between static and dynamic routing protocols. It also provides default gateway redundancy using a FHRP such as HSRP, Gateway Load Balancing Protocol ﴾GLBP﴿, or Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol ﴾VRRP﴿ to allow for the failure or removal of one of the distribution nodes without affecting end point connectivity to the default gateway RE: Network Design Mini case Eric Flores 9/16/2016 10:05:29 PM Switches and routers are two important networking components on your network. They either connect the necessary computers and peripherals within a network or provide connectivity between more than one network for further data communication. Depending on cost and efficiency, you can obtain different types of switches (i.e. basic switch, smart switch, managed switch). You can even acquire a layer 3 switch which can process some functions as a router. Working at the data link layer, a basic switch uses hardware addressing to provide for a packet switching process to communicate data between computers and peripherals within the same network. Data is also transmitted through applicable ports to prevent collisions. As opposed to hubs, switches also dedicate bandwidth to users with cutting traffic speed in half. Routers communicate between different networks. Working at the network layer, routers use IP addresses and routing protocols to communicate between networking equipment and devices outside of one’s own network. Routers also provide for a type of security by using access lists to allow or deny IP addresses onto or off a network. Cisco. (No date). Networking Basic: What you need to know. Retrieved September 16, 2016 from RE: Network Design Mini case Eric Davis 9/16/2016 10:28:13 PM A managed network switch is configurable, offering greater flexibility and capacity than an unmanaged switch. You can monitor and adjust a managed switch locally or remotely, to give you greater network control. Core Router A router that resides within the middle or backbone of the LAN network rather than at its periphery. In some instances , a core router provides a stepdown backbone , interconnecting the distribution routers from multiple building of a campus ( LAN), or Large enterprise Location (WAN). They tend to be optimized for a high brandwidth. RE: Network Design Mini case Christopher Grindey 9/15/2016 10:13:04 AM Switches and routers need to be considered for most networks. A switch is connection between computers, printers and servers within a building or campus. There are two types of switches, managed and unmanaged. A managed switch can be configured and are used by most companies, an unmanaged switch is a switch that can be used directly from the box, no configuration required and is used by most home networks. Routers are designed to connect networks. Routers connect computers to the internet and acts like a dispatcher, directing the quickest paths for packets to follow. Both of these can be considered for the proposal depending on the overall network itself.
