For a university project we are designing a network across 3 buildings for a small business. I've decided to implement a microwave point-to-point to connect each building.
A lot of microwave point-to-points I've been viewing online come with a layer 2 switch. However, I was wondering if I could just plug it into the router?
If each Microwave dish was connected just from a switch, wouldn't broadcasts from one machine go to all the buildings?
it was going to be a fully meshed in terms of the Microwave links (2 on each building to point at the other 2 buildings), for the network inside each building, has a router connected to DHCP server which has fibreoptics to switch, then the switch distributes cat6 to aprox 20 machines plus 3 wireless access points and a printer
