Our company internet provider set us up with a new modem which would deliver faster speeds and has the IBGP failover ability. In order to use the IBGP failover we would need to designate 1 (or 2?) IP's from our small block of IP's, or get rid of the current ones and use a larger block of IP's.
Does it make sense to just consolidate our current IP's instead of purchasing a larger block of IP's? We currently have 5 public (outside of the broadcast)
Is it best practice/ industry standard to purchase larger amount of public IP's?
