Hey guys,

 

I have question about backbone networks. Need Help!

 

If an organisation has 3 departments.

Key servers are in different departments – so a user from 1 department X reads and writes to file servers in another department Y. And both users access mail from a server in department Z.

The traffic and broadcast storms originating in one department is causing bandwidth saturation in other departments.

The core of the network is slow and is unable to meet the response time requirements of various critical business applications.

 

What is the solution based on core technology design, LAN technologies and design solutions to address inter-departmental traffic issues?

 

Thanks!

We would need to know the current setup in order to help with how to resolve it.  Most likely if your having bandiwidth problems your using old equipment like a network hub.  Hub's broadcast all traffic recieved to all computers directly connected to the hub.  So a solution would be to use newer equipment like a router or switch.  A switch was mainly used to interconnect computers that were capable of different connection speeds.  A router will send traffic to the destination computer instead of all computers connected to it like a hub does.

I won't answer what is obviously a home work question but YeahBleeping is on the right track. Think about the equipment that you would use and what functions each uses when it comes to network traffic or how each handles traffic. And I think you'll figure it out.


Hope this helps thumbup.gif
