We currently have a pfsense box and then dumb switch like 30pcs of them located in some weird places like the ceiling or under the table… And we want to upgrade and simplify our connection… so instead of PfsenseBox -> 30dumbswitch branch out… We would like a pfSensebox as our firewall then use a TP-Link Managed Switch 48gigPort Jetstream 4Port SFP 5pcs of them connected to 5 different locations using a SingleMode Fiber then have all end-users connected to specific switch no in-between dumb switch. Have VLAN setup per department (currently only have 1 subnet 10.x.x.x) then Use UAP AC as the main wireless connection… The switch will be set up using STP.
- Can the switch handle the setup?
- Other recommendation about setting it up?
- Should we buy a different Layer3 Switch for VLAN or pfSense can handle it all?
Thanks for the help. Please feel free to recommend or give tips… Thank you.
