Hey I'll make this short I need an second opinion on a network, I am working on a project from my class where we need to network a two level office building and a warehouse 1/2 mile away. We cannot use any wireless technology in this project. We came up with using Cat6 in both the warehouse and office building, with Fiber Optic linking the warehouse and office building with stretches 1/2 mile.

Simply put we have the connection coming into the building running into a switch with takes the connection throughout the office via Cat6. Then we have the connection going through a transmitter converting the connection into light traveling the 1/2 mile then passing through a transceiver and another switch connecting the warehouse computers.

For our class it doesn't have to be perfect just if there are any MAJOR flaws please let me know so I can correct them.

I don't really see any major flaws with it other than the cost associated with having the phone company run your fiber on the poles :thumbsup:

What about internet connections at both locations using VPN to connect them???

Thanks for the quick reply since this is just a project we aren't really doing this our professor said we have no budget just explain why you did what you did. I like the idea of a VPN and will most definitely look into that!

Thanks
