Airport Network Infrastructure
Proposed structure and hardware for IAC Airport facility, specifically for PITAS accelerator area.
External network access will be routed through a small Atom-based Linux server box which will handle floating and static IP DHCP requests.
- Server box has 2 network interfaces, 1 10/100 Fast Ethernet, 1 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet
- External network will be connected to Fast Ethernet interface
- Internal network will be connected to Gigabit Ethernet interface
Internal network will be split into two zones:
Internal network interface will be uplink for the Control network.
Control network machines will be served by a Dell PowerConnect 5324 24-port Gigabit managed switch. This switch will have a fiber transceiver installed, providing electrical isolation for connection to the Accelerator network. Fiber will be 1000Base-SX with SC connectors.
Accelerator network will be connected to the Control network via a TRENDnet Fiber Converter, which will serve as uplink for the Netgear ProSafe 16-port Gigabit unmanaged switch. All Accelerator network machines will be serviced by that switch.
Proposed networking and server hardware is listed below, with itemized price breakdowns.
