Hi, not sure if this is commonly done but I am trying to confirm if there are any downsides to using a Lan Switch to multiplex a Fat Pipe (10G) and than using a switch carve that 10G out into multiple 1G interface using VLANs. I would assume that with the switches (4948, nexus etc) this seems viable however are there any operational challenges associated. Using a SVI instead of a P2P physical interface across a WAN is one but is there a downside? I can't seem to come up with any negatives. Essentially instead of having the SP carve out the circuit we are doing it using a traditional switch as a sort of multiplexer. This makes it more convenient and I guess cost effective as well just want to confirm if there are any operational/configuration challenges associated. Thx
I have this problem too.
