Small Campus Suggested Deployment Platforms

SMALL-SITE CAMPUS DESIGN

The small-site campus design is a single access switch or single access switch stack. The demands in the ac­cess layer for wired ports and WLAN devices typically number in the dozens (versus the hundreds in the medium design), with requirements for less than 25 APs. The preferred design strives to minimize cost with minimal num­bers of components and features offered, though advanced and mission critical options are available choices for networks that require these capabilities.

Campus Wired Access and Wireless Access

In the small-site campus design, you make choices for the wired access with a bias towards size and flexibility in order to accommodate the space and power requirements of small sites. Densities and advanced software fea­ture capabilities are not as strong of a requirement, so options with the most economical preference are shown.
