Recently, we recorded a webinar to explain a design concept frequently used by iparchitechs.com to build and migrate WISP, FISP and Telco networks – separation of network functions. It centers around simplification of roles within an ISP network. It also explores the use of lower-cost commodity network equipment to maximize the service area for a given ISP footprint while meeting key requirements like scale, redundancy and capacity.
Topics that were covered include:
- ROSv7 basics, lab setup and /routing/route/
- BGP and OSPF for IPv4 and IPv6
- L3 hardware offload for IPv4/IPv6 unicast and nat hardware offload for IPv4
