I am begining to draw up plans for a new network for around 200 users. I was thinking about using Cisco 3750 switches, we do not need to do anything fancy with these switches, just very basic VLAN and routing. I would like to know your thoughts?
Also, I was thinking about getting a Cisco ASA5500 as the secrurity device, that will also provide functionality for remote access etc, as well at standard PIX funtions (DMZ etc)
Would anyonce recommend any alternatives to this, or additional hardware, i.e using a router as a default router rather than the switch.
Also, I would like to know what you all think about prividing Gigabit to users desktops, is it worth it, or only worth providing Gig LAN access to servers etc.
Thanks for all you input, it is greaatly appreciated
Sure, it must be a trunk. As the 2960s don't support ISL, it'll be a dot1q trunk.
