we are "upgrading" our line next month, switching providers, and so going for Ceragon based connection to ISP. Can't wait for it, instead of going thru other smaller providers
Well, as we might as well resale connectivity in our area, and everything is now gonna be distributed from that one particular connection node, I would also like to have a good sleep, so I thought about some fail-over solution, and VRRP comes to mind. What do you think of following plan? (bear with me, I am not good at networking that much, it is just that with MT it just works
Ceragon (30 - 40mbit) -> switch -> VRRP [PC SuperMicro | PC SuperMicro] -> switch -> [RBxy -> RBxy | RBxy -> RBxy]
My brother wanted to have even radios in those PCs, but I am not sure about that, if you are delivering 30 - 50mbit (hopefully in one year) to other sites. So I thought it might be better to use those SuperMicro boards based PCs with 2x gibabit Ethernets in VRRP mode, to create fail-over, and distribute to particular subnodes on RB to RB PTP basis.
Does such set-up sound reasonable, or is it waste of resources to think in PTP RB to RB way, and should be easily install 6x radio directly into PC router? Or is it better (due to relatively hight traffic, maintanace wise etc.) to separate main router as I proposed?
Thanks a lot,
