2 Fireboxes, 1 WAN on 1 firebox, 2 WANs other firebox, 1 metro-E between
We have a setup that I am not satisfied with and am looking for advice on our setup:
m4600 active/passive cluster (both with additional 1x(4x10Gb fiber module))
WAN (2) - Fiber Internet 100mbsx100mbs, Cable modem 300mbsx20mbs
Metro-E - 100mbs (connects to location 2)
m670 active/passive cluster (both with additional 1x(4x10Gb fiber module))
WAN (1) - Cable Modem 300mbsx20mbs
Metro-E - 100mbs (connects to location 1)
All Fiber connections are converted to copper at their demarc, though we are trying to change that. FYI, the metro-E is a private connection via ISP. VLANs are allowed on the metro-E interfaces.
Because of the low latency, we would like to use the Fiber Internet for both locations' VoIP and other low-latency traffic. We would like to use the cable modems as failover and low-priority/data traffic. We have about 650 people that use the internet with spikes throughout the day. I am not so much worried about getting recommendations on internet increases (we are working on those) as I am about getting information about how to connect/do the routing for the two firebox clusters.
Does anybody have any thoughts? We are a school and are just trying to get some other opinions.
Thank you in advance.
