I have 4 remote sites on FR connections coming back to the head office on ATM. Each site has one voice, three data and one management VLAN. All VLANs are trunked with dot1Q.
My frame-relay/ATM provider is upgrading us to a product which amounts to a metro ethernet type solution, with remote branches running at 10Mb/s and the central office being 45Mb/s. There isn't enough room here to ask the questions I have in my head, but here are a few things I am in a quandry about.
1. Should I simply move the meat of my current branch router configs to L2/L3 capable switches, transfer all of the VLAN data to them and make one interface the routed one.
2. VTP? Is there any downside to running it in server mode at the core central office and client in all of the branches.
3. I have SRST for my voice system setup through analog lines in each branch connected to fxo/fso modules in each router. Is there anyway to do SRST without a router sitting in each branch?
If you can think of other issues I may run into, please let me know.
