WAN Redundancy Setup

Hi,

I am trying to setup a redundant connection to WAN. I have two WAN routers but only one Nexus5k. Pls see attached (high level logical) concept diagram. By using N5k as L2 and implementing HSRP on the WAN routers, I am hoping to get desired redundancy, in case one WAN Link or Router goes down HSRP & OSPF would be able to take care of it and route traffic to secondary WAN path.

Do you have any other ideas or this will work in all possible failed scenario? (I know N5k is single point of failure)

Thanks.

Re: WAN Redundancy Setup

This design option works

However keep in mind that your design has single point of failure in the nexus side if you need it end to end redundant you need to consider adding a second switch to the topology

Hope this help
