Network schematic showing vlan separation

4 ethernet cables are used to connect the 4 rooms with each other. The 4 switches are connected in a ring topology. Vlan seperation ensures all cables are utilized fully and no loops occur.



See the other tabs on this page for a description of the various parts.
