CIS 505 Discussion post responses.
Respond to the colleagues posts regarding:
• Based on your study this week, what routing and switching protocols would you choose for your Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) network? What about if you had to work in a small company? Explain your thought processes. What transmission medium would you use in a larger company that had multiple campuses? Remember, you’re not only working out these ideas for yourself, but you’re sharing them with your classmates. Approach this discussion from the viewpoint of a meeting where you are making recommendations to a team.

For a small business I would recommend the Cisco 350x series stackable managed switches. ” Equipped with advanced security capabilities, these switches are capable of deploying 10 Gigabyte Ethernet. Configuration wizards and true stacking make it easy to configure, manage, and troubleshoot multiple physical switches as a single device – allowing for future expansion”. (“Cisco 350X Series Stackable Managed Switches,” n.d.) As for a routing protocol an Enhanced Interior Routing Protocol (EIGRP) is recommended for a small network such as a home/business. This is the best choice for private networks because of the balance it provides between speed, scalability, and the ease for the user to manage it.
For a a larger company I would recommend Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), as is mostly designed for larger networks. It requires a little more management, however it is worth it in order to accomplish the heavy workload this system will have to handle. I would like to ask my classmates how would they handle this if they started from scratch? Does anyone have experience in working with developing networks from the bottom up? What do you Guys/Gals opine on dynamic protocol?
Please feel free to comment below and reply with your best thoughts and recommendations as we try to learn these very important lessons of Information Technology.
RR’s post states the following:
I would choose the Routing Information Protocol (RIP) for a Small Office/Home Office (SOHO). RIP is a protocol that routers can use to exchange network topology information. It is characterized as an interior gateway protocol, and is typically used in small to medium-sized networks (“What is a”, n.d.). RIP is also easy to configure and use, and is well known and widely used.
If I had to work in a company, I would choose the Open Shortest Path First protocol (OSPF) as my preferred protocol. Mainly because the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) designed OSPF to be a scalable, efficient, and quickly converging routing protocol. Overall, the protocol help’s ease the pain of network administration and troubleshooting (Heaton, 2000).
A transmission medium is a physical path between the transmitter and the receiver. In other words, it is the channel through which data is sent from one place to another. I would use the Shielded Twisted Pair (STP) if I were a large company that had multiple campuses. STP is used in fast-data-rate Ethernet and in voice and data channels of telephone lines. Advantages include better performance at a higher data rate, eliminates crosstalk, and is comparatively faster than other mediums (“Type of Transmission”, n.d.).
