887va or 867VAE-K9

Trying to choose between

867VAE-K9 and 887va for VDSL2+ and a 2nd WAN (cable) for redundancy backup.

Any thoughts?

Do they support HTTP proxy (upstream proxy)?

Would they work as a pass-through modem?

Would they accept a line from a pass-through modem (2nd WAN)?

Would they balance 2 WANs or can do redundancy (one at a time - with auto fail-over) only?

What about the OS versions/upgrade releases for them?

Any QoS differences?

Maybe it is batter to go 2900 series with relevant interface cards?

Any help appreciated, thanks.

Artur,

There are two WAN ports in the 867VAE-K9 , one is layer 3 GE  and other is VDSL/ADSL over the pots.

You can use those as primary and back up and can alse be used as a load balancing over the two providers.

Since GE can be used for ethernet handoff connections like (cable) and other port can be used as ADSL/VDSL line over the POTS and it has an ATM connectivity.

for load balancing over you should have to use a route map and match the interface and access-list which needs to be permit and can PAT over it.

Best example is given in the following doc:-

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk648/tk361/technologies_configuration_example09186a0080950834.shtml

Since 887VA only supports VDSL/ADSL on a single termination so it will be hard to achcieve redundancy/load balancing.

Cisco 887VA

#

Multimode VDSL2/ADSL2/2+ over basic telephone service

#

4-port 10/100-Mbps managed switch

#

Yes (Cisco 887VAW)

#

Yes (Cisco 887VAG)

#

No

In the 887 You can create a SVI and make switch interface as routed ;however this is not a suggested method for ethernet termination.

So how come that

https://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/access/800/860-880-890/hardware/installation/guide/HIG880-860.pdf

states the following (that would mean no load balancing):

"The Cisco 866VAE, 867VAE, 866VAE-K9, and 867VAE-K9 routers each have two WAN ports. Only one

of the two ports can be active at any given time."
