We are all aware that all our post offices are to be migrated to the
new network technology. CEPT Mysore and Data Centre Mumbai (CBS) are
to be connected through two Net work service providers ie. (SIFY &
BSNL). The entire network service is provided by SIFY.
In this present scenario almost all of our post offices are using
unmanaged switch (24 PORT or 16 PORT) to connected with LAN. The
unmanaged switch is a plug and play device (any computer can be
connected to any port in the switch)
On to this new network migration technology all the unmanaged switches
are to be replaced with managed switches. All over India SIFY has
agreed to setup the new network migration technology in Department of
Whereas network is concerned the network is predesigned with respect
to number of ports in the switches. If an office working with 48
computers and the network system is designed and cabling is done for
two 24 port unmanaged switches, the same has to be replaced with the
similar two 24 port managed switches.
Whereas SIFY has supplied one 48 port managed switch instead of two 24
port managed switches. It is not feasible to have a good network
environment either new net work cabling has to be done for one 48 port
managed switch or two 24 port managed switches are to be supplied.
Hence it is requested that either new net work cabling has to be done
for any number of port of managed switches provided by SIFY or the
existing port of unmanaged switches are to be replaced with managed
switches with same ports in all the post offices.
