This samples of complete, secure, stable, and affordable network architectures are designed for companies with approximately 60-90 people.
In these networks, an ASA 5500-X firewall is used to prevent hackers, viruses, and prevent company’s confidential data from leaking out.
If the enterprise requires VPN, the ASA 5500-X can help us establish a secure IPSECVPN with the partner or company headquarters, and the out-of-office personnel can securely join the company network through SSLVPN. In this network we can also use the routing function of ASA 5500-X firewall instead of the router.
The WS-C2960CX-8PC-L and WS-C2960CX-8PC-L switches provide the power supply to the AP through the POE, which can help us eliminate the hassle of arranging power lines and save costs. The 2960X-24PSQ-L, a PoE switch, has 8 PoE power supply, no fan, no noise pollution, and is easy to install anywhere in the office area.
WS-C2960X-48TS-L and WS-C2960X-24TS-LL are used to connect to office computers and printers.
The Cisco 2960X Gigabit Switch features stable performance, fast forwarding speed, advanced QOS features, and convenient visual management.
Through VLAN and QOS, enterprises can achieve different access rights to different departments. Through DAI, external devices can be privately connected to the enterprise network to enhance network security and stability. The Cisco 2960X Gigabit Switch features lower power consumption and advanced energy management capabilities.
The AIR-AP1832i-x-K9C and AIR-AP1832i-x-K9 are chosen as the Access Points of WIFI.
The AIR-AP1832i-x-K9C has the ability to manage and configure other APs. It not only realizes the unified management of the enterprise AP, but also the user’s non-aware roaming, which can help us save a lot of expenses for purchasing the wireless controller.
