LAN Network Case Study HELP!
I got this case study to practice today and I am very confused in what to do. I hope you guys will enjoy doing this as I really need the solution to this case study described bellow.
"You are the manufacturer of a LAN that has increased the number of users by a factor of three over the past couple of years. You have been adding users by increasing the number of switches and switch ports on the network. Now users are complaining that network response is slowing and even their computers seem slower. You monitor the network for a few days and find that broadcast frames constitute a high percentage of your network traffic. What can you do to contain the broadcasts? What network reconfiguration might you have to do?"
