I have a customer who has multiple internet connections with multiple ISPs and would like to implement load balancing between his different links.
I know there should be a kind of ISP coordination for BGP routing; but can somebody assist me with the following:
1- explain to me the detailed requirements and whether the customer should buy his own public IP block from RIPE or a similar internet coordination center?
2- In this case, do we need other that the perimeter router to achive the desired redundancy?
3- On the other hand, what are the advantages of Link Load Balancers over the traditional BGP dual homing such as the F5 Link Controller product in the below link:
Does Cisco have a similar product?
Appreciate your help.
