4 admin computers connected to the main hub. The main hub connects to the NAT router and has a firewall.
My first suggestion was obviously to use of cat 6e & and the use of a switch. Due to the problems with the congestion and slow traffic.
What changes would make most sense, equipment, and set up. Basically i am looking at technical changes, mostly related to networking hardware in such a set up.
