Initial WISP design.
Posted on 2005-04-18
Wow, I've been given a great big task... design a network from the ground up for a Wireless ISP.
The wireless side has been handled (ie all the connectivity between nodes etc..) but what to put on the connection side to the hard wired upstream ISP.
I have been told to use a Catalyst switch, some said use a PIX and others said to use a linux box as a router!! Yikes... Where to start?
This is a clean sheet and I'll be gald to have some help!
Only information at the moment is an OC3 dedicated fiber connection terminated with a Quantum box that hands off ethernet. At the moment there is just a handfull of ips assinged to deal with.
What are you suggestions?
