I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to networking, so excuse my ignorance for asking this. I did try to post this on the Cisco support forums, but kept getting told it was spam haha, so I hope this is the appropriate place to post
Essentially we have 2 separate networks, one for our VoIP system, running off VLAN100 (As it was originally configured to host both voice and data) that contains all of our handsets, and the router for the dedicated VoIP internet connection. One of the switches in this network is a Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series. We are getting a new CCTV camera that is PoE, and want to hook it up to our other network that is dedicated for data. It contains all the workstations, servers, and separate router for a dedicated data internet connection. But the switches on this network don't have PoE. My question is, is there a way of separating 2 ports on the Cisco switch so that the PoE CCTV camera can connect to it for power, and then another connection going to the data network switch, so it essentially becomes part of the data network, without any interference from the VoIP network that is connected to all the other ports on the switch?
If someone would be able to let me know if this is doable or not, and if so, I'd love to know what exactly has to be setup for this to happen. I'm new to networking, I've only ever programmed this Cisco switch once for some minor adjustments, but I'm not sure what even to search to get this setup, so I'm a bit stuck.
I thought that maybe having the separate VLAN's would work, but would prefer to have 2 ports working totally independent of the rest of the ports on the switch.
Thanks in advance for any help!! I hope this makes sense haha
