I'm not sure where best to place is for this post, so I'll start here and see where I end up.
I'm the admin for a school system - elementary, middle, and high schools, and well as the local board of education. Our current network is broken into subnets, with each school residing in their own subnet.
We're want to change the ip address scheme that we're currently on, so my helper has suggested that we drop the subnets and run everybody through one subnet. His theory is ease of operation, with possibly some performance gain, since not as many routers and switches would be needed.
I still hold the idea that subnets give us an extra layer of protection, since everyone would not be under one big broadcast domain.
If someone out there has any ideas, or suggestions, I would welcome the input.
Thank you,
