We recently added some workstation, ip phones and servers to our existing network.
It seem that we need to upgrade our simple network design.
I would really welcome suggestions.
Here is what we actually have:
1x router 2801 w/ CCME & CUE for 16 users
1x Switch CE500 24 port 10/100 w/POE & 2 10/100/1000 BaseT uplink.
14x IPHONE 7931G
1x 7921G wireless IPHONE
2x Wireless Access Point (Linksys and Dlink)
2x Server: 1x IBM xSeries and 1x HP DL160G5, both with 2 gigabytes NIC
Some of our 18 workstation have a Gigabyte NIC also.
We need to increase reliability and if possible performance and plan a little headroom for expansion for future needs.
There is no more available port on our CE switch and our 2 server is already using the 2 available uplink Gb ports.
any idea where we should begin.
budget is the biggest issue.
