ISDN And SDSL Load Sharing
Posted on 2004-09-29
I have a high profile remote site which is currently using a E1 Frame Relay for its primary and a 10-channel ISDN as its backup connectivity. The E1 is pretty congested at the moment which I am addressing by having a 2nd E1 installed (as I said they are high-profile !). Anyway I have ordered a 1Meg SDSL connection and plan to use this for backup until the second E1 arrives (looking at a couple of months - God Bless carriers !!!!)
My question is this:
Can I configure the ISDN and SDSL to do some kine od load sharing in the event of a failure ? I have already built the Frame/SDSL scenario for other offices and it works fine using GRE tunnels & IPSec.........It just seems a bit of a waste of 1/2 a Meg of bandwidth on the ISDN sitting idle if I can use it...............
