I have recently moved DLSW+ and SANSw configuration from our wan routers to 7206 dlur routers. Before our wan router were doing wan aggregation along with dlsw and snasw .
Now 7206 routers are only doing dlsw/snasw and WAN routers are only doing wan aggregation for our network.
I am pretty new to IBM networking and like to know what is the advantage and disadvantage of running dlsw/snasw on the same router. We are also planning to move to TN3270 so I think it will be good to have wan router also do snasw and 7206 will only do dlsw+.
Also, how sansw is forwarding papcket to upstrream CIP router which is connected to host via escon. Does packet get encapsulated at 7206 or 7513 CIP routers. Basicclay i need to know how dlsw/snasw traffic is getting encapsulated and where it does get deenvcapsulated.
Any help will be appreciated.
