I have 8 cameras, each is 1GigE setup with data output of 63-95 Mbytes/sec. Will need to run all 8 at the same time and continuously. How should i setup to link to a PC? Total data flow is around 504-760 Mbytes/sec to PC.
Re: Not sure how to setup a lan with which component
If my math is correct, you should be able to use a switch with 100 Mbps ports for the cameras (or gig ports) and a gig port for the PC. If you use about any switch with gig ports, assuming other ports aren't carrying traffic, any gig switch should carry the load. If you use a switch with 100 Mbps ports and gig uplink port, some inexpensive switches might not be able to carry such a full load.
Several possible candidate swithes with eight 100 Mbps ports and gig uplink (to connect to server) which look able to carry your load include: Cisco Catalyst Express 520-8PC Switch, Cisco Catalyst 2940-8TT, or Cisco Catalyst 2960-8TC-L.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
