I have a Freind that has a gigbit ethenet infrastructure in his company. Recently he added a fast ethernet switche to his DMZ where all his servers are connected, I suggested to him to go for Gigabit Ethernet Switches as his entire network has Gigabit Ethernet. He told me that since there internet link is only 24Mbps having a Gigabit interface on the DMZ would not make access to servers any faster. However i told him that it would make it faster for people who are accessing the servers from the LAN. i would like to know who's argument is correct and what is the best practise in this regard.
Thanks for your answers,
