DC WAE Design help

Unanswered Question
Jun 9th, 2008

Attached is a visio of main DC WAN edge. Right now our WAE (7341) is placed directly off of ncmc-dc-rt01. Now we need to start to optimize traffice comming from all three top routers (ncmc-dc-rt01, ncmc-dc-rt05, and ncmc-dc-rt04). Were would be the best placement and IP address shceme for the WAE? Keep in mind the ncmc-dc-rt05 is a 3750g.

I have this problem too.

I might consider putting the WAEs off the aggregation switches and doing hardware redirection (L2 redirect, mask assign, redirect in) on the 4900s. Otherwise you won't be able to use all three WAN routers as on will require L2 redirects and the other only support GRE.

Hope that helps,
