I have a small office network that has:
ISP: 100Mbps up / 100Mbps down
Firebox M200 (Firewall/Router) 8 x 1Gbe ports / 3.2Gbps Firewall throughput
Cisco SG200 1Gbe Switch / 26 port
*Planned 10Gbe Switch (not sure what to get yet to replace the existing switch)
3 x Ubiquiti AC Pro WAPS
SUPERMICRO SERVER Dual XEON E5-... 138GB RAM / 72TB Storage RAID-Z2 / 10Gbe SPF card / 4 1Gbe ports
The purpose of getting 10Gbe is to achieve:
Faster throughput from the WAPS to the backup Server
Faster throughput form the LAN to the backup Server
Decongest traffic from WAPS having 6 workstations on each to Internet
Share large files between workstations and from workstation to Server
a) Would putting each WAP on a 10Gbe port on a switch be faster than putting each WAP on a 1Gbe port on a switch that is connected to the Server via the 10Gbe port on that same switch given that the Unifi UAP-AC-HD has a 5Ghz speed of 1300Mbps?
a) How to get Time Machine traffic to bypass router? b) Do I Trunk multiple VLANS with switch to client computers? c) How would I get Time Machine to only go through the VLAN I setup on the Mac?
a) If I have 6 clients on each of the three Unifi WAPS does having each of those WAPS connected to a separate 10gbe port give me any advantage of decongesting traffic to the internet if the Router/Firewall is only 1Gbe? b) Does it give me any speed boost for backing up to the Server that is connected via 10gbe.
a) How do I get traffic/files that is shared between workstations to bypass the router yet still have those workstations have access to internet. VLANS I'm sure any advice on how that would be setup basically?
Here is how I thought I would setup this network:
Firewall -> 10gbe switch
10Gbe switch a) SFP port to FreeNas server with 10Gbe NIC
10Gbe switch b) Cat6a from 10Gbe-T ports to UNIFI WAPS
10Gbe switch c) 1Gbe ports to the rest of 1Gbe clients/workstations
*WAPS will be moved to 1Gbe ports depending on the feedback I get here. VLANS and Trunking need some figuring out. Any advice please.
