I am confused in my network design. basically what we have is:
6 Cat Switches 3560E 1 per floor
2 Cat Switches 6509 (core switches).
The design is currently as the following:
each one of the 3560 switches configured with 3 VLANs.
And those VLANs goes to the core switch via EIGRP routing and not by using VLAN Trunking.
From what I understand is this is not optimal solution because the core switch (6509) will have to process packets in software bases. because the floor switches are announcing their VLANs as EIGRP routes.
Is this the best possible way to design the network? or do you recommend that I use VLAN trunks between the core switch and the floor switches?
