We are planning to user VLAN pair mode using Ether channel trunks (Inline-on-a-stick) mainly to over come the lack of 10 GigE interfaces which would prevent us from adopting traditional in-line architecture for firewalls with 10 GigE interfaces.
Do you or your customers have experience with Inline-on-a-stick? Could you please share your advices and any word of caution we need to keep in mind?
I do know the Bypass can't work in this mode, which we are planning to address by deploying multiple IPS 4270 appliances and Ether Channels.
Any suggestions are appreciated!
