  • Page 71: Reset To Default, Reset System, Exit Telnet, Using The Baystack Switch, Configuration Examples

    • Management using SNMP Configuration Examples The BayStack 303 and 304 switches are well suited for the initial migration from shared 10BASE-T segments to dedicated bandwidth for switch connections between segments, end-stations, 100BASE-T Fast Ethernet servers, and fiber or copper Fast Ethernet backbone connections. The switches also function well as segment or desktop switches.

  • Page 72

    BayStack 304 switch as a segment switch Figure 3-3 illustrates how a BayStack 304 switch can be used as a segment switch to alleviate server and network center contention and to provide better ratio connections to 10 Mb/s users. This configuration also offers an additional eight dedicated 10 Mb/s connections for users.

  • Page 73: Spanning Tree Protocol

    The BayStack 303 switch can be used as a desktop switch to provide 100 Mb/s connections to the server and network center and to give dedicated 10 Mb/s connections to up to 23 users instead of shared 10 Mb/s connections (see Figure 3-4).
