Our company used to be hub and spoke with cable modems and firewall site to site tunnels. We have now invested in Comcast ens service.
ENS, is diff than EDI. ENS is a wan, mpls type of circuit where as edi is pure fiber out to the internet, just for you guys who didnt know.
So there are 20 sites. They all point back to one site, lets call it our data center, where are actual ISP is. Just to clarify, Comcast is the wan provider but the service stops once it gets to the data center site. Then there is a separate isp connection that takes that traffic to the internet.
there are two types of the ens service. one involves trunking, where the tags are carried from the individual sites and the other (ours) is essentially one large layer 2 network and we have to manage the layer 3 portion of it. I would like some advice, best practice, traffic optimal advice on how to design the subnet structure.
2 quick notes
*i know a backup connection is optimal, but that is not a problem right now
*we would like for the firewalls to stay at the local school site since we bought then, and also there is a supermassive giant firewall at the data center. Thank you
