Network newbie here!
What is the maximum number of segments I can have on a 100BaseTX network?
I would like to network call entry devices for elevators in a high rise building. There would be a maximum of say of 8 call entry devices per floor but there could be a lot of floors e.g. 30.
My original thought was to place an 8 port switch on every floor and daisy chain all the switches but that adds up to 29 switches!?
Is this a sane approach?
