This is all about how you choose to view/organize/manage the connections. Neither the patch panel nor the switch know or care which port is connected to which other port. That being said, I totally get and agree with your method and idea. It makes it much easier from an administrative/management standpoint. One suggestion might be to purchase a second ...

There's no need to match patch panel numbers with switch port numbers. It's not a scalable solution, and really doesn't add management value for an environment this size. Populate the drops that you intend to use and ensure that you have some free ports on the switch for expansion. You can label the cable ends if necessary. Buy a wire marker booklet or ...

Link aggregation can occur between a device and 2 or more Cisco switches as long as they're in a stack or on cores using VSS for example. Usually, a good rule of thumb is if there is just one mgmt interface controlling a stack of switches, then it will have one mac-address-table upon which Etherchannel or LACP can be used to track the IPs and MACs that are ...

Connect the Airtel to the switch first. Then configure the Airtel with a free IP address on the same subnet as the other hosts and then change the default router on the three desired hosts which need to connect through the Airtel router. If you use DHCP on the LAN, make sure you have DHCP configured (disabled) correctly before connecting the Airtel device ...
