I need to determine the best solution for a client who has budget constraints.
1. I need to use the same connection to the internet (bonded Ts at 4.5 MB)
2. I need to make sure mission critical traffic has priority.
3. I need to make sure "guest" traffic is permitted but does not interfere with mission critical traffic.
I believe I can do this with Cisco layer 3 switches such as 3750's and separating the LAN traffic into 2 subnets. However, I am not quite sure I understand how that will be configured. I believe I would place the switches between the endusers and the the firewall, and have one core switch and two switches for each subnet.
Does anyone know of a rather inexpensive approach to this situation? I like Cisco switches because most of the infrastructure is Cisco, but I don't have to use it if there is a less expensive solution.
Thanks in advance.
