hi,


1) First question, What the best Backbone & layer 2 switch (must support Trunking) i'll buy on this scenario


Backbone Switch(support ACL)locate at Server room

Layer 2 Switch (support Vlan)use for every floor Switch.

For Example for backbone, we configure 6 Vlan with different IP address.

For each Floor we configure Different Vlan Example

first Floor on ly have 2 Vlan ( Vlan 1 and Vlan 3).

2nd Floor only 3 Vlan ( Vlan 1 3 and 6).

and same other....which configure different Vlan.

2 ) Second question, is there a way that we can configure Trunk Vlan to make backbone and layer 2 switch communicate because each Floor only have one cat6 cable to connect to backbone switch..?

3) Can we assign Ip address of each Vlan to become a gateway for each pc assign on the Vlan..?


Thanks in advance

HI, [Pls Rate if HELPS]


Backbone Switch:

CISCO Cat 4000 Series Switches


L2 Switches:

CISCO 2950 Switches


Eg: Trunk Scenario

Floor I port 1/24 (trunk) ==> Server Room

Foor III port 1/24 (trunk) ==> Server Room


Trunk Port:

>> Will carry all VLAN Traffic to the Server Room Backbone Switch


Eg: VLAN as Gateway Scenario

VLAN2: 10.1.0.0 (Subnet)

Gw: 10.1.0.1

VLAN3: 10.2.0.0 (Subnet)

Gw: 10.2.0.1


The 1st IP Address of each VLAN Subnet can be used as VLAN Router IP and same as GW for CLients.


Hope this Helps

HI, [Pls Rate if HELPS]


Go-ahead and pls see it supports all your Backbone Requirements as planned.


Organization Size / Density: Medium-Sized means it is recommended.


Refer link below for CISCO Cat 3560 Data Sheet:
