Whenever a network designer is in the process of designing the campus infrastructure’s Access Layer block, the following important questions must be answered:
- What are the current and future needs for end-users or node ports in the existing wiring closets of that particular building?
- What kind of hardware can the company or the client afford? Can it afford modular devices? This will determine the degree of scalability in the Access Layer, an important factor that will allow the business to grow.
- Is the existing cabling adequate? Do you have Cat5 or Cat6 . . .
