I currently have a network running IP cameras, PC's and other stuff.
I am thinking of getting some VLAN switches and using them to separate the IP cameras and the main network. I am just looking for some advice on the best way to do this.
I have purchased some HP switched that allow you to setup VLANs so I have gotten that far.
I am thinking of using a Draytek and having VLAN 1 setup for the main network and VLAN 2 for the IP Cam network. Then for example on the HP switches (48 port) I can setup the first 24 ports on VLAN 1 and the second 24 ports for VLAN 2.
The question i mainly have, is for example as I have a few switches, I will need to link them all together, would I need to link 2 cables from the core switch to each other switch, one for VLAN 1 and one for VLAN 2 or are there other ways to do this?
I am not sure if this is what VLAN tagging is for so if someone could explain that to me that would be excellent too!
Let me know if there are any other ways.
Each switch will be located in different buildings so I dont want to have to run two cables to each switch if not necessary, but something tells me that is what is needed especially since I am VLAN'ing.
Let me know, thanks again all for putting up with my somtimes stupid questions
