I am about to change jobs into a primary school where i have just been placed in charge of the whole ICT infrastructure. This is the first time i have done anything like this and have obviously been doing a little research.
Just a few questions though.
What sort of network layout has been implemented in your schools?
I have been reading about seperating collision domains and using switches with VLANs to reduce broadcast traffic. Is this going overboard. I have not yet seen how much ICT is in place so the network could be of any size.
What are usually the best practices to follow in schools when laying out a network?
I ask these questions as although they have a network, it may need to be upgraded.
Thanks in advace for any advice.
