Unifi Network Design for a Hotel

Hi Everyone,

 

We are currently in the process of re-doing the network at a small hotel, and would like some input on the best way to configure a USG pro, given that we have 3 independent networks -- what IPs to use, etc. We are currently using a sophos gateway for the corporate & VOIP, a nomadix gateway for the guest network.

 

At a high level, our network needs to be split into 3 areas:

 

Corporate - Used for servers, Office PCs, Impact Printers, Shared Printers, Shared Files, ETC

 

Guest - Accessed by hotel guests, currently there are a bunch of netgear APs located in the guest hotel rooms.

 

Voip - Phones -- we have approximately 100 phones located throughout the property,

 

In terms of wiring, due to wiring locations / limitations, some of the office PCs must go through the network jack on the phones. As well, some of the guest network APs must share a cable run to the server room with a phone.

Re: Unifi Network Design for a Hotel

What switches are you using?

Are you planning on keeping the Netgear access points?

 

Are you comfortable with creating VLANs?

Re: Unifi Network Design for a Hotel

We are currently using a bunch of 48 port Unify POE switches.

The plan would be to replace the netgears with unifi In-Walls or ACs, but not immediately across the board.

My only concern with VLANs would be that given the quantity of access points in the guest rooms, I'd like to be able to assign the vlan based on a device rather than based on the port that its plugged into.
