Chapter 4  Networking Applications

You can deploy S3100-52P Ethernet switch on many types of networks, such as enterprise networks and broadband access networks. Following are several typical networking applications.

4.1  Broadband Ethernet Access for Residential Communities

On the broadband access network of a residential community, an S3100-52P Ethernet switch is located in the center. It is downlinked to S2000 series switches to reach the Ethernet users and uplinked to a core Layer 3 switch through a GE extension module to connect to the MAN backbone.

4.2  Application for Connecting Branches or Small- to Medium-Sized Enterprises

For small-to medium-sized enterprises or branches of a large enterprise, S3100-52P Ethernet switch can serve as a downstream device connected to the backbone switch, and can be connected to the headquarters or other branches through Layer 3 switches or routers. As the enterprise size increases, the network also can expand by subtending the S3100-52P Ethernet switch.

4.3  Application in Large Enterprise and Campus Networks

In a large enterprise or campus network, the S3100-52P Ethernet switch can operate on the access layer. They are uplinked to layer 3 switches, S3600 Series or S5600 Series for example; and uplinked to a layer 3 switch. These switches together provide a network-wide intranet solution that covers Gigabit-to-backbone and 100 Mbps-to-desktop.
