We need to roll out around 315 ISR2 routers to locations all across the US. Some of these sits are MPLS and some are VPN. What strategies/methodologies would work best for this? Any input is appreciated.


Thank you,

If you haven't submitted the order yet, I would consider making it part of the overall purchase.

There are any number of firms that can support this size of a roll out, unless you have the staff available.


By outsourcing the deployment you can better focus on the design, test and turn up.

I need more info, particularly your configuration.


The reason why I'm asking is because routers, by default, support an "archaic" form of ZeroTouch.  When a router gets an IP address by DHCP it will immediately search for a file.  This file can be anything.  It can be a configuration template.  You can even say that it downloads the configuration template into the startup-config and if you put the router into your MPLS link it will get a DHCP IP address for someone to apply the "finishing touches" to the configuration at the remote site.
