I'm assuming you are talking about securing the wireless link? Between the SXTs use 802.11n with NV2 and use a security key. Then use VPLS to provide layer 2 bridging. This setup will provide the least overhead.

Re: Split Horizon Bypass

As long as you have a full mesh the clients should be able to communicate with each other. Split horizon is just used to prevent bridging loops. If you do not have a full mesh then you will need to disable split horizon and use STP or RSTP. Are you using VPLS or BGP signaled VPLS?
