We currently have remote sites running 1600 series routers and 350 bridges with wireless WAN connections to other sites. We are going to add a frame circuit and 2600XM router into these sites as backup for wireless. My question is can I use the 2600XM to take advantage of the bandwidth of the frame circuit and the wireless link? What kind of card would I need to add to the 2600 router?
What are you using for your wireless WAN connections? You could plug the wireless link in to an ethernet port (if you have a 2651XM you will have two ethernet ports). Then you would need to make sure that the EIGRP metric is the same for the wireless link and frame interface and you would automatically load balance. If you want to encrypt the wireless traffic you could get a DES/3DES encryption module that would fit in your non-WIC slot and upgrade the IOS to FW/IDS/IPSEC/3DES.
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 custome...
