I am in the process of migrating from a single 7513 router to adding a 7206 to my data center. My boss would like me to split my frame relay lines (currently 4 T1's) between the 2 for load balancing and redundancy. I have several sites with dual connections back here for redundancy purposes but they are running off of a single router so load balancing is not an issue before the move. How do I insure that load balancing takes place after the split takes place. And to complicate matters, I am running switches with MSFC and router cards which control the bulk of the in-building routing that will now have connections to 2 routers for external traffic. I am in need of some resources (books, courses, etc.) that look into more complex networks. Everything I can find show simplistic networks and don't help much.
Anyone who can point me in the right direction will be a great help. Thanks in advance.
Do you utilize Gigabit Ethernet as your bacKbone between the switches with MSFC cards. I also take it that your core switches also have supervisor cards as well? Does your interfaces on your 7513 allow connection for 1000baseFX? How about your 7206 what kind of interfaces are installed? What kind of CSU/DSU devices to you have. Internal modules or external devices? For reading material did you try the BCMSN ( Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks book)
