Isolate MAC network

hi

Currently the layer 2 switch acting as our access device, lets one user per port to connect.

we have a new requirement to connect a MAC network to this access device.

I was thinkning of configuring a separate vlan for the MAC network on the access device and then connecting a dedicated hub/switch on an access port with the following config to get this working

configuration on our Cisco access switch (connected to the new switch dedicated for MAC)

vlan M

name MAC-network

interface GigabitEthernet0/27

description -- conenct to mac network

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport trunk allowed vlan M

switchport mode trunk

Is this the ideal way of setting it up to ensure traffic does not pass through our existing network sicne there are huge file transfers that are going to happen between mac devices connecting on this new switch

Hi,

I think, you can do it either way..

1. By enabling Trunk in both switches and by putting all port of switch dedicated fo MAC in VLAN M. or

2. Simply connecting new switch (dedicated fo MAC Network) to old cisco Switch on interface GigabitEthernet0/2 ( in VLAN M) through cross cable.

Thanks..
