Catalyst 2960-8TC-L isolate guess access

We want to add guest service to our wireless network(802.11).

Our controller connects directly to our core switch at the moment.

Our Internet service goes through a ADSL2 Modem.

Core sw ------ Controller

*****************Modem ------ Internet

Since our controller has only one physical port, it cannot

physically connect to the modem and we don't want to connect

the modem directly to our core switch, so we have to put a

device at the following position(see diagram below), which

will basically isolate the traffic between the modem

and core switch. In the future we will deploy firewall/IDS

appliance to protect the core switch.

Do you have any suggestions regarding this device?

Currently we are considering Catalyst 2960-8TC-L switch.

But not sure if it is the best solution.




core sw ------ Device?()



****************Modem ------ Internet

Thank you in advance
