Re: Cisco Campus Network with 4 core Switches and 2 Distribution Switches.

Hi Mohammad,

 

we are  planning to established a campus network, Client has mentioned 4 Core switches and 2 distributes switches, 

I am confused with the requriment of 4 Core Switches, I didnt see the topology where we can use the 4 core switches with the 2 Distribution switches. I am talking about cisco recommended implementation. i want to know in which campus network we can implement 4 core switches and 2 Distribution switches.

It does sound weird 4 Cores and 2 Distribution switches.  It is possible that they have multiple buildings, so something like this:

 

(Scroll down to multiple buildings)

But that scenario should require more than just 2 Distribution switches at least 4 2 for each location at minimum.  Have you discussed this with the customer and gathered any information such as review their existing design and what they are trying to accomplish etc?

There no document clearly give you picture for you for the 4 switches connected as Core, the one showed exactly similar other side of 2 core switches. how you connect distribution to 4 switches what fail over scenario you looking for redundancy ?

 

you need to make small HLD what you understand from that design and ask for suggestion so we can help you based on base requirement.
