We are opening a new office that is roughly 20km from another core site. We plan on provisioning 2 x DS3 between sites and likely have a requirement to support the same subnets (VLANs) at both locations. Let?s say we have our core site (SA1) and new site (SA2). Core infra will be at SA1 (WAN, Inet, Servers, etc).
SA1 has 2 x 6513?s running HSRP and VTP load balancing ? core of the LAN. Has anyone spanned VLAN?s across sites like this and know of any major concerns to watch out for in doing so? One concern is delays from L3 lookups to the remote MSFC?s ? MLS should help here for any cached routes/decisions.
We are currently doing what you are talking about for some developers that need to see certain Layer 2 data @ our company but from the west coast to the east coast of the US with latency of 76ms and higher without any complaints.
L2TPv3 works great for this setup. Just requires advanced ip 12.4.10 and higher on the routers.
I haven't seen any issues and the tunnels have been up for over 6-7 months.
thanks for the info, it helps, we are planning to span approx 40 vlans with 450 users at new site. Is your setup is similar to what I mentioned and if you can provide some more details around actual implementation it would be great.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3.
16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted
towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are
looking for early feedback from customers befor...
