Obviously the aim of the former is to have the management of the access port local to our equipment rooms where we have physical access, and reduce the cost of having to deploy a remote switch in order to control the access to our network.
If the former is possible, is there any different config that our customer will need to configure compared with a standarl l2protocol-tunnel?
Still working on this (but without a lab to play with). Attaching a piccie to help with the concept if it helps anyone.
The main issue is one of control. Can we ensure that the end point Access Device is just that, a single device (e.g. using port security maximums as it's an access port), or would it be possible for a switch / hub to be placed on the end, connecting multiple devices to our vlan (i.e. we'd need a switch at the remote end such as solution B in order to manage it).
L2TP is a tunneling protocol from what I know, and is used for tunneling VPN connections. Trunking on switchports is different (industry standard is IEE802.1Q).
In Solution A the ports that are connected to PC (hosts) are usualy configured as access ports. The ports between switches are trunk ports that facilitates forwarding of all VLANs traffic in your network. If you have all switch ports in access mode you can have only one vlan in the network.
In Solution A you can configure that Access Device to be in a VLAN on it on and you can control what it can access in your network.
