Remote Location Network
This is my standard build out for one of our remote locations.
This rack contains (top down):
- 24x port patch panel
- 24x port switch w/12 ports PoE
- 4U PC over IP virtual machine server
- 2U Battery backup
The FS726TP switch is configure with 2x VLANS, ports 1-12, and 25 are one VLAN, ports 13-24, and 26 are another VLAN.
The first VLAN is PoE on ports 1-24, and this allows us to supply power to our PoE VoIP phones (yellow cables). Port 25 is the uplink for the VoIP system.
The second VLAN, is standard 10/100 with a 1000 on port 26. We connected the end user terminals to ports 13-24 (white cables), and we connect port 26 to our Virtual Machine server.
If power should go out in our building the battery backup will continue to power our phones, as they receive power via PoE.
