Kindly suggest me the possible way for achieving as desired.
We have two Cisco Switches (Switch â1â & Switch â2â) which is connected to remote end i.e provider's network running with BGP protocol. Diagram attached.
EXISTING NETWORK :-
As of now one non-cisco RAS devices connected with Switch-1 at one end and another end of Non-Cisco RAS with âAccess Switchâ. Traffic from acces devices are follow this path:-
Access Devices --> Access Switch --> Non Cisco RAS device --> Switch-1 --> Remote end (Providers Network).
PROPOSED NETWORK :-
We'll connected Non-Cisco RAS with one more switch i.e Switch-2 which is connected to Providers network running with BGP protocol as like Switch-1.
In case of failure of Switch-1 both WAN Links or WAN ports the traffic from Non-Cisco (RAS) will automaticallty swithover on another switch(Switch-2). i.e In case of Switch-1 WAN Link/Ports failure , path will be as:-
Access Devices --> Access Switch --> Non Cisco RAS device --> Switch-2 --> Remote end (Providers Network).
Points To Remember :-
1)Use of Routing protocols are not recommended on Non-Cisco device(RAS). We can only use static route on the same with Higher Metric towards Switch-2. As Primary route is towards Switch.-1
2) Link between Switch-1 or Switch-2 & NoN Cisco RASD device will always be UP as it is directly connected.
