I am designing a new network(LAN network) in an ar
ea and i want to connect different buildings . My main node (Switch L3) is
at the center of the area. For decrease the cost i tried not to put any fiber optics so
i designed the LAN with CAT 6 (underground cable). The problem that i face is
that in order to succeed(because distance between Switch and Switch must not be more than 100m)
i connect in series 5 switches(all cisco 2960 model) including the
central L3 switch(4507 Series). 4507->2960->2960->2960->2960.
Does anyone tell me if i will face a problem with bandwidth, delay, loss packets of this design?
If yes shall i use Fiber Optics for the solution?
How many Switches is the max in serial connection for good quality traffic?
All Switches are 10/100/1000 Mbps ports.
Thanks for your time
