Opinions on Extending Network/VLANs to a remote Office
We have Corp Office with all of the Company Resources (Mail, web, files) and 30 Employees there all the time, Remote Sales Office A wth 30 People at Most, though maybe 10 Average, and Remote Sales Office B with 10 People and average of maybe 4.
The Remote Offices have VOIP Phones and Access the Corp Resources and Internet through the Corp Office Connection.
All offices have SG300 Switches.
My Question is for Bandwidth efficiency is it better to Extend the Corp Office VLAN to the Remote Office and then Layer 3 VLAN Routing to the Local Remote Office Subnet, or is it better to Extend the Remote Office VLAN to the Corp Office and have the Corp Office do all of the routing?
Its Currently setup as Follows
Remote Office A
Remote Office B
Local VLANs 101, 204,192,198
VLANs 102, 106
VLANs 104, 107
Extended VLANs 101, 204, 192
Extended VLANs 101, 204, 192
VLANs 204 and 192 are for Customers to Access the internet via WiFi Access Point at the remote office.
So Should I bring the 102, 104, 106, 107 back to Corp? I'm concerned that the 101 Subnet and its Broadcast/ARP Traffic may be clogging the pipe.
There is no WAN Subnet, Its an Ethernet handoff on either end, so its like a Ethernet Bridge. We have each end plugged into an SG300 Switch. If they were plugged into a Unmanaged switch it would just pass the traffic like any other switch port.
I was just thinking of Subnet Traffic/Broadcast volume. The remote offices have less traffic/broadcasts, so extending them to the Corp might use less of the WAN connection vs. extending the Corp VLAN to the remote offices.
