QOS -- single vs multiple Internet connections ?
Posted on 2012-09-18
CISCO talked about doing a separate pipe for INTERNET which is OK, but means we cannot automatically reallocate resources.
• we purchase one 5MB pipe for non-Internet items and another 5MB pipe for Internet items
• two months into the project we realize that on average we use 7MB for non-Internet items and 3MB for Internet items
If we purchase one 10MB pipe for everything and do QOS, policy based routing (i.e. ip address ### gets QOS priority #1, 7MB for non-Internet items and 3MB for Internet items, etc) on our routers would it be better ?
We would get both connections from the same vendor and are not worried about having a "backup" if one connection fails.
