Campus NetworksThis document is intended for consumers and enterprise systems engineers who are developing or intend to construct an enterprise campus network and demand style most effective practice recommendations and configuration examples. In the previous, network designers had only a restricted number of hardware options—routers or hubs—when buying a technologies for their campus networks. A higher capacity, centralized server farm provides resources to the campus, and when combined with Cisco IOS, network management methods support QoS, security, troubleshooting, and other popular management attributes from finish to finish.

With the advent of such technologies as Layer 3 switching, LAN switching, and virtual LANs (VLANs), building campus networks is becoming extra complicated than in the past. Campus topologies with redundant network paths can converge more quickly than topologies that depend on redundant supervisors for convergence. All networks created with ConceptDraw PRO are vector graphic documents and are readily available for reviewing, modifying, and converting to a range of formats (image, HTML, PDF file, MS PowerPoint Presentation, Adobe Flash or MS Visio 2010, 2013).

The Cisco Catalyst 6500 and 4500 switches can help redundant supervisor engines and offer L2 Stateful Switchover (SSO), which ensures that the standby supervisor engine is synchronized from an L2 perspective and can quickly assume L2 forwarding responsibilities in the event of a supervisor failure. It contains the type of detail … Continue reading >>>
