Gigabit to the desktop? What for???
I'm really enjoying your CCNA study guide but I was quite surprised to read your recommendation on page 10 of chapter 1 : "we need at a minimum gigabit to the desktop" and tend not to agree.
I would like to argue that Gigabit to the desktop is basically a waste of money unless the users need to transfer huge files within the network, (which probably accounts for less than 5% of all desktops).
Otherwise the IT budget can be put to a much better use by buying a couple of faster servers (obviously THESE go on GigE), simple updating unmanaged 100Base-T switches to managed switches, adding content filtering to the network or a more reliable mesh wifi, etc.
Would love to hear comments on the subject.
